PROFESSIONAL | Education + Career
My studies in BodyTalk include Fundamentals; Principles of Consciousness; BioDynamics, Macrocosmic BodyMind; Matrix Dynamics, BodyTalk Orthopedic Evaluation, Mindscape, Finding Health: Mapping the Healing Process, CDRRII and Soul's Journey: Exploring the Mind and the 3 Brains. My Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine training includes Acupuncture, Guasha, Cupping, Moxibustion, Acupressure, Tuina, Qi Gong and Eastern Nutrition.
My practice started as a BodyTalk Practitioner in 2008 (the beginning of a life transforming journey both on a professional and personal level), Integrated Life Coaching in 2011 (because it made sense) and recently graduated with honours as an acupuncturist (an added service to my practice).
From a young age, Science, Philosophy and Psychology were subjects that always sparked an interest within me. But of course sometimes life doesn't always take on a straight path. And my professional career certainly took on a different road which started in the hospitality industry where my business background and creative skills & training contributed to a successful career accelerated with annual promotions, quarterly bonuses and a prestigous recognition from the Ontario Hostelry Institute as Top 30 Under 30 in 2007. I developed successful client relationships, lifelong friendships with colleagues and it was in this life path where I met my husband. I felt my life was pretty awesome at that point, but my curiosity & desire to understand & learn more about health, the science behind it and its’ connection to life was sparked once again when I was introduced to the BodyTalk System. Personal sessions brought me to better health and mental clarity in such a daring way that I was inspired to start my own health and wellness business practice in 2008 -- the moment where I took a leap of faith + deep trust within to integrate my passions, skills, training and life experiences into a business of service.
Since then, I have been fortunate to cross paths with wonderful teachers and mentors, whom I’m grateful for, they all helped carve a path of success in more ways than I expected - especially BodyTalk Founder, Dr. John Veltheim - whose art for breaking down complex subjects into simple form & techniques is brilliant and amazing. And Dr. Katrin, RAc & Dr. Diane Chung, ND, (Both PaRama 2 BodyTalk Practitioners) – whose kindness, strength and kickass talents continue to inspire and motivate me, personally and professionally.
PERSONAL | Health & Wellness + Family + Social
Fun 5K runs, recreational sports, dancing, playing with my kids, yoga, meditation, dancing, are just some of the activities I engage in to refresh and re-energize. These along with other Self Care practices help me live a balanced lifestyle where I can feel more productive, vibrant, mentally clear, physically strong and socially connected.
My first BodyTalk
experience was back in 2004, when life stresses took a toll on my physical body
and manifested in aggravating back aches and neck pain. After only 2
sessions my symptoms disappeared, stress levels decreased and my passion for
life sciences was re-ignited. My excitement to share the benefits of BodyTalk
continued as I practiced on friends and family at the beginning of my career
and it was incredible to see results and witness shifts and changes in their
health and well-being. Since then BodyTalk sessions have become a natural
part of my self care habits and of course have become an invaluable part of my
family's overall health and personal growth. It's contributed to
shortening recovery time and faster healing process from injuries, surgeries,
and illnesses. Even during both pregnancies, I received BodyTalk
prenatal sessions to boost energy levels, prepare for all stages of pregnancy
and ease some of the discomforts that come with the pregnancy experience.
postnatal sessions was also a big factor to my speedy recovery.
