She has extensive experience in digestive disorders, IBS, food intolerances and sensitivities, weight loss and also with cancer patients who want to support their healing through nutrition.
As a yoga teacher she integrates yoga therapy into her practice with asanas (postures) that are specific to a client’s health issues as well as breathing and meditation techniques to both calm the body and develop mindfulness. She also practice's Reiki which is particularly beneficial for clients during one on one yoga sessions.
In addition, EFT is a fantastic meridian therapy tool (like acupuncture without the needles) that she has used to help herself and others to overcome barriers such as food cravings, intolerance's, emotional issues, pain and general stress. EFT helps in almost any situation, is particularly beneficial in helping individuals deal with issues that some up while transitioning to a healthy lifestyle. It’s an amazing resource for the emotional issues that surround cancer diagnosis and treatment, also helping with pain management.
