Co-Founder and Faculty at Alaska Institute of Oriental Medicine, Acupuncture & Massage Therapy

Welcome to the captivating world of holistic healing and wellness! With over 25 years of experience in Oriental medicine and massage therapy, I am thrilled to guide you on a transformative journey towards balance and harmony.

As a dedicated practitioner, educator, and visionary in the field, I have had the privilege of sharing my profound knowledge at our exceptional massage therapy school, Alaska Institute of Oriental Medicine, Acupuncture & Massage Therapy since we opened in 2003. There, I have nurtured hundreds of aspiring therapists, instilling in them a deep understanding of the healing arts.

In my private practice, I am privileged to work with individuals seeking a holistic or integrative approach to their well-being. Drawing upon my extensive expertise, I offer a diverse range of modalities designed to restore harmony to mind, body, and spirit. Whether it’s through the powerful techniques of hypnosis, the ancient wisdom of medical qigong energy healing, the enlightening realm of Esogetic Colorpuncture, the rejuvenating touch of reflexology, or the therapeutic power of Chinese medical aromatherapy, each session is tailored to meet the unique needs of my clients.

Furthermore, I am thrilled to share my wisdom with a wider audience through a captivating series of online courses. These courses revolve around the transformative properties of Essential Oils, integrating the principles of the Five Elements and Chakras. Join me in exploring the remarkable potential of aromatic essences as we delve into the profound connections between our physical, emotional, and energetic selves.

As a passionate teacher and a committed professional practitioner, I am deeply fulfilled by the opportunity to contribute to the well-being of others. My unwavering love for my work fuels my dedication to help individuals discover their true potential for vibrant health and inner harmony.

Services Provided:

(Mind) Hypnosis, Mindfulness Coaching

Mindfulness coaching uses a light Alpha-wave brain state and is similar to a guided meditation where you are relaxed and fully aware.

Hypnosis uses a deep Theta-wave brain state that is a more focused trance. Also very relaxing and usually experienced with a pleasant altered awareness. You are always in full control, even in the trance state.

For those wanting to tap into the power of your subconscious mind, hypnosis and mindfulness coaching can be used for almost anything you want. Some examples I’ve worked with:

Chronic pain management, writer’s block, lost items, procrastination, weight release, stop smoking, test anxiety and information recall, initiating the healing response, clearing old emotional baggage, finding life purpose, seeing and feeling energy (Qi), life changes, making decisions, connecting with spirit guides, remembering other lives, and much more.

NOTE: If you are being treated by a doctor for chronic pain or mental health issues please bring a doctor’s note acknowledging that they approve the use of professional hypnosis with your condition.

(Body) Massage Therapy and Bodywork

I have studied many styles of massage therapy and use a fusion style that mainly combines Tuina Acupressure, relaxing Swedish, and therapeutic Sports massage. I work with general health maintenance, injuries and rehab, and minor to major health issues.

During your massage, I may also suggest: Gua Sha, Cupping, Aromatherapy/topical Essential Oils

(Spirit) Medical QiGong Energy Healing, Light-Color-Sound Therapy

I offer both in-person and distant healing sessions. Medical QiGong uses the same meridians, points, and theory as Acupuncture. I do not use needles, however, I do use highly effective methods in place of needles such as Tuning Forks, Singing Bowls, Vocal Toning, Auricular Therapy with Essential Oils, Acupressure and Yin-Tuina, Crystals, Light, and Color.

During your energy healing session, you may listen to special binaural and brain-entrainment music I’ve chosen specifically to complement the healing state. This cutting-edge neuroscience therapy enhances the energetic sensations for both of us.
