“I am a healer, a certified Massage therapist, and a certified Hypnotherapist, whose passion has been dedicated to helping my clients experience greater serenity, health, vitality and inner freedom. For 27 years, I have helped my clients clear stress, transform negative belief patterns, eliminate pain, and help with health challenges by providing alternative healing approaches and therapies. My aim is to help your body and mind to regain its normal healthy state. In this way many health challenges resolve naturally. I work with some of the most effective natural therapies and energetic devices to help you.
I started my self-healing journey, practicing meditation in high school. After a near death drowning experience while rafting on the Stanislaus River in California when I was 21, I experienced the pure consciousness of God. Since 1970, I continue to strive to maintain a meditative and service filled life. My inner resolve to help others help themselves was heightened when my younger brother, Steve, succumbed to melanoma.
I have been meditating and doing yoga practice daily since 1971. I received training in massage therapy and healing from 1981- 1983 with Dr. John Collins N.D. in Oregon. When I moved to Denver, Colorado in 1984, I set up a massage practice. Recently, as of December 2009, my wife and I moved to Santa Rosa, California, where I now practice.
I decided to explore hypnosis to help clients free themselves from the emotional cause behind pain and suffering. I graduated from the Alchemy Institute in Hypnotherapy in Denver, Colorado in 1994.
Over the last 12 years,I have been a student of Zhu Xilin, an amazing Chinese Tai Chi and Qigong master. He has revealed many amazing secret practices and insights to reversing aging and clearing pain. Through this knowledge, I have developed a practice of Yoga-Qigong approach that combines both of these amazing systems.
The sessions are client centered. My deep understanding of working with clients comes to me as a natural extension of my 25 years of experience and as massage therapist and healer. Additionally, I draw upon acupuncture training from Dr. Eric Tao in 1986 to help me understand how to help you. My practice does not utilize acupuncture needles because I have found other non -invasive procedures as effective. My clients enjoy healing and relaxing effects of the different therapeutic machines (developed by doctors and healers) that can be used with your session. Thank you.
