My story begins like that of many women. Something, that I couldn’t quite put my finger on, felt off. Doctors and gynecologists alike always had the same response, recommending some form of birth control or not even being interested in my hormone health because I didn’t want to have children. When I came prepared with notes, books and specific questions, they still always seemed to have an easy answer that would get me out of the doctor’s office in 5 minutes or less and always leave me feeling confused and unfulfilled.
Thankfully, I never gave up. Or rather, I only gave up for a few years, but am now coming back with a vengeance.
My initiation started when I was very young. It was 1996 and the world was a different place: non-dairy milk wasn’t on offer at the local cafes yet, the internet was still pretty new and organic produce was only available at co-ops. Still, I felt the pull of “holistic living” and worked at a health food store while going to school for massage therapy. Later, I studied Esthiology as well as Color Therapy, Herbology, Aromatherapy and Ayurveda. I read every book I could get my hands on, but it wasn’t until a dear friend gave me a pale pink book with a red rose on the cover talking about menstrual health that I even considered the possible importance of my cycle.
Over the years, I have witnessed the emergence of a new kind of health care provider – one who looks at the entire being.
I consider myself a part of this movement. Trained as a Holistic Esthetician and Body Worker, my interest in healing led me to become a Yoga Instructor, a Gua Sha & EFT Practitioner and now is leading me to deepen my knowledge of Women’s Health and Hormones.
My mission and passion in life is to educate and empower women. Connecting women back to their cycles, helping to decode symptoms and finding a natural way back to vibrant health.
