Who is this doctor, and why is she doing Healing Touch?
I am a Healing Touch Certified Practitioner/Instructor, and Qualified Mentor for Healing Touch Practitioner Apprentices. I also teach Introductory, Self-Care and Level 1 Classes and lead a local Healing Touch Practice Group.
My other hat is as a board-certified holistic family physician who worked in family medicine group office practices for 28 years, then did 3+ years of a solo house call family practice before retiring from active family medical practice at the end of 2011. I still maintain my MD license.
My interest in holistic, integrative medicine began about 18 years ago, when my daughter became a Holistic Healer and I sought to gain further understanding of this approach to health care. The focus on understanding the whole person and facilitating his or her self-healing on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels fit with the way I had always approached the practice of family medicine.
In mid-2010, a dear friend, Dorothea Hover-Kramer, asked me to read & write a review of a new book she was writing for the public about Healing Touch. Doing so, I was fascinated and felt compelled to learn more about energy medicine.
Thereafter, I completed Levels 1-6 of Healing Touch training and additional requirements to become a Healing Touch Certified Practitioner and Certified Instructor. In January 2018, I became a Qualified Mentor, as well. I have received additional training in Back Chakra Activation, Advanced Chakra Diagnosis & Treatment, Master Hara work, Energy Anatomy techniques and Crystal Healing. In Nov. 2019, was privileged to study sound healing using Himalayan singing bowls, so now also offer Chakra Balancing sessions using these amazing bowls.
The years since I began energy healing have been a time of immense growth both personally and as a healer. I find this work joyously fulfilling – beneficial to my clients and to myself in being ‘healed, whole and healthy’.
