We want you to achieve this harmony using the healing power of natural therapies to transform your life.
I discovered alternative medicine after an amazing experience with my first child who had terrible eczema from only 4 weeks old and who suffered multiple food allergies: Nuts, Wheat, Gluten, DairyProducts and Seafood.

I have since 1982 dedicated my life to the study and practice of healing in the biggest sense of the word. This journey has lead me to explore macrobiotics, shiatsu, nine ki, feng shui and morerecently esoteric healing. Along that path I have taken diversions to explore NLP, EFT, wabi sabi and various forms of Chinese medicine. I have enjoyed many forms of Taoist and Buddhist practice.
