Words from the Owner:

I struggled with constant pain due to my physical activities and my emotional and mental stress. Trauma, stress, and anxiety would get the best of me and create pain in my low back, headaches, and a weak immune system. Dealing with these things was tough, and it became tougher when doctors could not tell me the root problem and told me I will have to live with it. 

As years went on, I grasped my power and took control of my health by diving into Traditional Chinese Medicine, receiving bodywork, and changing my diet. Making these changes changed my life, and my pain disappeared while my self-power multiplied.

After my experiences, I have a strong passion for helping others see the light in themselves because we all deserve a chance to heal truly. I encourage people to not only heal themselves physically, but to understand the root of the pain – that includes mentally and emotionally. Once we begin this kind of healing, we take back our self-power, and we are ready to BE in this world and put good into this world.
