How a fall off of a balance beam lead me to holistic healing.
I am often asked why I went from medical model nursing to holistic nursing. The answer is both personal and professional.
In the spring of my freshman year of college I sustained a traumatic head injury during a gymnastic workout. By my junior year, I could no longer focus with my eyes, headaches were daily and debilitating, my arms would go numb and I knew something was seriously wrong. I left college and began meeting with doctors who told her me it was "all in my head." Finally a top neurosurgeon in Boston admitted me to the hospital for barbaric medical tests! His conclusion:
"There is no cure. You will have pain for life and be on medications forever."
And that was the case through nursing school and for more years that I care to count. Daily pain exhausted me and brought me to my knees on many occasions.
When I was 34 years old, my aunt , Sonja, called and asked me to go to California with her to study kinesiology. I met with Lillian Poston, a kinesiology facilitator, to experience the work and my life changed forever on that day
Bells and whistles went off. I knew that this modality would not only change my life, but would also change the lives of others. It made sense to access Body Wisdom for guidance. My body began to heal, the head pain lessened and life changed for the better.
It has been 30 years since I flew to California and began my life changing quest. I continue to love supporting and watching people change, grow and reach their full potential with muscle testing, flower essences, face reading, workshops, mentoring and more!
