All of my skills and tools are deeply grounded in decades of personal research and many are peer reviewed and evidence based. I am open to almost anything that will help my clients with chronic sensitivities, some of my most successful modalities are some of the least conservative and the most effective; if they don't work, I don't use them.
Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS) Consulting. There is a great deal of debate in the medical community on whether MCS is physiological or psychological. I am here to say both as we are one being, and one affects the other. What I do is to help people track down their triggers, find substitutions for triggers and be the detective that the medical community just do not have time to be. I am a patient helper during a time of confusion, a detective and a source of information. I do provide resources as well. I listen to your story, then together we come up with a treatment plan, I can work with your physician or naturopath, to find the best path for your safe healing. I have researched options and am ready to share them with you. Below you can see just some of the techniques we can use together to find your safe haven.
Well being can be skin deep. I do facials, body wraps, and safe beauty care using products that do not contain harmful chemicals, I also make herbal preparations for people with multiple chemical sensitivities, I even distill the hydrosols myself for beauty care. My job is to help you be beautiful and safe at the same time. I use LimeLife by Alcone skincare products and I am a licensed Cosmetologist in the state of Iowa.
Connecting with our health can be as simple as learning about our local plant allies. I take clients on herbal walks to empower each of them to take care of their own health and reconnect with the healing power of nature. I also offer classes for people who want to know more about these powerful allies for optimal health. I am a Master Herbalist, I also offer professional herbalist trainings online and in person.
Sometimes the perfect remedy can be elusive so I create and blend remedies for you from wildcrafted herbs which I make for my clients. I make and teach how to make tinctures, tisanes, salves, distillates (hydrosols and essential oils) and massage oils.
Intention is a powerful tool. I use this ancient tool for empowering clients to heal themselves. The history of poppet usage goes back to the bronze age. I hand make poppets for people to remind them of their own beauty and innate ability to participate in their own healing. Its very empowering for a client to see the embodiment of their own essence and reclaim their power.
When we have trauma it affects our entire being; our bodies, minds and souls. Energy work has been proven through peer reviewed studies to accelerate and facilitate healing. Reiki Healing, Wei Chi System of Natural and Botanical Healing, Transformational Breathwork and Spiritual Healing combine in a unique energy work system to help release energies that are "stuck" in the body oftentimes exacerbating symptoms of chemical sensitivities. I wrote my Master's thesis on this fascinating subject and found new insights I share with my clients.
Tarot is one of the oldest tools used to connect a person with their unconscious power to heal themselves. Carl Jung used tarot with his patients to unlock places deep in the unconscious where there was stress, frustration and feelings of powerlessness. I have found them to be extremely helpful in revealing underlying issues that can block progress to health. I have been reading tarot since the 1990's.
