Sometimes what looks like a tragedy is a blessing in disguise. In 2012, Sheila experienced excruciating, unrelenting pain as a result of a herniated disc in her spine, resulting in a diagnosis of spinal stenosis. Unable to walk independently, sit in a chair, or sleep in a bed, sheer desperation drove her to seek an unconventional remedy. After two weeks of Functional Integration sessions, Sheila walked upright without a cane or walker. What had seemed like magic was the result of the careful, guided movements initiated by her Feldenkrais practitioner.

Sheila decided right then to learn the technique and to share her healing experience with as many pain-stricken persons as possible. Sheila is now a Certified Feldenkrais Methods Practitioner.

Later, Sheila turned another difficult situation into blessing when she received a second degree burn on her leg as the result of a spilled cup of scalding water. Western medicine provided minimal relief from the pain, slow healing, and scarring that appeared permanent. But a casual conversation with a dear friend and fellow student led Sheila to apply doTerra Essential Oils to the burn site. She felt immediate relief and today, a faded “sunburn” is all that remains. Sheila immediately sought and received training in the field of essential oils and is now a Certified AromaTouch therapist with a vast knowledge of the healing properties of these oils.

The Feldenkrais Method initiates, coordinates, and stabilizes your nervous system by using your mind and body connection. This method is delivered through two formats: a group approach (Awareness Through Movement) and private, individualized sessions (Functional Integration). Both approaches provide relief from pain, stress, and anxiety.

AromaTouch Therapy is a technique designed to apply essential oils while enabling the recipient to relax and maximize the healing nature of essential oil. Essential oils are the naturally occurring, volatile aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. These organic compounds tend to change states (from solid or liquid state to a gas at room temperature) quickly, which means they are easily detected by the olfactory sensors in your nose. Such properties make essential oils ideal for aromatherapy–using compounds from plants to help maintain a healthy mind and body, and overall wellness.
