UNLEASH the Power of Integrative Medicine for Improved Patient Care
– a Healthcare Professionals Guide –



My free gift to you!

As a registered nurse and a woman who experienced chronic pain and stress (my story will help you understand more my passion and purpose), I know focusing on just the physical body and taking medications is not enough to heal someone.  My desire is to teach you therapies/techniques that work with the Whole Person – body, mind and spirit.  This facilitates healing, alleviates physical and emotional pain, improves your patients’ health and quality of life as well as Your Own!   By integrating holistic therapies into traditional western medicine everyone benefits. 

I have been an RN for over 35 years.  Multiple demands on our time can cause patients to feel like a number rather than a person.  Taking just a few minutes of focused time to do a technique that eases pain or anxiety helps them feel nurtured, cared for and promotes healing on many levels.  Holistic therapies work well in acute settings, skilled nursing facilities, home health, clinic and hospice settings.  They are wonderful and effective to use on family and friends as well!

The therapies I utilize in my private practice are Healing Touch, Aromatherapy (essential oils), Guided Imagery and meditation.  These powerful therapies can be used individually or combined in a healing session.

Patient Benefits:

  • Reduces pain
  • Reduces anxiety, stress and tension
  • Lessens fatigue
  • Improves immune function
  • Reduces length of stay
  • Facilitates wound healing
  • Assists in management of side effects from medical treatments such as chemotherapy.
  • Assists in the preparation for and recovery from surgeries and medical procedures
  • Supports individuals and families through chronic illness
  • Supports individuals and families through the dying process
  • Promotes health and well-being
  • Enhances spiritual connection

These benefits are supported by quantitative and qualitative research as well as my personal experiences and my colleagues.

Guess what?  Most of the techniques/therapies can be used on yourself as well to promote your health and well-being!!  Health care professionals and caregivers need to take care of themselves so they can take better care of others.  I had a stress pattern for 15 years and healing touch finally taught me how to break it and new ways of managing it.
