There is more to the body than just the physical part you can see and touch; an energetic and spiritual part is present and just as vital. The soul, spirit, or essence is at the “center” or, at least, that is where it should be. Over time, our environment can disrupt the flow state of one or all of these components of the body which can cause symptoms. These disruptions are like wounds that can be carried around for any amount of time--since in the womb, 15 years ago, 10 days ago or 5 minutes ago. Just like every person is unique, so are the symptoms. These symptoms can include sneezing, coughing, shortness of breath, heartburn, diarrhea, constipation, vomiting, nausea, headaches, migraines, rashes, hives, swelling, pain, anxiety and depression, to name a few. One person may experience pain and rashes while another person has shortness of breath and constipation or any number of combinations. Each individual and their particular symptoms are treated according to the their individual needs. Sessions are completed using a number of tools (one example is muscle testing) that have been collected over the last 2 decades. Most of the tools used are working with the energetic body as well as coaching and education as needed. By reading the body in it's current state and helping the individual to heal the wounds, the body returns to its' more natural state, thereby reducing the symptoms experienced by the client. Thus, by doing so, the essence of self is more centered.

Although there is a limited online schedule for clients to book themselves, the practitioner can add clients onto the schedule as well, outside of the availability listed. Please call 541-241-8782 if you have any questions.
What should I expect during a session?
All sessions are done via phone. The practitioner will call you at your scheduled appointment time. You will be asked to sit or lay down in a private, quiet location, and place the phone down in front of you on speaker (so that you are not touching it, if possible). Please refrain from eating and drinking during the appointment. Starting out with an Initial Session, it is approximately a 50 minute phone consultation that covers the basics from how you came to be in the current state that you are in to your goals and desired outcome as well as body balancing work. The practitioner will work to help release the areas of wounding. Although every person is unique, some clients describe the sensations in their body during a session similarly. Some clients have described their experiences like the following: “...it's like a subtle flashlight being briefly placed on an area of my body (brain, spine, abdomen, etc...)", "it's warm, tingly"..."but it's not about the sensations so much as it is about the end result; I am less reactive to the environment and have less symptoms."... "I am more free to just be me." After your Initial Session, it is usually recommended that you have a follow-up visit within a week. During this 15 minute phone consult, there is an intake of how your symptoms have changed, how you are responding to the last session, and more wound release. This time slot can also be used as an Initial Session if it is for a child age 3 years or under. Most clients notice positive results within an average of 3-5 visits, however, more sessions may be necessary depending on your unique system.
