Meet 

Andrea

The way I ended up here is not unlike many other holistic healers I know. Faced with my own health challenges in my mid-twenties, I found myself feeling all of the feelings ... hopeless, ashamed, and desperate.  I went off the beaten path in search of relief. I got a recommendation from a friend to see a holistic practitioner who introduced me to all sorts of fun things ... muscle testing, color therapy, head tapping, and ... my symptoms started to lessen. 

And wow! Was that seriously life changing. To know that I could feel better. Up until that point I wasn't sure that was possible. 

Part II to my story is that the symptoms returned. With. a. vengeance. Holy man. Going through that process taught me that I hadn't gotten to the root of the issue. 

 

Then I found BodyTalk. In a seemingly unlikely way, my eyes fixed on a little business card hanging on a bulletin board in a food co-op in rural Wisconsin. And it changed my life. 

BodyTalk is one of the most remarkable and inexplicable modalities I have come across! I saw a BodyTalk practitioner for three years before I got certified, and even after three years of sessions I still couldn't really explain what was happening. But what I did understand is that I experienced calmness after every session. Life seemed to flow with more ease. I felt better.  I felt like I was getting to the root. BodyTalk helped me heal my relationship with my body.

 

Once I made the decision to become a practitioner, I dove in head first. I traveled across the U.S. and into Canada, learning from phenomenal people who I now consider my mentors and friends. 

Emotional Resolution is my newest addition of services that I offer, and man, I cannot begin to explain just how thrilled I am about this modality. I chose to learn Emotional Resolution because of its ability to work with the body to permanently resolve charged emotions. And yes, you did read that right. Permanently. I wasn't looking for another modality to learn, but after I experienced my first Emotional Resolution session, I knew I needed to offer this to my clients. It is truly transformative. 

Both BodyTalk and Emotional Resolution have influenced my current philosophy of healing.  I believe that our beautiful bodies can heal themselves. Not only that, but our bodies continue to support us by communicating with us about what is going on in the subconscious mind and showing us what we're ready to let go of. When we experience a change in the state of our health it provides us an opportunity to get curious and dig deep to discover what it is that we're meant to learn. My focus is no longer solely "make the symptom go away", but it also includes a broader perspective of "why is this symptom here?" and "what am I ready to let go of?" 

BodyTalk and EmRes are both tools that I use to help work at the level of the subconscious to get to the deeper layers of what's going on underneath whatever has gotten your attention and then create opportunity for you to heal - mind, body, and spirit.  

Whether you are looking to address a specific symptom, looking for overall wellness, or looking for a different perspective on healing, there is space for you here. Lovable little ones (from as young as in utero!) and furry family members are also welcome.
