In my late 20's, I learned so much working alongside a wonderful family practitioner, who used many disciplines to help each patient achieve their highest health, and balanced life.  Dr. Peter Kfoury, of Lexington, MA educated every patient, their family, and his staff who were invited to attend professional level courses to expand our personal, and professional, growth.  Those who are educated in viable options, feel self-empowered to make wise choices along their wellness journey. Following his lead for 6 years, I learned to read the Materia Medica of Homeopathics, became an Advanced Total Body Modification Practitioner (with Dr Victor Frank's T.B.M.), a Usui Reiki Master, the application of Neuro-Linguistic Programming and Emotional Freedom Technique (now popular as Tapping Solution with Nick Ortner) and learned to infuse receptivity to life force miracles, when using healing touch to ignite the body's innate healing wisdoms. 

My daughter Kerry and I, felt Blessed to have Dr. Peter Kfoury, Dr Victor Frank and  Dr Jennifer Lamonica as our close wellness advisors, and general practice doctors, to avoid usual childhood illnesses.  As Kerry turned 5, Dr. Kfoury relocated to South Carolina, and we moved to the Greater Newburyport area.  So in 1987, I opened the doors to my own integrative wellness practice, I called "True Essence Healing", which is actively evolving in this quickly shifting  21st Century, to meet the needs of clients and students alike.  While in private practice, I went on to become a Board Certified Polarity Practitioner, RYSE Practitioner~Educator, Advanced T.B.M Functional Kinesiologist, and one of 12 Charter Instructor for Dr. Frank's Environmental Stress Management Course....I also, earned C
ertifications in Cranio-Sacral Therapy from both the Upledger Institute and Dr. Franklyn Stills of England (author of The Polarity Process).

My passion to know the vibrations of life and healing from the late 80's to late 90's, found me studyng everything to expand my skill set, and Awareness  ... Luckily many Masters came to the Boston area at that time, and I become Certified in many such as Light, Color, Stones & Crystals with 
Joy Gardener (author of Vibrational Medicine), in depth studies of the Human Energy System with Nancy Risley, and Anodea Judith.  Also, "Yuen Energetics" with founder Dr. Kam Yuen, and Hew Len's Ho' Oponopono, and Huna Healing with Laurie Grant from Hawaii, I learned to apply the wisdom of Louise Hay's Body/Mind/Spirit Relationships,  Dr. Bernie Siegel's Creative Visualizations (author of "Love, Medicine and Miracles"), the principles of Helen Shucman's Course in Miracles, and the practical use of Charles & Myrtle Filmore's "Unity School of Christianity".  I had so much fun delving into Dr. Alan Wolfe's Quantum Physics, and Dr. Masaru Emoto's Water Experiment (shown on NYC subway billboards back then), experimenting with the effects of Prayer, Hidden Codes and Rituals on our cells with Gregg Braden, Sacred Geometry in All Life, and our multi-dimensional systmes with Drunvelo Melchezidek, and how to manifest our reality with Abraham, and Kryon.  Many big names came to Boston annually those days, to inspire our passion to think outside the box in the late 20th century.  

Then in 1994, I found Mysticism, and became a Contemplative Mystic under the tutelage of Jerry Thomas, PhD of Stillpoint Retreats (still love attending to this day), learning the art Contemplative Meditation, Practicing the Presence, and infusing the Feminine Paradigm in this Big Shift we continuously feel these days.  We learned to use the power of Sanskrit Chants, Mantras & Yantras while studying Yogananda,  Anandamayi Ma, Patanjali, Amma, Saint Francis, Padre Pio, and many other Mystics from East and West. I love to assist others along the Path, to bring increased Inner Stillness for increased Peace, Wisdom and and a stable foundation to raise yourself up during precariously changing times in our outer daily lives as householders vs monastics.   

Throughout my years in using integrative energy based bodywork and medicine, I have received Certifications in Acutonics Sound Therapy with Susan Stone, Flower Essences with Master Practitioner David Dalton (of Delta Gardens), and Flower Essence Society of CA, I am a Young Living Oil Distributor, and offer both forms of custom blend frequency medicines. Recently, I have enjoyed using Destiny Cards to help others understand an overview of their personal nature, and soul essence.  

Over the years, I have mentored both allopathic, and complementary, doctors wanting to add Functional Kinesiology to their medical practices.  For my bodywork colleagues, I offer a 5 hour "Intro to Points for Life" workshop, and for those ready to implement more advanced techniques, offer a full 16 hour Certification Course. I continue to love personally mentoring each student in honing their skills and learning to have FUN integrating these great tools for healing. All offer APTA approved CEU's. 

May you all find your own precious moments of passion as you learn to nurture the root of all life. 
When chosen to assist, I AM Honored & Feel Blessed ~ Namaste ~ Sheila
