My Why?

“I left Tobago when I was 6 1/2yrs old. I remember getting off the plane and feeling my doll becoming cold in my hands. In grade three I was drilled about my accent, which until then I didn’t know I had. I was sent to special classes where there were other kids with accents to learn to speak like a Canadian.

By grade 6 I had endured years of ridicule by kids asking questions about my hair texture, skin colour, and where I came from. I don’t know when it happened but it did, the criticism started to affect my self-esteem.

My health issues started at the onset of my period, which magnified my lack of self-confidence. My doctors experimented with different treatments and medications that were temporary fixes at best but with no actual solutions.

For many years I lived in a permanent health crisis, which cost me jobs, friendships, and relationships. I had what I called a half-life.

Eventually I found my breakthroughs with alternative treatments, which I coupled with medical monitoring.

Many of us go through difficult hardships and challenges within society. My goal is no matter the circumstances that you are faced with I want to help you get the opportunity to live your life fully.

I believe love, affection and recognizing your value of existing on the planet is vital to transforming the quality of your health.”

“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.”
– Book: Heart of a Buddha

My Phylosophy

To inspire and educate individuals to rejuvenate their bodies, enrich their minds, and nourish their souls.

We are in a constant state of change as we strive for equilibrium to fight stress that affect our well-being everyday. These stressors affect our body, organs, skin and emotions. Bringing our bodies and emotions back into balance is the purpose of achieving optimal health.

Over the last 15 years I have treated a multiple assortment of ailments such as asthma, hip & knee replacements, broken wrists, fingers and knee injuries. In the more recent years I’ve dealt with various cancer’s, strokes, MS, and Erb’s palsy (paralysis), all of which clients have had very positive results with each particular treatment course of action taken.

I promote the importance of balance and well-being, through various modalities of treatments and feel privileged to bring this gift of healing to you.

I’ve learned that the most important step in anyone’s healing is their belief and acceptance of a possible solution. Improved health, commitment, positive perceptions and expectations empower individuals to make healthy lifestyle choices and allow them the freedom to be.

“Energy, vitality and laughter surround my whole life. To be indispensable means to be absolutely necessary or essential. I believe our health is the one absolutely indispensable aspect of our being alive—without it nothing else is possible. We are unable to work, to play, to be with our families and friends—we are unable to truly enjoy our being alive.”

Cheers to a beautiful you!
Namaste
