Although I love plant medicine for its amazing powerful healing benefits and insights, my calling was to study the medicine of a tree frog, Kambo. From the first moment the medicine was applied to my body, I knew it with my whole being that this was something I had to dive deep into. Through self application, teachings of my knowledgeable teacher, books and research I have learned a variety of protocols that many clients can benefit from, depending on their unique physical and spiritual needs. The more I studied and understood the powerful bioactive peptides the more I was impressed by the magic of this jungle medicine that nature has to offer us. I continuously invest time in studying Kambo and learning the new ways of applying it for the maximum benefit of the person sitting across from me. My approach to Kambo is gentle, allow the medicine to guide me and the client through what is necessary, sometimes less is more.
Breathwork came to me a bit later on in life when I attended one of the breathwork sessions and was blown away how truly amazing our bodies are and that we really do have EVERYTHING we need within us. The power of breath, breathing in and out is like a natural currant of life- giving and receiving. Breathwork can be used to bring your awareness to certain parts of your life and give you clarity, it can calm you and excite you, it can switch you from sympathetic (fight or flight) to parasympathetic system (rest and digest). I use a combination of different breathwork patterns/techniques to give you the best and needed experience. Whether you are looking to manage your anxiety, get clarity or simply bring yourself back to the awareness of breath – breathwork can take you there.
