Core Concerns is a holistic health business dedicated to helping clients reap the powerfully therapeutic benefits of healing energy. I offer alternative energy based healing techniques designed to complement and enhance any of your current allopathic health approaches. My focus also is to help those of you who have a desire to naturally maintain or regain your health with minimal use of prescription medications. Or, in certain instances, to temporarily benefit from prescription medications with the intent of their discontinued use.

Each client has different needs. After we meet and discuss your needs, I will be intuitively guided on how to proceed and customize your healing plan. Whether we incorporate massage, essential oils or just pranic healing, I know we can get results. Let me help you achieve health, well-being and harmony.

Why would you want to incorporate Pranic Healing into your health practices? Think of it as maintenance. You give your car a tune-up right? In return, your car runs at optimal performance. Pranic healing emphasizes the cleaning and energizing of all the major (and in some cases minor) chakras, the body's fuel centers. We are all walking around with "dirty" fuel systems. It's just the way life is on the planet. We all suffer from negative emotions, thoughts and circumstances from this life-time or past lifetimes, that contaminate our energetic systems. We all could benefit greatly from a tune-up! It's a known fact that the body intuitively heals itself with the utilization of life-force energy, or prana. However, the time needed to heal can be greatly shortened with the understanding and knowledge of a skilled practitioner.

One other beauty and intelligence of pranic healing is the sincere use of prayer and invocation. I believe we are spiritual beings having a physical experience here on Planet Earth. Most of us have forgotten this. When I work with you during a healing session, I invoke the presence and guidance of all the healing angels, saints, ascended masters and the Supreme Being for your highest good. My work emphasizes the balancing of mind, body and spirit. Personally, I have been on a healing path for most of my life and have been an earnest seeker of true health and harmony and I firmly believe and know that I can facilitate healing for you. This is my gift to you and the planet.

If we understand thought as energy, then we can remove unwanted thoughts, bad energy. Thought forms become embedded in specific chakras. For example, if you have a fear of snakes, it is really just a though form. The thought can be removed and released to source energy to be transmuted to a higher vibration. In a specific Pranic psychotherapy session, the client would not even have to verbalize the unwanted thought form. Just knowing it exists and having a willingness to let it go allows me to remove it from specific chakras, freeing you from that negative energy.


In my practice I understand the benefits of physical touch. Something amazing happens when we receive intelligent compassionate touch. That's why I have studied massage since 1994, when I became a registered massage therapist. Massage is a very effective way to reduce the effects of overall stress. Massage improves circulation, recovery time and boosts immune system function. I have an affinity for Swedish Massage- this technique is an effective tool in the control of pain and in creating a sense of relaxation, repose and well-being. I incorporate body-mobilization techniques, stretching and Shiatsu during all of my treatments.

Ashiatsu is a barefoot massage technique using deep compression effleurage strokes that glide over the body. Gravitational force is combined with centrifugal and centripetal movements. This creates a structural change in chronic soft tissue damage. Bars are used above the head for support and balance. This is a very relaxing, therapeutic treatment. Many of the movements help to elongate the spine. It also helps the body's lymphatic system release toxins at a very high rate. The biggest benefit of Ashiatsu is that after a few treatments it will help improve posture and movement while relieving pain.

I am very experienced in Swedish, Shiatsu, Reflexology, Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy, and stretching techniques.

The elderly hold a special place in my heart and they can really benefit from any form of loving body work. I have been trained in Geriatric Massage which involves Swedish massage with a very gentle touch and all the considerations this segment of the population requires.


Essential oils are truly Natures magical gift. They are the life-blood of plants; anti-microbial and anti-viral. They cleanse, detoxify, oxygenate cells, clear cellular memory and release trapped emotions. They are vehicles of living energy, or wave forms and can manifest either as particles of matter (chemistry) or as waves of energy (physics) or both. Essential oils are very high vibrational substances and were used as medicine and considered more valuable than gold in ancient cultures. I understand them to be vehicles of healing which amplify intent.

I offer the Raindrop Technique®, created by Gary Young, ND. Nine different oils are first applied to the "spinal" reflex points on the feet. The same oils are activated by dropping them on the spine from about 12 inches in the air (hence the feeling of raindrops) then "feathered" up the spine by the therapist using the back of the finger nails.

My healing sessions incorporate the use of essential oils, prayer and our joint understanding and intention to facilitate whatever possible healing for your highest good.


During my healing journey, meditation was an enigma for me. I knew that it was paramount for healing but I did not know how to do it. I researched different meditation practices and found specific techniques that have proven essential to an overall healing process. If you have interest in learning how to meditate effectively, I can teach you what I have learned and experienced. I have been a student and facilitator of the Course of Miracles and base my spiritual psychotherapy practices on its writings. I incorporate the Course's spiritual theories in my sessions.
