ABOUT ME

I graduated from the University of Zuerich in Switzerland with a Master’s Degree in Biology in 1997. While living and working on a dairy farm I discovered the healing powers of Classical Homeopathy and enrolled in a three year program at the “Akademie der homoeopathischen Heilkunst” in Switzerland. The fascination for Homeopathy kept growing and I became soon one of the main teachers at this school. After experiencing the effectiveness of light but knowledgeable touch I found my real calling and successfully completed a three year advanced training in Craniosacral Osteopathy in Zuerich from where I graduated in 2003.

I was running a full time private practice for over 10 years in Zug, Switzerland, and supported more than 800 patients of all ages in their healing process. As a holistic healthcare professional I have been able to successfully treat a wide variety of health problems as well as physical and emotional challenges.

 

In 2010 I moved to Hawaii to start a new chapter in my life. I danced hula with Na Hanona Kulike o Pi’ilani and I studied the Hawaiian Language which helps me to understand and appreciate the Polynesian Culture. I gave myself the time to discover my creativity as a ceramic artist and to deepen my intuitive skills and perception with an education in Intuitive Energy Medicine. This training enhanced my personal growth and gave me a deeper awareness of the complex energetic relationship between spirit, mind and body. I graduated from the Maui School of Therapeutic Massage in Makawao in October 2015 and can now offer my therapeutic skills, which are based on over 4700 hours of education in complementary and alternative medicine, in the United States. I am a current student at the Barral Institute to deepen my knowledge in Visceral, Neural and Vascular Manipulations. In June 2021 I am starting a new education in Alchemical Hypnosis. Hypnotherapy uses focused guided imagery to build self-control over physical and emotional problems. It is a promising approach to get to the bottom of your health issues – it allows to address underlying trauma, unhealthy core beliefs and suppressed memories.

I am passionately curious and love to learn, listen and look at life from a different perspectives. I recently discovered that horses respond even better to Craniosacral Osteopathy than humans. At the moment I am learning to transfer my skills to the anatomy and physiology of the horse and am excited to investigate the power of gentle touch in a new direction. I recognize a beautiful possibilty to support the relationship between rider and horse and to contribute to a fulfilling relationship between the two.

Liniger Barbara Resume

PLEASE READ WHAT MY PATIENTS ARE EXPERIENCING

“Barbara is an extremely knowledgeable and talented therapist. She really takes the time to listen to your concerns and is able to integrate that with what the tissues of the body are telling her. Her skills are excellent.”

Amy, Maui

“Barbara Liniger is a gem – brilliant at what she does. I highly recommend her for those tough injuries that others can’t get to the root of. She looks at you as a whole person and provides extremely individualized attention. I was so impressed by how effective her treatment was and by her breadth of knowledge. She has the skill of identifying seemingly disconnected problem areas and working with them, so my entire system can work better together. She’s also the loveliest person to get to know. Over the years, we’ve developed a repertoire I really enjoy, and I am always learning new things from her! Barbara Liniger is next-level healing! I highly recommend her!” 

Nicole, Maui

“Barbara is an amazing healer. I first met her during our family vacation on Maui and I saw her twice in person. It was always an outstanding experience and it left me feel great. Last spring I started remote sessions with Barbara and I was in awe of her skill. She is highly intuitive and she was able to help me tap into deep issues that needed to be addressed in my healing process. I highly recommend Barbara, even if you are experiencing health issues that no one before was able to help you with. Barbara is not only highly skilled in what she does but also very professional.”

Aga, Seattle

“ Just a few words to describe Barbara are, Authentic, Gifted & Integrity…. She has a unique way of sharing her grounded energy with you. I felt safe and cared for and her hands hold wisdom that was able to help move some stagnate energy out of me that lasted hours after our session. She is a Beam of Light.”

Brenda, Maui

“The hour I spent on Barbara’s treatment table took my relief to an entirely different level. She was able to diagnose a number of internal issues and describe them to me and begin dealing with them. The improvement in the range of motion of my neck has been amazing. There has also been noticeable improvement in daily early-morning sacral discomfort. Needless to say, I’m looking forward to return trips to Maui for future sessions with Barbara Liniger. I highly recommend her services.”

Bob, Pleasant Hill

“After my first visit with Barbara my life changed completely. I found a new job that is in alignment with my spirit. My relationship with my husband has taken a miraculous turn around for the better. I successfully won a long, long, long legal case. My ability to respond instead of react has improved exponentially. I can not thank her enough for her powerful healing abilities.” 

Dennae, Kihei

 “ I had a car accident a few months ago, I was experiencing headaches and other pains in my body and I saw Barbara twice before the Covid-19 social distancing started. A few weeks into being at home, I started to feel the same pain and tension so I reached out to Barbra to ask if she could do a remote session. She was very humble about whether it would work and I was willing (and desperate for some relief) so I tried it and it worked! I immediately felt a shift in the pressure in my face, neck and head. I’d highly recommend doing a remote session with Barbra. It helped me so much.” Marsha, Kula

Marsha, Kula

“Once you’re in Barbara’s hands you can lie back, relax and heal! A treatment from this experienced, gifted, healer puts you back on track to health and well-being. Her knowledge of how the body works and heals itself is impressive. Her touch is light but packs a powerful punch. She has treated my entire family, including my kids for many years and I highly recommend her.”

Rukhsanna, Maui

“I went to Barbara for an issue I’d been putting up with for far too long! Her ability to both read my body and empathize as to how that was mentally affecting me, was impressive. I felt safe, seen and treated with (not only) her wealth of knowledge , but compassion the left me wishing I’d seen her month before. Her confidence and kindness are a magical combination, I can’t recommend her highly enough.”

Sharon, Maui

“Being accustomed to deep tissue body work I was frankly dubious that a serious neuro-muscular issue that had sidelined me could be addressed with cranio-sacral work. Barbara erased that doubt and the pain, in one session.”

Antonio, Maui

“Few body workers combine the depth of anatomical knowledge and high degree of intuition and sensitivity that Barbara demonstrates in her work. I went to Barbara for help with two distinct problems: neck pain, and digestive problems. In both cases a single session made imitate and dramatic improvement.”

Martyna, Maui

“I have had the pleasure of working with Barbara for the last six years, as my homeopath and when I needed Craniosacral treatments. Not only did she treat and heal my lifelong sinus issues, but she’s also assisted me during numerous illnesses over the years and help build my immune system. When I’ve had bouts of insomnia, a treatment with Barbara has always been so helpful. When I’ve had injuries, her treatments have released the pain and helped return my mobility. When my husband had his hip replaced five years ago, Barbara helped him to recover much more quickly than he would have without her. She has an intuitive healing touch, unlike any other therapist I have worked with. She has worked with both of my children, as well, when they have needed treatments. She is wonderful with kids. I have had cranio work from other therapists, but no one comes close to her ability and treatment. She truly cares about her clients and her knowledgeable and insightful therapies are world class. Not only is she an amazing healer, but she is a sensitive and caring individual with a big heart. I have been blessed to have met her when she first arrived on island!”

Carla, Maui

“Barbara Liniger is an exceptional healer, the combination of natural gift and deep knowledge. She unexpectedly rid me of my fear of deep blue water which I had acquired at a young age and never able to shake. That was a revelation of her healing energy. I now visit her at least once during every trip to Maui, whether for overcoming jet lag, to ease joint pain, or simply to be at my best. I trust her talent and highly recommend her.”

Franklin, Geneva

“Barbara brings great intuition backed by years of clinical experience into her work. She has the ability, knowledge and skill to meet each person right where they need to be met. Barbara has a sense of calm about her which allows you to trust her in helping you on your healing path. Thank you, Barbara for enriching my life.”

Teresa, San Francisco
