New beginnings

Posted Posted in Bodywork

After surviving a near fatal kite surf accident at the beginning of this year, the universe provided me with more opportunities to grow. I am excited to announce that I now have my own office space at the Rainbow Mall in Kihei – 2439 South Kihei Road, Suite 205b. My new place is very quiet and charming and has great energy and natural light. I also will start a new education in “Alchemical Hypnosis”. Hypnotherapy is an effective tool to access the deepest source of healing. Focused guided imagery is used to build self-control over physical and emotional problems. Through a dialogue with the body and its emotions a powerful process of transformation can occur and underlying trauma, unhealthy core beliefs and suppressed memories can be cleared and healed. I am looking forward to learn to address chronic health issues from a completely new angle. With Alchemical Hypnosis and Medical Intuition I will be able to help my client to get to the bottom of their challenges and give them powerful resources and tools to access their own healing power […]

About Surfing, Concussions and Head injuries

Posted Posted in Bodywork, Holisitc Health

A couple days ago, big wave surfer Paige Alms was talking about concussions and brain injuries on the waterpeople podcast 1. She inspired me to share my knowledge and to introduce some effective treatment options for injuries to the brain, head and neck. My research led to many stories about big wave surfers struggling to recover from serious concussions and traumatic brain injuries (TBI). Mercedes Maidana got hit by her board in the forehead, Shawn Dollar broke his neck on a boulder under water, Jeremy Flores hit the reef, 15-year-old Harley Taich was smashed onto hard-packed sand and Owen Wright barely survived a wipeout at pipeline with a brain bleed and a concussion. The list could go on and on; for most of the injured surfers the healing process is very challenging and takes month if not years. You do not need to be a pro-surfer riding the biggest waves out there in order to get serious traumatic impacts to your head, neck or chest. All surfers are risk-taking athletes and often get hurt in the process of expanding their […]

Mindfulness and Depression

Posted Posted in Intuitive Insights

“The more and more you listen, the more and more you hear; the more and more you hear, the deeper and deeper your understanding becomes.” Dilgo Khyenste Rinopoche, The Tibetan book of Living and Dying by Sogyal Rinpoche Mindfulness is a way of life. It is about listening and paying attention to the present moment. Mindfulness helps you to take a breath before you fall into a reactive pattern, judgment or negativity. Mindfulness allows you to create new experiences and make better choices. I could not imagine a life without mindfulness. 5 Minutes of daily practice is already enough to start building a healthier relationship with yourself. 5 minutes of exploring and understanding your feelings, your fears and needs. 5 minutes a day of discovering who you are if you listen to yourself and not to others. 5 minutes for spiritual growth and development. A few minutes of Compassion and Gratitude can shift your life. Yoon Im Kane, an psychotherapist from NY/Maui – just came out with a her new book “The Mindfulness Workbook for Depression”. She does a beautiful […]

New Directions with Covid 19

Posted Posted in Intuitive Insights

“In the midst of every crisis lies great opportunity.” Albert Einstein The recent pandemic changed our daily routines and gave most of us the chance to reflect on our lives, our relationships, and how we spend our time. Social distancing forced us to reach out to friends, neighbors and clients in different ways and thanks to improved technology we can easily stay in touch with each other over far distances. The social limitations within the covid crisis opened new doors and allowed my practice to grow in a new direction. My clients asked me to provide phone consultations and remote healing session. Which turned out to be a very fascinating and efficient healing tool. In my Medical Intuition and Energy Healing training, I learned to reach out to people on an energetic level. We can use universal energies and our intuition to connect and to facilitate healing without any physical contact. Intuitive insights allow us to look at our lives from a different perspective and help us to understand our physical challenges and emotional struggles. Healing on the energetic level addresses our spiritual […]

New office in Kihei

Posted Posted in Bodywork

I am seeing clients at Kihei Physical Therapy and accept Workers Comp and MVA. The quality of connective tissue decreases in response to traumatic experiences. In my training I have learned that most musculoskeletal problems have a visceral connection. Injuries, traumas or emotional stress can cause irritation within the organs.  Any restriction, fixation or adhesion of an organ to another structure, no matter how small, implies functional impairment of this organ and can be felt anywhere in the body. Especially patients with chronic symptoms may benefit from the approach of not just focusing on the area of discomfort in order to encourage pain relief. For example, upper lumbar pain or sciatica may be related to the intestines or limited shoulder or neck mobility may have a connection to the liver or gallbladder.  With skilled palpation and gentle visceral techniques the fascial structures of restricted organs can be released and their function improved. Craniosacral Osteopathy is a gentle form of touch designed to enhance the functioning of the membranes, tissues, fluids and bones associated with the central nervous system. It has proven […]

Strolling under the skin

Posted Posted in Bodywork

Dr. Andrew Taylor Still, the founder of Osteopathy, mentioned the importance of fascia in his early writings. Fascia, also known as Connective Tissue, is a continuous network of fibers that extends through out our whole body and fills all the space there is. These fibers are short or long, branch off in all directions and seem completely disorganized. They may are woven close together or run far apart, are loose or packed tight together. But this network of fibers is by far more than just filling material or padding. Fascia surrounds and connects anatomical structures like muscles, arteries, veins, nerves, organs etc. and does its best to adapt to accidents, surgeries, traumas, bad habits or our sedentary lifestyle. The understanding of fascia/connective tissue is necessary in order to comprehend the dynamic balance of the human body. Jean- Claude Guimberteau, an MD and Plastic/Reconstructive Surgeon, used video endoscopy to investigate fascia in the living body. In his video – Strolling under the Skin – he allows us an impressive insight into the importance of connective tissue.Dive into a different world and […]
