Liz has more than 20 years of professional experience practicing a variety of alternative healing modalities including Traditional Chinese Medicine,Therapeutic Massage, Reiki, and Acutonics®/Sound Healing. At the root of her practice is a belief in the body’s innate wisdom and ability to heal itself when reconnected to nature, its season vibrations, and cosmic rhythms. She is passionate about supporting people on their journey back to health and uses her knowledge of the body and its energetic pathways to encourage well being and being well.
To deepen her understanding of Jyotish, 'the science of light' of Vedic Astrology, Liz came to yoga later in life. What she found was the greatest healing gift of her life. For the past 20 years yoga has been a powerful tool helping her to heal both mind and body from chronic pain and severe asthma. She has an eclectic background influenced by many teachers including Auryel Van Gemert, Jodi Boone, Katerina Wen, MJ Daniels, Rosalie Battah, and Marjorie DeMunyck, all with a common Bhakti, or devotional style.
During the past year Liz has combined her love of yoga and sound healing by offering Restorative Sound Baths. Her sound baths subtly weave the pure tones of crystal singing bowls with the organic tones of Tibetan bowls, chimes, and Hapi drum. The crystal bowls are made from crushed quartz, similar to that used in digital technologies as vibrational transmitters. The crystals emit a true one that resonates deeply with our bodies because our bones, cells, and DNA are made of similar crystalline structure. The specific tones of the crystal bowls also impact the body in specific ways. Hers are tuned to 432 hertz which is a harmonic of the mystical Vedic number 108 representing energy signatures found in nature. These frequencies create harmonic wave patterns in the form of sacred geometry and have a profound affect on our brain waves encouraging deep meditative and healing states.
