Fine tuning the hand placement

Core Synchronism practitioners undergo a training system based on 6 levels of classes, each providing an extremely powerful set of tools. If a practitioner completes all 6 levels, the Certified Core Synchronism Practitioner (CCSP) certification is awarded. Descriptions of what is taught at each level can be found on the Upcoming page or in greater detail in Robert Stevens’ essay, The Soul of Hand Medicine

Whether you are looking for help with a particular complaint, or are curious or would just like to feel better, consult the list below to find a practitioner near you. Training is offered several times a year, so if you don’t see anyone in your area check again later or contact us.

The body has an amazing ability to heal itself when it is allowed to rest and as your practitioner and teacher of holistic health, we will look to the cause of the imbalance and not just treat your symptoms.

My own healing started in 2001 practicing and teaching Tantric Hatha Yoga. From yoga I was lead to studying Ayurveda and graduated from The Ayurvedic Institute level 1 in 2008.

I love sharing relaxation and healing with people and watching the transformation that happens in that Neutral space. I am currently offering sessions in Lamy/Eldorado, Santa Fe and Albuquerque NM.

Welcome to the experience of meeting yourself. As balance between structures and the emotional, mental and energetic fields of the patient is achieved, the possibilities for ever deepening levels of connection within the self expand and open, and a settling into oneself happens. Bringing kindness and “going towards” the self are the keys to transformation. We don’t “get rid” of anything, any part of ourself - we move toward and rediscover these parts that have lived in the shadow, the unconscious - in shame, disgrace, disrespect. As we “move towards”, these aspects lose their charge and no longer “run the show”. We live united within ourself, in wholeness in the world. It’s pretty wonderful.

I began my formal training in the healing arts with therapist-healer-yogini, Janet Evergreen in 2002, studying biodynamic craniosacral therapy and various other modalities. I attended the New Mexico School of Natural Therapeutics in 2009, where I received the title Natural Therapeutics Specialist, earned my LMT (Licensed Massage Therapist) and began my training with Dr. Robert Stevens in Core Synchronism. In my practice, I help people to achieve balance and health through deep but very gentle body and energy work. By clearing physical and more subtle blockages, the results are a more comfortable body and mind and restored balance and harmony to the being.

After graduation from the Univ. of Illinois with a BS in Occupational Therapy, I worked for almost 20 years in acute psychiatric hospitals, then, in the rehab departments of nursing homes and briefly, in the schools, with disabled children. In 2003, with the encouragement of my daughter, a Core Synchronism therapist, I began my Core Synchronism journey. Taking classes yearly, I studied all levels. In 2005, I opened my office and have loved working with my wonderful clients. It has amazed me at the way my Occupational Therapy background has enhanced my practice with my familiarity and comfort with medical and emotional problems. I feel so very fortunate to have this opportunity to continue to help people heal.
