All too often, “perfectly healthy” people are plagued with ailments like chronic pain, fatigue, and depression. Despite restricted diets, plenty of exercise, immune system boosting supplements, and other preventative practices – these issues continue to crop up. What could be the cause?
There is an invisible force that must be investigated to pinpoint the root cause of these mystery illnesses – a powerful part of our anatomy that has the greatest impact on our wellbeing: the energy field.
For context, if your conscious and subconscious mind are an iceberg, the energy field would be the whole ocean around it. It’s the powerful invisible force that surrounds...

Nationwide, over 40 million people suffer from anxiety and depression is the leading cause of disability.
If you have health concerns or you’re struggling with illness, there is hope. Open your heart and believe in your ability to tap into the biggest healing force of all: the power of loving yourself.

Nurturing your body/mind/soul connection is your greatest mission in life.
Healing from within is a journey, and you may find your TRUE self along...
Earlier this month I traveled to the spectacular island of Mykonos, Greece for the Enrich Global Retreat. I was a speaker and instructor for an intimate gathering focused on aligning the mind, body, soul, and heart to improve connection, communication, and well-being in relationships.
The event was orchestrated by my dear friend Darya Haitoglou, an award-winning psychologist and relationship coach. Every day of this 5-day journey was expertly curated for 40 guests from 15 different countries to enjoy a beautiful destination while deepening their grasp of life-changing tools, techniques, and practices.
The energy of Mykonos was so grounding. I felt truly rooted and refreshed during my time there, even though I was busy facilitating sessions all day and performing energy work on clients late into the night. I soaked in some local sights between engagements, and delighted in the rich tapestry of landscapes, crystal clear blue waters, and opulent infrastructure of the city. The food...
How often do you feel your head hits the pillow at night, and for the first time all day there was nothing demanding your attention? What if I told you that if you set aside as little as 5 minutes a day to intentionally eliminate distractions and embrace a quiet stillness, you could improve your health, reduce stress levels, and increase your productivity? Meditation is an incredible tool you can implement, even with a packed calendar, to clarify your purpose and elevate your consciousness.
With hectic to-do lists, constant technology pings, and demanding schedules it can be hard to enjoy a grounded moment or even feel present in your body. Imagine being able to fulfill all your obligations more easily, and sink deeper into a mindset of gratitude, embrace prosperity consciousness, and find clarity. Allowing this stillness can result in finally healing old wounds, opening your...

When we are in balance our energy is good. We sleep better, have more vitality, recover faster. We are happier and healthier. Our mood is lighter, our intuition clearer.
When we are out of balance our energetic field is stagnant and blocked. We are quick to become ill and slow to recover. We don’t feel rested even with plenty of sleep. We suffer from negative emotional patterns.
Our precious body has innate intelligence that is always seeking a state of balance. Known as homeostasis, it keeps us healthy, happy and even alive.
We are beings of energy, living in a world of energy. We create energy and we consume it. We sense energy even if we can't see it. It surrounds and flows through us and influences our every thought and action. Energy is the currency of balance.
Many of us lead disconnected lives; disconnected from our surroundings, from our bodies, from each other. Daily we are exposed to...
Leaky Gut or Intestinal Hyper-permeability is such an important topic in my daily life and work. Gut Health is linked to so many functions in the body: Digestion, Hormone Metabolism, Brain Function (Serotonin), Skin health, Happiness, and overall well-being.
In most cases people don’t feel well, or feel sluggish when gut is overpopulated with offending agents such as: Candida Albicans overgrowth, bad bacteria, viruses, parasites. Not only does this drain our energy physically, but mentally and emotionally as well.
Even though my work is primarily focused on Chakra Clearing and Balancing, I always address Gut Health, and the importance of healthy and supportive eating habits. Physical wellbeing can’t be excluded from Spiritual and Mental well-being. All of the systems work in unison.
When Gut is off balance, then our chakras are off balance as well. Most of the time I recognize a repeating pattern in most of my patients: when Gut health is not addressed, the...
Today I want to focus on a special case.
One rainy afternoon, I received a call from a patient that I hadn’t seen in a while because of his hectic work schedule. He came into my office with extreme anxiety upon returning from weeks of business travels. His symptoms included: shortness of breath, pressure in his chest and a racing heart. His anxiety was so detrimental that he was either going to see me or go to the emergency room. I told him that he should go to the ER if he doesn’t feel better after our session.
Our health is directly correlated with how open and balanced our chakras are.
His first and fourth chakras were blocked resulting in disconnection, lack of grounding and the energetic obstruction of his heart/love center.
The Root chakra or 1st chakra is associated...
