Freedom to Move's 7th Birthday
This last year has been an exciting year for Freedom To Move. In that time I have completed a two year program in Spiritual Direction allowing me to provide sessions specific to deep listening and companioning your spiritual journey. I have completed three levels of study in Pranic Healing to accentuate deep energetic and physical shifts during each session. I have also been accepted onto the Complementary Healthcare Plans (CHP) panel, which allows me to work with those who have Kaiser Alternative Healthcare plan to receive massage for an affordable co-pay. Last but not least, I am moving into the second year of founding Numinosity LLC, A Center For Wellness with a group of truly extraordinary practitioners offering services from chiropractic, acupuncture, psychotherapy, astrological and business consultation for healers. Numinosity is quickly becoming your one stop center for alternative healthcare needs for all ages! Wow, what a gift!
I deeply appreciate each of you and your unique journeys of transformation. I look forward to continuing to partner with you on your path in freeing your most vibrant, centered, peaceful and joyful self to move through life with ease!

Freedom To Move is excited to offer this unique form of energy work as part of it's palette. This is what founder Master Choa Kok Sui has to say about this modality:
"PRANIC HEALING is a highly developed and tested system of energy based healing techniques that utilizes "prana" to balance, harmonize and transform the body's energy processes. "Prana" is a Sanskrit word that means "life-force". This invisible bio-energy or vital energy keeps the body alive and maintains a state of good health. In acupuncture, the Chinese refer to this subtle energy as "Chi". It is also called "Ruah" or the "Breath of Life" in the Old Testament.
Pranic Healing is a simple yet powerful and effective no-touch energy healing. It is based on the fundamental principle that the body is a "self-repairing" living entity that possesses the innate ability to heal itself. PRANIC HEALING works on the principle that the healing process is accelerated by increasing the life force or vital energy on the affected part of the physical body"
