I have been in love with New York City ever since moving here with my family from Romania in 1990. I have enjoyed a career in technology and finance spanning 17 years and during this time experienced stress of all shapes and sizes. In recent years, I have made a conscious choice to be more mindful about my consumption, seeing the effects on the people and the world. I bring my experiences and my love for the city and the world to this venture.
My thirst for knowledge of everything related to the natural world, health and wellness started when I attended my first yoga class in 2001 and embarked on a path that was going to be both wondrous and fulfilling, with challenges great and small. My interests and studies include massage therapy and bodywork as well as energy medicine (Reiki in the traditional Usui method and Shamanic Reiki, healing through gong sound resonance, sound balancing through Biofield Tuning), aromatherapy, Kundalini yoga and meditation.
In addition to holding a degree in Massage Therapy, I am also a Biofield Tuning Practitioner, Reiki Master Teacher, Certified Clinical Aromatherapist, and a registered yoga and meditation instructor. I am currently living on the Upper East Side in New York City, with two very adorable cats, Eden and Joy.
In my practice, I integrate various energy work that allows us to live more fully in the present moment, being in touch with our bodies and allowing for deep healing to occur at the mental, emotional and physical level.
My love for the healing arts started with a simple desire to educate, to gather and share knowledge on holistic approaches to wellness into daily life, living more simply and more connected to nature and to our own actions. In my studies, I have discovered first-hand the effects of the gong sound bath, as well as sound and chakra balancing through the sound resonance of the tuning forks and the gentle practice of Reiki. I have not only been a student through my own physical, emotional and spiritual challenges, but also a teacher to myself, applying all that I have discovered for a deeper understanding of the healing arts.
