Five years ago I started as a yogi at Tranquil Space. Now I am honored to be part of the team in The Spa as a Naturopathic Doctor.
What pulled me in as a yogi, and kept me returning to Tranquil Space was the sense of community and like-minded individuals. Beyond the boundless benefits of yoga, I was reminded to honor and connect with purpose and intention while creating the space for gratitude and mindfulness. And of course, the attention to detail like cookies, tea, and lavender spray were icing on the cake.
When the opportunity came to join the Tranquil Space team, it was such an obvious decision and a blessing.
My focus as a doctor is to support each patient in his or her journey towards optimal cellular health to spiritual health. Optimal health is mental, emotional, and physical wellness, not merely an absence of disease. I use drug free treatments such as homeopathy, craniosacral therapy, botanical medicine, nutritional counseling, colon hydrotherapy, and lifestyle management.
In order to have a broad view of their background and to understand where they’re coming from, I devote ample time to hearing each patient’s story. It’s not just about what they have: headache, eczema, diabetes, hypertension, cancer. It is who they are. I treat people, not diseases.
My goal is for my patients to experience what it’s like to feel better – and then stay that way. How are they eating, working, resting, eliminating, sleeping, exercising, and feeling? With this information, I can then begin to see what needs support or balance.
Through patient education, I teach patients about how their bodies work, so that they are more empowered in making decisions that support wellness. Treatment plans are tailored to each individual – whether the concentration is on the more physical, mental, emotional, or energetic level. Most often than not, treatment involves supporting multiple levels.
I come to work every day in full gratitude that I am part of a community that embraces passion, innovation, creativity, and compassion. And the great thing is, now all I have to do is go downstairs to practice my yoga!
