Health is a culmination of balance in the mind, body, and spirit. In Buddhist teachings, lack of health (illness) often occurs when our natural state of balance is thrown off of its delicate equilibrium. Eastern medicines and practices aim to restore and strengthen this balance, by reinforcing a deeper understanding of life, purpose, and our inner light.
In my life I have delt with depression, acne, and bulimia, all resulting from fearing the desire to control, being around toxic environments and a lack of self acceptance and self love. My sophomore year of collage, I was in such a depressive state that I was unable to return to school, and came home to Los Angeles to heal. I was taken to a psychiatrist, who immediately put me on prozac. I took the anti-depressive pill for 3 days. I didn't feel sad, but I didn't feel happy. I actually didn't feel anything. I was totally numb. I stopped after 3 days and decided to heal myself naturally. I began journaling every day, going on long walks every morning, began doing yoga, eating clean and healthy foods, and getting to know myself. It was a road of recovery that led me to meeting myself. And I fell in love, for the first time in my life, with Karly. Not as a daughter, a student, a soccer player, a friend, but as Karly - the soul and spirit. I found what made me light up, what inspired me, and what made me feel good! Since that initial journey into the unknown abyss of self love and acceptance, I have continued to flow with the current of alignment, consciously feeling this balance and seeing where I was able to be my best self in jobs, friendships, habits, and relationships.
My journey with holistic medicine and healing practices has been rich and varied. I am honored to share with you teachers and healers who have come into my life from some incredible souls who have been huge inspirations and leaders on my journey. I would like to give a special thank you to my beautiful friend Allie Michelle for opening my eyes to this world of crystals, reiki, yoga, and being a true and infinite goddess. My soul is eternally grateful to yours.
Reiki is translated to life-force energy. It was first discovered and documented in India, and transcribed in the ancient sacred Veda teachings. It was then re-discovered by Usui Sensei in Japan. He taught this style of energy healing at his home in Koyoto, Japan, where he taught Mrs. Hawayo Takata, who eventually brought Reiki to the Western World.
My first reiki healing was with Wendy Both. Talk about goddess energy. Wendy is a dynamic combination of cooling water and grounded earth, with the truth of fire, and the benevolence of air. Her energy is of a true healer. Wendy balanced my energy, tapped into my guides so that I could ask questions, and even saw my past lives. Her office is based in LA, and she also does house calls.
I was lucky to study my level 1 Reiki with Andreia. A native Brazilian, she is a wealth of information and lives with such passion for healing. If you are interested in learning more about the art of reiki and how you can become a healer, she is a wonderful source.
Past Life Regression Therapy:
Past life regression is a technique that uses hypnosis to recover what practitioners believe are memories of past lives or incarnations. It places you in a state of complete relaxation and trust, which allows the subconscious mind to step into a state of complete remembrance of all of your past lives and encounters. This type of therapy can be extremely helpful in healing traumas, phobias, fears, and deep rooted patterns that have been surfacing for many lifetimes. It can also bring clarity and shed light on how you relate in your current lifetime.
One of the most fascinating experiences during past life regression is that you are able to meet souls that have surfaced again in your current lifetime! During my past life regressions, I have found that I have been predominately male, which explains my connection to the physical world, my competitive spirit, and my higher libido. In my last session, I saw myself as a man named Henry on a beach in Ireland. I was with my love, who's name was Molly. I had never met Molly in this lifetime, but her light and the immense happiness I felt radiating from her and from my own soul, is the same light that I feel with my boyfriend Luccas. This light is the light that my soul seeks in each lifetime, and my heart has thrived with this passionate monogamy for many lifetimes.

Colon hydrotherapy is like the elevated sister of colonics. Warm water is used to gently cleanse and reshape the colon, removing toxins and feces that have been stuck in the body for years. Along with the physical removal of toxins, hydrotherapy is also therapeutic for the mind and spirit. Our body stores past traumas, guilt, and anxiety from our childhood (and even past lives) that stay in the body and cause illness. Hydrotherapy gently removes these toxins and combines talk and intuitive therapy to give a multidimensional cleanse.
