Hi, I'm Abby. I'm a wife and mother of four. I have been on a health journey since 2012, in dealing with implications of Lyme disease. For many years I went from doctor to doctor trying to figure out the root cause of my symptoms and eventually I decided to become my own health advocate. I began researching how to help my body heal on its own and saw great value in the power of food in changing how I felt. By exploring a whole foods diet, free from processed ingredients, I made major strides in my health. But a major piece of the of the puzzle was still missing and that was in managing my stress. Stress and trauma are major contributors to our health and huge levels of stress had stalled my progress. At my doctors suggestion, I tried energy work through reiki and my healing soared to a new level. I quickly realized that the release of stored emotions and the ability to get my body into a parasympathetic state were pivotal in my healing. In 2019 I completed my training as a Holy Fire Reiki Master and received my certificate in Nutritional Therapy in 2022, formalizing my education in nutrition as a healing modality. Combined with my experience as a former high school counselor my focus is on incorporating nutrient dense foods and spiritual/trauma healing to aid in your own health journey.
Reiki, pronounced ray-key, promotes overall balance—balance of the mind, body, and spirit. It is a method in stress reduction that also promotes healing. It is administered by the reiki practitioner gently laying hands on or just above the client in the channeling of life force energy. Reiki can bring emotional balance, clarity and self awareness. In addition, it can balance the chakras and auric field. Studies have shown that reiki is effective in managing pain, anxiety, irregular heart rate, blood pressure and salivary cortisol.
As a nutritional therapist, I believe that the body has an innate wisdom to heal itself. By focusing on the foundations of health beginning with a properly prepared whole foods diet and diving deeper into the individual needs of the client to explore digestion, blood sugar regulation, mineral balance, fatty acids, hydration, and stress clients can optimize their health and be brought back into balance. I take a food first approach to healing and honor each client's individual needs in empowering them on their journey towards health and healing.
