Holistic Healing

Zhi Healthy Alternatives came about as a result of my desire to help people discover and engage their own ability to heal. Having recovered from fibromyalgia using only holistic methods, I am determined to support people who are trying to find ways to improve their health naturally.

When I was diagnosed, and discovered there were no viable medical options, I turned to alternative therapies, including dietary change, yoga, psychology, and spiritual inquiry. In the process of my own healing, I was motivated to study nutrition, yoga, and holistic health.

I develop individual lifestyle plans which help bring clients into balance on many levels, and allow natural healing to occur. I have a sincere interest in people and a practical approach to problem solving. This has been instrumental in helping my clients achieve their wellness goals.

I believe we hold the power to facilitate the work of our physicians by using the tools of yoga, nutrition, movement, and stress reduction. I am currently a yoga therapist in-training in the Viniyoga tradition in the lineage of Sri T. Krishnamacharya and TKV Desikachar.
