After fours years studying Mechanical Engineering I spent 11 years working for General Electric (GE). I became an expert at analyzing large amounts of information and data and turning it into something useful. In my late 30s I had three children and was able to stay home with them for 9 years. They helped me deepen my interpersonal skills including compassion, patience, and the ability to truly listen. When I became sick in 2007 I turned my analytical skills and listening abilities inward and found out how complicated the body and healing can be. I saw that Western (‘Modern’) Medicine had a lot of data but it didn’t describe enough of what was going on inside me to heal me. I found that Ancient and Alternative Medicine not only better described what was happening inside me but provided many more ways to heal me. (For more details on my journey back to health go to the Silver Mountain Health Blog tab). I returned to school to immerse myself in one of the most well known ancient medicines – Chinese Medicine. The Chinese Medicine curriculum not only trains your mind to analyze the patient, but can also train your body to hear the patient and train your hands to be a tool to help heal them. How is this possible? Via the Energy aspect of ancient medicine. Once I connected with this side of Chinese Medicine, all forms of energy healing became accessible. From Ayurveda to connecting directly with my Medical Qi Gong lineage, which dates back to 705 BCE. And it is not just historical information that can be accessed but present day and developing information as well. ‘Energy Space’ (as I prefer to call it) contains a treasure trove of information to be explored and transformed into healing. It is these treasures I share with my patients every day and I will share with you in the pages of this book.
