With her scientific background in cancer research augmented by her experience in movement therapy, deep relaxation techniques and multifaceted aspects of self-healing, she has become acutely aware of the needs of people affected by stress and dis-ease.

During a healing session with Thea, with the bowls placed on your body, the sound spectrum with overtones supports your relaxation, the natural desire for harmony of the body, and positively influences the mobilization of it's self-healing power.

Licensed Acupuncturist and Massage Therapist
Valerie completed her 200-hour teacher training with Awakened Warrior in Southern California in 2016. She truly fell in love with yoga back in High School and has been practicing ever since! Some of her favorite classes to teach are outside where the students can connect with nature and feel the earth under their feet. Besides teaching yoga, Val attended a small bible college to study counseling and is now currently obtaining a degree in English/Creative Writing. She one day hopes to combine the power of words with healing.
