Message from Penny
I am a Holistic Health Practitioner
Welcome and thank you for visiting my website!
I believe that healing comes from within. I believe that when we learn how to listen to the signals that our body provides to us, we can navigate disease, illness, and self-healing.
After injuring my back while working in hospital, I found myself riddled with insomnia, anxiety, overwhelming feelings and debilitating pain that soon transformed my life and my vocation. Through learning about brain health and practicing mind-body strategies, I was able to trust myself and break the negative feedback loop that kept me stuck and manifested in my body as stress, anxiety and overwhelm.
Along my healing journey, I found myself studying and mentoring with some of the world's top clinical nurse specialists, psychologists, neurofeedback specialists, craniosacral therapists, acupuncturists, naturopaths, osteopaths and medical intuitives. Today I help men, women and children heal their emotional state and move through the intensity of their emotional trauma in order to move forward in their lives. I have created a private practice integrating eastern and western principles to create brain balancing programs to help you become unstuck.
The essence of my work is to facilitate self-growth by helping you navigate your body's inner wisdom, so you can identify the core challenges and setbacks in your life, and you can overcome them with confidence. I am happy to connect with you to discuss your situation and see how my approach can support you.
Penny has a vast knowledge base of different healing modalities and integrates core principles into her Brain Balancing Programs to faciliate transformation from the inside out.
Healing From the Core
Distance Healing From the Core® sessions allow you to work on-on-one with Penny to explore how a deep, guided connection can facilitate your healing, particularly when travel (or a pandemic) prohibits an in-person session. Distance Healing sessions are guided by your Inner Wisdom – with Penny acting as a Facilitator and sometimes a translator for your healing process. Penny teaches self-awareness skills from the Healing From the Core curriculum as an essential part of her work.
Craniosacral is a gentle, light touch treatment that tunes into where soft tissue or fluid restrictions reside in the body. Using touch and dialogue, both physical and emotional blockages can be released. Penny has been using the principles of Upledger Craniosacral since 2000 and also integrates the principles of unwinding the meridian in her client sessions. A Craniosacral Therapy (CST) session may occur in-person or virtually via distance healing.
Penny has been an essential oil enthusiast for 20+years and respects the powerful healing properties of this form of plant-based medicine. She recognizes that the use of essential oils goes well beyond their fragrant charm. Their unique chemical structure allows them to pass directly through the skin for an immediate systemic response when applied topically. Penny uses essential oils for their energy facilitating properties of moving stagnate emotions in her brain balancing programs.. Penny has trained with and studied the teaching of Desire de Luna and the principles of using essential oils and Chinese medicine, merging together her studies of Craniosacral Therapy and Unwinding the Meridian. Penny teaches core embodiment principles using essential oils as somatic embodiment practices.
Neurological Integration Technique
Neurological Integration System (NIS) is a non-invasive, brain-based health approach that uses neuroplasticity and eastern medicine principles to optimize your body systems. Penny has been actively using NIS in her brain balancing programs to optimize her client's nervous system, since 2011. NIS can be facilitated in-person or virtually via distance healing.
Penny has been a Neurofeedback Practitioner for over 20 years and has trained with Stens Biofeedback Academy & Zengar Institute. Penny continues to provide clinical mentoring and is called upon by her peers for clinical guidance due to her vast knowledge and understanding of role of facilitating a brain training session.
Nursing Instructor/Mentor to Other Health Coaches
As a graduate of the Vancouver General Hospital School of Nursing Program Penny has been a clinical and classroom instructor for both nursing and health care assistant programs, teaching Pharmacology and Nursing Arts. Penny has been teaching wellness topics in the greater Vancouver area for the last 20 years and continues to provide both in person and online workshops that allow you to reconnect to your body wisdom and awaken the power of self-healing for deep transformation. As a natural teacher Penny merges her empathy & intuition coupled with her decades of clinical experience to share her passion and wisdom.
Penny's roots with mind-body medicine began with Therapeutic Touch and Reflexology while working at the B.C. Cancer Agency. Working with clinical nurse specialists Janie Brown and Linda Nixon Penny's introduction into subtle energies and the theory that the body, mind and emotions form a complex energy field began.
Although Penny is a Registered Nurse in Province of British Columbia, she does not provide any treatments as a Registered Nurse in her Brain Balancing Programs. Therefore, it is not to be construed that her services offered on this website are the practice of Registered Nursing, medicine or any other licensed health care practice. She draws on her training, education and experience as Registered Nurse. Her skills set of assessment, education, essential oils and counselling all fall within the scope of Nursing Practice in B.C. and are often integrated into her clinical practice as a holsitc practitioner.
