"The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away." Pablo Picasso
Congratulations on taking the time to explore options that support your health and your family's well-being.
If you want to be healthy, fit and active, you've found a home!
Though we all wish to live a healthy, balanced life, it's become much harder to achieve. With our fast-paced lifestyle, the effects of modern technology, and the impact of environmental toxins, we are more often living a life out-of-balance.
Health trends show that chronic disease, which is at an all time high, is influenced by stress ("the silent killer"), a lack of quality sleep, compromised indoor air, toxins in our drinking water, unnatural indoor lighting and processed foods that lack nutrition. The good news - these are all factors that can be controlled.
Our daily choices and habits determine the quality of life that we will develop. Even small, consistent choices, over time, can make a radical difference - for better or for worse. The results affect our health, relationships, happiness, income and overall success.
In 1990, I opened a private practice as a Holistic Practitioner and Educator combining a variety of energy medicine and healing arts practices. From 1998-2007, I was Founder and Director of "Holistic Alternatives," a ME licensed proprietary school providing accredited training programs in the healing arts and personal enrichment seminars for the community. As an independent contractor, I partnered with massage schools as a Polarity Therapy Instructor, and I was a frequent Guest Speaker for businesses and educational facilities throughout the state of Maine.
In 2005, my introduction to Nikken, a Japanese Health Research Institute, expanded my scope of practice. Though I have enjoyed a plethora of personal product experiences, I was thrilled that Nikken's wellness home environment and innovative wellness solutions were instrumental in my total recovery from a near-death heart health challenge, triggered by chemical toxins, that the medical community did not expect me to recover from.
Nikken offers a holistic approach to health through self-care and active wellness. Their leading-edge, science-based products and technologies replicate nature with pure air, clean energized water, natural light, magnetic, far-infrared and negative ion technology, organic-based nutrition, advanced sleep technology, and marine based, eco-certified organic skincare.
These all-natural, non-invasive, non-chemical, unique and innovative products create an environment for the body to recover and to renew. They also promote increased energy and enhanced performance. As people make sustainable changes that improve their health and the health of their family, they automatically become part of a grass-roots movement of creating a healthier world - a fulfilling and rewarding side benefit that everyone enjoys.
I am passionate about being healthy, living well, enriching the lives of others and making a difference in the world - I look forward to introducing you to Nikken and the ability to achieve a better quality of health and life!
Be Healthy By Choice, Not By Chance

"Divine Elegance" is a 7-minute photographic prose presentation I created for PechaKucha, a community-sharing event. It would be more appropriately placed on my PhotoArt page, yet it resides here.
