Barbara is a Certified Reiki Master, including Karuna and Angel Reiki. As a student of holistic health since the 1980's, Barbara has also studied many other modalities and also holds a certificate in specialized kinesiology, called Touch for Health. Barbara combines her education and experience to offer a complete energy balancing session.
Barbara received her first Reiki certification in the early 1990's and progressed into the advanced levels over the years. When she decided to pursue it professionally, she felt it would benefit her to have a second certification from an accredited college, so she started all over when a Holistic Healing program was offered by Cerritos Community College in southern California, finishing in 2003.
Shortly thereafter, she was inspired to sign up for the Kinesiology Institute's training in Touch for Health, because she and her family had experienced profound physical healing from this technique.
