Esi, the lead practitioner
Before 1998, all I knew about my feet is it took me from point A to B. In 1998, I firmly believed that your “feet are a mirror of the body,” but I did not know how that was true. In 2000, while in China, I had my first massage session, which introduced me to ancient healing modalities. I could not study in China because of the language barrier. Then in 2006, my family moved to Namibia, and that was when I started my bodywork and Holistic nutrition training. There was no bodywork training institute in Namibia then, so I had to make several trips to the Republic of South Africa, where I studied therapeutic reflexology and Biodynamic CranioSacral therapy.
Upon returning to the United States, I went ahead and graduated from the Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA) clinical massage program and became licensed and certified by the Virginia State Department of Nursing to provide massage and bodywork. And since 2013, I have had the pleasure of learning several other bodywork modalities that includes That includes biodynamic craniosacral therapy, lypossage (deep lymphatic drainage), and visceral manipulation.
Functional Nutrition journey
I have always had a passion for nutrition. So, I decided to take the holistic nutrition pathway to understand the body’s physiology through the feet from a “holistic” lens. I attended several holistic training schools that provided an integrative understanding of nutrition, body physiology, and tissue integration. Looking through this lens, I knew I needed to understand more about my health journey.
Who I am.
My health journey took me through that part of ” I am not sick, but I know that everything is not alright in my body”. This pathway opens up optimizing my health using several specialty lab assessments that you can check out here. My passion now is to help individual optimize their body so that their body can continue doing what it knows best. Just let me know if you are ready to do that.
