March 24, 2008 Quantum Biofeedback Device

There are many modalities to choose from today when searching for complementary services.

One of the most popular services I offer in my clinic is the Quantum Biofeedback. It is one of the best ways to improve one's health and well-being. The device is designed to identify the energetic imbalances or stressors which have an impact on one's health. The purpose of the device is to scan the body for these stressors and to provide feedback to the body to reduce those stressors so the body may heal itself. It scans the body, much like a virus scan on the computer. The negative affects of stress are known to be the most common causes for dis-ease in the body.

Quantum biofeedback is excellent for children and pets, too. For those who are not able to communiate their stressors, a Quantum Biofeedback session could unearth stressors that may be preventing the body from healing itself.

March 8, 2008 Horses love essential oils, too!

I have been teaching an introductory aromatherapy workshop at the British Columbia College of Equine Therapy for the past seven years. I am currently preparing for that annual spring workshop. The students and graduates of the College have been using true essential oils with great success. Subsequently, equine aromatherapy is becoming very popular.

This year, I am able to incorporate both the workshop, attendance, and an aromatherapy presentation at the first symposium presented by the Canadian Association of Holistic Equine Practitioners, called Equine Holistic Awareness Symposium. It is Saturday, April 19th at the Armstrong, BC Fairgrounds. For further information please see

My book, Essential Guide to Animal Aromatherapy, has been very popular and was written with the beginner in mind. It has easy to use charts and this book can go with you everywhere.

For those who wish to have a more in-depth study of the use of true aromatherapy for animals, I offer a Certified Animal Aromatherapist program through the Western Institute of Aromatherapy.

I have recently moved my office and as soon as I am able to locate the files with the case studies regarding horses, I will post them on my website.

Most people as how and where to get started using essential oils. The essential oil starter kit for the beginner is offered at The Fragrant Garden website. It comes with guidelines on how to use essential oils for horses. I sincerely hope you will enjoy using essential oils as much as I have for the past eighteen years.

March 3, 2008 Aromatherapy

Spring is just around the corner! As I was writing my article for the Neighbourhood Express I was reminded of the different seasons and how the use of essential oils is appropriate with each season. Sunburn, insect bites and stings, repelling insects, and cuts and scrapes are only a few of the spring and summer maladies that we can use essential oils to soothe. I like to include a recipe or two in the article to assist everyone in using their essential oils. You will find the article on my website.

Aromatherapy exams were completed last weekend. It is such a pleasure working with the students and viewing their progress. The case studies indicated the pleasure of the recipients is experiencing essential oils.

I have taught a one day course on using essential oils for home and personal use for many years. It has been very popular as not everyone is interested in becoming a certified aromatherapist. For convenience I have put that course into CD and booklet format for home study. Everyone can feel competent in using essential oils for prevention purposes for home use.
