Your experience, in group sessions of dialogue and embodied practice, as well as with exquisite solo treatments, conceived to open you at a soul level, is is built around her heartfelt belief in the 5 Elements. This is an ancient Chinese code or understanding the natural world and how we, as humans, relate to it in terms of our physical health and psychological behaviours.
