I am the originator of TRIVAnetics – The Cybernetic Approach To Healing, a healing program that retrains and reeducates the brain and muscles to integrate body and mind effectively and virtually reduces pain. I am the author of "TRIVAnetics- The Cybernetic Approach To Healing Your Back Pain", and the co-author of the forthcoming book "Healing with Awareness: Unleash Your Dormant Healing Power". Having suffered from excruciating shoulder and back pain for many years after a serious accident in 1990, I was able to find complete healing within only a couple of months simply by understanding and applying the body’s and the mind’s own healing powers.
Triggered by my spontaneous healing in 1998, I began to extensively study the body and the mind, especially about human potential and the body’s self-healing capacity. My main interest is the interconnectedness of the body, mind, and brain.
I became a Nia Technique Brown Belt Teacher, danced with Gabrielle Roth and Jonathan Horan of The 5 Rhythms, and with Vinn Marti, founder of Soul Motion™. I explored the martial art forms of Aikido, Tai Chi and Taekwondo to improve my movement skills and to better understand the energy flow in the body. In 2001, I received the Dai Ko Myo Initiation (Third Reiki Level 3A) and began to incorporate Reiki into my teaching and treatments. Between 2003 and 2015, I attended several Educo® Seminars with Dr. Tony Quinn to learn about human potential, and also trained to become a personal trainer with EDUCOgym® in 2006, a fitness training that specifically uses the mind aspect in weight training and losing weight.
Since 1998, I have taught Body Awareness, Movement and Back Pain classes in health centers and gyms and worked with private clients all over the world, with remarkable results. I teach my clients body-centered awareness, positive mental attitude, and a lifestyle that focuses on living in the present moment, thus allowing the individual to make wiser decisions for their body and their lives on a moment-to-moment basis.
