It is believed that each body is fully unique in its own. Every body grows in life enduring different levels of pain, illness, trauma, and dis-ease, each one causing disruption to the mind, body and spirit. When the body is approached with a sincere touch, healing intent, and understanding of the uniqueness of each individual, the body can truly begin to heal.
The mind, body and spirit are intricateley woven together as one. When we fail to keep all parts of self in balance, we create dis-ease within. Through time, the dis-ease starts manifesting itself, creating a physical disease within the body. A balance must be achieved in all parts of self to obtain a healthy and happy life.
Cheers to a happy, healthy, mind, body and spirit!

The human body is a sacred temple, delicate as the lotus flower, strong as the mountains, and ever changing as life itself. If we take care and love this beautiful temple we call self, life becomes more gratifying, more fulfilling and more meaningful in every waking moment.
For centuries, wise women from all over the world have helped individuals, villages and communities through their wise women ways; using herbs, womanly intuition, and ancient knowledge passed down from one wise woman to another. This is the approach that Randi uses in helping others. Trained as a Massage Therapist, Herbalist, Iridologist and Yoga Instructor, she has worked to integrate all parts of her training to create a systematic approach to natural health and nourishment. Through proper nourishment, cleansing, exercise, body awareness, and a positive mind set, one can feel fully integrated, in mind, body and spirit. It gives Randi great pleasure in helping others through their personal journey towards a higher self, and the beautiful journey we call life.
Iris readings can determine the condition of ones organs and body systems. Once determined, a specialized diet, cleansing routine, and mind/body regimen is put into place. Through proper cleansing, the body is able to rid itself of years of excess toxins. Toxins accumulate in our bodies through poor diet, air pollution, chemical exposure, processed foods, and an overall unhealthy lifestyle. By making healthy food choices, the body is able to regain the nutrition that it has been deprived of and the organs start to function properly again.
Herbs are apart of our total ecology, and being such, lend themselves to humanity to assist in integrating and healing our physical bodies. The use of herbs can be a tool of growing consciousness, to recognize holism. As an herbalist, I ask all clients to look at how to make their environment, activities and habits supporting to ones own life. When ones does this, a contribution to a change of consciousness is made. As each individuals awareness grows, a contribution to the illumination of ones self and the whole Earth is made.
Massage is an effective way to ease tension within the mind and body, and can further have an effect upon the spirit. We are all bodies of energy, carrying our own vibration within. Massage not only helps in increasing blood flow, easing tension, helping digestive disorders, easing anxiety, and relieving stress, it also helps in bringing a balance back to our own unique vibration.
Yoga is a personal practice, a journey of self discovery, a knowingness of ones body, a let go of the mind and a place and time of serene peace within. It takes time, dedication and self disciple to keep up with a fully integrated practice. Randi was trained in Raja Dhiraja Yoga through the Himalayan Yoga Institute in India in 2012. Raja Dhiraja is the most complete, all around systematic and scientific process for the development of the body, mind, and soul.
