Cara Cooper

Future Medicine will be based on controlling energy in the body.” Professor William Tiller, Stanford University

Diseases are to be diagnosed and prevented via energy field assessment.” George Crile, Sr, MD, Founder of the Cleveland Clinic 1864-1943

The above quotes are some of my favorites!  Whether you understand the science behind Energy Medicine or believe in Energy Medicine, the absolute reality is, it will still work for you!

My journey down the “rabbit hole” began with a BodyTalk™ Course in 2015.  Since then I have had an insatiable thirst for learning everything I can about Energy Medicine.

As my knowledge and confidence grew, I began layering more healing frequencies into my client’s sessions.

All of the techniques I use are non-invasive yet highly effective at improving mental, emotional and physical health. Your body always wants what is best for you and your health.

I tap into what your body has marked as “most important” for release, in order to initiate your body’s natural healing process.  With BodyTalk, internal electrical communications within your body’s systems improve. This has a “healing” ripple effect on all levels of Consciousness within Mind, Body and Spirit – essentially impacting your overall health.  Layering the additional healing modalities’ frequencies together, I am moving energy and clearing energy which is no longer serving you, from your body’s internal energetic electrical systems, and your Electromagnetic field – improving overall health.

Any number of the following modalities are used in an Intuitive Healing Session; BodyTalk™, Seqex Therapy, Crystal Healing, Intuitive Hands on Healing, Celtic Reiki, Veltheim Method of Lymphatic Drainage, Chakra Balancing, Energy Clearing and Charging, Aura Infusion and Color Infusion.

I have taken the following Courses;

The Bodytalk™ System

BodyTalk™ Fundamentals 1&2, BodyTalk™Fundamentals Integration, BodyTalk™Access, BodyTalk™Access for Animals, Advanced BodyTalk™Protocol and Procedure, Principles of Consciousness, BodyTalk™ Bio-Dynamics, The Soul’s Journey – Exploring the Mind and the 3 Brains, CDRRRII, Veltheim Method of Lymphatic Drainage & Applied Physiology and Anatomy, Intro to Body Psychology, Mindscape

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy

Certified Crystal Healing Course & Advanced Crystal Master Course

I wouldn’t be in the field of Energy Medicine, if I did not believe in it’s powerful effects of healing.  After reading an extensive on going list of books from authors such as Lissa Rankin MD, Gabor Mate MD, Barbara Hoberman Levine and Jan De Vries ND as well as seeing the healing that has occurred with Energy Medicine, I truly believe in the next twenty years, we will have the science to confirm what many once sick, now healthy people have experienced on a personal level.  I hold the space as well as layer the healing frequencies, while empowering you to tap into and connect to your power to heal on all levels Mind, Body and Spirit.

Valerie Dingman

Valerie’s life has been dedicated to understanding  how  the body, mind, emotions and our experiences create who we are as human beings and animals. She became a medical health professional in part because of her fascination with how the brain works. Valerie is a registered Speech Language Pathologist who has 30 years of experience dealing with both children’s and adults’ communication challenges.

She attended U.B.C. in the 1980’s, living and working in Vancouver BC, a place which provided a rich venue of exploration in both allopathic medicine and alternative means of healing. This in turn fueled her own personal spiritual quest and studies.

A serious back injury in 1991 that lasted 18 months but was healed instantaneously when working with a practitioner  who used energy and acupressure techniques,  triggered studying  energy healing in earnest. Valerie is certified in a number of energy and body work methods, as well as in systems that address mental/emotional facets, using techniques such as age-regression and re-patterning to heal trauma and negative beliefs.  These core beliefs can keep us repeating patterns of behaviours and staying stuck in emotions of fear, anger and sadness. Session work involves identifying and shifting limiting beliefs, and emotional, energy and/or physical releases, employing a variety of therapeutic techniques.

In 2013 Valerie completed a 2-year advanced shamanism program and practises and facilitates earth based ceremonies and journeys. She incorporates soul retrieval and other shamanic techniques into her client practise in the tradition of shamanic healers and as an adjunct to her own Earth-based spiritual practice.

Valerie’s Qualifications:

Reiki energy healing (Level II)

Polarity practitioner (Associate level)

The Results System practitioner (West Virginia Institute of Higher Healing, practitioner), includes muscle activated body alignments and acupressure

Conscious Core Transformation system -Belief System and Emotional Pattern re-programming (practitioner and instructor levels)

Diane Finlayson

Diane is a Reiki Master/Teacher/Practitioner, and a Practitioner of Causal Realignment and Etheric Healing.  She teaches Reiki, Levels I to Master, facilitates classes in Mindfulness (MBSR), for adults and children, and holds spiritual development classes based on Universal Esoteric Principles.

Her ultimate goal in all healing practices and teachings is to make knowledge and process available to you, so that you may become empowered to integrate changes into your life, to learn how to self heal and to maintain a healthy life style balance.

Diane’s initial work experiences began in Early Childhood Education and spanned several years of management in the business arena.  Now, with over 40 years of experience in working with people of all ages, in various settings, and in various situations, she has a keen desire to facilitate empowerment allowing those with whom she works to reclaim their ‘life’ through a process of integration.

In everything she teaches, and in all healing therapy sessions, the mantra is ‘Learn (Discover), Process, Practice and Apply’ .

The body is an integral unit, Mind, Body and Spirit working together in perfect synchronicity.   How we maintain this perfect integration, how we nurture self on all levels and how we learn to navigate and integrate the balance in our daily life is a key element.

Diane is always a student of the Greater Mysteries of Life, the esoteric principles and universal laws which govern us on every level with ongoing and continuous studies.
