About Dharma Spirit
Dharma Spirit has been in operation since 1994. It initially offered weekly Yoga classes and Aromatherapy massage. However, with Katherine’s renewal of health, came a strong passion and desire to learn. Over the next few years, she continued certification in the following: Advanced Foot Reflexology, Hand Reflexology, Master Reiki, Master Karuna Reiki, Yoga Philosophy, Vedic Astrology, Ayurveda, Yoga Teacher Trainer, Colon Hydrotherapy, Angel Therapy, Jin Shin Do Acupressure, Clinical Hypnotherapy, Iridology, Sclerology and Nutrition. The numerous trainings provided Katherine with a focus and mission.
Dharma Spirit’s mission is to provide the best possible up to date Holistic Health Care for all people. Whether you want to optimize your health and energy, be pro-active towards family hereditary markers or deal with a pre-existing chronic health challenge, this is the place for you. Holistic Health Care can help you regain lost energy. It can help you make sound nutritional, cleansing and life-style choices to decrease the chance suffering from the same health challenges as family members. Lastly, if you are suffering from a chronic stubborn health that you have not had success defeating, perhaps now is the time to try a whole new approach. Katherine did, and it not only saved her life, but gave her a quality of life she did not even deem possible!
At Dharma Spirit, the first step is to determine any current nutritional imbalances in the body. This can be done through:
Each form of analysis tells the client and the practitioner something unique. The Nutritional Analysis is good for determining if there are any specific nutritional needs that are not being met in the body at this time. The Live-Blood Microscopy lets us know the immediate condition of the terrain in the body, specifically the blood. The can help determine life-style and dietary changes, and will also help determine some of the supplements required. Iridology can determine our genetic markers. Sclerology can show if there are any current happenings in the body such as neoplasm, even before any symptoms have begun. Thus, we have a whole picture of what is required for optimal health. Once we determine genetics, current nutritional needs and current status of the body, the next item is to start a detoxification program for the body. A person can skip this step, and just go right to step three, supplementation, diet and lifestyle. However, if the body is not cleansed, the supplements will not be completely absorbed. And, instead of nutrients entering the blood stream, toxins are. Thus, all the cleansing organs: skin, liver, lungs and kidneys are being over worked. This leaves the possibility of dis-ease. In conclusion, the second step, detoxification is critical to complete success.
Dharma Spirit also recognizes the roll of emotions, the mind and spirit in relation to health. With Katherine’s experience in acurpressure, Reiki, yoga teacher training, clinical hypnotherapy, and personal recovery she can help guide one towards tools that may help one forgive, release, and create room for joy. This completes the picture of complete and total health.
