Classes & Workshops

I have over 1000 hours of classroom study time in the combined fields of Energy Kinesiology and Natural Health. I have combined my knowledge and passion for complementary medicine, health and healing to create and teach the classes below. My passion and joy to teach and share my knowledge is evident in my teaching style. I have been teaching since 2004. I am also available to teach or present a class or workshop to your group.


“Got Lyme?”

Do you remember the commercial “Got Milk?” where some famous actor or athlete is holding a glass of milk in their hand with a white ‘milk mustache’ on their upper lip? Unfortunately, Lyme disease is not so obvious. In fact, it is a very misunderstood disease making it very under diagnosed causing it to then be mistreated. In fact, the testing for Lyme is SO inaccurate that in spring of 2016 a bill was passed in Maryland requiring doctors to have patients sign a statement that the patient understands that a negative Lyme test result may not be accurate and that they may actually have Lyme disease.

I am hosting a workshop for Lyme disease to give you the opportunity to learn about Lyme disease, what is it and why it is so difficult to treat.

We all know someone who has been affected by Lyme disease so please pass this notice along to ANYONE you know who may be affected and/or interested in learning more about Lyme disease and alternative ways to addressing this illness.

RESET 1

This is a simple and non-invasive system of relaxing jaw muscles enabling the temporomandibular joint to reset. RESET (Rafferty Energy System of Easing the Temporomandibular joint) allows anyone to simply and rapidly access and direct this healing energy.

By sending healing energy into the muscles and tendons that relate to the Temporomandibular joint (TMJ), we relax both these muscles and the organs and glands to which they relate. In doing this the TMJ can reset into its correct position, thereby rebalancing the whole body. This balances the body’s hydration, structure, muscles, neurology, glands and organs.

Time: 3 hours
Cost: $80 for first time participants, discounted price of $20 for repeaters.

Balancing Nutrition & Toxicity

This is a group “healing” session designed to help strengthen the body in many ways. The body’s ability to become and remain properly hydrated is an important piece of optimum health that is commonly overlooked. Once hydrated, the body is better equipped to assimilate and utilize its minerals. Then the body is better able to assimilate and utilize its vitamins. When the body is strong and functioning at its best it is better equipped to eliminate the toxins that cause illness and disease. The toxins targeted in this “healing” session are fluoride and heavy metals; however, it is very possible that removal of these toxins from the body may lead to other toxins being eliminated as well.

Time: 30 minutes
Cost: $35
Class participation is limited to 8 (one-on-one sessions are available, if preferred).
Prerequisites: NONE

“It’s time to take back my power”

This is an interactive workshop designed to create self-empowerment through the use of words and belief systems. Most people don’t appreciate the power of words and therefore they do not give much thought to the words they use. Words have a lot of power; they carry so much energy which then creates tremendous power. When words are used in sentences they become even more powerful. Statements cannot be said or heard without evoking positive or negative emotions within us; therefore the words become statements which are negatively or positively charged. This also applies to statements you make or hear about yourself. These impact your physical, mental and or emotional state. When these statements are heard, stated out loud or silently to yourself, the brain hears them as literal memos so they become your reality as you ‘take them on’ and you own them. When you make them your own, you create a belief that becomes a part of your being and your soul. This workshop teaches you how to reverse the negative affects of these beliefs no matter how long you may have believed (owned) them.

Time: 1 hour
Cost: $25

To name a few, Myrrh, Frankincense, Galbanum, Sandalwood Myrtle, Cypress, and Cedarwood. Essential Oils have many uses and have been used for many centuries. The oils were so highly regarded in ancient times that they were presented to the Christ child upon his birth. The Bible scriptures cite medicinal, dietary and cosmetic uses of these oils.
