About Brenda:

Brenda's interest in healing began early in her life. She left her real estate career to pursue her interest in healing and to further understand that which she always knew intuitively. Attending the Upledger Institute courses provided her with the knowledge she sought for and then went on further advancing her skills and knowledge in Chinese Acupressure, Neuromuscular Therapy, Cranio Sacral Therapy, Viceral Manipulation, Lymphatic Drainage, Process Acupressure and Zero Balancing, Thought Field Therapy, Polarity Therapy, Zero Balancing, Integrative Energy Techniques to name a few. Brenda’s work also reaches into the realm of esoteric studies from which have revealed to her a deeper understanding of the human body/mind/energy matrix system. In addition, Brenda embraces within her work, her continual studies of quantum physics and scientific based/spiritual meditation practices.

As a strong intuitive, Brenda has developed the ability to access information within the emotional/energetic matrix of her clients thereby helping to target the cause of the discomfort while applying all her learned and what comes natural to her talents creating a space for healing to come forth.

Brenda owned and operated her own private practice for 3 years, then expanded into a fully operational boutique year round day spa named La Quinta Healing Arts, Inc. formerly located in the Village of Old Town La Quinta, for approximately 11 years. Brenda has been offering body work services for approximately 19 years.

Brenda is also a certified Yoga Instructor and Ayurveda Wellness Coach.

Brenda currently offers her Medical Massage practice in her personal massage/yoga studio. 421 Court Street, Reno, Nevada, 89501

Her beliefs are to follow the path with least resistance and allow ones intuition to guide us down the river of life, finding that which we seek when we are flowing with the current of life. It's moving, question is are we holding onto branches and hindering our journey with outmoded beliefs and feelings of unworthiness? or are we surrendering and having faith we are on the right "river" and to know our worthiness is beyond measure. Follow your bliss follow the path with least resistance.

Taking this belief one step further, she has opened herself to offering personal services as an intuitive Spiritual Wellness/Ayurveda/Yoga Support Coach.

CranioSacral Therapy:

A very gentle and effective holographic approach at looking at the system as a whole. CST is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system - comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord, to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.

Process Acupressure:

An integrative body/mind/soul approach that combines traditional acupressure techniques to help reclaim energetic balance in their bodies, which promotes better health.

Lymph Drainage Therapy:

Detecting and through the process of gentle touch, the specific rhythm, direction, depth and quality of the lymph alternate pathways are encouraged for draining body-fluid stagnations.

Visceral Manipulation:

A gentle hands-on therapy that works through the body's visceral system (the heart, liver, intestines and other internal organs) to locate and alleviate these abnormal points of tension throughout the body.

Integrative Energy Techniques:

During an energy session, Quantum coherence emerges, and is isolated in brain microtubules until a threshold related to quantum gravity is released.
