As a natural healer with 25 year of experience, and a Registered Acupuncturist, I provide each person with a healing experience to meet their own unique needs. My training includes: Classical and TCM Acupuncture, with two internships in China; CranioSacral Therapy, with advanced training in SomatoEmtoional Release and Pediatrics from the Upledger Institute; Scenar Therapy; Lymphatic Drainage; Touch For Health (Five Element Meridian Balance with no needles); and Reflexology Meridian Therapy. My gift is to be able to sense any disturbances at a cellular level and through a pulsing techniques help the cells and meridians release held tension, small increments at a time. The result is an overall drop into deeper and deeper levels of relaxation. It is in these deeper levels of relaxation that profound healing occurs.


As a Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine and with a Masters of Science in ecology, I am interested in applying a holistic approach to health and treatments using Chinese herbal medicine, acupuncture, tuina massage, medical qi gong, and more recently added training in Lymphatic Drainage, Heart Centred Therapy and Brain Therapy (Including Neonatal Reflexes Therapy) from the Chikley Institute.  I have been practicing CranioSacral Therapy for the past 23 years and received advance training in SomatoEmotional Release, Pediatrics,  and Visceral Manipulation from the Upledger Institute.

SPECIAL NOTE:  Animal Therapy with Rio, Luna, Princess (Golden Labs), and Bee (cat) maybe included in your treatment.  Please let us know if you do not wish this therapy.


Leni recently graduated from the 5-year doctorate program at the Academy of Classical Oriental Sciences where she received great mentorship from David and Laurie Knox during her practicum in 4th year. This relationship has been growing since and Leni discovered through David and Laurie how a deep connection to each of her patients needs to be established before true healing is able to occur.  more about Leni.
