Anna’s passion for holistic health first started when Anna attended nursing school, where she observed a tendency to focus on symptoms, rather than the causes, of illness. Often, this led to people taking prescription drug after prescription drug in an effort to treat the first prescription drug’s side effects. Over time, this resulted in progressively deteriorating health. Anna believed there had to be a better way to help people heal.
From childhood, Anna had suffered from a number of chronic illnesses, including thyroid dysfunction, hormonal imbalances, and digestive issues. After finding little relief using traditional medical methods, Anna sought out alternative healthcare professionals for help. Her life was radically changed when she was able to fully heal from all of her chronic illnesses.
Amazed at the outcome and healing she experienced, Anna started studying a wide variety of natural healing techniques and applying best practices in her own life and in her family’s. Just a few of the techniques she’s studied include: Feldenkrais, Colorpuncture, CranioSacral Therapy, Health Kinesiology, Educational Kinesiology, Touch for Health, Energy Psychology Techniques, NeuroMuscular Techniques, NeuralStructural Techniques, Jones Strain/Counter-Strain, and Masgutova Neuro-sensory-motor Reflex Integration.
Anna’s passion for researching and helping people led her to develop specific techniques to facilitate physical, emotional, and mental stress-relief. Friends started seeking Anna’s input on illnesses they were experiencing. Soon, friends were referring friends and family members for natural healing help. In 1994, Anna formalized her work under Integration Kinesiology, as an alternative healthcare business that uses the best-of effective alternative healthcare techniques.
In the last 20 years, hundreds of clients, from a variety of backgrounds and lifestyles, have experienced measurable and remarkable improvements in physical, mental, and emotional health through IK.
