About / Bio

 


Hello everyone! So nice to meet you! My name is Ronda. I hold a Ph.D. in Natural Health and I'm a Reiki Master Practitioner, Traditional Usui Style. My specialty is stress reduction with natural, medication-free techniques like Reiki and Intuitive Aromatherapy. I can teach you the basics of Holistic Health so you don't have to go through as much costly trial and error to find your best healthy lifestyle. Here is a short summary of my background but if you have any questions at all, please use the contact form on the right side of the page and ask away! That form is the fastest way to contact me to schedule a Distance Reiki or natural health tutorial.

I call them Tutorials instead of "consults" because "consult" sounds so business-like and formal. My style really is more like an educational but casual kitchen-table conversation. These tutorials are all about providing you with information and encouragement to live in the most vibrant, healthy way that you can.
