Holistic Healing Modalities

Adolescent Therapy
Jin Shin Jyutsu

Jin Shin Jyutsu, translated as the “Art of the Creator through the person of compassion” is a gentle form of Japanese acupressure that seeks to restore balance to the body’s natural energy flow patterns. Illness, injury, and stress can cause energy to become disharmonized causing a wide variety of symptoms and ailments. By gently applying hands on different areas of the body in a specialized pattern, energy is stimulated to reawaken and move harmoniously through the energy pathways. Sessions generally last about an hour and are done over clothing. 

Vicki can instruct you in the self-application of Jin Shin Jyutsu for daily practice. This improves the impact of treatments and empowers clients to learn how to harmonize their own energy, relieve symptoms, and increase overall health and vitality.

To learn self-care, you can incorporate teaching into your individual sessions, or you can attend a 2 hour introductory workshop. For more in-depth study, a series of classes is offered. For pricing and class schedules in Sarasota, please contact Vicki directly.

Reiki - Usui Style (Master Level)

Usui Reiki is a Japanese healing art that allows universal life energy to flow to the recipient, harmonizing mind, body, and spirit. The life energy of Reiki is absorbed only where it is needed, and helps to restore balance and increase energy while promoting relaxation.

Energy Center (Chakra) Balancing 

The 7 energy centers (also known as “chakras “) in the body are distinct areas that start at the top of your head and end at the bottom of your spine. They regulate all parts of your bodily system, influencing everything from emotional processing to resistance to disease.


The practice of energy center balancing Vicki uses in her work is to start with an assessment of all 7 energy centers and determine their alignment and strength.  Then she works individually on each energy center sending Reiki healing to strengthen and balance the areas.  

Intuitive Healing  Sessions

What is Intuitive Healing?


Intuitive healing is a general term that describes the ability to gain information and knowledge about all aspects of yourself by connecting with spiritual guidance.  The intuitive healer is simply a conduit through which spiritual guidance can come through directly to you.  Through many years of working as an energy healer and counselor in the medical field, Vicki has gained an ability to listen and hear from a deeper, intuitive place where information flow is unobstructed.  This information is already within you and ready to be accessed.  


As an intuitive healer, Vicki's intention is  to bring light to you and to assist in opening channels to information, validation and empowerment . 

What can I expect from a session?


Sessions can be conducted in person, by zoom, or by telephone.   Sessions begin by taking a few moments of quiet time and allowing clients to shift their energy and attention to our session. Sessions open with an influx of guidance that reflects both how you are doing in the present time as well as information about important aspects of your life and healing.   Then you are free to ask questions if you’d like to and we enter into an open flow of conversation.  Areas that are often addressed by clients include healing and health concerns as well as  issues related to work, relationships and life purpose.  


Clients have commonly noted they feel very uplifted and empowered during and after sessions and that issues they had an “intuitive” feeling or “knowing” about are validated.  They often gain new insights about important aspects of their lives, including their relationships and personal healing journey.  From what clients say, this work allows an exploration of that which you hold deeply in your heart, and can have lasting and profound healing effects.

Vicki is a certified Lifestyle Educator and teaches her clients self-management skills. This may include basic nutrition, exercise programming, and stress management tools such as Jin Shin Jyutsu self-application, guided visualization and breathing exercises.
