Holistic Integration

Having integrated the art of relaxation and visualization while caring for her pre-operative and post-operative patients, she became acutely aware of the appropriateness to incorporate the mind, body and spirit in the healing process. The belief pattern of the subconscious mind, as well as stored emotions at the cellular level, require a healthy way to express and release in order to create the space for healing. Her experience convinced her that each one of us holds the key to better emotional, mental and physical well being. While working with patients experiencing a variety of life threatening illnesses, she continued on her path of holistic training.

Doreen co-founded and directed Complementary HealthCare Institute. This multi-disciplinary team of holistic practitioners was formed with the intention of providing the community with holistic services and educational programs for the integration of the mind, body and spirit.
