“Pain that is not transformed will be transmitted.”
— Richard Rohr

Our Philosophy

Each person has a natural, infinite inner strength that transforms pain & supports their physical, mental, & spiritual health. Negative life events cause this power to become blocked which leads to dissatisfaction & dis-ease. Our Victoria therapists empower clients to re-access the strength in their hearts so that they can live a joyful life with balance, connection & vitality.


We will work with you to create a customized therapy approach to best fit your needs & goals.

“When you close your heart or close your mind, you hide in the darkness within you. There is no light. There is no energy. There is nothing flowing. The energy is still there but it can’t get in…That is what it means to be “blocked”. That is why you have no energy when you’re depressed”
— Michael Singer
