About Gedalia

In my teens and as a younger adult I suffered from depression and a feeling of emptiness. I was looking for something but wasn’t sure what. I found myself running from one relationship, job, and place to another.

I spent a lot of my time improving myself from the outside- exercising, bodybuilding, swimming, and running.

I began to practice hatha yoga in the late 1980s and soon after got involved in Siddha Yoga Meditation.

By turning “within” I was drawn to paint, learn about holistic healing arts, and Ayurveda. I embraced daily self-care practices from Ayurveda and meditation for many years.

It was this connection to myself that began to transform my life from the inside out. Things I had struggled with no longer weighed me down. I had the tools to move beyond my emotions /beliefs that no longer served me. I knew I was much more than my body. My relationships improved and a renewed sense of joy began to permeate my life. I even joined an art studio where I painted with vibrant colors in pastel and acrylic. I spent time in nature, wrote articles and published a book.

I wanted to help others walk a path of healing.

I studied for a Naturopathic degree, attended a four-year school to study energy healing and human consciousness, and then studied Ayurveda in New Mexico and India with Dr. Vasant Lad, the holistic health pioneer who first brought the ancient medical practice of Ayurveda from India to the West in the late 1970s. I became certified in Marma point therapy, Ayurveda‚Äôs energy healing modality.

I enjoy sharing my intuitive gifts in sessions, teaching, writing, walking, cooking, and spending time with my family in nature.

I look forward to serving you in return to wholeness.

I work with women exclusively.
