Dr. Linda Berry

Chiropracter and Certified Clinical Nutritionist

415.847.3755


www.DrLindaBerry.com

Dr Linda Berry empowers you to transform distress into fuel to power your life and dreams. She knows how because at 24 years old she smashed through a windshield crushing her spine and was paralyzed from the waist down.

Before her dream life was shattered, Linda graduated from SUNY Binghamton with a BA in Theater Dance and was blessed to join a nationally-funded modern dance company, The American Dance Asylum.

Linda was a woman in motion dancing, choreographing, training in Karate, cross-country running, and teaching dance to gymnastics students. After a year of rehabilitation it was clear she could no longer perform in the world of dance, a world of leaps and pirouettes.

She chose to do what helped her regain her health, chiropractic and nutrition. Since then Dr Linda expanded her skills by becoming a meditation instructor, a Certified Clinical Nutritionist, and a Trauma Healing Specialist.

Dr Linda’s book Internal Cleansing has been in print for 23 years with a forward by Marin County’s own Elson Haas, MD Staying Healthy with the Seasons. Recognizing the negative effects of stress in herself and her patients, she created “The Inner Smile Trilogy” -- from the Taoist tradition -- for relaxation and rejuvenation.

 Dr Linda has been featured on ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox News.

 

Claudia Delman

Reiki Master

415.847.3755


www.nurturetransform.com

Claudia Delman is a Reiki Master, a flower essence practitioner and holds a Master of Public Health. After several decades of nonprofit work specializing in nutrition education (and winning a People’s Choice Award at a CDC Diabetes Conference), Claudia chose to follow her bliss and work directly to help people shift their energy and improve their health.

Reiki is the Universal Life Force Energy that flows through all living things. A Reiki session treats the person as a whole: body, mind and spirit. Reiki is very healing and comforting, giving the receiver feelings of tranquility, relaxation and wellbeing. It invokes the relaxation response to calm the nervous system and support our body’s healing mechanisms. Reiki’s mental, physical, emotional and spiritual healing effect is sub-physical and works on the bio-field (the body’s natural electromagnetic field or Chi – life force). It works through the same meridian system as acupuncture and along the body’s energy pathways boosting its natural ability to heal and restore.
