How did a Research Psychologist (me) trained in the strictest behaviorist theories of Psychology and doing research in hospitals end up a Reiki Master (30 years) and Practitioner of Chinese medicine (20+ year) you ask?


It started while I was working with heart patients at Humana Hospital in Louisville KY where I was raising my three children. I  just felt like something other than having a great surgeon (my patients/subjects) had had coronary bypass surgery, was working in order for the person to heal. So I started to study energy medicine. First came Reiki. I became a Reiki Master and started to give both in person and distant Reiki treatments. Then, because I love to learn and thoroughly research my interests, I learned Axiatonal Alignment and then Colorpuncture. The Colorpuncture was interesting treatment-wise but I needed more theory. I needed to know WHY I was giving those treatments. 
Next step, Chinese medical school where I met my pulse diagnosis mentor and I fell in love with pulse diagnosis and the system of medicine called Traditional Chinese Medicine. That was more than 20 years ago and I have never turned back to my more “physical” modern medicine career. 
Removing the energetic patterns of trauma is one of my passions. You don’t have to suffer long after the trauma happens …. even pre-birth trauma, being born a premie, or the trauma of being born for adoption. Treating emotions (depression, anxiety), helping women get pregnant, and treating chronic illness are my other specialties. I am available to see in person in Denver and littleton CO and online everywhere! Covid and distance don’t have to prevent you from receiving the healthcare that you deserve because I offer Healthcare at Home. Contact me at
NOTE: WE LIKE TO GIVE BACK TO THE COMMUNITY so a % of all income goes to a local food bank and the Cat Care Society.

Chronic Headache Relief

"After getting a full work up from a neurolologist and being prescribed medications we were uncomfortable giving our child we were referred to Martha. What a life saver.
