She is certified as an 9th generation Reiki Master after completing her training with top RMT Nicholas Harris in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
Asha has also been called to explore Shamanism in the last few years, as she feels it is an intuitive part of her being. She has worked under several Shamanic practitioners to deepen her knowledge and interest in this ancient healing method. Elements of Shamanism are utilized in her Reiki sessions, to obtain further guidance and insight for a client. This may include accessing spirit guides, ancestors, animal spirits, and more. Elements from the earth may also be incorporated such as fire, water, stones/crystals, feathers for clearing purposes, shells and more to calm one’s energy field.
Asha's experiences have led her to work with many populations, including geriatrics, pediatrics, and adolescents, in a variety of settings, including schools, clinics and in home treatment. Diagnoses worked with, but not limited to, have included: developmental delays, autism, ADHD, sensory processing disorder, generalized anxiety, depression, eating disorders, arthritis, pain, autoimmune diseases, traumatic brain injuries, stroke, cancer, genetic disorders, and neuromuscular diseases.
