Raised in the mountainous region of Chamonix, France, she left her native homeland at the age of seventeen to travel the world before settling in the United States. Oriental Medicine, Energy Medicine, and Human Consciousness have been her dedication and passion for the last 33 years.

She graduated as a Doctor of Oriental Medicine from the Institute of Oriental Medicine in China in 1988. For twenty years she operated a successful holistic clinic in Mill Valley, California where the unique approach to health and wellness was so sought after, that readers of San Francisco Focus Magazine voted her one of the “Top Alternative Medical Doctors” in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her joy and passion for healing, teaching, and assisting people in cultivating their own inner mastery is guided by her love for the truth and reverence for both the light and the shadow in each person life’s journey.

LAURA MOORHEAD, CST-D, License: #MAT-6230
Laura has been practicing bodywork since 1993, specializing exclusively in CranioSacral Therapy for the last 8 years. Her interest in bodywork began in 1991 when she was sent some information about Aromatherapy. She was quickly fascinated and took a year-long training to become an Aromatherapist. Then she realized that she needed a license in order to practice. Her pursuit of that led her into a passionate exploration and practice of bodywork that has lasted for twenty years. About 6 years ago, her then 6-year-old daughter fell from a tree and suffered a closed head concussion. The doctors sent her home with no treatment. But she was waking each night with nightmares and during the day she was constantly bumping into things. Laura called a friend who was a CranioSacral therapist and she came over and gave her daughter a session in the middle of the afternoon. Her daughter fell asleep and slept peacefully through the rest of the day and into the next morning. When she awoke, all the symptoms were gone. Laura realized it was time to specialize in this amazing therapy, and quickly became trained to do so.
CST addresses the body at its core, allowing it to release deeply held restrictions in a way that is often not possible with other forms of bodywork. The work continues to unfold as Laura deepens her ability to listen.
