Helene was born and raised in Switzerland. Her parents were social workers and growing up in this caring environment, Helene developed an intuitive knowing and compassionate concern for others, which is definitely reflected in her bodywork practice today.

Her interest in science and the medical field first led her to study pharmacology, which developed into work as an assistant pharmacist. She had her first experience in alternative medicine when she took a Reiki workshop in 1991. In 1992, at the young age of 20 Helene left Switzerland and the comfort of her family for Santa Fe New Mexico. She had received a scholarship from the Nizhoni School for Global Consciousness where she had the honor of studying with Chris Griscom for two years. After two years she graduated with an Associate of Arts Degree, completing a program of Academic study and Spiritual development.

She continued her education attending the New Mexico School of Healing Arts and became a massage therapist in 1995. The same year she moved to Tucson and joined the Desert Institute to study Zen Shiatsu. During this time in Tucson she also completed a four month certification in Conscious Connective Breathing (Rebirthing) with Patricia Coyne. She graduated from the Desert Institute in 1996.

In 2018, Helene completed a four year program in Acupuncture and Asian bodywork, obtaining a Master’s Degree in Acupuncture and a National Certification for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.

Helene has created and maintained a successful business in Tucson, AZ  for 23 years. She has many long time clients who have been blessed by her gifts of healing and her special touch.  She is always evolving as a person and as a therapist, and inevitably her clients benefit from the richness of her life’s journey.
