the first large school of Polarity Therapy, which
expanded to several locations along the West Coast.

Colorado, developing her own approach to healing
and conciousness. Her sensitivity to energy patterns
and fields allows her to track what is going on in
the client. When she gives a lecture-demonstration in
front of a class or conference audience, she interprets
the field patterns that are moving her hands so that
others can see the connection between our energy
and our thoughts.
