From an early age, Margaret wanted to help people feel better. She was introduced to Reiki in 1994 and became a Reiki Master in 1995 under the guidance and Mastery of Houston-based Reiki Master, Julia Carroll. Margaret worked as a Reiki practitioner for several years teaching Reiki 1 and 2 along with holding weekly Reiki clinics in her home. She then chose to study Polarity Therapy at the Polarity Realization Institute in Ipswich, MA. This school later became Spa Tech Institute.
Combining both body work and knowledge of the energetic systems, Margaret completed the 660 hour Polarity career program in early 2002. She then went on to study the RYSE (Realizing Your Sublime Energies) program offered at Spa Tech becoming a certified RYSE level 3 Practitioner in 2004. She taught Polarity at the school for 2 years and then decided to enroll in their 650 hour Therapeutic Massage program. While in this course of study, she learned Cranial Sacral work with The Upledger Institute, taking two levels of Cranial Sacral and a level one Somatic Emotional Release workshop.
In June 2011, Margaret enrolled in yogaspirit Studios 200 hour teacher training with Kim Valeri. She works one on one with clients and students assisting them in gaining flexibility and strength. This style of gentle yoga is beneficial for people with arthritic joints.
In the fall of 2012, Margaret was drawn to the natural medicine of Ayurveda. She completed a 50 hour Panchakarma Technician Certification program with Dr. Suhas Kshirsagar, BAMS, MD and Dr. Manisha Kshirsagar, BAMS, LMT. This experience inspired Margaret to enroll in Kerala Ayurveda Academy’s 500 hour Ayurvedic Wellness Counselor program, which she completed in 2013.
