Jillian graduated from the University of Delaware in 2010 with a bachelor's degree nursing. Her focus in college was Holistic Nursing, a practice that integrates nursing knowledge, theories, expertise and intuition to guide nurses in becoming therapeutic partners with people in their care. Jillian's experience includes practicing as a Registered Nurse in the fields of general medicine and mental health, and also as a private wellness practitioner in her practice in San Diego, CA.

Jillian discovered Biofield Tuning (then, sound balancing) in April 2011 when she received her first session by founder and innovator, Eileen McKusick. She was impressed by the grounded theory of the biofield and Eileen’s Biofield Anatomy Hypothesis. Three years later she became a certified practitioner and began apprenticing with Eileen. She spent over 200 hours observing and assisting Eileen’s classes before she began to teach with Eileen. She is now the Director of Training and Lead Teacher of the Biofield Tuning organization. She enjoys seeing her clients and students access their potential with this science-based modality.

The rush of today’s lifestyle contributes to the loss of harmonic rhythm and balance within our bodily systems. Biofield Tuning is an elegant and efficient non-medical therapeutic method that uses tuning forks to access and align dissonances in the human biomagnetic field.

Claudia’s studies and training in Biofield Tuning with Eileen McKusick began in 2014. As a practitioner in this field, Claudia aligns with the notion that having a coherently aligned biomagnetic field, gives one the freedom to live a healthier lifestyle. Using attention and intention throughout the Biofield Tuning process, she has worked with clients, friends & family members to achieve therapeutic relief through sound.

From soil to sound, Marielle has been learning to support people on their healing path since she moved to Vermont more than ten years ago.

She earned a Bachelor of Science in Ecological Agriculture at the University of Vermont, where she learned how important it is to grow food using regenerative practices. Her journey continued on several organic farms where her passion for medicinal herbs bloomed. She studied herbalism with the Gaia School of Healing for two years and greatly enjoys sharing and growing our green allies. Her interest in holistic healing led her to complete a 200 hour vinyasa yoga teacher training and become certified in permaculture design along the way, and she is currently apprenticing with a shamanic healer in northern Vermont.

Marielle found Biofield Tuning in 2017 and was elated by the level of clarity she experienced after receiving her first session. She then studied with Eileen to become an advanced practitioner and teacher.. As an Bioield Tuning instructor she looks forward to bringing coherence to classrooms across the country.

Lori is a Registered Nurse, with many years of varied experience, practicing with a holistic approach that encompasses the whole person - body, mind, and spirit - in all things. She has found Biofield Tuning to be an easy and elegant holistic modality that facilitates well-being and lasting change.

By dismantling the concepts, beliefs and thoughts that hold us victim, we can reorganize those energy patterns into fuel that inspires and empowers us to be the most vibrant expression of wellness. Through the physics principle of harmonics, the body can actually release itself from dis-ease and become reconnected with the eternal presence, blueprint of well-being, and full human potential that is within each of us.

Jess received a bachelor’s degree in health sciences in 2005. Soon after, a health crisis caused by pharmaceutical drugs inspired her to research alternative medicine. After coming to the realization that healing has three interrelated parts: physical, emotional and spiritual, she began a lifelong journey studying the healing arts – energy healing, energy medicine, yoga, nutrition, and Ayurveda.

She found Biofield Tuning while she was working as a Subtle Energy Researcher in San Diego, studying the effects of energy healing on the biofield and body. She was a client of Biofield Tuning first, but after witnessing how effective and efficient it was in her own body, she became a Biofield Tuning Practitioner and later one of the first Biofield Tuning Instructors. ​

Jess’s home base is San Diego; however, as a student of life, she enjoys learning about the healing arts from the source; you can find her studying yoga in India or meditation in Indonesia.
