Instructor & International Class Coordinator
Subtle Energy Researcher, Yoga Teacher 200 RYT, Certified Pranic Healer
Jess has a Bachelor's Degree in Health Sciences and became focused on studying alternative therapies in 2007 after a health crisis caused by prescribed drugs inspired her to research other options.

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

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.
