Kevin brings passion, expertise, and a great sense of humor to his practice. He is also a Reiki Grand Master and Spring Forest Qigong Master Healer and a Pranic Practioner. Kevin is a passionate practitioner of Craniosacral Therapy. Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on healing method of unblocking energy from the top of your head all the way down your spine to your tail bone. It supports you in feeling better and more alive.
Kevin has most recently learned a technique called Bowen Therapy. Bowen Therapy helps to release muscle tension by strumming the muscles and meridians like a Guitar string.
Kevin has taught several classes on meditation, Heal Your Heart and the newest addition is Mind Body Spirit Transformation. Kevin leads Qigong classes at Meredith and Wesley Acres. Kevin has also been instrumental in organizing classes for MCKS Pranic Healing in the Des Moines area.
Kevin has been on a life long search to not only help his own growth but that of others. Kevin invited the Buddha Relics, (Loving Kindness Tour), to Des Moines in both 2012 and 2014. Through the help of many volunteers it was attended by more people than in other city in North America with almost 7,000 people attending the 2 1/2 day event in 2012 and we were the only city in the US to get to host the event for Ten days in 2014. People are still talking about these events today.
