The focus of her work is to assist her clients in understanding the psycho-spiritual/emotional patterns responsible for the discomfort, disease, illness, and life crises that compromise the expression of their soul. She is skilled in the healing modalities of Swedish Massage, Reflexology, Acupressure, Therapeutic Touch, and Cranial Sacral Techniques, and she blends these modalities to assist the soul and the body in finding their natural state of balance.
Susan Rueppel, Ph.D., offers classes for individuals and private and business groups focused on how to understand themselves and others through the vehicle of personality to improve communications and create more fulfilling relationships. She has her own private medical intuitive practice, Energetic Wisdom, in Sacramento, California. In her soul-directed approach to intuitive readings, each client participates in their own healing as she shows them how to remove the energetic and psychological blocks that prevent the soul from moving forward on its evolutionary journey.
Melynda Ruckels, RN, Ph.D., is a Holistic Nurse and a Master of Self-Remembering. She earned her B.S.N. from Holy Names College in Oakland, California.
