Working with abused children for a number of years, serving as an active board member with NYS Police and the Child Sexual Assault Task Force, alterative health education was the next step. A licensed professional practicing Alternative Health & Wellness since 1993 Mary brings her superior education and experience to the Islands of the Lowcountry Serving Kiawah & Seabrook with our Island Studio, our newest Mt. Pleasant Studio and now Historic Downtown Charleston at MUSC

Mary will complete her Doctorate in Oriental Medicine by Fall 2012, expanding alternative therapies into a broader and three dimentional approach that considers your physical, psychological and chemical well being. This is achieved through psychotherapy, movement, massage, water and other alternative therapies such as sound, aroma and finally, herbal and nutritional counseling, and acupuncture considering Ayuraveda, India's ancient medicine based on your personality type, brain chemistry or "Dosha", restoring your life to balance.

Mary introduces Yoga as an effective form of exercise and stimulation for those coping with various stages and challenges of Alzheimers. She's
currently working with the participants on John's Island and will be training many volunteers so Yoga may become part of every respite program
here in the Greater Charleston area. Our St. John's Firefighters are learning to strengthen their bodies and emotions while relieving stress through the power of Yoga and movement therapy. Soon Yoga will come into the schools of John's Island as Mary promotes this medium as an effective tool to empower the students in body and mind while strenghtening emotions.
Mary is also very active in fundraising events with a focus of proceeds supporting Single Women of all ages of the Greater Charleston area who may
be struggling in various ways with little support. Wellness services will be provided for these women in an effort to infuse, inspire, restore and empower each and every "Single" Woman so she may become stronger and more resilient in mind, body & spirit ... and rise above her temporary challenges.
