What to Expect & a Bit About KeNT
Credentials and Experience
Epigenetics, Thoughts, and Emotions
Epigenetics is the branch of science that examines how external factors such as nutrition, stress levels, emotions, and habitual thoughts can influence the way our genes are expressed. These influences can be passed down to us from our ancestors.
Pioneers of epigenetics such as Dr. Candace Pert and Dr. Bruce Lipton have revolutionized the way we look at how cells in the body receive and process information, leading us to believe that it is not our genes and DNA that control our biology, but rather the energy from our thoughts, habits, and emotions that are the major influencers.
The Brain Simplified... An Interconnected Trio
The Brain Stem
The Brain Stem is the control center for involuntary body functions such as balance, blood pressure, breathing, facial sensations, hearing, heart rhythms and swallowing, and does not distinguish between past, present and future.
The Limbic System
The Limbic System, or Middle Brain, on the other hand, deals with emotions, memories, instincts, feeding, fighting and fleeing and is responsible for the body's physical and chemical responses to emotional stimuli. It stores memories as stories in silos of similarity, rather than chronological order.
Lastly, the Neocortex, or Higher Brain, is the only part of the brain able to differentiate between past, present and future, and creates new thoughts, solves problems, learns mathematics and languages.
When faced with a stressful situation, the Higher Brain will create thoughts in response, while the Limbic System and Brain Stem will react instinctively based on similar memories. Once the stressful event has passed, the Higher Brain must communicate to the Limbic System that it is safe, in order to bring the body back into balance.
Adverse Childhood Experiences & Post Traumatic Stress
No matter what age you are, traumatic experiences can leave a lasting impact on your life. Studies have shown that Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), such as abuse, neglect, and household dysfunction, can lead to chronic or toxic stress and have a range of adverse immediate and long-term effects.
This is because when faced with a perceived threat, the body goes into a fight-or-flight response, and if the threat persists, the body can't come back into balance. This constant activation of the limbic system and brain stem ends up creating negative habits and patterns.
Post-traumatic stress is a common consequence of ACEs, in which memories of similar experiences are stored together in the brain and recalled when faced with similar situations, leading to exaggerated reactions and emotions. This cycle can cause profound physical, mental, and emotional issues with no conscious control.
At Agape Therapeutic Health Services we work together, releasing the imbalances coming from your personal and/or generational traumas. Over time, the negative habits and patterns fall away, creating freedom from the debilitating effects of your memories and stories.

Frequently Asked Questions
To start, all new virtual and in-person clients receive a free 30-minute virtual Zoom Chat session. This helps clarify what to schedule for your initial paid session. Session pricing is based on the overall time spent in a session. Prices listed below are in Canadian dollars:
- 30 minutes - $65
- 45 minutes - $90
- 60 minutes - $110
- 75 minutes - $135
- 90 minutes - $160
- 105 minutes - $185
- 120 minutes - $210
I recommend scheduling longer sessions as it is easier to shorten a session, while the opposite is true when trying to lengthen one. I bill for the time spent rounded to the closest 15 minute increment. (eg. 65 minutes billed at $110)
I focus on chronic pain, which comes from physical and/or emotional sources. Clients are experiencing degrees of chronic pain arising from the negative impacts of adverse childhood experiences - both personal and/or generational.
Have you ever been thinking about someone and they then call you out of the blue? This is a common example showing how we're all energetically connected. During virtual sessions, I use intention for clearly tapping into a connection that's already present.
During the free chat/consultation, we'll review your history and determine what's most important for you to focus on. We'll then hopefully have some time to get started with a mini-session.
The Greek word, agápē (pronounced uh-GAH-pay), is a Greco-Christian term referring to unconditional love, the highest form of love or charity.
Within a therapeutic context, agape is the intentional response to promote well-being when confronted by that which generates ill-being.
Some experts think the conscious mind only makes up about 0.1% of your intelligence. The other 99.9% is the subconscious mind. The subconscious mind archives everything we experience in life. It's like a binary computer and can be asked “yes” or “no” questions.
Muscle testing determines answers from the subconscious mind by the physical response to things that are true or false. To illustrate, telling a lie creates a weak muscle test, whereas speaking the truth creates a strong muscle test. It's really that simple.
The physical body is pure energy and, given the right conditions, has an incredible ability to heal itself. Negative energies can become stuck or trapped because of any sort of life experience.
If they remain stuck, over time they can impair physical function and contribute to stress, trauma, sickness and even disease. In fact, most people live somewhere on a spectrum in this kind of state, suffering from it, but the good news is that this process is often reversible.
Releasing energetic imbalances is a powerful way to restore health to the body, by simply making the conditions right for it to re-balance itself.
Intuitive bodywork is using muscle testing to ask the body what it needs during any type of hands-on work. Often it's a mix of bodywork modalities that shift on the fly, as the body unwinds itself towards optimal homeostasis.
In a session, we focus on releasing the imbalances that are underlying or creating an issue. After the session, you can expect two things:
- An “integrative healing period” or a “physiological processing” which usually lasts from 1 to 3 days. Less than 20% of the time, there are processing symptoms such as minor emotional irritability or a little fatigue. Occasionally, some people experience more uncomfortable symptoms such as headache or nausea. You can make the processing period easier by getting extra sleep, drinking a lot of pure water, avoiding stressful situations, and practicing your regular self-care routine.
- Awareness of the habits associated with what we released. Coping mechanisms or survival skills are learned habits that run on autopilot. Our unhealthy habits can be unlearned and replaced with healthy ones. Some clients may feel subtle or dramatic changes right away, while others may need more release work before noticeable unwinding from unhealthy habits takes place. Each person is unique with varied life experiences, so the pace of healing is not exact or predictable. For greater insight, check out this article from James Clear.
No extended medical insurance covers what I do.
As a new client, you're asked to complete a confidential intake history. You're free to disclose as much or as little information as you wish. I hold all details in confidence and I can share nothing with anyone without your express written consent.
The short answer is no, as I'm not a registered medical or mental health professional any longer. The sessions provided are a co-creative experience where we tap into your body's inherent healing wisdom.
I strongly encourage you to stay connected with all of your traditional and alternative health practitioners when you're receiving sessions at Agape Therapeutic. No one practitioner or approach can address all aspects of who you are and what you're presenting with.
In my practice, there is no diagnosing or prescribing as I'm not a registered medical or mental health professional. So I encourage you to remain connected with all your traditional and alternative health practitioners.
A small percentage of clients receive sessions while paying a reduced or sliding scale fee. This allows them to move through particularly difficult points in their healing journey where their ability to work may be less than optimal. I often ask to receive a written or video testimonial from them in return.
The short answer is YES!
The longer answer is that chronic pain is often a complex, multilayered presentation. It is a physical, mental, and emotional mix. We use muscle testing to release imbalances that are creating the chronic pain presentation, one layer at a time.
Post Traumatic Stress symptoms range on a spectrum from mild to severe. Anyone with a trauma history will require a network of healthy support to assist in their healing journey. Energy medicine and intuitive bodywork are very helpful in easing the symptoms and releasing the underlying causes of Post Traumatic Stress.
This will depend upon what shows up with muscle testing. If your body wishes to receive Ortho-Bionomy them you're fully clothed. If your body wants a Swedish-style massage, then you're taking your clothes off. I cover you appropriately with a top sheet and we work together to ensure safety and security.
The short answer is YES but there are conditions.
- Children - I require a separate waiver to be signed and dated by a parent or guardian prior to receiving any free or paid sessions. Contact me for details.
- Animals - Sessions for animals happen away from my shared office space. Contact me to plan a session for your favorite fur baby.
I live and work in Vancouver, Canada and I'm subject to the Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA) and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). PIPA is a Province of British Columbia legislative act and the GDPR is a regulation in EU law. Both are concerned with data protection and privacy of personal information of clients, prospects, or employees.
I securely store your personal health information and session notes on Canadian servers and you can request the information to be erased at anytime.
