Online Consultations

I offer online consultations  in Asian Assessment and Holistic Nutritional Consultation using Zoom or other online conference platform. Session are available Tuesday – Fridays and are scheduled for 1 hour or 1/2 for followups.

View and book these appointments here. 

I will continue to closely monitor the spread of COV-19 and will continue to follow local and national guidelines for social distancing. When it is safe to offer hands-on treatments again, I will be at a new location and I will let you know.

When I first met April, I had severe numbness in my left arm.  I had had a MRI, chiropractics, and traditional massage without any lasting relief.  April’s skill with Amma techniques and honest, questioning style, not only eliminated the numbness in one treatment but also redirected my lifelong path toward wellness.  If you are willing to listen and truly reflect, April offers more than a 50 minute treatment. Whenever I follow the insight gained from the treatment table, I find that my life improves in ways I didn’t expect.

My background is education.  I find April to be an outstanding educator.  She has depth to her knowledge which allows her to be open to discussion and questions.  April is a constant student. Her style nicely combines teacher and student to create a rewarding learning environment.  I look forward to taking more classes from her in the future.   – J.W. 

I have been a client of Pulse Holistic Health and April’s for many years.  I have been extremely happy with the care I receive. Amma has helped me greatly with my back problems…I always feel better after a treatment. They have wonderful information on dietary and methods for healing.  The therapists at Pulse are excellent and very knowledgeable and they go out of their way to be helpful. Last winter I fell and hurt my back. I called and someone saw me within an hour. I would recommend Pulse to anyone. –M. F.

I have worked with April for a number of years, first as an instructor in my Amma program and later for Asian body work  treatments and as a wholistic nutrition consultant. This work has opened many new vistas. I am trained as a mental health professional. My work with April added a new dimension to my thinking and life work. I’d highly recommend using April’s services to anyone seeking to improve health which improves every other aspect of life in today’s world.  – G. B

April is the first health practitioner to ever ask me to further explore the story of my pain. When I opened up about my journey with pain, she listened intently then asked questions. Each session I have with April, she shifts her CM formula recommendation based on the new understanding of my body she has from what she has understood through listening to my story, my emotions, and my body. She asks questions, stays curious, and makes me feel deeply cared for. Further, the value April provides moves beyond the patient/practitioner role and into the teacher/student role. She provides this because she knows I truly want to learn and understand. I am so filled with gratitude that my path has led me to Pulse and April. I highly recommend their services to any one needing support in their body and mind. In gratitude, AW

April is the first health practitioner

Hello April!

I’m haunted in the middle of the night on and off that I never thanked you for getting back to me so quickly when I reached out to you for help with night restlessness. I don’t know how I didn’t get to reply right then but when I don’t, life starts to get in my way of remembering things and so much falls through the cracks.
I truly am grateful for all you’ve shared with me, taught me and the healing you’ve given to me and my family. I hope you are well and enjoying summer days and beautiful nights.
With love and gratitude,
DP ❤
