Inspiration & education for healthy and sustainable living.


Hello all!

I hope you are all safe and doing well. 
As you know, the corona-virus that causes COVID 19 is spreading rapidly.
We are in an unprecedented situation that affects us all.
At this time, I will not be seeing clients in person for Amma therapy.
I have been doing my part to social distance and protect myself, my clients and my community.
I am a healthcare practitioner and I love my work and I believe there is a lot Asian medicine
can do to help, however, this not the time for touch.
Clara will be flying in on the Tuesday, and we will self quarantine her for the 14 days.
So the earliest I would be back for hands on treatment would be April 10th, in the best case scenario.
As the weeks progress, I will assess the risk as to whether or not I can return to treating.
I am still available and can still help!

During this time, I am offering phone and online consultations for $25 for 1/2 hour and $50 for 1 hour. Please, book these online through my square appointments.  I will keep you posted here on my website, on my FacebookInstagram, and via email.  

Learn something new!

I am still offering my classes online and available for mentoring or personalized teaching. 

Take care and let’s weather this storm! 

Thank you,


Online consultations are available for nutrition and Asian medicine assessment (of course I can’t do pulses online, but we can get a lot done). I have opened more time slots and temporarily reduced my rates to help us navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic. Appointments can be scheduled for 1/2 for $25 or 1 hour for $50 These appointments are booked via my square appointments. 


Allergies Class to be rescheduled

Hello folks! I’ve chosen to reschedule the Managing Seasonal Allergies class – there’s a bit of chaos in the world right now. I will have new dates up by the end of March. Be well.




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
