For A Fire Within

Come With Me On A Journey


To Joseph Oregon, in the Wallowa Mountains, the home of Chief Joseph. Windspirit Wellness Retreat is nestled in a pristine valley on the Scenic byway to the Snake River just outside Joseph.

Windspirit Medicine offers Wellness Retreats combining a whole body detox & cleansing program and a dozen healing treatments; using Universal Medicine and the wisdom of the ages to “Diagnose the human being instead of the disease”.

Wyakin is the Nez Perce word for steward or guardian, we are guardians of the land.  This sanctuary lived in my heart for decades as I gained my education and experience as a Doctor of Oriental Medicine, Auricular Medicine, Kinesiologogy, Master Bodyworker, Reflexologist, Nutritionist, and Energy Medicine Woman. Windspirit Medicine is a combination of knowledge in Western Medicine, Oriental Medicine, Auricular Medicine and Energy Medicine to help the person understand and unravel the patterns of dis-ease, to track the threads of emotions and learn the lifestyle that is the cure. Come stay at the Historic Cottage on Wyakin Ranch and let the land embrace you, the rhythm of the creek rock you and the spirit of this powerful place inspire you. Transform your health in just 1 week and change the way you see the world and the way you will live the rest of your life.

Hope to Heal, Windspirit of the Wallowas

***Notice. As of March 2020 my private practice, Windspirit Oriental Medicine,  closed for daily public treatments due to the pandemic.
