Linda has a passion for holistic healing and natural living. Her family of 8 has not participated in the medical industry since 2006 except: once for stitches, one visit for metal removal from the eye, and required physicals for the kids for sports and camps. As they were raising their six children, Linda and her husband, Greg entered a gateway of self-development that led them on a sacred journey of healing and discovery of a better way of life.
Linda has a deep knowledge of the connection of the physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and electrical aspects of the human body which she feels called to share with others. We’re designed to heal ourselves. Her passion is to empower others to take responsibility for their own health. She walks along side each person, seeking to understand their needs, sharing insight, knowledge, healing and tools that they may use to accomplish their goals.
With a medical and homeopathic background as her foundation, Linda has studied and trained in the healing arts of kinesiology, reflexology, myofascial release, cranial sacra therapy and aromatherapy. She's a Certified Raindrop Technique Specialist, Healing Touch Practitioner, Licensed Spiritual Health Coach, MPS and Scar Release Practitioner, and Registered Yoga Teacher.
She opened her first healing center, the Natural Nook with Michelle Bekkala in Cokato, Minnesota in 2008.
Moving to sunny Colorado in 2010 and opening Olla Terve Healing and Yoga Studio in 2012 in Woodland Park, created an opportunity to expand her outreach to assist more people from all walks of life.
Adventurous and light-hearted, Linda brings joy and unconditional love to her clients and students in the studio, on the street and on the mat. Her love of freedom and compassion for all of humanity creates a fun, yet sacred and safe place for all to feel welcome and to have a sense of belonging. She feels honored to hold space and walk with her clients, students and community as they each discover the Light and Truth within themselves.
Linda enjoys spending time with her husband, Greg (who she’s been with since 1995), their six kids, family and friends from around the world. She loves yoga, spending time outside in nature, traveling, experiencing different cultures and listening to live music.
Certified Raindrop Technique Specialist (CRTS), trained by the Center for Aromatherapy Research and Education, and certified through the Natural Therapies Certification Board (NTCB). I have been performing the Raindrop Technique since 2007. The Raindrop Technique consists of applying Young Living Essential Oils to the spinal reflex point on the feet and back of the recipient using light effleurage and Vitaflex techniques. The purpose of the Raindrop Technique is to stimulate every organ, muscle and bone of the body at a cellular level through the oils, boosting the immune system, bringing the body into structural and electrical balance, and enabling the release of toxins or disease wherever they may be lodged-including those illnesses lodged in the mind and emotions. *
Healing Touch Practitioner in the Healing Touch Spiritual Ministry Program (HTSM). Healing Touch is a relaxing therapy that may help to restore and balance the body's energy.* It involves working in the electrical field surrounding the recipient's body to balance and restore the electrical field, and with permission, may involve laying-on of hands in an appropriate, non-invasive manner. Some Young Living Essential Oils are used during the course of each session.
Licensed Spiritual Health Coach (LSHC) through the Alliance of Christian Healers Licensing Board (ACHLB). A Licensed Spiritual Health Coach assists people with physical, emotional, mental, psychological (intuitive) and spiritual problems. This coaching is to help others heal themselves, not by telling them what to do, but by helping them through a process whereby they can become empowered to make their own decisions.
