ABOUT ELIZABETH: Elizabeth Combs loves and is devoted to intuitive energy medicine, herbalism and plant medicine, yoga and the expansion of higher consciousness on the planet. She shares her gifts and skills with compassion and deep regard for her clients’ own innate wholeness.
Raised by a loving family in Winston-Salem NC, Elizabeth remembers her first experience of body/breath prayer: singing hymns at First Baptist Church in downtown Winston Salem. Born intuitive, she had an experience of interbeing among the sun, the grass, the soil, the water and herself that awakened in her a deep love for and curiosity about the beauty and mystery of all life on planet earth. Yes, it started in Sunday School with the grass growing in the Dixie cup!
A lifelong learner, Elizabeth has been a student of yoga and consciousness for 30+ years and has been teaching and coaching others for over 30 years. In the field of energy medicine, she is a Reiki Master and a Healing Touch Certified Practitioner and Mentor.
