“I believe our world is starved of nurture and compassionate care. Within the deepest part of my heart and soul, I believe that kindhearted human touch can heal the deepest wounds. If I wish to change this world, it should start with me. So I have made it my mission to make this compassionate therapy available to everyone.”
