Sandra became interested in Heilkunst Medicine while exploring alternative treatments for her son with autism. He became a patient of Heilkunst in 2003, and his whole family followed suit within the year. Now an outgoing young adult, he inspires all who meet him with his compassion, work ethic and charm – for much of which his family has Heilkunst to thank.
Through the life-changing health benefits that both she and her son experienced, Sandra decided to study Heilkunst as well. She commenced her studies in 2005 and graduated in 2011. She also holds a Master of Arts degree in Canadian History and a second Masters degree in Museum Studies, both from the University of Toronto. She has worked for over 30 years as a museum curator, heritage consultant and historian.
Sandra was born in Edmonton, grew up there as well as in Winnipeg, and has lived in Calgary since 1991. Together with her husband, she has been blessed with two children, an adult daughter and her son, who have been her greatest teachers.
She is particularly interested in treating children with autism along with their families, and in exploring the resonance in the mother-child dyad. She also has an abiding interest in women’s health issues and in helping all people improve their health and sense of well-being through this dynamic system of medicine.
