Wanda is the founder of Natural Therapies Continuing Education. She was a licensed massage therapist from June 2002 until she retired her license December 2017. She opened Natural Therapies as a full time massage establishment in Murfreesboro, TN in August 2004. Her interest in energy work and Eastern modalities led to a certification in Ashiatsu. She is a Reiki Master/Teacher and certified Qigong instructor. Wanda firmly believes in "Give a child a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach him to fish and you feed him for a lifetime" For this reason, she became a Massage Therapy Instructor at a local career college, where she taught from March 2009 until March 2013. As a massage therapy instructor she taught Anatomy, Physiology, Kinesiology, Pathology, Business and Ethics. In addition, she worked with hands-on massage and bodywork assessment, theory and application. Wanda acquired approval on both the State and National level as a Continuing Education Provider in 2010.
Due to changes at the NCBTMB, Reiki classes through Natural Therapies CE will no longer be awarded CE hours. All of the class information is being left on the website for information and contact purposes only. Please feel free to contact Ara if you are interested in a session or attending a Reiki class even though there will be no CEs. Ara Simons
Ara's first Reiki session in 1998 was amazing. That experience inspired her to continue treatment, and over time, she was drawn to learn how to access Reiki healing energy and share it with others.
Ara's path has included learning about many holistic healing modalities. She began her own Energy healing practice in Murfreesboro in 2015 at Synergy HolisticWellness Spa.
Ara received Reiki Master/Teacher certification from two different Reiki Masters. Reiki helped her discover that her life purpose is healing and teaching others. Her experience as a student supported the development of the classes she now offers for all levels of Reiki certification.
Ara believes the Universal Life Force Energy flows through every aspect of our Being, vibrating in the molecules of our body, moving through our mind as thought, and shimmering in our heart as the source of our inner power.
