An accomplished Chinese Herbalist in her own right, Wanda believes that one is continually a student of Chinese Medical Studies and Martial Arts. In 2008, Wanda returned to Asia to further her studies at Dong Zhi Men Hospital, where she also gained further clinical experience treating Depression, Weight Management, Orthopedic Conditions, Immune Disorders, Neurological Disorders, Paralysis, and pain management from Trauma, Surgery, and Injury. She continued to work with Tom Bisio, teaching workshops in sports medicine and Bagua Zhang.
In 2009, Wanda completed additional training in Pediatrics, Wilderness Medicine and Infectious Diseases with the Global Alternative Healthcare Project (GAHP), becoming a member of the non-profit organization, which focused on bringing medical services to remote villages throughout the world. Wanda has journeyed and assisted in bringing medical care to the Navajo Indians in Arizona and also assisted with bringing medical supplies to the native people of San Marcos, Guatemala.
In 2010, always a lifelong lover of the beautiful string of islands in the Pacific, Wanda answered her soul’s desire to create a life for herself in Hawaii and a path to wellness for others. She formed Ahonui Healing Power Adventures- Kauai, with the goal of sharing her extensive knowledge in Chinese Medicine and Martial Arts with those on the path to healing themselves- in the most magical setting one could ever imagine- Kauai.
In 2011, Wanda became a board member with “Na Keiki O Ka Aina”, The Children of the Land, which focuses on promoting the Polynesian Culture by way of teaching it to all children of Kauai. A student herself, Wanda continues to learn the Polynesian culture by way of studying the art of Hula dancing with her teacher, Kumu Kalena. In addition, she has also taken a few classes in Hawaiian drumming and Poi / Fire Spinning, as well as Hawaiian Herbs.
Since moving to Kauai, Wanda founded “Tribal Kauai” which focuses on transformational journeys for women. She continues to host many customized retreats, and has resumed teaching Ba Gua Zhang and Zumba as well as offering TCM sessions to those interested in individualized TCM treatments. Wanda has also started a new series called “Awakened Hearts” which features those who have followed their heart and passion in an effort to encourage and inspire others to do the same.
In an effort to assist her patients back in CT and NYC, as well as those unable to venture to the beautiful island of Kauai, Wanda is now offering successful distant healing sessions.
Wanda offers office, distant and in-home treatments by appointment. She also offers community acupuncture, healing, sports medicine, qi gong and martial art workshops.
