a good friend of mine, gloria ng, is a licensed and certified holistic healer (life coaching/counseling, body work (e.g. massage therapy), etc.) located in oakland, ca. she's looking to expand her clientele, so for those of you who are in or near the san francisco bay area and are looking for someone with her services, please look her up.
* for those of us who aren't bay area locals, she also provides life coaching/counseling sessions over the phone (also great for people whose schedules are too busy or erratic for more traditional sessions).
