Spring 2019 sees lots of different activities geared to provide holistic support.

On April 1st - and this is no April fool's prank! - you can go to the downtown library (upstairs there is  workshop room to the left) from 12noon to 1pm and check out our INTERACTIVE INTRODUCTION TO HEALTH IS IN YOUR HANDS. Why not treat yourself to a smorgasbord of pleasant, bite-sized health-enhancing offerings...? Cudos to BWB Okanagan  for hosting!

On the weekend of April 12-14 you can find us at the Balance Wellbeing Show in the Kanata Hotel (next to Canadian Tire) where we can meet in person. Lots of interesting people will be there, speakers, workshops and tables galore!

May (3) 4-5 is a (re-)treat not to be missed!!! Mindful Empowerment Retreat for Women at Sparkling Hill (sorry guys, you are missing out this time). Four women will contribute to an unforgetable weekend with workshops, good food, spectacular views, not to mention the spa for those who decide to book a room at the resort. Check out the webpage:

I invite you to join our HEALTHY COMBO classes starting April 16th at the ECCO Centre (click the classes tab for details) or at least one of the classes, QI GONG or WELLNESS@ YOUR FINGERTIPS. Come on, you could give your body-mind a little break. Why not on Tuesdays mid day?

Furthermore, our popular monthly SOUND MEDITATIONS will continue all the way through June (see classes tab as well). Warning: no sound meditations will be offered in July and August.

Last, but not least, the practice is running as usual, with all sorts of treatments available (and combinations as well!) and flexible hours for clients with different schedules. Let's close for today with a client's testimonial:
"After the flow treatment I had with you I went to the chiropractor to help with my back pain. I noticed that the adjustments were easier and more effective than usual." W.M. Kelowna

Happy 2019 everyone! I hope this will be a year of lots of liberating shifts and full of love and joy!

You might feel like joining us for our free event on World Sound Healing Day on Thursday, February 14th from 11:45 to 12:05 in Waterfront Park (behind the dolphins), Kelowna, near the Island Stage. We will allow our minds to quiet down while experiencing the sounds of singing bowls, chimes and other sound tools to prepare for our toning of "AH", encoded with the energy of love and compassion for our beloved Mother Earth/Gaia and its waters. Together with thousands of people throughout the planet we will be engaging in a sonic valentine with the intention of raising the consciousness of all living beings.

For those who resonate with sound healing or meditation, you can have both! We will continue to offer monthly Sound Meditations on Fridays, January 18th, February 22nd, March 29th (further dates to be determined). For further details, please click the 'classes' tab. Please note that due to popularity the Sound Meditations will no longer be held at the practice in Magic Estates, but at the ECCO centre on Springfield Rd., Kelowna.

The Health Flows holistic practice will be open to scheduling treatments as before. We saw a need to adjust the pricing for 2019 in two ways. Firstly, we received requests for discounted fees for seniors as well as children and youth. We are happy to let you know that we could accommodate those inquiries. We would also like to point out that we are still able to assist the financially less fortunate thanks to the funds in our pay-it-forward box. Secondly, we noticed that no one signed up for extra long treatments; as it turned out, regular treatments just tended to be stretched longer. In order to find a healthy balance for everyone involved, we saw the need to raise our fees slightly (for new pricing click 'fees' tab).  However, we will honour last year's pricing for our existing clients until Chinese New Year on February 5th.

Looking forward to reconnecting with all of you whose paths have crossed mine before as well as meeting all you fascinating human beings whom I will encounter in this exciting year of 2019!
Warmly, Jolanda

Welcome to Health Flows!

Fall is fast approaching and with it new classes and workshops. Once again I will offer a Qi Gong class for the general public through the City of Kelowna (Activity and Program Guide, page 40) and, again, it will be right downtown at the Rotary Centre of the Arts (RCA). It will be a lunchtime class on Tuesdays, noon to 12:50. I hope to see some of you there :)

Jolanda, on the right of the frame, plays the smaller crystal soundbowl in the middle of frame. A larger soundbowl sits on the left of the frame.

In addition to that, Health Flows will offer a Sound Meditation every first Thursday/month from October to December from 7pm to 8:30pm. The evenings will offer a well balanced combination of sound baths with Tibetan and crystal singing bowls as well as a plethora of other sound tools allowing for profound relaxation and a guided meditation deepening our spiritual awareness and understanding.

Finally I would like to point out that clients who feel the need to bring about major change in their life do have the possibility to sign up for a week long intensive, comprising of ten treatments in one week. A one week intensive is being offered at the highly attractive rate of only $500.

Welcome to Health Flows!

A lot has happened since the last update and I would like to apologize to everyone for not having been able to update my webpage until today (with help - thank you so much, Casey!)

First and foremost, there is an exciting opportunity for anyone looking to book a  super powerful Jin Shin Jyutsu treatment in the next little while until the end of June! We now have two Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioners here in Kelowna and you could experience both working on you at the same time, as long as you request that when booking your treatment. Frank Tanguay has received his certification recently and will be happy to be working alongside me supporting you in your journey to more physical, emotional and mental balance. If you would like to read up on my facebook page what Stacey experienced after my impromtu Jin Shin Jyutsu treatment on a van in Mexico, please read her post on my facebook timeline from February 13. Check out Jolanda Himmelstein.

Secondly, Sound Healing has been requested more often in the past few months, which led to my starting to blend Jin Shin Jyutsu with healing sounds - a very happy marriage of these two modalities. Again, you will be the one deciding whether you'd like to choose that or not.

Sound Meditation will also be part of the upcoming Mindful Women Kelowna - Women's Meditation on Tuesday May 15 from 7-9pm at the Rutland Centennial Hall in Kelowna. If you'd like to enjoy the experience of three group meditations, two guided meditations and the sound meditation which I will contribute, please secure your ticket at

Last but not least I would like to share with you that I am wrapping up my case studies in foot reflexology during the month of May and will be available as a certified reflexolgist once I pass my exam some time in June.

I truly look forward to supporting you on your journey whenever you are ready to reach out to me.

warmly, Jolanda

Happy fall, everyone!
The leaves are golden and beautifully red and Health Flows has a gift for everyone, as this past week we started a new tradition:
During the week of your birthday we gift you with one free treatment of your choice! This automatically applies to all existing clients. For the new clients, all you have to do is buy at least one treatment (or gift certificate) to become a client - and then it's "happy birthday to you!" too.
How does it get any better than this?
Looking forward to celebrating your birthday with you in a health-enhancing way!

Here is just a quick heads up regarding more classes in the fall. (Please be patient as I will only add these to my classes calendar in September as I am in the midst of getting ready for the big trip to Europe.)
Health Flows will be offering Qi Gong Inspired Art at tidal ELEMENTS healing arts studio in Vernon on Saturday, September 23rd from 10am to 1pm and once more on Friday, October 20th from 6 to 9pm. Canvas and paint will be provided and are included in the price of $60 for each class. You can find more details on Eventbrite where I have posted this class for easy registration.
I am signing off wishing you a wonderful summer!

Happy summer, everyone!
June has been a very busy month. Health Flows stepped out more into the community and participated in the Creative Ageing Day at the Rotary Centre for the Arts as well as at the Holistic Market at the Laurel Packinghouse. I am happy to report that the Pay It Forward Box received $50 in June, $10 being from my son who said he didn't need the money for mowing my lawn. Thank you, Fabian!
Health Flows will only offer services from July 12th to 22nd this summer. A camping trip to the Rockies and a longer trip to Europe where my sister is getting married are keeping me out of town for most of July and all of August. Treatments and classes will resume in September.
I am wishing everybody a terrific summer and look forward to seeing you (again) in the fall!
