About Me

Having grown up in Switzerland and studied in Germany, my interests soon led me to Asian countries and Chinese culture. As a result, I spent 10 years of my adult life living in Asia. During my years as a language teacher in both Asia and Europe, I experienced working with students of (almost) all ages, which I thoroughly enjoyed.

After becoming the mother of two children, I felt more and more drawn towards activities and treatments (initially as a client) which deal with the invisible realm of the mind-body connection. Although this realm is in itself invisible, the obvious benefits of practicing Qi Gong, for example, led me to eventually become a teacher in this art of moving meditation in 2012. This was soon followed by the study of Jin Shin Jyutsu® as well as an integrated training in Sound Therapy. Training in Access Bars® and the Reflexology Association of Canada's (RAC) Foot Reflexlogy program (RCRT certified) followed and proved to be additional pieces in the forever continuing jigsaw puzzle of how to best serve my clients. And the learning continues! Every year I attend different classes and workshops to deepen my understanding and fine-tune my listening skills of both, my fingers and my intuition. Thus it may not come as a surprise that I have signed up for Jin Shin Jyutsu for your Animal Companion classes as well as Acutonics level 1, which utilizes different vibrational frequencies of tuning forks both on and off the body for harmonizing energy. Both of these I was fortunate to complete during the past few difficult years and integrate into my practice to different degrees.

Health Flows was established in Kelowna in 2015, with a practice in beautiful Magic Estates, only ten minutes from downtown Kelowna. In 2021 there was an invitation from life, which I followed, thus uprooting my practice as well as my family and moving to the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island where I continue to offer my services.
I feel honoured to have assisted numerous friends and clients on their journey to increased health and wellbeing through my classes and treatments. I am looking forward to possibly getting the opportunity in assisting you or your family and friends on the road to more balance and ease in your life!

Testimonial: "Kelowna is very fortunate to have a healer such as Jolanda Himmelstein. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with, and experience, her various healing modalities. At the time I saw Jolanda I was going through a lot of shifts in my life, and her sessions gently assisted me in getting to the other side of this difficult time. After a series of foot reflexology, sound healing and Jin Shin Jyutsu sessions, I felt a profound shift in my emotional, physical and energetic wellbeing. Patterns and blockages I had been carrying for a long time lifted, and the reflexology brought a new level of body awareness.
Jolanda is very professional, knowledgeable, intuitive and gentle. She was able to address the problem and at the same time let go and allow the sessions to gently unfold as needed. I trust her, and I am grateful for all the changes she has helped me to bring into my life.
