Dr. Brooke grew up in a Health and Wellness Industry. Her mother, was the creator and owner of award-winning lifestyle spas. The environment was rich with Eastern philosophy and whole body healing approaches to health. Dr. Brooke's Ailments were addressed with a gentle integrative approach, which educated her on the body’s amazing capabilities of healing. Brooke found in passing that Eastern Medicine and/or an Integrative approach to medicine in our Western society was foreign to a lot of Americans. With her passion for connecting the mind, body and spirit to medicine, Brooke knew her calling was to become a Doctor of Oriental Medicine.
Before the age of 20, Brooke attended school for Massage Therapy, Esthetics and Cosmetology and received her undergrad in Neuromuscular and Sports Therapy. She knew these practices to be very synergistic with, and supportive of, the art of Chinese Medicine.
Dr. Brooke studied under the preeminent masters of Classical Chinese Medicine, attending both Pacific College of Oriental Medicine and Florida College of Integrative Medicine. These unique and rigorous medical programs are highly respected, consisting of thousands of hours of Acupuncture, Herbology and Biomedical course work, as well as extensive clinical training. Brooke was in the first graduating class to be certified in Neuro-Acupuncture and Tension Point Therapy under the guided teachings of the university’s president, Dr. Han. In 2012, by exceptional performance to contribute and render public and community health, contributing to Pastoral Hospital Foundations and to world good, The Sacred Medical Order of the Knights of Hope honored her as a Medical Diplomat.
Through her years of medicine she came to realized that it is not enough to work on the physical body but also the importance of the subconscious for permanent change. Dr. Brooke completed her Hypnosis training and Neurolinguistic programming ( NLP) at the prestigious Toronto University in Toronto, Canada with Mike Mandel who is considered the world’s foremost expert in teaching Ericksonian Hypnosis.
With the years of listening to the body and feeling the proprioceptive nuances Dr. Brooke developed synaesthesia. Where her sense of touch and sight crossed. So she would see what she felt and felt what she would see. Then it moved into feeling what was going on in a patient before they even came into the room. To the next level of knowing what was going on by simply thinking of someone. Dr. Brooke now utilizes this intuitive practice to medically identify areas in the body that keep it out of balance.
Dr. Brooke practices the practical effectiveness of this ancient art of science and healing. She values every opportunity to help patients, and passionately shares this healing art to help people find relief from their ailments on the physical level and beyond. She has been teaching, training and speaking the art of relaxation, to award winning spas , since 1998. For over those 2 decades, It has been Dr. Brooke's obsession to understand what it means to be stressed, how it affects our health, and how to heal. Most importantly how to stop the self destructive patterns of anxiety. Dr. Brooke believes in the true meaning of Wellness, which is the loving acceptance of yourself. Making positive decisions, in regard to social, emotional, economic, environmental, physical and spiritual alternatives. It’s not just the absence of disease.
