Modules Covered:

Dr. Van Warren

My name is Van R. Warren and I have been a practitioner of the healing arts for over 50 years. Forty of those years were spent in private practice as a Dr. of Oriental Medicine where I practiced Acupuncture, Chinese Herbology, Integrative medicine, Massage Therapy, NLP, trauma release techniques, and Lifestyle Counseling. I have completed post-doctorate work at Harvard Medical School (Mind-Body Institute) in the study and treatment of stress-related disorders and am a certified Stress and Wellness Consultant/coach through the Canadian Institute of Stress. In these last 50 years of life, I have also studied and taught yoga, Qi Gong, meditation, and many other spiritually centered natural healing systems. 



I am committed to helping myself and others live a more conscious and spiritually centered life. Over the years I have helped many people explore the spiritual path of healing and assisted caregivers and terminally ill people through their dying process. I help these caregivers and those who are close to death live a more conscious life, free from fear. A few things have become very clear: 1. We are all going to die, and no one knows when their time will come. 2. It is never too late to begin the spiritual process of healing. 3. It is never too early to begin living life more fully from a conscious and awakened heart.


I have worked with thousands of patients just like you with safe and effective natural medicine. With proper education, care, and support, most have been able to live much fuller lives and experience higher levels of health and wellness. I am constantly amazed and humbled by the power of the body to heal when given the opportunity and right nudges. I hope I can be of service to you also.
