Clinical Herbalist: Amanda Proznik
Amanda has been studying people since early childhood. Her keen interest in people, their tendencies, and their differences developed her interest in therapies and herbal practices that help to balance and soothe inflamed minds and bodies. From the age of 15 onward, Amanda faced various serious blocks in her own health that she successfully overcame with the use of herbal remedies and alternative therapies, including Reiki and Reflexology. This period in her life further strengthened her belief in the effectiveness of herbs and therapies as natural remedies for health.
At the age of 16, while on an exchange program in Quebec, she was trained in the gentle art of Reiki, and upon her return began providing treatments to her peers and locals in her community. Once finished high school she traveled to Quebec to pursue further education in Reiki, and later moved to Calgary, AB to study 'Influences on the Personality' with Paul Hewitt. During that time she also studied with Professional Iridologist, Georgina Cyr, in Vancouver, BC. She was certified as a Professional Iridologist with IIPA (International Iridology Practitioner's Association) at this time. She continued to provide treatments throughout her many travels across the country.
Amanda expanded her studies with the Wild Rose College in Calgary, AB, where she studied an assortment of courses including Herbology, Nutrition, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Traditional Ayurvedic Medicine, Applied Kinesiology, Raindrop Therapy Massage, Hot Stone Massage, Reflexology, Ear Candling and more. At the age of 20 she moved to Quebec and completed her Reiki Master program with Reiki Master, Lise Frédette. She later completed diplomas through the Wild Rose College in Wholistic Therapies, Practical Herbology, Master Herbology and finally Clinical Herbology at the age of 22, after having studied under Doctor of Natural Medicine & Clinical Herbalist, Flo Lavallie, and Master Herbalist Rheanne Haines in Saskatoon, SK. Amanda has since expanded her studies as a birth labour assistant, or Doula, under the teachings of Lisa Wass of Birth Rhythms and also teaches a course on Personality Influences and all 4 levels of Reiki (please contact Amanda for further details).
Amanda is dedicated to offering her clients a complete and relaxing experience they don’t soon forget. She educates them on how to best care for their individual mind and body and places an emphasis on emotional well-being and spiritual empowerment. Her passion is in your health and happiness and through the use of various skills and acquired techniques, she creates an individualized experience for everyone.
Amanda is now residing in her hometown of Saskatoon, SK, and is the owner and founder of Balancing Elements Health Clinic, located upstairs of Sangster’s Organic Market in the heart of downtown Saskatoon.
