MEET THE VISIONARIES OF EHA
Over the last 3 years, O'tion & V have helped humans all over the globe resolve the emotional root cause of mental, emotional & physical suffering.
It all started with a personal mission to heal O'tion's migraines in 2015 after being let down by all other medical options.
After stumbling upon a podcast about the science behind repressed emotions & memories, they resolved her migraines after uncovering and bringing resolution to a seemingly insignificant memory from when O'tion was 12.
Their curiosity piqued…”if this can heal migraines, what else can we resolve?!"
They went on to resolve V's longstanding IBS, daily headaches and acne... As well as O'tion's Migraines, Sciatica Pain, Eczema and PF Syndrome.
(and between the two of them, a LOT of repressed anger & other emotional baggage)...
As an acupuncturist, V was stoked. She started experimenting with this information in her acupuncture sessions and was blown away by how quickly and significantly people were healing - especially in areas where acupuncture wasn't sustaining the results.
It didn't take long before people caught wind of the results she was getting with clients, and her practice took off like wildfire.
She became one of the most in-demand practitioners in Alberta, some clients driving up to 500 km ONE WAY to receive a session.
Eventually, V's schedule became so booked, she had to start turning clients away.
That's when her and O'tion became OBSESSED with getting this information into the hands of more healers & practitioners who wanted to raise the caliber of their healing capacities.
They are, after all, are the ones who could help amplify their reach by accessing more humans.
O'tion & V distilled what is now known as Subconscious Imprinting Technique, into a step-by-step system for practitioners to plug into their sessions so they, too, could initiate deep, life-altering change for their clients.
Co-Founder, Lead Facilitator, Visionary & Director.
Being the co-creator of a trauma healing modality may seem like an odd pursuit considering she was expelled from high school; but going against the grain was literally hardwired into O'tion when she was in the womb!
Rocking radical transparency and the ability to make even the blackest sheep feel normal, O'tion is the ultimate example of what's possible when you OWN your story instead of hide from it. Her Dad's suicide in 2015 was the catalyst to her beginning to choose more from life.
As an androgynous, queer, self-taught entrepreneur who grew EHA to a 6 figure+ per year business since the year they launched, O'tion loves mentoring entrepreneurial practitioners who are ready to build their own company without abandoning their values, personality, or authenticity.
Alongside co-creating Subconscious Imprinting Technique, O'tion also passionate about somatic-led business coaching, as well as providing her unique form of breathwork to unlock radical healing, expression, and expansion.
With her and V’s spontaneous move to The Sunshine Coast, you’ll find her screaming about whales, eagles, sea otters, and basically any living creature, taking photos of her beloved Italian Mastiff and stunning rag-doll cat, scaling mossy banks, or sipping americano’s on the ocean side.

Co-Founder, Lead Facilitator, Conductor of Healing in the realm of Magic
Charming and compassionate, with a healthy dose of “don’t f#%k with me”, Vincent, often referred to as V, has an essence that may be the medicine and mentorship your soul’s been longing for.
Those who know V have realized; you can run, you can hide, but she will still see you. All of you. This is both terrifying and magnetizing.
How does she do it? How is she able to see your deepest secrets and relieve you of their burdens within minutes of being in her presence?
This is the magic that she’s known for empowering healers with, within her academy, as well as clients in her private practice reserved for those who are ready to heal the unthinkable.
V’s acupuncture sessions are an amalgamation of ancient chinese wisdom, intertwined with her own magic, which made her one of Edmonton’s most sought out acupuncturists. She now brings this to the Sunshine Coast of BC.
When she’s not in her healing mindspace, her favourite past times include making Orgonite, sitting by the beach, running through the rainforest to do cryotherapy in ice cold creek water, sipping americano’s with her hilarious wife, and ripping through the rainforest on her Rad Runner plus.
V is someone you’ll quickly fall in-love with, simply because of her ability to guide you to fall in-love with yourself.
Could eat rice every single day for the rest of her life
Has literal difficulty distinguishing between colors. Especially yellow vs. orange, blue vs. black
Will instinctively crush bugs out of fear (much to her Wife’s dismay)
Created a 10 piece androgynous fashion line and presented it at Canada Western Fashion Week
Oddly delighted with the muscle twitch response that an acu needle can provoke
Favourite Movie of ALL TIME: Avatar
Biggest Pet Peeve: Sarcasm, the sound of dogs bathing
Can access a shockingly deep voice for her petite frame (legit baritone)

AKA: EHA's very own Mama Bear
Team EHA's Student & Client Care Specialist
Perhaps it was growing up with many unmet needs that have curated my expertise in the field of Client Care Specialist. The majority of my career has been spent taking care of people; nurturing them when they’ve felt vulnerable, upset, and scared.
Much of my historical career experience has been in Chiropractic, Natural Health and Wellness Clinics, Dental and Sleep Apnea clinics: all presenting circumstances your inner child might scream “I want my Mommy”.
It is the wish list in my mind of ways I wish I had been held, supported and acknowledged that became my superpower. I have a way of knowing what you need, often times before you yourself does. This was the treasure in my trauma!
As a previous student of EHA and becoming a S.I.T. practitioner; so many things suddenly made sense to me as I came to understand trauma and how it appears in people's lives. Learning many more tools, fine tuning my intuition and being an octagon in a square world myself, it was a perfect fit for me to become a part of the EHA team.
So, when you break through obstacles and patterns of behaviour, Mama Kae is here to celebrate you. When you fall and hurt your feelings, Mama Kae is here to hold space for you and when you try to hide from your higher self, Mama Kae is here to coax you to step into and to illuminate your greatness. I see you, I hear you, I acknowledge you and I celebrate the weirdly wonderful and unique magical being that you clearly must be, because you found your way here! Welcome!
