MEET THE VISIONARIES OF EHA
Over the last 3 years, O'tion & V have helped practitioners around the globe access deeper levels of healing for their clients while reaching new heights in their personal lives and private practices.
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 was piqued…”if this can heal migraines, what else can we resolve?!"
Aside from their own healing exploration, V began bringing this information into her acupuncture sessions, and her practice quickly took off like wildfire. She became one of the most in-demand practitioners in Alberta, some clients driving up to 500 km 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. Healers, 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, Visionary, Marketing Director, Reality Bender, Anomaly.
O'tion, (formerly Kelsey), is here to help you tap into the tidal wave of possibility available to you and your business.
As an androgynous queer human, O'tion loves working with practitioners & entrepreneurs who are ready to build an empire through the lens of radical authenticity & savage self-awareness.
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 this one when she was in the womb!
Rocking radical transparency and the ability to make even the blackest sheep feel normal, her highly engaging and entertaining lectures in the academy are both magnetic and ironic, considering she's a total introvert.
O'tions endless ideas and ability to think outside the box will have you inspired to create new realms you never thought possible; while delivering an experience beyond what your clients thought was possible.
With her and V’s spontaneous move to The Sunshine Coast, you’ll find her getting lost in their back 40 rainforest, 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’s essence may be the medicine and mentor 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.
