Mini Bio


Blessings and Welcome to my launching pad on the net!
My name is Tamu Ngina which is a Swahili & Kikuyu name which means Sweet, One Who Serves.

As I enjoy joking thank goodness my mother was not teaching herself Klingon when she was pregnant with me.

I am a mother of three, two of which are teenagers. My passion is art and energy healing. Research and constant learning is what drives me.

Along with being a visual artist I am also Holistic Health Practitioner, Reiki Master and certified Reflexology Therapist whose motto is : Love Your Feet & Your Body Will Love You!

I received my Therapeutic Reflexology Diploma from Lehigh Valley Healing Arts Academy a Pennsylvania Department of Education state certified school under the instruction of Diane Alex.

My Reiki journey has me at master level practitioner trained in both Western and Japanese Reiki and I am deeply committed to a life long practice and learning in the field of energy healing. Reiki training was received from Rachel Evanofsky, Arnie Hagerty, Diane Griffin, Leslie & Jayson Suttkis, Reiki Blessings Academy, In the Heart of Reiki, Robin Littlefeather Hannon of Abiding Reiki & Don Becket. As they say, the beat goes on!

I am a professional member of the Reflexology Association of America, International Association of Reiki Professionals, practitioner member of American Holistic Health Association, International Natural Healers Association, and a Care Alternatives Hospice Event Volunteer.

These are just a few of my past accomplishments and I figure I will leave this current list as is. Any current events will be added as they occur. I took several years off just in order to enjoy being and taking care of my children.
