Aloha, I’m Luannah

I’d like to help you get a sense of my approach to healing and coaching, and get a feel for who I am.

I want you to feel comfortable and confident that when you work with me I bring a balance of deeply human humility and 30 years of training, practice, and expertise.

My Vision has Always been to Help People Cultivate Joy in Life

For me, life is an extraordinary adventure of exploration and discovery. I see challenges and adversity as being the source of our greatest possibilities that activate our creativity and intelligence to grow.

Having lived and travelled overseas for many years, my life and mind have been touched and shaped by many cultures and their life wisdoms and teachings, lending me a very broad mind and heart.

Since early childhood I always had questions about the deeper meaning of life and was a curious explorer of meditation, metaphysics, philosophy, psychology, religion, you name it, if it had anything to do with understanding life, I gobbled it up.

I was looking to understand my life, my family and my place & purpose in the larger scheme of things. My childhood was filled with tremendous trauma and adversity, which set me on this lifelong path to grow beyond familial patterns, heal, embody true joy… and help others to do the same.

History, Training, and Initiation

I lived in Germany and Switzerland for almost 11 years and during that time I would save my money and travel all over the world.

It was in Germany that I got involved with learning various massage & energy healing modalities, both as a way to heal my self, and to grow the natural gift of healing that I had since I was little.

After that I spent 5 years travelling back and forth to Hawaii, learning with my Kahuna Elder who eventually initiated and certified me to be Kumu and Kahu, Teacher and Healer of Hawaiian Healing Wisdoms and practices. I am honoured to be one of the first of a small group of people to be initiated in my Hawaiian elder’s teachings.

The Life Principles of the Hawaiin tradition brought it all together for me.

My heart felt 100% at home in Hawaii and with their wisdoms. No gaps. No dogmas. Nothing is missing. Just pure love and usable wisdom and insight that can be easily implemented by anyone.

My life is a living testament that we can grow and heal beyond trauma and live a happy and fulfilling life. That is my ultimate authority in offering this work.

What started as a healing journey for me alone has now become a journey to share with many. I never planned this to be my life, but I am beyond grateful it is. My passion is sharing what helped me. My favourite moments are when I see the light turn on in my clients and I get to witness them rising above and beyond what once held them back, to finally live the life they long to live.

If what is shared here resonates with you, I really look forward to working together with you!


Expertise Around Trauma

Luannah is extraordinary. She quickly cuts to the heart of any issue with a deep understanding and clear, actionable next steps toward healing. Luannah has worked with my family, and I have recommended her to friends with glowing feedback. Her expertise around trauma and the methods she employs to work through it keeps you moving forward in a safe, secure way. Luannah’s care extends well beyond the sessions, as she is truly invested in helping people.

Hola, I am Juan Carlos

I am on a lifelong journey of learning, growing, and helping others to do the same.

I was born in Peru, and I grew up in a society where there was a terrorist group. With my future uncertain I travelled to Japan where I lived for 4 years, and there I learned about working hard and the reverence of Buddhism. This truly formed my pathway to the spiritualism and the awareness of cause and effect law, gratitude, and humbleness.

I returned to Peru where I went to a technical school to study to become airplane mechanic. I got married and moved to USA to look for a better future. Like everyone else we dedicated our lives to reach materialistic goals and build our status in life, and after 9 years we immigrated to Canada with our 8-month-old son. My marriage ended after 13 years and I felt both a sense of relief and at the same time I was devastated and angry.

I was so angry that it scared me. It was then I decided for the grace of God to search for help. This was the best decision I’ve ever made. It was the beginning of my self-discovery and healing, and it took me many years of de-programming myself of wrong ideas of what a marriage is supposed to be. I learned that I did not know what love was about, I realized I was full of guilt, low self-esteem, and that I project everything outside of me. For 4 years I learned all about Family Constellation work, and this helped me to see how disharmonious my life has been, starting with my family of origin.

Luannah came into my life in this process and her love and support helped me immensely.

I studied in Family Constellations, Peruvian Shamanism, and SoulSpectives courses with Luannah.

Throughout all of this I became more free of pain, more loving, and I started loving myself more than ever. I stopped blaming outside of me and started looking inside.

Basically you could say that I re-wrote the book of my life, transforming from victim to become the Victor, and from the despair I become the blessed.

There is nothing more beautiful than living in peace.

I’m happy to say that now I feel so blessed in all my relationships: with my best friend/wife, as a father, and happily and humbly together with my wife we built a beautiful relationship with the mother of my son, Cynthia, who has become like a sister to us. Our son is growing happily knowing that his parents have a harmonious relationship.

I graduated as a coach in Family Constellations and in Marriage Coaching as well. In addition to working with my wife Luannah I run my own company specialized in laboratory equipment repair while I am also inventing my own equipment.

SoulsSpectively I learned about nature, art, and out of nature observation I have become humbly and proudly a divine masculine where it is good and right to adore the family, to protect them, and to support all of them. I adore my wife who is my other half, my feminine one, and the results are spectacular and amazing.

I love to share with anyone who resonates with my story, the tools and practices that I have learned to use and practice every day.

I welcome you as brother of this earth.

Simply Astounding!

Luannah’s energy work and healing touch were restorative on so many levels it’s hard to know where to begin. Through the initial use of massage and biosonic tuning forks, Luannah helped to release deep pockets of physical and psychological pain that I could no longer contain.

Through the profound Crystal Singing Bowl session that followed, and through ongoing bodywork and breath work, I have felt my soul vibrate and levitate, blessed by Luannah’s sacred song and counsel.
Luannah’s deep connection to divinity is absolutely tangible upon meeting her. Her generosity of spirit and warm light is a gift with each visit.

I am so grateful for her understanding, her humour, her love and her teachings. The manifestation of joy and happiness she’s helped me to foster in my own life has been simply astounding! Mahalo!
