As she became an Instructor, she took particular interest in older students and students with body issues to help teach them to get the benefits of the martial and healing arts. She started to specialize in working with these students to make adjustments and gain confidence in what they could do.

From this experience, Human Harmonies was created. Her goal was to take the healing arts of QiGong (which is in all martial arts movements), Tai Ji and Bagua and help others learn how to improve their quality of life through the movements and protocols. She worked with Dr. James Stahl, Section Chief of Internal Medicine at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center to create and lead a study on the impact on Balance and Stability with the practice of QiGong.
