Rene David Alkalay

Bio
I have worked since 1970 as a healer, utilizing an integrative mind-body approach to wellness. My interest and personal journey in integrative models of health began at an early age, in 1958, with the practice of yoga and Zen Buddhism and I have continued throughout the years to explore, learn, and work with a wide range of tools in order to better serve the patients and clients that come to me.
