Kara Sorensen: February 2010 Innerpreneur Spotlight
\’\’Kara Sorensen, and I am thrilled to help women and men be free of their food cravings with Acupressure over the phone. I’m a licensed Acupuncturist and have master’s degrees in Chinese Medicine and Nutrition Science, so this work emerged naturally. For many years, I wasn’t sure how to pursue my career in health, and I’ve come to a place where I’m practicing and helping people in the way that feels true to my nature.
In my spare time, I love hiking, meditating, gardening, eating real food and appreciating the beauty of nature whenever possible. I have a pile of books waiting to be read, and am a lifelong learner. I am in introvert, but strangely love public speaking, especially about my healing work. This is of course after I get over my initial fears.
My passion is for:
Helping people make shifts that they never thought were possible. I’m drawn to modalities that can have immediate results that my patients can feel without the use of harsh chemicals. I use Acupuncture, Acupressure, or Nutrition to help facilitate this change. With Acupuncture, It’s a thrill to help someone be pain free as soon as his or her needles are inserted. With Acupressure, seeing their lifelong cravings, allergies or trauma fade brings me great joy. And who thought that small changes in one’s diet could feel so good?
My business helps you with:
Restore health where blocks have prevented you from experiencing your inherent wellness. Something unique I provide is helping people make peace with food.
My biggest challenge is:
Marketing and time management. I was trained as a healer, not much in business management, so it’s been a steep learning curve. I also deal a lot with disbelief that my Acupressure services can work so quickly and that the results are lasting. Often, doubts have to be worked through in sessions, as it feels to many that it’s too good to be true. Luckily, I have a lot of testimonials, which helps a little.
I make things different each day by:
Helping people be free of recent or long-standing health concerns at a reasonable price. Via my blog, it’s my hope to let people know that healing can happen naturally and that medications should be more of a last resort rather than a first. Our bodies have great potential for healing, but sometimes need a little help.
I have lots of ideas about:
Food and how we all can relate to it in a more peaceful way. I think a lot about how I can reach more people help them more quickly. I think about our current healthcare system and how illness has become the new norm in the United States and how to promote change for individuals and beyond.
My advice is:
Keep your connection to your passion active; this is what will draw the people that need your services to you. It will also keep you moving forward when things get difficult, and they will get difficult.
