About Klára Abdi de Luz
Originally from Czechoslovakia, I escaped my country with my mother and elder brother and became a refugee to Canada at the age of 10.
In 2014, I embarked on a healing journey to heal my developmental, complex and intergenerational trauma.
My healing journey included transformational counselling, reconnected to my body and intuition through dance and meditation, discovering sound healing, delving into and healing my subconscious and doing ancestral healing through my own ceremonies.
The primary healing modality I employ is sound healing which I discovered in 2018, drawing on my previous musical training and my newly-discovered healing abilities.
I am also trained in a form of energy healing called Pranic Healing, aspects of which I use in my practice. Over time, through my work with various body workers and massage therapists, I also developed my own form of healing touch therapy. Furthermore, I teach my clients EFT to help them deal with acute symptoms whenever they may need.
I trained with Richard Hastings, MA, in his transformational approach to counselling and also draw on the complementary work of Dr. Richard Schwarz, founder of Internal Family Systems (IFS).
I combine all these modalities to form my own unique healing approach.
I am currently a PhD Candidate at UBC, writing an arts-based dissertation examining my own trauma healing journey. I draw on concepts from psychology, various forms of alternative healing and spirituality and am using both creative writing and my sound healing videos to convey to my readers/viewers/listeners my experiences in beautiful and multi-modal forms. Through my healing work with clients and my PhD project I am in the process of developing a unique healing framework for the healing of trauma.
I am active on YouTube, creating mostly sound healing meditations, and ASMR videos with sound and energy work. I also create more channelled shamanic style videos with drumming and other instruments. Check out my channel: Sound Journeys https://www.youtube.com/@SoundJourneys
My intention in all my work is to help people heal, whether this is simply from sharing vulnerably so others know they are not alone in their struggles or working directly with clients in my practice.
If all this resonates with you, I would love to work with you in my UBC studio in Vancouver or at your home in the Lower Mainland, Sunshine Coast or Vancouver Island. I can also work with you online if you do not live in my area. Please reach out and let's connect and discuss the best healing options for you.
Thank you for visiting my page and connecting.
Other Practitioners I Work With
Dr. Maryam Ferdosian, ND
East Van Integrated Health
Growing up and witnessing suffering and chronic and incurable diseases, I dreamed of being a doctor that could discover a cure for everyone. I knew that helping people heal was my highest calling and I dreamed of pursuing medicine.
When I immigrated from Iran to Canada as a teenager, a whole new world of opportunities opened up for me. I attended Simon Fraser University and graduated with my Bachelor of Applied Science in Kinesiology, and began working as a kinesiologist and personal trainer. It was not long after I began my Naturopathic schooling when I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.
I began to seek alternative solutions that aligned with my understanding of the body and could help me flourish. I found natural solutions that supported me on my healing journey. I am so grateful to be able to offer my patients sustainable, natural solutions that can transform their lives. I am honoured to assist my patients on their own healing journey and to be there for them through life’s ups and downs.
With the right support anyone can heal and thrive.
You are complex. Your experience is a part of who you are. You are not just a body. Your environment, habits, thoughts, feelings and unique anatomy are keys to finding sustainable solutions and building a beautiful and healthy life.
I was attracted to Naturopathic Medicine for this holistic perspective. I received my designation of Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine from the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine in British Columbia and have further certifications in Bowen therapy, Cranial Sacral therapy, IV therapy, and drug prescription authority. One of the main principles of Naturopathic Medicine states that the mind, body, and spirit must harmoniously work together to heal the whole person. I use individualized treatments according to your specific needs and goals. I am committed to supporting you, listening to your experience, addressing your symptoms, and enabling you to take charge of your health, and move towards a state of holistic health and freedom.There is no one pill that will cure everything, and the causes of disease or illness may be several. The human body and experience is complex, and there is no ‘one way’ to optimal health or healing.

Bodyworker and Somatic Energy Healer
Hi there, I'm Roya. I am a bodyworker and somatic energy healer with a studio at UBC. I graduated from the Vancouver School of Healing Arts with a Bodywork Therapy Diploma. Prior to my schooling, I was very sensitive to energies in my environment and the people I came into contact with. Through my own personal journey with somatic healing, I have been able to grow my roots deeper and fuller. Combining my personal experiences with my schooling, I now have a solid foundation for my work.
My work is cantered around the sacredness of our needs, integration and healing. I believe that through the recognition and fulfillment of our needs we become more embodied and in tune with our higher selves.
I have been trained in multiple modalities, including myofascial deep tissue, reflexology, Swedish, joint release, head massage, hydrotherapy combined with aromatherapy.
My work is centred around the sacredness of our needs, integration and healing. I believe that through the recognition and fulfillment of our needs we become more embodied and in tune with our higher selves. I also believe that it is through the process that we gain wisdom about our patterns in relation to unmet needs. I believe that maybe it is the complexity of our needs that reflects the depths of our spiritual nature.
I have always been in tune with my body and how our spirit leaves us messages through this vessels. My role is to listen and bring the intention of love and acceptance into places within the body that call me to them. I find that the more present the client is willing to be the more powerful the impact will be. You don’t have to do anything but breathe and surrender.
Though my work is always centred around energy (state of being and embodiment) I still love to use touch and my physical techniques to help ground and explore the range of movement in the body. To me it’s about balance, they help each other, they coexist. You can’t shift the physical without first shifting the energetic, but that all happens in the nervous system. The nervous system and massage have been linked throughout time but now that we are understanding the layers and importance nervous system work has on us, our work is no longer superficial and just relaxing - it is healing and using that knowledge to bring awareness is so powerful.
You can find me @integrativespirit on Instagram and Facebook. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I offer 60 and 75 minute treatments for $80 and $95 respectively. There is also a special price for consecutive bodywork session with me and sound healing session with Klára - 2 hour total for $195 ($20 savings).
