Renee Hella, RCST® grew up without electricity in a village in the highlands of Papua New Guinea. She received her Bachelors degree in physical and social anthropology in Southern California in the early 90s. She specializes in traditional food preparation rituals, including fermented foods, and has immersed herself in the delicious cultures of Morocco, Vietnam, Myanmar, Papua New Guinea, Scandinavia and Thailand. She also studied nutrition in New Zealand, Australia and UK. Renee trained in Biodynamic Craniosacral therapy in New Zealand in 2004 with Resonance Trainings and is an approved teacher of BCST.
Renee healed her own serious gut issues with GAPS™ (Gut and Psychology Syndrome) diet and BCST (biodynamic craniosacral therapy) and enjoys facilitating clients in their return to health. Renee is a certified GAPS™ practitioner as well as a professional chef trained at the Culinary Institute of America. Renee is a world renowned chef, acclaimed as a Hot Chef by Conde Naste in 2006.
Renee is also a trained Pre and Perinatal Psychology Practitioner. She assists with trainings and process workshops with Myrna Martin. Renee also facilitates a variety of deep foundational healing work with intensely somatic repatterning workshops.
Renee loves doing Elemental Chi Kung (Qi gong) and specializes in Digestive Qi Gong.
In clinical experience Renee noticed that therapeutic treatment gets to the foundation of the client’s situation by holistically harnessing health, while understanding and bringing to consciousness what is getting in the way of this health moving fully and coherently through every cell of the body. Learning to access the health in our bodies is incredibly powerful and transformational. Working with diet to improve nutritional resources and enhance our microbiome is a key aspect of Renee’s deep healing approach.
Our bodies are capable of releasing old painful or damaging patterns. Biodynamic Craniosacral therapy is very helpful in dealing with and letting go of emotional as well as physical traumas whether they are chronic or acute. Going deeper into your early somatic experiences such as difficult birth, early sexual abuse and even family imprints before you were even conceived with Pre and Perinatal work allows you to understand and differentiate ancestral patterns. This has helped many clients overcome patterns in behavior and thinking that interfere with health, addictive patterns, personal development, relationships, success and much more.
Renee’s first hand experience with severe digestive problems caused by toxic mold exposure, typhoid and antibiotic treatment led her to seek out and try many different types of diets, herbal remedies, exercise regimes and more. She eventually discovered the GAPS™ diet, and this has produced the most tangible and lasting results. The GAPS™ diet also greatly alleviated chronic allergy and asthma problems for her partner.
