Meet Our Specialists at O’Shea Yoga
Linda McLachlan, MA, RDN
Linda is a Registered Dietitian-Nutritionist and has a Masters degree in Nutrition Education. She is certified in Adult and Adolescent Weight Management and is also a Certified Advanced Practitioner of Integrative and Functional Medical Nutrition Therapy. For nearly 20 years, Linda has been helping people find creative ways to integrate healthier habits into their busy lives.
Linda practices Integrative and Functional Medical Nutrition Therapy (IFMNT) to promote optimal health, which is an approach that looks deeper at your unique biochemistry and genetic profile to identify your nutritional needs. She has always been fascinated with how different the body can function based on the foods we choose to eat. From her experience over the years, she’s learned how food not only provides calories, but it also provides information that speaks to your individual biochemistry and has a direct effect on whether you end up with disease in your body or not. In fact, one person can absorb and utilize a nutrient completely different from the next person and many common subtle ailments are often early signs of a nutritional imbalance that over time can lead to disease. She helps with all health conditions such as gut imbalances, autoimmune, hormone balance, diabetes, cardiac health and many others. Linda’s assessment will translate this science directly to your plate with specific foods and recipe strategies so you can easily implement the nutrition protocols at home. She also offers several Catered Nutritional Cleanse programs to assist you with getting the healing foods you need onto your table with ease.
Linda believes that in many cases, food can be your medicine, but being well nourished is about more than the foods we eat. It’s also about how we nourish not only our body but our mind and spirit as well. Linda is honored to bring nutritional support services to O’Shea Yoga and feels grateful to share her passion of healing foods with this community.
Benefits: Jin Shin Jyutsu® has been shown to be useful in reducing anxiety and pain, accelerating healing and promoting a greater sense of wellness.
What to expect in a Jin Shin Jyutsu Session:
During a 60-75 minute session, the client is fully clothed lying on his/her back. The Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioner begins by listening to a client's pulses to determine areas of congestion in the body.
Then through a series of steps including body reading and a client's requests, the practitioner plans flows using both hands to hold locations on the body (called Safety Energy Locks -SEL) to open and release congestion.
Suzanne graduated from Naturally Yoga’s Teacher Training Program in June of 2011 and completed the Professional Jin Shin Jyutsu® Practitioner Course co-sponsored by the Mary Burmeister Jin Shin Jyutsu Institute and Atlantic Health System in 2016.
Suzanne became a yoga instructor and a Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioner because she’s passionate about helping others to realize their potential, whether it be with her students on the mat, or helping her clients gain relief from stress and discomfort via Jin Shin Jyutsu®
She was first introduced to Jin Shin Jyutsu® in 2008 while taking a self help class and learned that simply holding a finger could calm such discomforts as worry and stomach distress.
Suzanne offers private Jin Shin Jyutsu® sessions, self-help Jin Shin Jyutsu® workshops.

Fran has always believed in the body’s ability to reach optimal health. With a passion for continuing education and an open mind for many approaches to healthcare, she has studied many types of yoga and QiGong. In 2006, she found her calling upon completing training for craniosacral therapy through the Upledger Institute. This therapy involves a delicate touch to release restrictions in the body, thereby allowing proper rhythm to be restored to the system. The goal is to restore overall better health and increased resistance to disease by tapping into the body’s ability to heal. Fran feels honored to be able to bring this therapy to O’Shea Yoga.
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle hands on approach that releases tensions in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health. Using a soft touch, restrictions in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system are released. CST is also used as a preventative health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease. It is effective for a wide range of medical problems. The following are conditions that she treats in individuals 18 years of age and over: Stress and tension, Chronic fatigue, Migraines/headaches, Dizziness/vertigo, Sinus problems, Allergies, Chronic neck and back pain, Immune disorders, Fibromyalgia, TMJ (temporomandibular joint dysfunction), Menopausal symptoms and Preventative health and maintaining well being.
To learn more about Cranial Sacral Therapy or to schedule an appointment with Fran, please e-mail her at Lembo.email@example.com or call her at 201-774-6186.

Suzanne Andora Barron is a Certified Jin Shin Jyutsu
Practitioner ® and is also a Registered Yoga Teacher
History of Jin Shin Jyutsu: According to ancient written records, which remain in the Archives of the Imperial Palace in Japan, Jin Shin Jyutsu® was widely known before the birth of Buddha and Moses.
It was rediscovered by Master Jiro Murai early in the 20th century and his student, Mary Burmeister, brought the Art from Japan to America in the 1950's.
Jin Shin Jyutsu is an art: In Jin Shin Jyutsu®, we use our two hands in the form of light touch to release congestion and harmonize the body, mind and spirit.
Our bodies contain several energy pathways that feed life into all of our cells. When one or more of these paths become blocked, this damming effect may lead to discomfort or even pain.
Blockages can occur because of our hectic lifestyle, environment and/or genetics. In Jin Shin Jyutsu®, we place our hands on specific locations (known as SELs) on the body which allows the energy to flow more freely.

Lauren is a Reiki Master and holds a certificate in Access Consciousness.
Lauren has always been drawn to the spiritual. In 2014, she began reading and taking workshops in mediumship and various energy modalities. Her first Reiki session proved to be a major turning point and opened the door to what she was truly called to do. Seeing how much Reiki has positively affected her own life, Lauren wanted to share this experience with others and shed light on someone else’s personal journey.
Reiki is a relaxing, calming modality. This Japanese technique allows spiritually guided energy to balance and ease the body on a physical, emotional, and spiritual level. This beneficial practice promotes healing and leaves the client with an overall greater sense of peace. A session with Lauren would include an aura clearing with the aid of crystal energy. After the aura is cleared, Lauren uses a pendulum and her intuitive abilities to guide the practice. She hovers her hands over the client and channels the Reiki energy where needed.
Everyone experiences energy differently. Reiki is a very relaxing experience and clients may fall asleep during a treatment. Some clients experience different temperature sensations, tingling, feeling energy moving through the body or a sense of floating. Others report seeing visions or having emotional releases.
