Susun Weed answers 90 minutes of herbal health questions follwed by a 30 minute interview with Wendy Hammarstrom. After studying art, dance and theater in Philadelphia in the 1970s, and receiving a BFA in Dance from Temple University in 1978, Wendy and her husband turned their East Oak Lane home into Innerworks Center for bodywork and movement classes. At the same time, Wendy also founded Agape Dancers, a modern dance troupe whose choreography included images from nature, yoga and martial arts. Since moving to California she has taught massage therapy, yoga and mandala art, written for a variety of newspapers, and completed her book, Circles of Healing. She has been blessed with a wonderful daughter, Marina Braff, and has shared her home with a multitude of animals.
Wendy continues to see massage and yoga therapy clients in North County San Diego and the Inland Valley. Website: www.circlesofhealingbook1.com and email: Innerworks1@aol.com
