After working some crazy, odd jobs to put herself through college, Karen Aquinas worked in Oregon public schools for twenty-one years as a teacher and administrator. Much of her work was with students for whom the public school system was not a good fit. It turned out to be an excellent background for her work as an energist today.
Karen began studying energy psychology about six years ago. Natural abilities and an insatiable fascination with the human biofield led her to trainings and certifications in various energy techniques. After cutbacks in education in 2010, she started her Biofield Health business.
Her background affords her the ability to offer a uniquely balanced and broad approach to energy wellness. She sees it as an honor and a pleasure to work with those she serves. Karen and her daughter enjoy being part of the Yamhill Valley community; partaking in local celebrations, concerts, farmers’ markets and the like. They moved to McMinnville from Klamath Falls in 2005.
What do you like most about what you do?
I am humbled and motivated by the transformations I witness. When it comes down to the actual service I provide, I am more a facilitator than anything else; I love that my clients can take ownership of the remarkable changes that occur. Individuals have let go of and moved past debilitating beliefs, stress and painful events to living lives of joy. I’m honored to be part of the process.
Why did you join WOW and what is the most rewarding or valuable aspect of being a WOW member?
I joined WOW to meet other women in the area and to share my work. It’s been great to experience the energy of success and determination within the group.
Who could be an ideal potential client for you?
Ideal candidates for me are women and teens who are 'stressed out', experience anxiety, are frustrated or unhappy, and want to step into happier, more positive lives. Individuals who have Post Traumatic Stress are also ideal candidates. People who are curious about energy work and want to move past traumatic experiences will achieve a peace and newfound joy in living they would not have thought possible.

What do you like to do for fun?
I love being outdoors; hiking, kayaking, meandering by rivers. And… (confession) I have a lot of fun playing in orchestras for musicals. Usually, no one can see the musicians, so we get to perform without all the pomp and circumstance; we get to make great music and watch a good show. Fun!
What are five things you cannot live without?
Where is your favorite place to vacation?
I like to explore places I haven’t been with people I love.
