About Rosalie



Dr Rosalie Van Aken RN, PhD, CHTP/I

I am an Australian Registered Nurse who has practiced mainly in the areas of mental health and drug and alcohol. I was also  employed by Southern Cross University teaching in the areas of Natural Therapies, Stress Management, Mental Health and Drug and Alcohol.  I curently work as a private practitioner, mentor and teacher in the Perth area.

I was awarded a PhD from Southern Cross University in 2004 for a study titled ‘Emerging from Depression: the experiential process of Healing Touch studied through grounded theory and case study’. The area of energy work and emotional health are a major interest.

I became a Certified Healing Touch Practitioner and Instructor in 1996 and continue to have a bioenergetic healing practice and teach all levels of the Healing Touch Certificate Program in the Asio Pacific Region. I developed the Way of the Healer series of workshops during 2005 to assist healers to develop their energy system. 

My objective is to share bioenergetic healing with as many people as possible through teaching, giving talks and doing the work.

We acknowledge   the traditional owners of the land on which we work and pay respects to Elders both past and present.
