Dr. Wendy Puchalski – Chiropractor and Applied Kinesiologist

Dr. Wendy Puchalski is a chiropractor, holistic practitioner and certified applied kinesiologist specializing in Neuro-Emotional Technique (N.E.T.).  She obtained her doctorate in chiropractic medicine from Los Angeles Chiropractic in 2007 with over 300 hour certification in Applied Kinesiology.  During treatment Dr. Wendy finds areas of misalignment and energy blockage while addressing four critical components to your health: structural impingements, chemical imbalances, emotional blocks, and energy (Qi) stagnation. Treatment is performed by focusing on the body’s dynamic energy through muscle testing, specific bodywork, meridian balancing, and much more.  Holistic chiropractic eliminates interferences and activates the innate healing response of the body.

Alexander Sharone, CMT

Deep Tissue, Myofascial Release & Craniosacral Unwinding

Alexander listens deeply to your body’s innate wisdom.  Each session is unique as he integrates therapeutic massage techniques, craniosacral unwinding, and myofascial release.  Alexander draws upon his training in structural integration and alignment-oriented therapies, while tuning into the subtle rhythm of the cerebrospinal fluid and fascial network.


Alexander facilitates the unwinding and release of tensions, emotions and energetic blockages.  He works your body’s own self-healing energies to promote equilibrium and ease.  This results in fluid, dynamic motion, improved posture, and a deeper sense of balance and inner peace.

“Every moment is an opportunity to breathe more deeply, to release all that no longer serves you, and to reconnect with your true divine nature.”


Alexander sees clients by appointment throughout Los Angeles.  Sessions are offered with the Bio-Mat, the amethyst crystal infrared heating pad, therapeutic-grade essential oils, and sound healing tools.

Alexander trained on the island of Kaua’i, Hawaii,at the Pacific Center for Awareness & Bodywork, completing 700 hours. He also trained as a Motion Mechanic at the Human Garage in Venice, CA.  Ongoing studies include Integrative Craniosacral Unwinding at the Life Energy Institute in Topanga, CA.

Andrew J Hafer 

Deep tissue Swedish massage, Shiatzu and Neuro-Structural Bodywork

Andrew Hafer CMT   Andrew began learning massage by trading with therapists in 2006. In his early years he was influenced by many different counter culture intellectuals. He became familiar with sacramental plant medicine as well as local music performance in Colorado, focusing on facilitating trance states and inner alchemy as he began to experience how yoga would open him to the great esoteric mystery.  He has explored shamanism, ethnobotany, sacred texts, music production, ozone therapy, massage and more in order to make unique contributions to the world.

Andrew was professionally trained at the Kali Institute for Massage and Somatic Therapies beginning in 2012. He was taught that the one open to healing themselves would be the person ultimately doing the healing. Andrew has over 600 hours of training in Western massage styles including Swedish, Deep Tissue, Sports, Hot Stone, Prenatal, Cranial Sacral, Neuro-Structural Bodywork (an offshoot of Rolfing) and Eastern styles including Thai Massage, Yin Yang Theory, Qi Gong, and Shiatsu that works along acupressure meridians. His typical approach uses oil massage with the deepest pressure comfortable, integrating a range of techniques specific to any particular concerns or for general benefit. Andrew believes massage is a part of a holistic approach to living a healthy lifestyle that may also include yoga, good food and herbs, a positive psyche, exorcise, etc. His massage can be used to successfully relieve pain and stress, for detoxification and to achieve relaxation and bliss.

Karin Pine 

An expert “pain tracker,” Karin Pine has been the “Go-To” Bodyworker at every Bhakti & Shakti Fest for staff members, musicians and an always-full schedule of clients.  More than a massage therapist, Karin is a Master Bodyworker.

As such — and because her work is so revolutionary and effective —  Karin has become well-known at Bhakti Fest.  Her schedule fills very quickly and sessions on her table are typically in high demand by the end of Festival.

Karin accomplishes immediate, often long-term, relief for all sorts of chronic or acute challenges with her “UnDoing Bodywork” which she laughingly describes as being like

“resetting your body to factory default!”  UnDoing is Karin’s own unique new fascia therapy.  It is deep, slow, intuitive and soothing — and very useful at eliminating aches, pains and freeing range-of-motion restrictions with laser-precision.

The results can be astonishing, as clients often report that “the pain is just gone!” This includes many conditions they thought they would have to live with (including back spasms, whiplash, rotator cuff/frozen shoulder injuries, sciatica, restless leg syndrome, yoga injuries, etc.)  Her home is in Tecopa Hot Springs, CA between Death Valley, CA and Las Vegas, NV.  In addition to private sessions and retreats, she offers classes, strategy coaching and UnDoing Fascia Therapy Bodywork Training & Marketing Program.

Len Watson

I graduated from The Florida School of Massage in 1979 and have since taught Massage for the American Massage and Therapy Association.

In 1989, I moved out to Maui Hawaii and became licensed there and continued my private practice until the present time.  People come from all over the world to experience my healing bodywork. I have continued to be very active in continuing education with CPU ‘s in Medical Massage as well as numerous Classes/Seminars as a Chiropractic Assistant. I have been very involved with Yoga and Nutrition the last 38 years. I present Power point lectures on Nutrition every Summer for the last 18 years, when I come to the West Coast.  I also share Structural oriented bodywork in Santa Monica, Hollywood and up the coast to Oregon. I have worked on such notables as John Denver, Woody Harrelson and Mariska Hargaity to name a few.  Clients tell me that they have never experienced such thorough and profound bodywork anywhere in the world. If you need a treatment that goes into areas most therapists do not touch or treat and that knows the body like a experienced Yogi then I’m your guy. I am also awesome with backs and neck problems.

For many of the Vendors at the Bhaktifest, no other therapist will do. One treatment is worth a thousand words.  Let me know if there are any questions you may have about my experience or bodywork.

You can reach me at (808) 870-9166. I look forward to being part of your Transformative Healing Experience

Rachel Lyn Durga

Sessions at Bhakti Fest: Ayurvedic Integrative Bodywork, CranioSacral Therapy, Vedic Crystal & Vital Energy Point Healing and Feminine Self-Love Ritual

Rachel Lyn Durga is an advocate for empowerment by way of self-education and aligning with the rhythms of nature and our universe. She is an integrative bodyworker and intuitive healer with a strong focus on Ayurvedic self-love rituals and modern folk mysticism. Her healing sessions hold the intention of grounding and nurturance and promotion of balance of the nervous system and energetic alignment with the spirit. She holds a BA in Honors Journalism & Mass Communication from the University of Minnesota where she began adopting alternative and comprehensive wellness at the Center for Spirituality and Healing.

Healing Sessions at Bhakti Fest draw from elements of Abhyanga, Swedish massage, CranioSacral therapy, Vedic crystal healing, reflexology, aromatherapy, lymphatic massage, marma vital energy point therapy, polarity therapy and Chakra clearing with alignment.

Personal evolution is essential for whole-being wellness. A daily practice of self-love (Sadhana) can be transformative.

Will Vanguard

I am a limitless, gifted healer, and if you feel called to work with me, I am humbled to be of service. I have lifetimes of experience, and over 1k hours of training from SB Body Therapy Institute as a Holistic Health Practitioner, Massage Therapist, and Medical Qi Gong Practitioner, which is like the 5,000 year old Traditional Chinese Medicine version of Reiki. As a practitioner of Chinese Energetic Medicine and bodywork, I am guided in part by the Five Element Theory of TCM. This understanding helps us discover which elements in the body-mind may have excess or deficient Qi, and gives us ways to use our intention to bring balance, incorporating touch, sound, intentional breathing, and imagery that have been passed down for millennia because of their effectiveness. In my physical body practice, I specialize in neck, shoulder, and back pain, as well as the corresponding Qi (energy) work that we use to purge, strengthen, and balance the body’s meridians through touch that is as deep as needed, relaxing and rejuvenating the body-mind.  See video and written reviews on my website www.HeHealsOnWheels.com, or by searching for ‘He Heals On Wheels’ on Facebook. I look forward to working with you.
