Karin Brunner

Karin started her AcuEnergetics journey in 2011 at the Humaniversity in the Netherlands. With a master degree in psychology and working as a therapist for over 18 years she looked for a way to combine the mind, body and spirit more holistically. After participating in level 2 she knew that she had found that way. After travelling to Sydney in 2016 she qualified that year as a AcuEnergetics Wellness Balancer and currently she is working on becoming an AcuE Practitioner. Keeping in touch with the lovely global community helps on that journey! 


Simon Feely

Simon started the AcuE training in 2016. After seeing the immediate impact it had on his flexibility he had no doubt that he wanted to do the training. In 2020 he qualified as a Practitioner.
