Pop-Up Clinics are just another way to foster deeper, more meaningful, and more fruitful connections, promote sustainable, holistic healing and build supportive community networks.
The Healer Connection
As a trauma therapist who grew up feeling isolated in rural Missouri, Toni has thought a lot about connections between “helpers” (people like us). She began to recognize a trend of caregivers not taking quite enough time to nurture deep connections, and communities leaving a lot to be desired in terms of collaboration – really knowing about other healers/teachers and their gifts, sensing instead a subtle competition (when their work is actually complementary and everyone would benefit by working more collaboratively), alienation and overwork.
Toni has been working on developing networks of support and healing in communities that are rich in resources but lean on juicy, playful connection. So far, clinics have been sprouting up in the Guadalajara Mexico and the Mid-Missouri regions. Some of the “gifts” being offered at these donation-basis integrative experiences include:
- Medical Intuition, Reiki
- CranioSacral Therapy
- Expressive Movement
- Yoga/Guided Meditation
- EFT Tapping
- Shamanic Astrology
- Jungian Dream Group
- Acro Yoga/Chi Kung
- And so much more!
If you are seeing what Toni has seen, you know people in your community who do really interesting work, but they are a little too busy to take advantage of your body of knowledge (“superpowers”), or you theirs.
Maybe you know people in your community who:
- Could be helped tremendously by what you were doing, but they aren’t sure they are ready to commit.
- Would have the extra time to dedicate to a day or half-day at a Pop-Up Clinic every couple months or so to get to know their community’s healers.
Contact Toni if:
- You are curious about whether your community would be a good place for a Pop-Up Clinic.
- If you feel it is time to join forces and actually make a difference, there are likely others around you feeling the same way.

What to Expect at the Pop-Up Clinic Event
The Pop-Up Clinic is a spa-like event with a group of core therapists (or other caregivers) who are offering individual sessions or leading small groups.
Local residents can come and try out services and modalities they have heard about, but weren’t quite ready to try. Envision the clinic as something that blossoms in communities to foster a greater sense of connection between healers and survivors of trauma who are just discovering and growing into their own gifts.
Pop-Up Clinics have a service focus. Donations are graciously accepted, but not required, and are divided between the therapists who are working that day.
