Meet Rebecca Harmon of In Harmony Healing in Rancho Santa Fe and Cielo village

Today we’d like to introduce you to Rebecca Harmon.

Rebecca, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
When I first went away to college at Chico State University, my guidance counselor asked if I had decided what subjects I was interested in, so that she could direct me down the ideal career path. I told her that I was interested in pursuing a career that integrated the mind, body, spirit connection. I will never forget the look on her face!! She looked at me like I had suddenly grown 3 heads and had no real plan for me based on my interests. So by the time I graduated, I had done my best to develop these interests by graduating with a BS in Psychology, a Minor in Health Sciences and had an internship at the wellness center on campus. Once I graduated, I had no idea how I was supposed to apply my education to a career that I wanted and felt a bit lost.

Shortly after, I went on to learn massage and energy work and got certified as a Reiki practitioner. I thought that this might be the path to a more holistic approach to health that I was searching for in my career. I had just started my massage/energy healing practice (approximately 6 months) when I suddenly got hit by a bus walking across the street. I was extremely lucky and left the scene nearly unscathed, but noticed that after, doing massage caused my hands to become numb. From there, I ended up working with a Chiropractor due to my injuries, working as an assistant and learned a great deal about this field. At first, it seemed like an interesting career, but something about it wasn’t the right fit for me.

About a year later, I decided to move to San Diego and shortly after I decided to take some local courses on herbal medicine and later found myself working as a manager in the Vitamin/Herb department at Whole Foods Market. A coworker that soon became my friend suggested going to Acupuncture school. She understood my interests and thought it would be a perfect direction. During the orientation, they talked about how Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) integrates the mind, body, and spirit and realized that they all influenced each other. I was so excited to learn about it, so applied to get my Master’s Degree in TCM and become an acupuncturist even before I had my first treatment!

While it wasn’t the straightest path, it was the perfect route for what I had always been looking for in my career. I have been hooked by the magic of its healing effects ever since.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I’m super excited about where I have ended up, but sometimes wonder if I would have been here sooner if I had paid more attention to the signs at the time. Intuition is a big part of my life now and I encourage my patients to listen to their own on a regular basis, but this wasn’t always the case for me. I used to listen to the logical part of myself and over time I have come to realize that both logic and intuition are very important to my assessment of solutions.

If I had noticed certain signs, I may have become an acupuncturist sooner in life. For example, I had an acupuncturist come up to me randomly while I was studying at a coffee shop at Chico State University. He asked me specifically if I was interested in studying acupuncture. He explained that he was an acupuncturist and was interested in teaching me acupressure. At the time, I ignored it.

On another occasion, while I was working for a chiropractor, I was sent to an acupuncturist that did a specific technique on me called gua sha because my pain wasn’t resolved by having chiropractic treatments alone. After the acupuncture, all of my residual pain was healed. The point is that my path would have probably been quicker if I had taken the time to heed my intuition. Now I listen to both the logical and intuitive equally and suggest this to everyone!

Please tell us about In Harmony Healing.
In Harmony Healing is a business that focuses on achieving optimal health for the mind, body and spirit. I mainly focus on using acupuncture to achieve this balance, but also utilize other techniques I’ve learned over the years. Thetahealing, pranic healing, chakra balancing through biofield tuning, and herbs/supplementation are other modalities that I use to assist in this balance as well.

Thetahealing is a technique used to change subconscious belief systems. We sometimes learn beliefs at a very young age that no longer resonate with us in adulthood and can get in the way of the progress we want to achieve. Pranic healing is a type of energy work that utilizes life force energy to make changes in both the physical body as well as the etheric body (a.k.a aura). Biofield tuning involves using tuning forks and sound therapy to release old traumas.

Once these old traumas are emotionally released, other circumstances that would normally trigger us are no longer activated within us. Between acupuncture and all of the other modalities, the common theme is the balance that shows up through acupuncture, Chinese medicine and intuition to get to where you want to be.

Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
One of my favorite memories of childhood was spending time with my mom in San Francisco to go shopping for clothes. My birthday is in December and I recall the city beautifully decorated with Christmas displays and twinkling lights. It made wonderful holiday memories.
