BEING HEALTHY IS A JOURNEY, NOT A DESTINATION
Hello, my name is JURATE RUBIKIENE.
Originally, I was born and raised in Lithuania; the beautiful Eastern European country located on the shores of the Baltic sea.
In 2001, my former husband, our three children, and I moved from our organic farm in Lithuania to Cincinnati, Ohio with four suitcases and no English, and started a new life.
Just a few years later I was diagnosed with a skin auto-immune disorder, that according to the traditional medicine was not curable. I had just received my massage therapist license, and that answer was not suitable for my future.
I was highly motivated to explore holistic paths and to help my body heal.
I started first by un-learning the patterns that were not serving me.
Then, began to nourishing my body with clean , organic nutritious vegetarian diet. Later I joined spiritual community where I sat in many sacred circles and I was able to peel many layers of my limited believes and attachments to my stories, healed my wounds and invited myself to remember the truth of my being. I was able to let go of the toxic relationships and embraced the idea of being a co creator of my reality with my thoughts, words and actions. I started treating my body as a temple of my spirit with regular physical activity, meditation and living in symbiotic relationship with cycles of nature.
That’s when I finally figure it out that my body, mind and spirit are deeply interconnected and to heal any physical issue I needed to address the whole body.
At this moment in my life I am in a loving supportive committed relationship. I am a proud mother of three amazing college students. I am a passionate holistic health and wellness coach beyond the plate, licensed massage therapist, public speaker and shamanic priestess.
As an Integrative Nutrition Health and Wellness coach, I am here to provide you with the sacred space where true physical, emotional and spiritual transformation take place.

As a coach, I put the power back in YOUR hands.
