MELODIES OF HEALING + EXPRESSION
RESONATING THROUGHOUT YOUR JOURNEY
Ian Wilkerson, founder and CEO of Bay Area Music Therapy, decided to establish the Center for Healing and Expression, Inc. in honor of his late mother, Michele Newmark, a Reichian Therapist, nutritionist, and healer, who passed away in April of 2016. Michele owned and operated a former Center for Healing and Expression in San Francisco, CA, for many years. Ian and his mother had dreamed about opening a new location that combined their work with other allied providers. With the help of Ian’s wife and business partner, Shelley Tsao, the Center for Healing and Expression has gone global, moving their main offices to Garden City, Idaho where in-person services are offered, and launching a global campaign to help others virtually via Telehealth Sessions and through program development.
The Center for Healing and Expression’s logo was designed by Ian’s sister-in-law, Yu Tsao. The hummingbird symbolizes the legacy Michele Newmark has left behind and this new evolution of the center will build more community in her spirit and loving embrace. The hummingbird reminds us to forever seek out the good in life and the beauty in each day. It is a reminder of how we expend our own energy, to be more present and playful, resilient and adaptable, to hold on to a lightness of being and enjoyment of life.
The Center for Healing and Expression is currently accepting new clients, and is also looking to grow the centers global virtual community of allied professionals.
