With Shamanic roots in Iceland and a relaxed Lutheran upbringing, Hildur's spirituality is best described as Interfaith Evolution-based Cosmology infused with deep Ecology. She’s deeply committed to ongoing studies of Buddhist and Yogic philosophies. She's especially interested in working with ways to resolve trauma related to eco-anxiety and the return to Earth-based traditions as The Way to heal.

Currently, Hildur is especially inspired by Lama Liz Monson and Lama Willa Miller at the Natural Dharma Fellowship. She’s committed to Ecosattva training with One Earth Sangha.



In 2005 Hildur received her PhD from the Max-Planck Institute of Biophysics, Department of Membrane Biology, where she studied cellular bioenergetics.

When we nurture the interconnectedness of the web of life and tune in with the flow of nature we heal that broken connection between body, heart and mind that creates pain and suffering in today's society, reconnecting to our true selves and purposes.

Mission and philosophy

"When the root is firm, the branch will flourish” - Chinese Proverb.



My approach is top down (from mind to the body) and consists in reviewing your dis-ease history and discussing and implementing a personalized home self care program. Each visit will include a series of body adjustments, fine needles insertion in the body, breathing combined with visualization exercises and herbal/dietary prescriptions to reinstall the balance in your three bodies - physical, metabolic/energetic and mental/spiritual. Ultimately, my method will trigger a self awakening process – called “immunity” when referring to the body level or “consciousness” when referring to the mental aspect – that will restore and regenerate the self regulating mechanisms in your body and life. During your first visit to the office I will go over your entire medical history and review any lab tests or other medical records you have. At that time I will make an individual assessment of what specifically is imbalanced in your case and address the root of that imbalance with diet and lifestyle recommendations. Just as each patient is unique, so too is each treatment unique - no two patients receive exactly the same protocol.

I have a special interest in: Inflammation and Degeneration, Psychoneuroimmunology and Neurological conditions.
