About Betty



Betty Esthelle, RN, 87 years young, will celebrate her 88th birthday on April 25, 2015. Betty is a registered nurse who became a psychotherapist, then a healer, then a teacher of healers.

In 1984, as a result of her involvement in healing herself after a diagnosis of lymphoma and a near death experience, Betty was inspired to expand her work and originate Body Enlightenment. Betty was able to induce a spontaneous remission and has been cancer free since 1986.

While Body Enlightenment has helped many people and can be learned by everyone, graduates of Betty's 3 year professional certification program up to now have been exclusively medical doctors, psychologists and psychotherapists, all in Europe. In 2010, Betty is again teaching for certification here in the United States.

Betty's unique, creative, gentle approach includes expertise in hands-on deep healing, profound transformation of trauma into wisdom, and inner child healing with resolution and empowerment.

Betty is well trained in both traditional medicine and esoteric healing. Among the teachers and methods she has studied are: Oscar Ichazo, Taoist Grand Master Share K Lew, Ilana Rubenfeld, Rabbi Zalman Schacter-Shalomi, Leonard Orr, Moshe Feldenkrais, Native American traditions, dance, art, movement, nutrition, shamanism, biofield therapeutics, Gestalt therapy, and other healing modalities.

Rabbi Zalman Schacter-Shalomi said, “Betty introduced me to my bones in a way that made it easy for me to speak to my soul!”

St. Germain of The Ascended Masters calls her the "Grand Dame of Healing," and Chief Joseph honors and sponsors her work. Many famous and not so famous people have benefited by being on Betty's table. It has been said that a session with Betty is magical and transformational - every time.

Betty relocated to Vancouver, WA in 1999 from San Francisco to be nearer to her 3 grandchildren.
