ABOUT MARVA JOLLY
"Every journey begins with a single step." -- Maya Angelou
Let's take that first step together!
My name is Marva Jolly and my career as a holistic nutritionist sprang out of my own health journey. For many years, my own health was plagued with auto-immune thyroid condition called Hashimoto's, adrenal issues, extreme fatigue, weight gain, severe migraines and even fibromyalgia. One very insightful holistic practitioner tested and diagnosed with several food allergies and sensitivities. Through elimination of these foods, my health began to return.
I practiced as a licensed Civil Engineer for over 13 years and still consult part time. After being laid off in 2011, I began seeking a new fulfilling career. My personal health challenges inspired me to pursue a career in Nutrition Therapy. I graduated in 2016 and am practicing as a Master Nutrition Therapist (MNT) from Nutrition Therapy Institute in Denver. My education combined a knowledge of anatomy and physiology and how nutrition supported digestion and many other body functions from a holistic perspective.
I also learned the value of many alternative healing modalities in my own health journey and throughout nutrition school. Healing Touch energy work provided aspects of self-discovery, healing and spiritual growth for me personally.I was drawn to expand knowledge and share this healing modality with others. I recently completed my Level 5 training and am proud to now be a Healing Touch Practitioner. I will soon be applying for certification.
My approach to nutrition and health emphasizes the importance of evaluating each individual from a holistic perspective, both energetically and physically, and supplying energy and nutrients to balance your health.
I would be honored to partner with you to balance your energy, improve your health, and maintain your health. We can work together to reduce your sugar cravings, develop a diet for your specific health needs, or help you find tasty alternatives for gluten free or dairy free diets. I can offer you guidance and nutritional therapy based on your individual needs to help you forward on your health journey.
My practice also encompasses Healing Touch energy work either separately or in combination with nutrition therapy to allow for more complete health and well being. I am happy to work with clients one-on-one for Healing Touch energy sessions. The goal or intention of Healing Touch is to restore harmony and balance in the energy system. The benefits can reduce pain, anxiety, stress, and provide support of the energetic and physical body to promote healing.
I have had a very close connection with animals since childhood and recently realized that I have the ability to communicate with them. I am honing my communication skills with animals to better understand their needs. This passion for animals and desire to heal them led me to complete training and through the Healing Touch for Animals program. I am happy to work with your animal(s) to reduce stress, change behaviors, or to help balance their energy systems and allow them to heal.
My intention is to combine my knowledge, heart, passion for health, and my personal experience to compassionately and successfully support my clients through their health journey. You can reach me through my:
