An interview with owner of Nourish Center or Asheville, Valerie Holbert.

In this episode we discuss the history of Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy and how it differs from other forms of oxygen therapy. We also talk about who benefits from the therapy, how many sessions are needed, and whether or not it’s possible to do from home.

You don’t want to miss out on this wonderful therapy!

Valerie Holbert, NCB-HWC, RYT-500 is a National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach and Registered Yoga Teacher, Reiki Master and Hyperbaric Technician.

Working through her own past traumas and learning to be present and regulate her nervous system have been an integral part of her own healing journey—physically, emotionally and spiritually. Through mindfulness practices, self care practices and yoga along with changes in diet, lifestyle and stress management, Valerie changed her relationship with and experience of chronic pain, autoimmune issues and a Fibromyalgia diagnosis in her 20s. It’s been an ongoing journey since then adding ancestral healing, reiki and energy work to the mix. She strives through her work to help others release what is no longer serving and connect to their most authentic and vital selves.

In her new practice, Nourish Center Asheville, Valerie brings an additional offering—Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. Her husband suffered a traumatic brain injury in 2021 and immediately after coming home from the ICU she drove to Atlanta and rented a chamber. After seeing the benefits for his healing and learning of the many benefits, she purchased a new tank to share with clients here in WNC.

She believes it’s important to nourish our souls and our cells, and that we all need support with both to truly find clarity, reconnect to our own inner knowing and implement steps to reach goals.

When she is not in the office, you’ll likely find her kayaking on a local river or lake or walking trails within view of the water, walking her crazy dogs, staring at the moon and clouds or spending time with her husband and teenage daughter.
