My philosophy as a healer is to help my clients set themselves free. Healing on all levels is available to anyone and everyone through awareness and self-compassion.
Certified BodyTalk Practitioner, B.Ed (Music), B.Ed, (Arts Ed), Reiki Master
I have been a musician since age 4 and grew to quickly love the Arts, as they gave me a chance to embrace my most vulnerable self and to continally evolve through creative expression. Following 13 years of training and 7 years of post-secondary education, I was privileged to teach the Arts in the public school system for 13 years. As I continued to work on deep healing through meditation, Reiki treatments & training, as well as counselling and extensive self-reflective study, my career path slowly shifted away from elementary education towards healing.
One of my core beliefs is that the arts are accessible for everyone, regardless of age or ability. I am deeply passionate about using the Arts to bridge the gap between the mind and the body – a connection we often ignore as we scurry about our daily lives. Our body literally carries us through our entire life – how often do you genuinely honour and engage with yours? Do you remember jumping with joy and dancing with abandon when you were young? I watch my 2 young boys do that every day and I know that inner child lives within the rest of us, just waiting to be set free! My absolute favorite time to do this is on the Full Moon – an ideal time for letting go of anything that doesn’t serve you and the best time to let loose and move your body! I hope to offer these dance events as soon as it is safe to do so.
I am forever thankful for my strong and caring partner who has supported me in the pursute of numerous healing modalities and given me the space to shift in countless ways, all while sharing care of our 2 young boys and more often than not, taking over the bulk of the household responsibilities while doing his own deep inner work.
I found my way into sewing in 2017. It gave me a way center myself and it greatly offset the busyness of teaching and raising a young family. I wanted to make both unique creations and items that weren’t really available to people that needed them. I love creating weighted blankets that are exactly what each customer wants – whether that is the exact weight they need or pattern they want or the perfect combination of crystals added into the fill to support their individuality!
Another way I stay in balance is through BodyTalk. I found this modality in 2011 and the sessions I received as a new mother saved me and brought me back to myself when I would fall out of balance. They allowed me to heal at all levels over the next 10 years – physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. You can find more specifics about my treatments & the issues I was able to overcome on my other website BodyTalk Unlimited. I knew my path someday would be to shift into the practitioner role and start offering treatments to others and as a June 2020, I was finally able to realize that goal!
I am now offering BodyTalk sessions in person or through distance and am blessed to finally have come back to my home space after so many years out in the work force. I continue to balance treatment work with my committments to my family, friends, the Arts and continual self healing .
I look forward to working with you! Christina
