Claudia offers Focused Foot Reflexology, Complete Reflexology, Organic CBD Reflexology, and Traditional Copper Basin Ayurvedic Salt Foot Soaks.
Claudia lived in Germany for 12 years, where she experienced holistic healthcare. A person’s mind and spirit were treated as equally integral parts of health. She was able to witness the body’s natural ability to heal itself when given proper attention and care.
Upon returning to the US – that yearning to further explore holistic medicine remained constant. One day she attended an information night about reflexology, and the rest is history! She became a certified reflexology and has never looked back. Her goal is for every client to leave after a session feeling more relaxed and to help the client find balance with the body mind and spirit.
Integrated Energy Medicine, Transformational Coaching, Reiki
Katharine offers in-person Integrated Energy Medicine, Transformational Coaching, and Reiki. When Katharine was first introduced to Shamanic Journeying in 2005 she had no idea where it would ultimately take me. Before her first class, given by the Foundation of the Sacred Stream, she had no understanding of what a shaman was or did but was deeply interested. She kept signing up for more classes, adding Depth Hypnosis and Integrated Energy Medicine studies to the mix, trusting this was the path for her—and it most definitely was!
The information she learned and the experiences she encountered on her journey changed everything. She made huge, positive shifts in her life—and brought that rickety carnival ride to an end. Now, her life is smoother, calmer, and is living in a fully conscious way which puts her in a position to help others achieve the same. Katharine is committed to helping her clients learn how to live authentically and in full alignment with their true nature AND be able to meet any of life’s challenges from a relaxed, focused, and powerful center.
