HOLISTIC HEALING TECHNIQUES
Holistic healing is care for the whole person, which integrates mental, emotional, spiritual and physical wellness. On my intake forms and in my treatment room, I care about all aspects of your well-being and understand that all those parts of ourselves are interwoven. The most powerful healing sessions are the ones where a client is open to healing on all levels.
It became clear to me on a recent trip to Belize, Central America for continuing education with my mentor Dr. Rosita Arvigo that I need to treat emotional/spiritual health more in my sessions because I believe they are at the root of much of the stress and tension I’ve been treating in physical form…
In first-world American culture, we have gotten so used to sirens, honking horns, and too much technology, that most of us are living in a constant state of “susto” (fright) with chronically elevated cortisol levels (that compromises our immune systems, causes inflammation, weight gain and more). People are also living with “pesar” (grief) of loss from the last two years and there’s no easy answers for how and when living with this virus will transform. Taking time to slow down, be with our breath, elements of nature and divine connection is such a profoundly healing gift. I am grateful to have experienced the freedom that’s possible from utilizing simple rituals with heartfelt prayers and would be glad to support you, if you’d like me to integrate those holistic elements in working together.
Depending on which tools and techniques you are comfortable with, I can offer the eclectic combination of: chakra clearing, Reiki, and a traditional Maya water ritual utilizing plants (locally in-season) along with incense and prayers. The common thread in all healing is (divine) love.
If you feel drawn to healing of a spiritual/energywork nature, you may want to book the 2 hour massage with water ritual session to give yourself plenty of time to release what doesn’t serve you and integrate the healing received. Holistic healing techniques can also be included in other sessions by request.
I had a traumatic experience that left me feeling scattered and broken. With the help of Karen’s peaceful approach, and intuitive care, I am myself again, feeling healed and at peace.

Traditional water ritual “Itz Ku” in the Mayan tradition is adapted with prayers to suit each client’s own faith. Love is the essential element for all Spiritual Healing. It is a force that creates a connection or conduit through which divine healing can flow. Love is oneness, and oneness is a connection to all things. Through the use of plants collected with prayer (prior to the appointment), blessed water, copal incense and a ritual which includes prayers (personalized for the client’s faith) into the pulses, the Maya believe that “spiritual ailments” can be released from the body and auric field.
Reiki is an energy therapy, most often utilized through hands-on healing, where I transfer positive healing energy through the power of touch. It can also be directed from inches away from the body or even long-distance. It is channeled by the practitioner for a client’s well-being, providing healing on physical, emotional, mental and spiritual dimensions.
