Hey there divine being! So glad you’ve found your way to my bio.
My name is Kristen and I began my health and science career in 2003 at The University of Arizona where I received a BS and MS in Physiology. I have worked in a variety of healthcare positions including Behavioral Health Technician, renal researcher and finally landing in oncology drug development for cancer patients. However, over the past several years I began utilizing Eastern holistic wellness tools as an integrative approach to achieving optimal health and relaxation. The goal is to naturally treat the whole person; mind, body, spirit, and emotions in addition to any allopathic care (modern medicine) you may already be receiving.
It is my opinion, that you are already whole and complete! It’s just that trauma and other negative experiences can cause disturbances in vital energy flows possibly resulting in us feeling down or maybe even just plain drained! Receiving Yoga Nidra, Reiki, crystal therapy, and sound healing, can assist in making energetic shifts, recharging your batteries, and leading you back to the road of good vibrations.
All of these techniques are found in yoga studios across the country today. It is through their use along with my intuition, I define my craft as Energy Alchemy; a magical process of energetic transformation that awakens us to higher states of awareness through relaxation. Of course your active participation and intention for change cannot be emphasized enough in this process. After all, where intention goes energy flows!
More on a couple of the techniques that I use; Yoga Nidra is defined in Sanksrit as “yogic sleep,” which can be somewhat of a misnomer, as you aren’t actually sleeping. It’s a special type of guided yogic meditation where your brain waves slow down to the level just above sleep. It is here where you can reach your subconscious mind and achieve shifts in vibration that trickle down into your conscious mind and physical body. Universities like Stanford and Harvard have actually done quite a bit of research on yoga nidra and measured some pretty astounding physiological results in people including reduction in cortisol levels (a stress hormone) and increases in GABA (a happy hormone) among many other benefits! I also practice Reiki, a Japanese hands-on healing technique for stress reduction, relaxation, and a restoration of the body’s energy flows. You can read more about these techniques, along with crystal therapy and sound healing on my website.
I invite you to join me for a relaxing session today. We will discuss your experience with my modalities, areas of concern, your intentions, and expectations for your session. All techniques used during sessions are custom tailored for you!
