I have been a client and fan of Heart & Hands for several years. Something that means a great deal to me is that the services are affordable for all and the healing takes place in a circle. I am disabled and a busy mother, so I experience a lot of isolation and I am always craving community. Even though I don’t meet my fellow pokees, to share the healing energy is a palpable bonus. And knowing I’m in a place where they value offering their services to people of all economic backgrounds is also healing for me.
To speak about the healing on a personal level is a little more abstract. I have a very challenging life and I’m not an “easy fix.” But I have experienced very deep energetic nurturing and peace in this space, with Christina and Susan and other practitioners over the years. I have been diagnosed with Stage 4 ovarian cancer (pretty healthy but still in my 5-year prognosis time-frame) and chemo messed up my body. H&H has been a part of my healing process. Writing this, I am determined to make more time to come back in soon!
