Kris Sands



Kris Sands, Holistic Energy Practice, LLC

I have a foundation of Healing Touch for People and Animals, Reiki, Shamanism, Animal Guides, and Intuitive Processing. As well as individual sessions, I facilitate workshops for reintroducing children to healing energy and host group events for people of all ages to meet their Power Animal guides and understand the ease of meditation. My goal is to help my clients heal themselves: physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. I utilize my hands as magnets, clearing and restoring your energy field, thus accelerating your healing journey. Whether relaxation, peace and calm, increased sense of well-being, or transformation is your intent, my role is to help you activate your power of choice and manifestation. My history into holistic modalities began with my inability to say “no” to people, nor a willingness to invest in my own self-care. Subsequently, I developed fibromyalgia and over the course of seven years, created boundaries and dis-covered how well holistic approaches complimented western (allopathic) medicine. The fibromyalgia has been in remission for 5 years now. I enjoy working with children who have been labeled Spectrum, too sensitive, too active, aware, etc. I find these children are awake and through my Kids Intro to Healing Energy Workshop, they and their parents are able to find common ground in communicating, self-care and laughter and energy.
