After my daughter sustained a traumatic brain injury in a car accident when she was 22, I became emotionally distressed and physically depleted. I was dealing with stress that threatened to undermine my active life.  (My daughter is fine now.)

I visited an energy healer who used both Reiki and Healing Touch and felt alive again for the first time in months.  She cleared my aura and opened my closed chakras. Right away I had more energy and felt great again.  I visited her regularly until I learned how to balance and clear my own energy.

Then a deeply moving emotional and spiritual healing occurred for me when I went to a Shamanic healer. The sessions with her helped me release life-long anxiety and old emotional baggage.  Soon after, I began to regain a sense of wholeness and re-connection with life.  I continue to visit her whenever I feel the need.

After these life-altering healing experiences I was drawn to learn the gentle yet powerful techniques and ancient healing arts that helped me flourish in life again.

Because of my experiences, I want to let you know that it is possible to heal difficult challenges and overcome obstacles in your life.  When you are dedicated to following your healing path wherever it leads, you can thrive, take charge of your health and well-being, and become who you’re meant to be.

“Healing is an unfolding process, not a one-time event.” 

Know that you are not alone. There is help available.  If you’d like to see how shamanic healing and energy healing can help you please contact me here, or call me at 515-292-3801.

Warmly,  Betty Young

Certified Healing Touch Practitioner (CHTP).

Healing Touch is an energy healing method, with techniques for clearing and balancing the aura and chakras and calming the mind.  The Healing Beyond Borders (formerly Healing Touch International) certification program consists of five levels of learning and a supervised apprenticeship with intense study for one year after level four.  I’ve been certified in hEALING tOUCH since 2013.
