Usui Reiki Master
PT, BScPT, BScKin, CAFCI
Christine attained her Kinesiology degree at the University of Waterloo before completing her degree in…
Physical Therapy at the University of Toronto. She has been practicing physiotherapy and acupuncture for nearly 20 years.
Christine is a gifted clinician, using manual therapy, acupuncture and comprehensive exercise programs to help clients aged 3 months to 90+ years regain normal function in a warm, fun environment. A passionate client advocate, Christine frequently cross refers to complementary health professionals and holistic practitioners; has extensive knowledge of the healthcare resources available in our Region; and guides clients through the bureaucracy that is often involved in accessing health care.
Christine discovered the benefits of Reiki as she was searching for holistic methods to assist her child who is diagnosed with ADHD. The entire family has benefitted profoundly from Reiki, by guiding the recipient to handle stressful situations and emotions in a healthier manner, improving communication and harmony both at school and within the family.
Studying Reiki in order to benefit her child’s health, and to resolve her own feelings of professional corporate burnout has inspired Christine to expand her practice into a more holistic setting where aspects of the entire person (mind, body and spirit) may be addressed.
Certified Emotional Freedom Technique Practitioner
Nancy Bruce, Registered Holistic Nutritionist and Certified Emotional Freedom Technique Practitioner…
is passionate about helping you live a happy, healthy and fulfilled life.
She would love to assist you in claiming your health, wealth and confidence. By helping you release unresolved issues from your past, you will be able to enjoy more abundance in the present. Nancy has a reputation for being able to get to the heart of what needs to be healed effectively and quickly.
When Nancy’s son was diagnosed with autism, there was not a lot of help available. Changing her son’s diet had a profound impact on his autistic behaviours. This inspired Nancy to study to become a Registered Holistic Nutritionist.
Along with diet, Nancy began to look at her belief systems and emotions. Once she began to release these, it enabled her to better support and empower her children. This process led her to become a Certified Emotional Freedom Technique Practitioner. Our emotions and beliefs hold us (and often our loved ones) back from living the life we are intended to live.
EFT has been found to assist with: Addictions, Anxiety, Cravings, Depression, Bladder infections, Autoimmune disorders, Weight loss, Financial blockages, Limiting beliefs, Pain, and many other issues!

Intuitive Channeler, Ohana Generational Healing Practitioner, Quantum Crystalline Energy Practitioner
Hello, my name is Lynn Baribault, and I am an Intuitive Channeler, Author, Certified Ohana …
Generational Healing Teacher/Practitioner, and Quantum Crystalline Energy Practitioner. Additionally, I offer very insightful One-on-One Channeled sessions, Oracle Card Readings, and I teach Intuition and Channeling classes.
Originally from Quebec City, I am fully bilingual and offer my services in both English and French. My first vision came to me when I was only 6 years old.
Since then, I have developed my intuition and my connection to Spirit. Having just recently retired from being an elementary teacher of 32 years, I am ready to teach classes which are more in line with my true purpose!
I am the proud author of “How to Raise Your Children with Wisdom and Awareness”. In this book, I share the wisdom I channeled from Spirit Guides, Archangels, and Ascended Masters who, from above, have set to motion a series of shared insights, exercises, and prayers to guide parents and/or guardians in this important role of raising children. I am currently working on my second and third books to be published again with Balboa Press, a division of Hay House. My second book will be featured in the Hay House online catalogue as I was chosen by Balboa Press as one of their visionary authors. I can’t stop pinching myself!
Other healing projects include using Healing Grids I was downloaded with, which use crystals and a body scan to ascertain and balance energies. As well, I am in the process of creating my own deck of oracle cards, having channeled the names and meaning of the 25 card deck. Spirit is AMAZING and I am truly blessed to have been gifted so many skills which I am so happy to share on a full time basis!
I am also in the process of taking a Death Doula course which will allow me to accompany families and their loved ones as the individual transitions to the other side. Being able to hear, feel and see Spirit, I hope to offer guidance and peace of mind, heart and soul. I enjoy the opportunity to grow, learn, trust and share the Wisdom of the Spirit World!
Feel free to contact me if you want to chat and see which services best suit your current needs as I offer healing for all ages from children, teens, adults and the elderly.

BA, RMT Registered Massage TherapisT
Vanesa has always been equally passionate about the arts and sciences and their relationship with one another.
She first achieved an Honours Degree in English Literature and Rhetoric at the University of Waterloo in 2014. After a stint in digital marketing, she then went on to obtain an Advanced Diploma in Massage Therapy at Mohawk College where she found a passion for massage therapy.
After successfully passing her provincial exams to become a Registered Massage Therapist in August 2017, she has delved deeper in the field since then, developing an interest in concussion management, headache/migraine relief, and women’s pelvic health.
Her holistic and collaborative approach to massage therapy gives her clients the experience necessary to not only treat the source of your pain, but the education and tools necessary to help manage their pain and stresses beyond the treatment room.
In between seeing clients, she utilizes her literary and rhetoric background to help bridge the gap between massage therapy and its role in the healthcare field as an evidence-based option for pain and stress management.
She does this through engaged advocacy in the community and through her Instagram platform and website, Encircled Healing.
When she is not in the treatment room, you can find Vanesa cooking up a storm with her partner and enjoying delicious eats or hanging out with Tulsi the cat!”
