Learn How to Lead a Holistic Life

presented by Christine Ford, BSW


Pranic (energy) healing is becoming more popular, especially amongst the elderly population. One reason is that it's known to alleviate many discomforts associated with senior life. In addition to being a gentle and relaxing modality.

When applying the fundamentals of unconditional compassion through energy-based healing, many noticed the following benefits:

  • reduced muscle tension, stiff joints
  • increased circulation
  • increased vitality and mental alertness
  • accelerated healing from injuries and surgeries

Many are not aware of this technique and often shy away from a lack of understanding of the potential of this gentle approach. That is why I would like to offer a free informational session on its method and many benefits. 

A seventy-one-year-old client noted, “One has nothing to lose by trying it." In his case, it was his pain that became more manageable.
