My life shifted in high school. I wanted to feel better about myself and began that search by exploring what I was putting in my body. As a teenager my main priority was to lose weight, so I started to see a nutritionist. My basic goals at the time were achieved, but what I didn’t know was that I was beginning a new direction in my life. One towards a health-centered lifestyle.
I wanted to feel good. Not just physically, but all around.
And so began my exploration.
In my early adult years I explored the different schools of thought on nutrition and how it affects our health. Through personal experience I have chosen to live a vegetarian and gluten-free lifestyle. I do not advocate any one way of feeding ourselves, but I am happy to say that the choices I have made really work for me.
While living in Florence, Italy I became an avid vegetarian cook exploring multi-cultural nutrition and cuisine, and once I moved to Key West, Florida I expanded my skills to become an at-home gluten-free baker.
In addition to nutritional well-being, I also began to explore healing modalities. From 2002 to 2005 I completed the 3 levels of training with Reiki Master Teacher Nancy Curran to become a Reiki Master. I have been practicing Reiki since 2002 and over the years have incorporated Tibetan Buddhist practices with my Reiki sessions. I have been a student both Ellen Booth Church and Lama Tsultrim Alione since 2006 and feel honored to have received the gifts of the teachings from these amazing masters.
In 2010 I became a Licensed Massage Therapist educated at New Mexico Academy of Healing Arts in Santa Fe, NM. I was trained in Swedish Massage and have been introduced to Thai Massage, Lomi-Lomi, Reflexology, Shiatsu, Ortho-Bionomy and Spa Treatments.
And when I am not doing all of these fun activities, I am also a Web and Graphic Designer.
Each element of my life-education has brought me gifts that I am excited to share with clients and fellow friends on the path.
to your health,
Christine M. Curran
