Kathy Abugel Bio & Healing Statement


















"Healing occurs in many special and individual ways. It usually takes two, the person on the table and the person through whom the healing energy is channeled. I am fortunate in that I have been able to establish trust with my clients, and am educated and in tune enough to listen with both ears before touching anyone. One must be empathetic to each individual's situation and to know one's own limitations. Equally important, I know when to send a client to a medical or alternative practitioner. ...Providing a comfortable and trusting atmosphere enables the client to feel trusting enough to relax, breathe and help in their own healing. The client does the hardest work, trusting me, breathing out their aches and pains, wanting to be healthier than when we started." ..Kathy Abugel
