Christina Rossi

Healing Arts Practitioner, Reiki and Polarity Therapy

Christina Rossi has been a registered nurse for 23 years, and is passionate about holistic health and wellness. She is a registered polarity practitioner, a Reiki practitioner level 3, and trained in teaching imagery and meditation in the clinical setting.

My practice revolves around the intention of the client.  I feel that holding a safe space in important in the healing process.  During my sessions, I will ask each client to set an intention, and then hold that intention whether we are speaking, meditating, or doing energy work.  I provide aromatherapy as requested depending on the needs of the client.  I check in with my clients throughout each session.

When I am not working, I am spending time with my family, practicing yoga, hiking, biking, or gardening.  I look forward to meeting new clients and holding space for healing.
