BSc, HHPR, Reiki Master Teacher, Healer

Sandra is the founder and CEO of the Canadian Healing Institute. As a Holistic Health Practitioner, Naturotherapist and Reiki Master, Sandra believes that the key to health is the physical and energetic (unseen) connection of the body with “mind body medicine”; the basis behind Holistic Health. Western medicine is aware that our individual spiritual, mental and emotional factors affect our state of health, but little in the form of Western medicine, addresses the body as a whole or “holistically”. Her vision with the Canadian Healing Institute is to look beyond simply treating a symptom and to provoke positive change on many levels of a person’s overall quality of life as well as a community around her.

Sandra understands that the the body, mind and soul work together with each part contributing equally to the whole person. When balanced, this system enables the natural flow of energy throughout the body, without blockages or resistance. When imbalanced, this natural flow is interrupted, as energy “gets stuck” and stagnation surfaces. Sandra is interested in helping clients make a positive shift in their lives by supporting their bodies amazing healing capabilities and bringing any imbalance into alignment to its natural state of functioning. She is well-versed in the area of chronic pain and trauma, for Sandra experienced 15 years of it before she turned experiencing a complete miracle with holistic and spiritual interventions. Within a 6 month period Sandra was able to improve movement, memory and brought clarity back into her life as she was able to be free of any pain medication.This sent Sandra on a quest for knowledge and understanding of what healing was? And how the vibration and frequency of everything around oneself, even our thoughts and emotions are the building blocks of our cells functions. Energy medicine is a big component of Sandra's tool box in healing as a result from the last 10 years of research and discovery in this area.

With the use of hands on therapeutic holistic modalities, including Reiki, Acupressure, Reflexology, specialized Cupping Therapy, Sound and Light therapy, Sandra can help a person in their life transformation of moving forward with less pain, less stress and more happiness. Sandra's naturally compassionate and loving nature will support and guide one in finding the way to reconnect with themselves, while healing the body as a whole. Having Sandra’s guidance in helping the body’s healing capability, along with laughter, nature, music, great food and exercise can be inspiring effective. The ultimate goal of aligning the body, mind and soul assures a healthier, joyful, more balanced state of being. She welcomes you to embark on a journeys towards improved health and wellness.

Sandra has a Degree in Biological Sciences and Psychology with over 30 years experience in the Cardiovascular field. She also acquired a Holistic Health Practitioner Diploma from Grant MacEwan University, Certification from the Canadian School of Naturotherapies and Spiritual Development, as well as Certification from Darmadhatu Institute and International Cupping Therapy Association. Sandra also has many associated certifcates in Energy Medicine, including Touch Therapy, Quantum Touch Animal Reiki and Komyo Reiki Kai.

Winston (Brad)

Hypnotherapist, EFT Specialist

Brad is one of those rare individuals who has always known deep within that “following your passion” is more than a simple quote, it is his way of life. He started his career by pursuing his love of music, and successfully enjoyed being a part of multiple bands, while also being involved in other areas of the music business. As life evolved, new passions developed and Brad discovered the power of hypnosis. He let his heart guide him and graduated from the Alberta Institute of Hypnosis with their Master Hypnosis Training, and also obtained his Certification as a Clinical Hypnotherapist.

While providing clients with healing as a hypnotherapist, Brad continued to follow his curiosity by furthering his education in specialized hypnotherapy courses, and came upon another fascinating subject of study that crossed his path: EFT (also known as Emotional Freedom Technique developed by Gary Craig).

Emotional Freedom Technique not only helped relieve his own neck pain from a pinched nerve, but it gave him full range of motion within about 20 minutes! Brad can honestly admit that before this experience, he had his doubts and only tried this “tapping technique” out of respect to the friend suggesting it. The fact that he did not have to believe in EFT for it to work effectively was an extra incentive to learn more about this healing modality. A new passion was born and EFT became an exciting field of research for Brad. Brad then spent the next 7 years going to every event and workshop Gary Craig developed.

EFT is based on tapping the beginning points in our energy meridians and is sometimes referred to as “Psychological Acupressure”. It aims to achieve physical and emotional well-being by releasing the challenging blockages in our energy system which have been created through limiting beliefs and behavior. It is becoming well-known that emotional disharmony can lead to many unpleasant physical manifestations which can ultimately result in an inability to live life favorably. EFT is effective at treating a variety of symptoms including anxiety, depression, lack of confidence & self-esteem, phobias, chronic illness and even addictive behaviors. It is a non-invasive treatment which involves the use of fingertips rather than needles to tap on the end points of energy meridians that are situated just beneath the surface of the skin.

Brad is extremely skillful, thoughtful and discretely observant in his approach to handling any sensitive topics a client may need to address while guiding them through this tapping technique. Throughout his practice of 13 years, Brad has observed that his clients get favorable results well over 90% of the time, which is phenomenal to say the least. He is so passionate about these remarkable outcomes, that he guarantees his sessions or will refund the cost should the client not be satisfied. It is still important to note that Brad is not a medical doctor, nor do these techniques discredit the medical and psychotherapeutic professions, but rather serve to assist in a holistic healing process.
