Suzie Engel MS Midwifery RN HTP
I have been a nurse since 1982 specializing in mental health and hospice care. I have had an interest in complementary medicine since the early 80's when I learned Therapeutic Touch. I have also received training in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction from Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn and learned EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) from the founder, Gary Craig. I received my Healing Touch Certification in July 2012. As a volunteer, I provide Healing Touch to patients at Elizabeth House, Hendersonville's onsite hospice. I especially enjoy helping people who are in any kind of Transition-such as health changes, aging, divorce, loss of a loved one, and other life changes.
I love doing the work of healing touch! It feeds my soul to have a connection with the spiritual and physical energy of healing. I have been a nurse for over 40 years and have a Masters degree in Midwifery. Birthing energy brings me joy- whether it is assisting in bringing new life into the world or birthing new thought patterns or ideas or helping you through any of life's many transitions. I ask God/Spirit to work through me.
I also has a degree in Religious Studies and am a Universal Life Church Minister. Taking the Advanced Hara Alignment Class has lead me to work with clients in the healing of life and trauma issues. I have worked with pregnant women or women who have had fertility issues. I have found that distance healing (working with clients she is not in direct contact with) is another healing touch energy technique that is very successful. Suzie loves helping bring a stronger spiritual connection for her clients and the divine.
