Cris was born with the gift of healing without touching the body.  Cris is also an empath.

By Dr. Judith Orloff M.D.

((author of the Empath Survival Guide)
An empath is someone who is a highly tuned instrument.  Intuition is the filter through which they experience the world.  Empaths are naturally giving people.  Spiritually attuned and good listeners, it is a rare gift which makes them what they are, Empaths.  Empaths can connect to other beings and animals on a deep level that goes beyond logic and words.  They fully see and feel other's past, present, and future.  Empaths feel others' physical pain and can often sense someone's intentions. Empaths have a rare trait that makes them even more powerful, these people are experts in human psychology.  Empaths absorb all sorts of energy.  They need to recharge a lot and when doing this they seek solitude.

Dear Cris,

We are very excited to present a new concept in our July Whole Life Times:  Women with their Issues.
