Betty Young, CHTP (Certified Healing Touch Practitioner) Reiki III practitioner and Shamanic Healer

Betty Young, CHTP

After my daughter sustained a traumatic brain injury in a car accident at the age of 22, I became emotionally distressed and physically depleted. I was dealing with stress that threatened to undermine my active life.  (My daughter is fine now.)  I visited an energy healer who used both Reiki and Healing Touch and felt alive again for the first time in months.  She cleared my energy field and opened my closed chakras. Right away I had more energy and felt great again.

Then a deeply moving emotional and spiritual healing occurred for me when I went to a Shamanic healer. The sessions with her helped me release anxious feelings and regain a sense of wholeness and re-connection with life.

After these amazing healing experiences I was drawn to learn the gentle yet powerful techniques and ancient healing arts that helped me. Helping others find natural and effective relief from physical, emotional and spiritual stress is now my life’s work.

Please know that you are not alone.  If you’d like to see how energy work or shamanic healing can help you relieve stress and anxious feelings, please call me at 515-292-3801.

Warmly,  Betty Young

My training:

I am a Certified Healing Touch Practitioner (CHTP).  The Healing Beyond Borders (formerly Healing Touch International) certification program consists of five levels of learning and a supervised apprenticeship with intense study for one year after level four.  Healing Touch is an energy healing modality, with techniques for clearing and balancing the energy field and chakras and calming the mind.

I’m also a Reiki III practitioner, trained by Reiki Master Deb Kline of Ames Iowa.  Reiki is  a gentle energy healing method.

Carole Meade of Des Moines, Iowa trained me in Shamanic Healing.  During my two year apprenticeship I learned to work closely with my power animals and spirit guides doing soul retrieval, compassionate depossession, mediumship, energy extraction, shamanic journeys and spiritual healing.
