About Christine

Christine Marie Salas was originally born in Puerto Rico, grew up in New York, lived in San Diego for 12 years and currently lives in Portland, Oregon, since August 2015. She lives with her husband, Jared, dog Chewbacca (Chewy), and cat Calabasa (Basa) and is expecting her first child in March 2018.  Christine currently is a Health Touch Practitioner Apprentice working towards becoming a Certified Health Touch Practitioner in 2018.  Christine is also a Social Worker, working at a nonprofit retirement community in downtown Portland as the Director of Social Services where she provides psychosocial support to seniors, including one-on-one counseling, facilitates support groups, and provides resources. Christine is also currently working on becoming a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with completion in 2019.  Christine became interested in Healing Touch in early 2017 because although she enjoys helping people through traditional social work, she felt that she wanted to do more related to energy work that could further enhance people’s ability to reach their goals, self-heal, and improve their overall well-being. Christine has found that Healing Touch has been beneficial to her personally, specifically with issues in sleep and stress, and that it has enhanced her spiritual connection.  Christine looks forward to combining her education and skills as a Social Worker and a Healing Touch Practitioner Apprentice to holistically help people self-heal in mind, body and spirit.
