Christine M. Salas, LCSW, HTP

I was born in Puerto Rico, grew up in New York and currently live in Portland, Oregon with my husband, daughter, and dog. I’m a Healing Touch Practitioner working towards becoming a Healing Touch Certified Practitioner (just need to find the time to study and take that certification exam!). I’m also a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, currently working at a nonprofit retirement community as the Director of Community Social Services, where I provide psychosocial support to older adults, including counseling, Healing Touch and facilitating support groups. Prior to working with older adults, I worked in the non-profit, mental health field for many years supporting people experiencing homelessness and those residing in Adult Residential Facilities.

I became interested in Healing Touch in early 2017. Although I enjoy helping people through traditional social work, I became interested in learning more about how our energy fields play a role in our overall well-being. And more so, how energy therapy could further enhance one’s ability to reach their goals, self-heal, and improve their overall well-being. I have found that Healing Touch has benefitted me personally, specifically with issues in sleep and stress, and it has also greatly enhanced my spiritual connection.  I offer a unique healing experience by combining my education and skills as a Social Worker with that of a Healing Touch Practitioner, to holistically help people self-heal in mind, body, and spirit. It’s our combined energies, in connection with Universal Energy, that makes the healing possible!
