You have an intuitive knowing that your life could be happier, healthier physically, mentally and spiritually. And you have been trying to find a way to achieve this balance.

I love coming in. I always feel so much better after seeing you. When I first came to you, my balance was really bad. Within two treatments I felt 10 years younger. I can't thank you enough. Love, Sheila

As a first timer, she immediately made me feel safe and at ease. Her intuition and touch goes beyond anything I have experienced. I felt that my life has been changed for the better. I plan to return on a very regular basis as I work towards being whole again. Thank you so much!

There is no way to convey the benefits one can receive from seeing Celeste. Her work touches upon many levels. If you are reading this because you are trying to decide if you should make an appointment. Stop contemplating and Do It! You will not be disappointed. She is delightful, professional, and most of all a true healer.

Hi, It was great as always. I felt so much more relaxed when I left. Would have been good if I went home and slept, but had dinner with a friend first. Pain is back this morning, but not as bad. I wonder if somehow I'm hurting it when I sleep. Thank you so much!!!
