Carissa began teaching ballet and other forms of dance in 1999 and still teaches full time. Due to a chronic lower back injury that started in 2005, she began to study various healing arts. Seven years later, her back was healed but she continues to advance in the healing arts. She holds certifications in Qi Gong, Reiki and Crystal Reiki.
Carissa was recently certified in Qi Gong by DHA's Corinne Chaves. Her Qi Gong teaching focuses on well-being, strength, flexibility & vitality using forms such as Primordial, Dao Yin and Hard Qi Gong. She has also extensively studied Vinyasa and Yin yoga. She lives to serve with the goal of always spreading light, love, and grace.
Carissa was first attuned for Reiki in 2007 and received a Crystal Reiki attunement from International Reiki Master Lisa Powers in 2017. Crystal Reiki is designed to reduce stress and release tension in the body, allowing you to deeply relax and let go. Carissa uses rare crystals from all over the world to help amplify her Reiki to create balance and promote healing in the body. She performs gentle yet deep and powerful healings.
