As a Shamanic Practitioner, Tess works with her Spirit Teachers to bring healing and hope to clients through deep spiritual cleansing and renewal. The techniques she uses to facilitate health and healing are based on ancient wisdom and ceremony that has been used by medicine men and women for thousands of years. 


Each healing session is unique to the individual. Tess works directly with her Spirit Teachers and Power Animals to create an empowering, effective healing session customized for your needs.


Tess begins by placing a circle of protection around the two of you, followed by a short consultation to discuss your goals for the session. Next, she goes into a hypnotic state to consult with her Spirit Council for guidance. Oftentimes, your Spirit Guides or Angelic Beings are present to join the conversation. She will then return from her hypnotic state to discuss the Council's recommendation with you, and the two of you will discuss how to proceed.

Tess then merges with her Spirit Teacher(s) and journeys across time and space to bring spiritual healing to you. During this part of the session, Tess may use one or more ancient healing techniques that have been handed down to her by her teachers, including Soul Retrieval, Extraction, Power Animal Retrieval, Past Life Regression or other energy work.

After Tess completes her healing journey, she will share her experiences with you and deliver any messages she has been asked to pass on. You are encouraged to ask questions during this portion of the session, and you may wish to record this part of the session so that you can remember what is said.

Tess suggests that you have a friend or family member drive you to and from the healing session, because sometimes this intense energy work can leave you distracted or "spacey."
