Meet the Practitioners
Reiki Master Megin Flanagan has had a lifelong connection to the practice of reiki, growing up in a family with a strong lineage of energy workers. Reiki refers to the universal energy that is inside all of us. Megin recalls, “I fell in love with practicing reiki because it is so universal; I like the idea that through reiki I empower and foster within myself positive points of view and holistic well-being”. She notes that the powerful benefits of reiki can be vast. “Some things in our lives stick with us, bother us, and our connection to this universal energy gets ignored.” The gentle art of reiki can help to release these energetic blocks and restore balance. “I believe, because of what I’ve learned, that we all have the ability to achieve holistic wellness”. As a Reiki Master Practitioner, Megin assists individuals in reaching this goal.
Reiki Master/Teacher, Certified Crystal Healer, IET Practitioner
Christine Goyette, RMT, CCH is a long time friend and supporter of the Western Mass Wellness Center. She has always held an interest in crystals and the energetic power of the earth. In her 20s, Christine was able to see the ways in which crystals helped her son who was growing up with Asperger's Syndrome.
In 2015, she began pursuing her dream of creating jewelry from stones and silver. This was not long before Christine also commenced her educational journey towards certification as energy work practitioner. She studied Usui Reiki and Integrated Energy Therapy under Christine Bailey, RMT & IET Master / Instructor. She also attained certification as a Crystal Healer through the Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy. For Christine, the coursework served as a strong confirmation of the science behind the power of these therapeutic modalities.
Today she offers energy work (Reiki and IET) in combination with Crystal Healing Therapy.
Crystal Healing Therapy is the deeply relaxing and rejuvenating practice of placing crystals and stones on the body. Crystals add an additional layer of energy to amplify the beneficial impact of sessions. These benefits include balancing the chakras, clearing of the aura, realignment of energetic frequencies, and removal of emotional and energetic blocks.
As a Massage Therapist and Reiki Master Practitioner, Kathi knows the importance of the body, mind, and spirit connection. She has always held a desire to help people. Kathi enjoys combining massage with energy work, which provides her client with a complete body, mind and spirit experience. Kathi is a Nationally Certified Massage Therapist and is licensed in both Massachusetts and Connecticut. She is a member of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA).
Kathi's journey as an energy worker began in 2013, when she took an Usui Reiki I course. After experiencing the benefits of Reiki for herself, she decided to pursue Reiki II. She continued practicing Reiki on herself and her family, and also began practicing long distance Reiki on her daughter, who was living in South America at that time. Taking a class in essential oils about that same time, she became very interested in the benefits of 100% pure essential oils, and gave some to her daughter to use in South America and her daughter now uses them for cleansing, aromatherapy and even as perfume! In the Spring of 2017, Kathi completed her Reiki Master Practitioner Training.
Kathi's passion for holistic wellness eventually led her to practice Massage Therapy at Western Mass Wellness Center. As she continues on her wellness journey, Kathi integrates holistic principles into her practice which helps to bring balance and foster well-being for all of her guests at the center.
