Erin DeWitt
Erin began her journey in the healing arts with Reiki. As a Reiki Master Teacher, she enjoys teaching and watching students come into their own and realize their ability to heal themselves and others. She thrives on empowering people on their healing journey. It gives her great joy.

Erin's own desire for transformation and growth led her to The Reconnection®. When she clicked on the link to their website, she had no idea she was about to embark on a journey that would change her life. Erin took time out to play with Reconnective Healing and discovered that the spectrum of light and information being shared with this work is quite expansive. She feels that this work is so liberating and enjoys her role of being present, playful and observant while marveling at the healing that unfolds for her clients. Her practice has evolved as a result. She is excited to offer Reiki training with these expansive frequencies.

In 2010, Erin attended a 9 day Sound Healing Intensive with Jonathan Goldman and 90 other sound healers from around the world. The experience deepened her personal practice and the meditations she brings forth for her students, workshops, healing circles and some clients. Erin continues to explore the rich territory and healing power of the words we speak, think and our intentions through sacred sound. She is a member of the Sound Healers Association.

Her love for community has led her to co-create community healing circles where community members come together once a month and experience free healing sessions. She also facilitates a consciousness evolution in-depth study. She thrives on engaging community in thoughtful conversation inspired by these films and studies.

In addition to teaching Reiki, Erin shares workshops on, Sound Healing and The New Science on Healing with businesses, organizations and private groups. 

She lives in Duluth with her husband and two children. They are a source of inspiration and growth for her.

Christine Daniel

Christine is a certified Massage Therapist and Fitness Instructor.
She enjoys offering massages for athletes, pregnant women,
the elderly and Military members and their families, and for those in
hospice or suffering from chronic illnesses. 

She has a special place in her heart for those suffering from emotional turmoil and post traumatic stress disorder. Research shows that massage helps to re-wire the central nervous system which has been attacked by repeated stress and trauma. It actually changes neural pathways that have been set in a chronic "fight or flight" mode. Every massage opens a person to heal on deeper level, creating a space which is calm and still. It's here that we can find our ground and become whole again.

When not in the studio, Christine is often with her daughter Abby, her partner Steve, their dogs Otis and Max, friends and family. They are almost always outside, enjoying hiking, paddling, biking, inline skating, skiing, snowshoeing, rock climbing, or just reading a good book on the rocks at Brighton Beach. You can also find her frequenting coffee shops, reading her massage magazines or just a good suspense thriller.

Modalities offered: Swedish/relaxation/rejuvenation, deep tissue, sports massage, geriatric, pre and post-natal massage, aromatherapy, hot stone massage, and chair massage.

Christine can be reached at 218-349-8331 or by email at
