About Casandra K. MacAlan

Casandra's gifts lie in helping others self-actualize their fullest expression of individuality and personhood, shamelessly, joyously and spiritually on earth. ~Emily

I am committed to your long term health and well-being. I have been studying healing, anxiety and trauma since 1998, dedicating my health practice to finding relief for chronic pain sufferers, and helping clients explore their mind-body connection.  It's my passion and my life's work, and I'm so grateful to love what I do!
