Bernhard Staschik

Alternative healing modalities have been my life’s passion since early youth. Influenced by Eastern thought, my focus today is on healing the body through accessing and working through the human energy field, the aura, and the chakra system and the stream of consciousness constituting the essence of life. My goal is to establish a new paradigm of healing where health and well-being are measured in the quality of the internal work done toward realizing our true nature. My experience with energy healing confirms that by eliminating the root causes of illness through this inner work, many of today’s illnesses will just cease to be. Energy Healing is not the wave of the future, but is very much present in my healing work. Athletes, triathletes, and cyclists, are amongst the clients finding relief in my sessions, through physical massage and energy releases I incorporate to help them break through physical/energetic barriers to improving their performance.
