My name is Tammy; Metaphysical Practitioner

I have been practicing hands on healing almost my whole life. My first conscious memory is from when I was four years old, sitting on my Grandfathers back and ‘projecting magical healing light’ from my hands toward his neck. I could ‘see’ it, and fortunately, no one told me I couldn’t. My Grandfather would make a huge production of how much better he felt. He would stand and turn his neck from side to side saying it did not hurt anymore and that he could not even turn his neck before I worked my magic on him.

As I grew older, more and more family members would come to me with aches and pains, heartbreaks and headaches and ask me to take it away. I would hold my hands on them and see the ‘magical healing light’ come down from the sky and go through me, out my hands and to them. They called me “their little miracle worker”. It felt good to be able to help people.

At the age of 13 my life became trauma filled (a story for another time) and I lost the ability to help anyone, including myself. The magic…died, or so I thought. In reality, it had just slipped into a 22 year coma.

In the mean time from around the age of 21 I began a journey of formal education to help others. It seems of the 1000’s of healers I have met, most began their journey also after experiencing a life-shaking event of their own. I believe that being hurt strengthens the determination to bring healing and wholeness to others. The majority of people I meet have huge compassionate hearts and a genuine desire to end the suffering for others.

So many of us get caught up in the whirlwind of reaching out to others that we forget to take care of ourselves, or we don’t have time: or we didn’t achieve our own healing enough to think we deserved to end our suffering. We didn’t feel we were entitled to end our own personal sabotaging behaviors. We didn’t take the time to care for ourselves. {shhh…we don’t say these things out loud}. We forge headstrong into learning everything we can and many healers, as well as myself, have an impressive list of credentials, diplomas, certifications and degrees and we still have not taken care of ourselves.

I began my educational journey as Medical Assistant, Lab and x-ray technician and Emergency Medical Technician, from there I entered the military and began working on a Bachelors degree in Pre-Medicine with the intention of becoming a Physician. After I left the military I married a man who was still active duty in the military and he was abusive. With his abuse came behavioral problems with my children and I believed he could be helped with counseling. As a family we began counseling, seeing a Psychiatrist once a month and a Psychologist weekly. Because my husband was still in the military, he was not able to get a mental health diagnosis or take medications without hurting his career. Both of the children were given a diagnosis of ADHD and put on Ritalin, and I was given a diagnosis of Bi-polar and put on Ativan. Initially this seemed reasonable, but after about two months, I realized that this Doctor, this Psychiatrist, this educated man that I trusted; was drugging me and my children so we could tolerate being abused.

I tell this story only as a clarifier that I fired those Doctor’s and left my husband. I also changed my degree path from Pre-medicine to Psychology and Counseling because I never wanted anyone to have to go to Doctor’s like them again. I wanted to be a voice for those without a voice and to educate people on the dynamics of domestic violence.

I earned a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and a Master of Science in Counseling and began working as a Clinical Therapist and a case manager for a domestic violence program. While completing all the requirements for licensure, I realized that for insurance companies to pay you, you would have to give your clients a “major” diagnosis, not necessarily the one that would be most appropriate for them and their situation.

The insurance companies and other state departments also dictated what type of treatment the client received and for how long, not caring about what may be in their best interest. I felt gaining State licensure would force me to Counsel clients in a way that wasn’t congruent with my belief system or what I felt would be most appropriate for each individual in each individual’s circumstances.

I again redirected my goals. I studied in the metaphysical field and achieved a Doctorate of Religion and Philosophy to be able to work with clients under a “different banner”, one of spirituality and provide the assistance that would be the most beneficial to them. Within that context I learned and achieved skills in complimentary areas such as Hypnosis, Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP), Grapho-therapy, and Reiki, to name a few.

This brings us full circle back to the ‘magic’ of healing.

DISCLAIMER: I, T Conrad, am not a medical doctor and do not practice medicine. I do not diagnose, heal, treat disease or otherwise prescribe medication. I assist people in correcting energetic imbalances in their bio-field that assists the body to release its innate healing ability. When the energy of the body is balanced and moving correctly, the body’s innate natural energy heals itself. All healing is self-healing. I recommend that clients continue to see their regular medical doctors and follow their advice and my work is a complement to regular allopathic medicine. My spiritual energy work is not a substitute for conventional medical diagnosis or treatment for any medical or psychological condition. For such issues, you should seek the proper licensed physician or healthcare professional. I am a minister and my work is spiritually based and I believe all healing is spiritual in nature. I do not make any promises, warranties or guarantees about results of my work or of the energy sessions. The energy sessions help many people but like any modality it won’t work for everyone.
