She specializes in Swedish massage, Craniosacral Therapy, and Reiki. Patty's training with these have taught her that the body will tell you what is wrong if you let it. She says massage therapy is the best to get the body back on track and gain some insight as to what it may need to be for future care. She calls this Body Awareness. When you schedule with Patty you probably won't hear anything you don't already know, but it's confirmation of what you may have been thinking.

Sandy Klein, CNHP

In 1996, I got my Cosmetology license and realized the need for safer products in the industry. My love of facials took me around the country...getting esthetic education and exploring skincare companies that manufactured chemical-free products that are safe for people and the planet.

I have had many clients over the years share their story of a health challenge, which inspired me to become a Certified Natural Health Practitioner.  This certification encompasses Aromatherapy, Homeopathy, Herbal Medicine, and Holistic Nutrition. I also became a  Reiki Master and certified in  Reconnective Healing.

I have  lived an organic lifestyle at home for 45 years. I have also helped several people with cancer and degenerative diseases. I have facilitated classes on healthy eating and lifestyle here in N. KY and on the west coast. I also opened an organic hair salon in Denver 10 years ago. Cities such as Denver, Evergreen, & Beaver Creek, Colorado as well as Victor, Idaho and Jackson Hole, Wyoming have been my home.

Since returning to Northern Kentucky, I have received another Advanced Nutrition Certification and got certified  to teach Qi Gong, an ancient oriental healing exercise. 

My passion is to help those who want a healthier lifestyle and need some guidance on how to go about it.  It's time to make your health a habit!
