A little information about me...
My name is Christine Pilson. I am a Certified Health Coach, Reiki Master and Meditation Teacher.
My journey began in my late 30’s. At that time, I was a new mom with a stressful career. For years I struggled with severe digestive issues, joint pain, anxiety, insomnia, and fatigue. During that time, many well-meaning doctors ran numerous tests, all to no avail. In the end they diagnosed me with IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) because they did not know what else to label it. My frustration and anxiety grew as I continued to lose weight and become malnourished and dehydrated. Shortly after this came additional diagnoses of Rheumatoid Arthritis and Hashimoto's thyroid disease. My health was spiraling down hill and I felt like I had to take matters into my own hands. I knew there was a root cause, and was determined not to give up until I figured it out. I could not continue living this way. I had to find my way back to a life of vitality.
I began to research alternative therapies, and started to see an Ayurvedic practitioner. I was feeling so much better within two weeks. From there I added an acupuncturist to my healing plan. My sleep improved and my energy levels increased. It was at this point that I knew my calling was to become a Health Coach so I could help others who were suffering like I had. I then enrolled at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.
Later, I discovered the importance of energy medicine when I went to a Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioner. Just one session had me dancing around the house feeling like I was in my 20's again! Colors were brighter, music was more meaningful, and I felt intense gratitude for my life. Shortly thereafter, I enrolled in a series of classes at the Maryland Center for Reiki Training to become a Reiki Master.
Over the years I have learned that true health is so much more than just diet and exercise. It’s about bringing together all the things in life that nourish you, such as having loving and supportive relationships, finding fulfilling work, having a meaningful spiritual practice and doing things that bring you joy!
So here I am now - my passion is working one-on-one with people to help them form an action plan getting them back to feeling healthy and vibrant! My specialty is working with people who have IBS, as well as other digestive disorders. I am there with my clients every step of the way, celebrating every success, big or small. Sometimes we just need a little guidance and support to reach our goals!
I currently offer sessions either via Zoom, Skype or over the phone. I can see clients in person in the Maryland area. I practice out of Healing Circles Wellness in Frederick, MD as well as the Center For Healing Arts in Westminster, MD. I also lead interactive workshops on a variety of health and wellness topics.
Your life is meant to be lived with joy!
