About Katie Huff Oberlin

Katie Oberlin

I believe that profound transformation is possible, both individually and globally, when we address the root cause of our illnesses and imbalances and take action energetically and holistically.

Like the ripple in a pond, when we heal ourselves, our energy sends a vibration and frequency that heals others and helps to heal the world.


My goal is to empower clients by allowing them to tap into their own innate ability to achieve homeostasis. I use Healing Touch and Shamanic Healing to provide a bridge between conventional and complementary care and to help clients reach their physical, social, emotional, mental and spiritual goals.

I enjoy inspiring others to realize their full potential. My work as a Healing Touch mentor and Healing Touch Program instructor allows me to share my knowledge and expertise, guiding students through hands-on workshops and retreats which enable them to practice healing methods to help themselves and others.


A former high school and college biology teacher, Katie Oberlin began working in Healing Touch and integrative medicine in 2003. In addition to achieving her certification as a Healing Touch practitioner and instructor (HTCP/I), Katie is also a Healing Touch Program Qualified Mentor, meaning she can train others to get their certifications and pursue a career in Healing Touch. She has also pursued training in Advanced Practice Techniques (including Trauma Release), Holistic Counseling, Energetic Anatomy and Physiology, Energetic Transformations, Hospice Volunteer Services, Healing Touch for Children, Healing Touch for Babies and Healing Touch for Animals.

Katie received advanced training in shamanic healing at The Power Path School of Shamanism in 2014. Her travels have taken her to power spots in the southwestern United States, as well as Mexico and Peru, where she has worked with shamans from the Q’ero and Shipibo indigenous healing traditions.
