About Katie Huff Oberlin

Katie Huff Oberlin, HTCP
Katie Oberlin, HTCP/I
Healing Touch Certified Practitioner/Instructor

“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 a 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 method: A heart-centered approach to healthcare through HEALING TOUCH and SHAMANIC HEALING.

Healing Touch transformed my views on anatomy and physiology, health and healing. I am a facilitator in the healing process, emphasizing the importance of disease prevention, enhanced focus, life balance, and general well-being. I also teach Healing Touch workshops throughout the year.

Shamanism started as a curiosity and quickly turned into a way of life for me. It is the oldest form of spirituality and healing on the planet. I soon realized that shamanic healing dovetails beautifully with Healing Touch, providing added focus and power to the healing process.

My mission:
To educate, empower, inspire

I view my clients  as a partners. My goal is to empower clients by allowing them to tap into their own innate healing potential. Together, we address physical, social, emotional, mental, and spiritual goals. I enjoy inspiring others to realize their full potential.

I am excited to offer an integrative holistic approach to health care for all ages and stages of life. Healing Touch and shamanic healing provide the bridge between conventional and complementary/alternative care.
