046 – Energy Healing and Shamanism
Pat is away this week, so I’m interviewing a colleague and a very special friend of mine Ann Marie Chiasson MD. We first met in 2008 when I was training as a fellow for the integrative medicine program through the University of Arizona.
She is now the director of the entire program. She is also the author of Energy Healing: The Essentials of Self-Care. She is board certified in family practice. She also graduated with honors and has trained in shamanism, energy healing and psychic surgery.
When I had my retinal detachment, Ann Marie helped me from an energy medicine perspective. Ann Marie is an absolutely fascinating person and in this episode we are going to talk about everything from shamanism to energy healing and simple rituals we can do to help ourselves.
