Chris Stopa's Background
Chris has been in the mental health field since 1987 with graduate degrees in Counseling and Marriage and Family Therapy. Working as a counselor in schools, youth service agencies, state drug and alcohol treatment programs, and community mental health clinics gave him extensive and varied counseling experience.
He also worked as a “Brain Gym” instructor teaching professors how to use techniques to increase brain and body integration.
Chris has been in private practice since the late 1980s using energy work as a major part of his program.
After working extensively using traditional therapeutic methods, he became frustrated with how some people remained "stuck" in a loop from trauma, depression or fear. He started studying energy healing as a way to help people break through into emotional and mental health more quickly.
He originally studied popular systems of energy healing and became a Reiki Master. Karuna Ki Master, JoRei
Practitioner, and Pranic Healing Advanced Practitioner.
Chris found that each of these systems encompassed a limited/finite number of healing energies or frequencies.
Since each stress in the body has its own unique energy frequency signature, there is a specific healing energy frequency that can most effectively remove that stress.
He moved beyond the range of most popular energy healing systems and over the years has been able to attune to the vast number of frequencies available. Along with healing work, Chris is a Transcendental Meditation teacher, getting attuned by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in the 1970's.
When he's not doing his healing work, Chris is happily hiking around the Pacific Northwest.
