Sherry Methling had settled comfortably into the corporate world when life threw an unexpected curve ball her way in the form of chronic, unexplainable pain. She waded through a sea of unhelpful prescriptions and proposed cures from Western doctors before stumbling upon the only thing that promised relief: alternative healing. During the process, Sherry unearthed a special talent for sharing in others’ pain—known as clairsentience—that granted her a unique level of empathy with the afflicted. With that discovery in mind, she sculpted her background in science into a new career as an energy healer, massage therapist, and practitioner of emotional-freedom techniques.

Sherry’s studies primed her to open Ancient Healings, where ancient healing techniques are the building blocks for her treatment plans. Though the methods differ in application, they all share a common goal: the removal of the mental and spiritual blockages that manifest themselves physically by assessing and treating the source. Some of the treatments Sherry enlists, such as massage and meditation, are familiar to the average client. Others inclue energy healing, charka balancing, color therapy, and spiritual healing. Crystal and sound healing, draw their power from unusual catalysts: sounds that calm and crystals that, in their unswerving stability and day job as footstools, encourage balance.
