Christine's Photo Biography

In 2012, I became a certified Reiki Teacher from the Mikao Usui lineage. Depending on the student and their current emotional state, I sometimes begin class using the the silks and Reiki to guide them into the present moment.

I received my M.A. in Dance Therapy from New York University. Here I was working with an autistic child, using non-verbal therapy to help him feel safe. We worked together for six months, and for the first time he was able to hold eye contact and find comfort in physical contact.

These are my two greatest inspirations: My parents, Arthur and Wanda Salac. My father was a great advocate of preventative medicine. He won the Mr. Pittsburgh competition in 1951 and later came in 9th place as a bodybuilder in Mr. America. My mother, Wanda, used her strength to raise six daughters! I want to honor my parents for igniting my love and appreciation for a strong and balanced body, mind and spirit.
