Hello, I’m Barb Culbertson. I’ve studied an ancient Peruvian tradition for more than 20 years. In my private practice, The Ways of Balance, LLC. I provide Traditional Ka Ta See Healing, Counseling and Teaching
While studying this extraordinary tradition I gained professional experiences in helping people physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually through body work and other somatic approaches to aid in full recovery from stress, injury, disease and emotional and physical trauma.
From 1990 to 2016 at various times, I offered individual sessions, workshops and classes as a Licensed Massage Therapist, a Certified Polarity Educator, a Certified Focusing Teacher and a Certified Lymph De- Congestion Therapist. For a span of ten years in this time period I worked at the Duke University Diet and Fitness Center teaching Mindfulness Meditation, Life Style Change classes, and providing individual energy balancing sessions.
I am a Licensed Massage Therapist in New Mexico (NM – 7562). I received a BA in Psychology and Religion and a MA in Economics.
I currently focus my passions and energies on providing the traditional Ka Ta See teachings, healings and counseling. I love the way that the ceremonies and practices guide people along their individual paths to freedom, possibility, healing and fun.
Traditional Ka Ta See Healing Sessions
The sessions include gentle hand contacts, rhythmic movements of your body, the use of my voice or other instruments that help shift your level of consciousness and your vibrational level, as well as verbal interaction between you and me.
These sessions provide a level of relaxation that may be uncommon in your day to day life. The deep stillness is rejuvenating and frees your system to turn more towards things like cell repair and detoxification and the freeing of trauma from your nervous system.
The sessions can also provide a safe and grounded place to attend to things you know need healing in your life – things that have been hard for you to make time for or that you are afraid to look at alone.
Some gain a shift in perspective, a decrease in pain, or relief from looking clearly at an emotion.
Some welcome a way to interact with their spirit – their source of aliveness and to gain access to the knowledge there.
The sessions are 75-90 minutes and are done on a massage table. Please wear loose comfortable clothes.
