KT Colgan – Emotional Energy Healer and Pathogen Elimination Assistant
KT Colgan first started working at the Healing Center as a Graphic Designer in 2011 while also receiving treatment as a patient. When chronic shoulder pain made it hard to continue being a graphic designer, she found a powerful healing modality a and new passion called the Emotion Code. She decided to teach herself the Emotion Code when she noticed great results from getting several sessions from an Emotion Code /Body Code Practitioner. Over the past 5 years KT has honed her emotional clearing and energy healing skills and as of June 2017 is excited to help patients get to the root of their health concerns by identifying and clearing energetic imbalances. Because KT has firsthand experience battling and overcoming the bulk of her health issues (allergies, autoimmunity, depression and chronic pain), she feels she is in a unique position to both relate to and inspire current patients going through a similar struggle. She also helps patients with pathogen elimination by running the GB4000 and biofeedback scans.
