Kristi can help with a multitude of symptoms, including pain, headaches, migraines, fibromyalgia, infertility, menopausal symptoms, neuropathy, assisting with weight loss, easing aging process, anxiety, depression, PTSD, assisting healing before and after surgery, and mitigating nauseas and other effects of chemotherapy.
