Cecilia Surbano (CCHt, OMN, CIP, URMT)

Since childhood, I have felt the urge to explore and learn about the nature of human beings. I always knew we have far more capabilities than we can imagine! This need to know more about the nature of humanity led me to discover wonderful spiritual and holistic therapies.
Through personal healing, I discovered the knowledge that the keys to mental, emotional, physical and spiritual happiness are within myself. All we need has already given to us by Mother Nature!
I have over 10 years combined experience in the art of holistic healing and self-analysis techniques and alternative therapies including designing custom healing programs with excellent results. I am certified in Clinical and Holistic Hypnosis, Iridology, Orthomolecular Nutrition, Holistic Therapy and I am a Reiki Master as well as a member of the National Guild of Hypnotists. I also offer Past Life Regressions.

I look forward to working with you!
