Traditional native healing practices are founded on the principle that good health is our natural state of being. Good health is achieved as our bodies, hearts, minds, and spirits are in balance, and we live in harmony with Mother Earth and our Creator.
– Connie McCloud | Northwest Traditional Healer
Visiting Native healers come from the local area and as far away as New Mexico, Arizona, and Canada. Their healing methods vary depending on a patient’s unique circumstance and the healer’s preference.
Appointments with native healers are scheduled for one hour. Currently, Native Healer appointments at Salish Cancer Clinic are on hold due to the pandemic.
