Holistic Therapists

We are delighted to have so many talented therapists available for you.  Return often as our list will continue to grow!



Hello, my name is Kerri Collins and my practice, Lavender Dragon Healing Arts, was established in 2007. I ‘discovered’ Reiki at a Reiki share I attended in 2004 and became completely enamored with the spirit and energy surrounding the work. I became a Reiki Master Teacher in 2007, under Melissa Murphy, and I have taught Reiki classes since then. I attended Windemere Institute of Healing Arts and received certificates as a Practitioner of Healing Arts and in Massage Therapy in 2007. In 2013 I completed the Kala Healing Program (based on shamanic practices) with Michelle Stafford and am certified as an Earth Steward, Spiritual Healer and Ordained Minister with the SHES Organization. I am working toward my Healing Touch Spiritual Ministry certification and clinical aromatherapy certification.

I have worked with families and children for over 30 years, as a paraprofessional, daycare provider, youth worker, mental health worker and the last 16 years, as a family counselor. In 2012 I received a Master of Arts Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and am completing supervision under my temporary license. I have taught adults and children meditation and self-awareness throughout my career. I currently offer spiritual guidance/healing, energy/Shamanic healing, Reiki attunement classes, chakra balancing, aura clearing, essential oil consultations, individual meditation work and various classes and groups through Holistic Therapies.

I have communicated with the spirit world for as long as I can remember and feel we all can and do. I feel deeply connected to nature and feel that we all require this connection in order to heal. I look forward to developing a holistic therapy practice, which will include psychotherapy, energy work, meditation, Eco-therapy, and herbal/essential oil work; and to establishing Lavender Dragon and Holistic Therapies in the community as a center of alternative approaches to healing all aspects of one’s being-mental, physical, emotional and spiritual. I feel it is my purpose as a Practitioner of Healing Arts, to support and facilitate healing and to promote healthy and enlightened practices.

In love and light,

Services include Swedish Massage, Thai Massage, Deep Tissue Massage,                           Prenatal Massage, and Raindrop Therapy.


I am a massage therapist who graduated from Capri College in 2013. I was led to massage therapy after finally opening myself up to what the world had been trying to lead me to my whole life. I had been told since I was in high school that I was a healer and should be a massage therapist but didn’t feel it was my place at the time.

My earliest memories of my dad were going with him to see his reflexologist and chiropractor and I knew they did more good for him that his cardiologist and back surgeon. I still remember the exact day that I realized traditional medicine was not always the answer. It was the night of a high school concert choir event, I have suffered with migraines since I was in junior high and that night I had such a bad one that I was in so much pain, I was in a dark room, crying and couldn’t talk to any of my relatives who had come to see the concert. I had taken all kinds of medicine for the pain, but nothing was working. My grandfather came to me and worked on my head and neck for a few minutes and immediately I could see clearly, stand up, turn the lights on and had a great time with everyone. I knew then that drugs weren’t always the answer.

Over the years, I lost that faith and began to rely on whatever the doctor told me. When my oldest son was diagnosed with Autism at the age of 3 and began to take medication, I began to question if all the medicine was good. One thing that really made me question my choices in life was watching how he would calm down and be perfectly still every time my mom rubbed his feet. It made me remember my dad and his reflexologist and remind me how the power of touch can have such a profound effect and what it could do for him. It was then when I began to come back to the thought of being a massage therapist.

After I began school for massage, my eyes were opened to all the possibilities of healing from within. I felt I had come full circle and truly realized that this is what I am on this earth for. I am still learning and will always continue to learn every day but now I am very open to alternatives to treating ailments in new and exciting ways and would love to share the knowledge I have gained with you.

Lori Trumblee’

I have been attuned to Reiki for three years and received my Reiki Master attunement in 2013. I stumbled into Reiki after a close friend started offering Reiki classes at her home. After being attuned to Reiki, I really enjoyed working with the energy and seeing how it could help people, animals, plants, objects, and situations. I even was able to experiment with using it while on paranormal investigations. I found it very interesting how the symbols and energies would feel while being used to help different situations. I am a member of the Reiki Membership Association. I was part of a paranormal team for about three years. We worked very hard to help the living and the dead move on from their situations.





Marcia Brandt, Light Language Teacher and MariEL Healer

small pro picture

I opened Crystal Health Center in 1986 and enjoyed over 22 years of offering massage therapy to my clients. I’ve completed my massage career and I am now focusing on sharing my expertise in Energy Medicine and the healing arts.

I am always searching for the cutting edge therapies which assist people in their personal growth and healing. I have studied with many master healers and teachers. I was privileged to learn from Ether Lombardi, who was the 2nd Reiki Master initiated by Hawayo Takata. Ethel was a Master Healer and Teacher and I was initiated into her MariEL healing technique in 1984. Ethel also taught The Next Step and The Freedom Class, both of which I incorporate into my private healing sessions.

My personal sessions include MariEL healings, shifting you on the genetic level, Light Language, the art of communicating with Light to heal, transform and manifest, Goal Setting & Manifesting, and Spiritual/Personal Counseling sessions.

I love teaching Light Language locally and via Skype. I am a certified Light Language teacher and Light Language Teacher Trainer. This modality has given me the opportunity to change my life, manifest my dreams and bring balance and harmony into my life.

I live in a log home near Stone City with my partner, our cat, and a variety of wildlife. I enjoy gardening, teaching piano lessons, collecting crystals & rocks, reading, traveling and playing with my granddaughters. My goals include living a happy, healthy lifestyle and having the opportunity to offer spiritual wisdom and guidance to those I meet.

    I was wondering if Nikki does Chakra alignment?… My daughter who lives in Cedar Rapids right now is going through some difficult times right now… She feels “disconnected” as she puts it. She says she feels like there is this little black marble sized ball inside of her and nothing is connecting right… She asked me if I thought she was crazy. I believe in a lot of holistic things so I told her no. I read through the descriptions of your therapists and I think Nikki could help her a lot in guidance and healing…. unless you have a better recommendation. I needed to know what it might cost for Chakra alignment which I think would benefit her… Or would it be better to talk to her first to see what you thought would help her. She is working several jobs to help pay her bills so I was going to see if it did not cost to much if I could pay for it ahead of time.
