CSC Chigamik CHC’s Indigenous Traditional Healing services understand that sickness begins in spirit, then impacts one’s mind, emotions, and body. Our Healers use traditional Aboriginal approaches to bring about wellness. They provide non-judgemental and compassionate support, working with both First Nation, Metis, and Inuit or Non-Aboriginal individuals on a broad range of issues. Some of these problems include: stress, depression, abuse, effects of the residential school system, identity, substance abuse, self-esteem, and relationship issues. Through culture and traditional healing methods, our healers strive to help individuals achieve balance, harmony, and good health.
Traditional Healing is open to anyone in the North Simcoe community. Sessions are provided one-on-one, and are one-hour in length. This service is free, however, a gift of tobacco for the healer is require at each visit.
