Everyone reacts differently to the stress of our rapidly changing environment. The COVID-19 pandemic is a rare situation that can affect individuals in many different ways. Having access to Traditional Healing services during this period of isolation and stress is an essential part of holistic health care and can help individuals cope with a variety of stressors.
Chigamik’s Indigenous Traditional Healing service understands that sickness begins in spirit, then impacts one’s mind, emotions, and body. The Traditional Healers provide non-judgemental and compassionate support, working with individuals on a broad range of issues including stress, depression, abuse, effects of the residential school system, identity, substance abuse, self-esteem, and relationship issues. Through culture and Traditional Healing methods, the Healers strive to help individuals achieve balance, harmony, and good health.
