About Chapter President, Pamela Thompson: 

profile2Pamela is a certified Healing Touch and EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) practitioner. Her training also includes Reiki I,II and Advanced Reiki and Quantum Touch I, and exploration of other energy modalities such as guided imagery and kinesiology. In addition she is a retired teacher of American Sign Language and nationally certified interpreter for the Deaf. With her husband Brad, also a certified EFT practitioner, she owns and operates WellnessWithin. They work with people who feel emotionally and physically drained to reduce their stress, increase their energy, relieve negative emotional and physical issues, identify and change sabotaging behaviors, and help them be more productive. They are passionate about their work because, when people are able to release the stress that has been negatively influencing their emotions, behaviors and wellbeing, they become calmer, happier, and healthier This in turn impacts their relationships and interactions with others, leading to a calmer more peaceful community/world. Pamela's and Brad's unique approach utilizes powerful, effective energy techniques and provides education about current scientific information on how the mind impacts the body.  They continually seek to increase their knowledge and skills with ongoing advanced energy courses. Their work is not limited by geography and can take place in person, over the phone or via Skype.
