“A couple years ago my shoulder stopped working and pain was shooting into my elbow, and arm and I had to stop working for a bit. I went to a chiropractor for 10 months with no progress before decided to go see a Cranial Sacral Therapist. During my first session I was irritated that the adjustments were so subtle and couldn’t imagine that anything could change after this kind of work. Well I was damn wrong… Mindy Barnes healed my shoulder in ONE session. I thought maybe this was just luck, but after I woke up 3 days ago with my neck stiff as a board, making it a challenge to do anything, I went to her again and again felt as though with such subtle touch it would be impossible to have relief, however sure enough the next morning I woke up with full range of movement and each day continues to feel better.
I highly recommend the magical touch of Mindy. She has a super convenient, relaxing healing space in downtown Placerville and is compassionate, kind and has a true gift for healing.” ~Leah Delmer
“Mindy Anne Barnes has a special gift for healing due to her light spirit and friendliness which allows her to connect easily with others. Her energy is gentle and playful and she has a unique ability to find “dis-ease” and nudge it into healing. She has developed some simple yet very effective process techniques allowing the client to gain depth of insight into their patterns and blocks, enabling the client to assist Mindy in a deeper and more lasting healing. She has keen insight and ability to see into what is going on with the body and spirit. Her Cranio Sacral sessions are profoundly healing, relaxing and rejuvenating.” ~Marylou
“Mindy Anne Barnes is a woman truly gifted in the art of healing through the use of Cranio Sacral Therapy. If there are any doubts in the use of cranio work, a person must try only one appointment with Mindy to experience its healing benefits. The results are often immediate and stunningly powerful for both mind and body. Personally, each member of my family uses Mindy’s cranio sacral therapy for physical and/or emotional ailments. Healing from the inside out, as Nature intended.” ~Kimbery
“I was diagnosed with Viral Encephalitis in April 2014 followed by Autoimmune Encephalitis in June 2014. I have problems with numbness and tingling and dizziness from the damage done by the encephalitis. I wanted to do anything I could to get back to my former self so I started investigating different therapies not offered by the hospital I was treated at.  I had read about Cranialsacral Therapy and thought maybe I should give it a try.  My mother-in-law recommended Mindy Barnes and I called and made an appointment. Making that appointment was one the best things I’ve ever done and after seeing Mindy for a month I felt so much better. Every time I have a session I leave feeling lighter and just more like I used to be before the illness. Since it is an autoimmune condition and I have flairs I continue to see her once a month or more if I am having a particularly rough time. As I said before having Cranialsacral therapy is one the best decisions I have made since being diagnosed and I wish I had found Mindy sooner.  Thank you Mindy you are the best.” ~Valerie Debler
“Mindy Barnes’ gentle skills as a healer are simultaneously relaxing and energizing. What a treat! This is one of the most enjoyable healing modalities I have tried. I have found it to be effective for back pain and pelvic pain, and it helps for me within 1 to 2 sessions. Definitely recommended!” ~Vaughna Dusek
“I recently experienced some post-surgery physical distress. Fortunately, I recalled your suggestion that I call you if I needed any assistance with my healing. At the time, I had no idea how helpful that suggestion would soon be to me. Not only was my physical discomfort immediately resolved, but I also experienced resolution of a very painful unfinished emotional experience that had been buried for years. The release of that burden was sudden and extremely cathartic. Thank you, Mindy, for restoring my physical and emotional health in such a gentle, caring way. I am truly amazed at the rapid and lasting results.” ~Jeanne B.
“Cranio Sacral therapy helped my lower back pain, and helped once when I had pain from a kidney stone.” ~Dennis Dusek
“Mindy’s Cranio Sacral work is very gentle… yet powerful and effective on so many levels. She helps release stress and trauma that underlies my medical issues, and I am blown away by the success of her work! Thank you, Mindy!”
