About

Cari Cohen is a Spiritual Healer and Teacher. Since 2001, she’s been helping clients all over the world with life-changing transformations. Her unique skill is in working with Higher Guidance to repattern or reprogram energy. She does this through distance healing, guided meditation, pranayama (breathing techniques), mantra (chanting), yoga, massage and dance.

Her own healing journey began after a car accident in 2001. Reiki was the only thing that worked when pharmaceuticals and other western approaches hadn’t. She immediately received Level I Reiki attunement and began offering healing assistance to others.
