To facilitate our body's own healing response and to allow the informs the practitioner of what it needs and where we should start in this therapeutic approach.

"Working with Kendra is truly a magical experience. She is the most gifted intuitive
healer I have ever met. She was able to identify times throughout my life that
impacted me and subsequently became repressed emotions that then manifested into feelings of frustration, guilt, and resentment. Through her intuitive distance work she can identify the stuck places in the body which are the cause of imbalances. Kendra identified where I was holding tension, negative emotions, disfunction, etc. perfectly and came up with a plan of treatment with the help of Spirit and my Guides. Many times, during my treatment I would feel physical healing energy and even an electrical sensation from the remote Resonance Frequency Energy work. So many of my symptoms have already disappeared completely over the last few weeks like difficulty sleeping, lack of energy, depression, and restlessness.
Kendra is an incredibly gifted therapist and delightful to work with".

"My daughter had major medical procedures and surgeries when she was born. She has been through a lot, so I sought out Kendra to help her body heal. I have been working with Kendra for about 2 years and she has become a loving friend, teacher, and mentor. She is amazing with my daughter and they have truly connected over the years. I believe in the power of bowenwork, reiki, and resonance frequencies, and can testify to the healing properties of these techniques. Due to COVID-19, I have strictly been seeing Kendra via online sessions and I have seen massive improvements in my daughter and myself. Long distance healing works! The resonance frequencies work! The way our guides can aid and support us via the internet and Kendra is lifechanging. My daughter’s anxiety about going to the doctors has significantly decreased, her body heals more quickly, and she sleeps better at night. Furthermore, my own anxiety, depression, PTSD, and digestive issues have transformed and healed. I can guarantee that if you put in the work, are honest with yourself and Kendra, and intend to heal, you will. Kendra has been a beautiful, thoughtful, and encouraging guide for me and my daughter. I can not recommend her enough. I have grown significantly as a person and know her mentorship and guidance has been part of that. I feel truly honored to be working with Kendra and I know you will too. You will not regret it. Peace, love, and light to you.

"I am amazed. I didn't know much about resonance frequencies, let alone a long distance treatment. In all honesty I was slightly skeptical, but was curious if it could be effective. I had been dealing with off and on fever, body aches, and respiratory issues for a few weeks- all of the wrong symptoms amidst the current pandemic. Kendra said she would do some work, and I trusted her good intentions. That day I noticed "vibrations" , almost like a shiver in my body, in my arms, and up my neck and shoulders. Over the course of a few days this continued off and on, and my symptoms started to fade immediately. I had been taking otc medicines to cope, but honestly didn't get real improvement until her work. 4 days in I'm feeling almost 💯".

"I was given the gift of a remote Reiki treatment in November 2019. Through 2020 I continued treatments, and became confident that remote reiki is an important healing modality.
I came to Kendra and Merkaba Center for Healing in December 2020, with interest specifically in the brain fog (inability to remember where I was in a sentence) that I was experiencing related to parasitical and bacterial infections. Along with the first session, she set up a 14 day healing program. My gut symptoms and immune system issues were extreme, I was desperate! (smiling here ;-)
I was aware each day of the healing as it occurred. A tingling in my feet, or a deep sense of energy flow as I slept were two examples of the experience I had. I did come to welcome the specific time of a scheduled healing and yield to its wonderment.
Kendra’s synthesis of tools and healing is a definite contributor to my renewed health and well being. She is a delight to work with. Thank you Kendra"!

"The way Kendra explains things were refreshing and professional. I felt like we were a team in the therapy process. I was in pain all the time and my energy low. Depression was difficult to keep at bay, however, after the first appointment I felt such relief, pain and swelling in many areas lifted, I started sleeping better, anxiety and depression decreased, digestion improved and my overall quality of life has been impacted. I had a total of 6 sessions over a 2 1/2 month period. I am now walking 1 to 2 miles almost everyday and I find myself singing instead of obsessing about my health. Kendra, and this work has given me the gift of vitality that I didn't think possible at age 69, a new lease on life! I would suggest everyone get this kind of therapy from birth to elderly, as living life can have many traumas, both physical and emotional and the stress of it all adds up in the body".

“I was diagnosed with CRPS (complex regional pain syndrome) in april 2015. It happened secondary to tendinitis in my left wrist. Since then my life has changed dramatically, emotionally and physically. CRPS causes constant pain usually burning, stabbing, or aching, weakness, color and temperature changes, atrophy, tremors, anxiety, chronic fatigue, numbness/tingling, insomnia and hypersensitivity to touch, vibrations, and cold. I have been going to Physical Therapy/Occupational therapy, yoga, I have taken many meds including lyrica to help with the burning pain and loss of movement, Ativan to help with anxiety, norco for the other pain, and sleep meds. I have had 4 nerve blocks to calm the sympathetic nervous system and was about to go in for my 5th nerve block when Kendra asked if I’d be interested in trying Bowenwork and Tensegrity Medicine. I had trusted Kendra to do this on me because she had been one of my Occupational therapists after the initial injury. After 3+ treatments she was able to calm the flare up in my wrist which stopped the burning pain, my anxiety decreased, my sleep improved, and I wasn’t as fatigued, all these things helping so I could continue with my therapy program. I have not had to have a nerve block for 11 months and before I had been getting them every 3-5 months. It gives me hope that I’ll be able to move forward without nerve blocks or nerve medications. She understood when I said my body felt 'out of alignment' and was able to show me how it was and release the tightness. I gained an inch in height and the nurse at the doctor's office was confused and had to remeasure me. Kendra is so professional and easy to talk to. You can tell she really cares and that she is there for you. It’s amazing how much more in tuned with your body you become because of this. My family and I notice an improvement in my mental health after my sessions. I’m now off the lyrica, and only need the others when it starts to flare up, at that point I know I need to go see Kendra”.

" For years I've had chronic pain that was so bad I could hardly walk. It debilitated me so much that I couldn't work or socialize anymore, and I ended up in a hopeless depression. I had tried everything under the sun for healing and pain relief. The numerous doctors I had seen would end up throwing their hands in the air, and say, "I don't know what to tell you". Unable to take pain medications, I had to suffer with the pain. After just a couple of sessions with Kendra, I regained a good portion of my mobility, and had 40% less pain! I had hope again, and my depression subsided! Several sessions later, I am now looking for employment and socializing with my friends again! Thank you Kendra, you are a Godsend! "

"Kendra, thank you so much for being you. I hope this tells how great you are!
I found Merkaba Center for Healing via the internet. I was in need of Bowen therapy due to an injury; I had previously not taken care of. On my first visit, I was in extreme pain. I write this testimonial Pain Free. This is an accomplishment no practitioner had previously met.
Merkaba is the best thing that happened to me! Kendra is Amazing and really takes the time to hear your concerns. She educates and explains as she is working with you. I also appreciated her follow up calls to check on my progress.
I am so thankful to have found Merkaba Center for Healing and Kendra".

Life is a journey and healing goes along with it, I am so thankful our paths have crossed, you are part of my journey now. Thank you for the healing, pain relief, confidentiality and so much more. I look forward to continuing my wellness with you".

"I've been going here for a year now, and can say this woman has literally saved my life ❤!
When I started going last year I could hardly walk or sit up straight. There was no chance of me working a job, and hadn't worked for 4 years prior. I had no hope for my future. I was super depressed, in sooo much chronic pain I just felt like I'd rather die... and the list goes on of misery.
After just three sessions with her I was already able to walk further, stand up straighter, I had less pain, and a lot more hope! After one year of seeing her, I'm working a job! I walk a lot further, DAILY! I have tons of Hope! Less pain!!!..and my Future's So Bright, I Gotta Wear Shades"!!!

"Where do I even start?
I have been working on healing my injuries and traumas all my life and to a lot of success I must add. By the time I learned about Tensegrity Medicine and Bowenwork, I thought that whatever is left (residual from all my injuries and traumas) was what I was going to have to live with for the rest of my life. I made peace with that notion. I had no expectation going into this form of therapeutic modality for I had tried so many other forms.
Here is what I can honestly tell you:
#1 My PTSD with flying has disappeared.
#2 My PTSD from an incident that almost killed me, has vanished.
#3 My unstable neck, became stable.
#4 My huge Rotator Cuff tear was able to heal on its own without surgery.
#5 I feel younger now than I did 20 years ago and get mistaken for the older sister around my children even though I'm pushing 50 in a couple of years.
I'll leave it to that for now.....I continue to get work done and am constantly evolving into this strong, vibrant, healthy person. This work has given me HOPE for my future path of self-discovery.
The body/mind can heal itself with the right facilitation".

"I’m so grateful for finding this. I got so lucky I found Kendra Bratherton. I haven’t had a nerve block since she started. Every time I start to have flare ups she calms it back down. Thanks so much Kendra, you mean so much to me. I think everyone should try this. I literally gained an inch from it also".

"I've been dealing with chronic back pain for about 7 years. I had only 2 sessions with Ms. Bratherton at Merkaba Center and its been 8 months since I have felt ANY back pain. Somehow she addressed the CAUSE and I no longer have to deal with those episodes that kept me from working and living an active life. I feel like I did 15 years ago".
