Located in Ellijay, Georgia, Patricia Babin, LMT, BCTMB, Dipl. ABT (NCCAOM)® has loved to use her hands to heal since she was young. Always the one to have her hands on another’s shoulders to ease some discomfort, her family regarded her as the one with “the touch.” Her college years were spent in nursing school, but she quickly realized that the traditional hospital and medical arena were not her calling after all. Even so, she never lost the desire to nurture and care for those around her.
After spending many years in business and the interior design profession, she came to realize that there was more she could be doing to serve the world. Her education in complementary and healing arts began in the year 2000 when she joined the Dahn Yoga program and completed the Dahn Healer School Professional Course. It was during this time that she came to know Dr. Mark Armstrong of Ahimki Center for Wholeness and enrolled in his Ahimki Institute of Holistic Theology for naturopathic studies.
Having received her 2nd degree Reiki attunements and being introduced to the many aspects of holistic healing, she graduated Valedictorian of her class after 3 years and then proceeded to engage her studies with the Jin Shin Do Foundation to become registered as a Jin Shin Do® Bodymind Acupressurist. Her subsequent certification as an Asian Bodywork Therapist with the National Council for the Certification of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) rounded out her education in the field of acupoint and five element theories of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Patricia graduated from Cohutta Healing Arts Institute - School of Massage and is licensed through the state of Georgia as a Professional Massage Therapist (GA Lic# MT009986). As co-owner of CHAI, she was also one of the school’s lead instructors and student advisor.
As a yoga instructor and an ordained minister through the Universal Brotherhood Movement, Patricia brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to assist her clients in their own personal path to health.
