    Cari Ryding RN, MSN, OCN

    Holistic Practitioner and Energy Healer

    From the time I can remember, I have been interested in what deeply matters to people and what makes them feel connected to life and what is most important to them. I believe that this is why I became a nurse because, there is nothing like illness to confront us with what is truly important in our lives. For the majority of my nursing career, I have been working in cancer care. It has been a privilege for me to get involved with peoples' lives during the crisis of cancer and to sit with them during the most challenging of times. Throughout my 27 year career as a nurse, I have developed an expertise in identifying the underlying cause of distress for people and showing them how to get help with that. I have deep empathy and a powerful respect for each individual's process of dealing with stress and discomfort. Early on in my career, I saw that western medicine was limited in its ability to help people return to a sense of wholeness and health. Thus I began a personal exploration of integrative and holistic care. ( with the whole person)

    The holistic philosophy of care helped me to understand that each individual is comprised of energy- and each of us has a mind, a body, a heart and a spirit. I began to try to understand the four aspects of myself. Through my own journey of healing and finding health, I became a student of many techniques such as quantum physical healing, acupuncture, EMDR, and several types of energy work. I noticed that the thoughts running through my mind weren't very kind to me. I found that my body struggled at certain times and I had the same emotional patterns that kept repeating themselves leading to ongoing distress. Equally powerfully, I discovered my spirit self, which is a kind voice within me that knows who I really am and guides me through life when it isn't overshadowed by the other three aspects of myself. There is an ever flowing communication between the mind, the body, the heart and the spirit and it is deeply sensitive. Through this work, I have found that healing is possible from the inside out.


    Because we are energetic multidimensional beings, healing is possible through many avenues. Seven years ago, I opened my own healing practice in order to create a space for people who are seeking support beyond what traditional medicine has to offer. My mission is to teach others how to love, trust and accept themselves during challenging personal circumstances. As much as our culture would like us to think we can heal and transform ourselves alone, I have found this to be deeply profound work that requires support.



  • What I Do


    I facilitate a transformative process that enables people to experience themselves as both human and divine. Because I am able to experience the client's whole self and all of the energetic layers, I am able to guide each client to better understand how they are uniquely created and driven to be who they are. This is such a foreign concept for most of us, but we are all already whole. We live in a society where we have been made to feel less than or not enough. Everything that has happened in our life has had a purpose, and if we are open to the journey of discovering who we are- we can understand our patterns and develop compassion and kindness for ourselves and our experiences. Sessions may include: the releasing of negative beliefs and thought patterns which can contribute to physical and emotional pain; teaching tools and processes for self care and compassion; meditations that offer clients the experience of their divine self and unconditional love; and ongoing education and guidance about how to care for our sensitive selves in this stress filled world.


    I work one on one with clients in person in Natick, MA. I am available to work with people all over the world over the phone or with Skype. I teach live classes regularly at Roots and Wings in Natick, MA and by invitation elsewhere.


    Many of us reach a place where what we have done is no longer working. We want the experience of freedom, but we feel stuck in our relationships and in our lives. Individuals who are ready for a deeper dive and are seeking the experience of wholeness, and the release of pain and patterns that no longer serve them, are my ideal client. This work can help us find a new energy for our life and reclaim our path. In doing this work, I found a clear sense of purpose, freedom and passion in my life. I am committed to creating a uniquely personal and profound experience for each of my clients. While this work can impact anyone, I also have three areas of interest.




    People Affected by Cancer

    Mission: Resilience & Self Compassion through Cancer and Beyond

    My expertise in cancer care includes inpatient and bone marrow transplant, outpatient chemotherapy infusion, hospice and care coordination. For 17 years, I facilitated a breast cancer support group. The people I have cared for have taught me a tremendous amount about the deep fear that impacts your life once you have been connected to cancer. It begins to affect everything in your life. To move beyond fear, we need to create a new experience. Meditations and transformational healing helps cancer survivors find a “ new” normal that feels empowered and provides a process for addressing the ongoing challenges.

    Adolescents and Young Adults with Mental Health Struggles

    Mission: Self Awareness & Self Acceptance

    Adolescents and young adults are struggling with an intense amount of emotional burden at this time.The numbers of people at this age being treated for anxiety and depression is higher than ever before. My healing work provides this group with a different context of care and I teach them how to know and understand their highly sensitive selves. This unique approach supports teens and young adults to take back their power and I guide them in finding tools that help them supplement any current mental health care that they already participate in.

    The LGBTQ Community

    Mission: Self acceptance & Healing

    The LGBTQ community is shining a spotlight on the discrimination that continues to be a part of our day-to-day life while at the same time creating a place for openness and acceptance. It continues to be a fear filled journey for many across the life span. As someone who has transitioned into this community during midlife, my eyes have been opened to the ongoing challenges that early discrimination and fear creates. Part of my work with this community is healing those old wounds, facilitating the experience of loving and accepting wholeness which changes the relationship with self and others.

  • Testimonials

    "My favorite part of working with Cari is that she puts her finger directly on the issue. She explains it to me in a rich and visual way which allows me to see and understand my own heart and mind from the inside out. Cari has a gift for seeing clearly the places where people are stuck. She guided me through those places in a gentle and safe way – and she was mindful about how I can handle change."

    - Ann L. ,Illinois


    "During my first session with Cari, I know my life completely shifted. Places where I was stuck became unstuck and I suddenly had the confidence to face the things that were holding me back. In the year that we have been working together, my life has completely changed – I have an inner peace, a lack of anxiety and a trust that the universe will give me what I need. My favorite part of working with Cari is that she has witnessed my change and she always sits without judgement. I think you have to be open to change from this work because you are forever changed by it."

     - Hilary S. ,Massachusetts


    "I was skeptical of Cari’s work. I couldn’t understand how she could know what she knows and make me feel better. I was open, though, and after the first time, it was so clear that it worked – it was amazing. I am still shocked by how she does this and how much better I feel after she does. I feel lighter, happier and better after you do a session. She works with me remotely so I don’t always know when she is going to do the work until I start feeling better – and the I open my email and I now why. Cari helps me ferret out the issues that my conscious mind doesn’t go to."

    - Jason M. , Massachusetts


    " I have worked with Cari for over five years and she has been instrumental in helping me weather many storms and in finding my true life’s purpose. Whether I was experiencing emotional or physical pain or just a loss of hope, my work with her has been like nothing else I have experienced. I always feel like Cari facilitate's the release of something that is blocked inside of me that was contributing to my struggles. Consequently I can see and feel things differently. Even in my worst moments, she was able to bring me relief and help me find answers when I thought there were none. I have recommended lots of people to work with her, and they have also experienced relief and clarity. "

    - Lisa A. , Massachusetts


    I find Cari’s energy gorgeous. When she creates a sacred space, it feels like being held in an embrace. Her ability to perceive and access truth, to see and hold the larger perspective, and to facilitate others in love—true, unconditional acceptance and wholeness and love—is a profoundly healing experience and truly rare. As are her great kindness, care, and integrity. If you are looking to open to the Universal source of your being, Cari can help. If you are looking to feel more support, inner clarity, and grace amidst life’s tremendous challenges, to feel more self-love and self-acceptance as you move through this human lifetime, Cari can help there too.
