Whole health and healing for physical, emotional and spiritual wellness.
Dr. CHRISTINE MAYO POWERS
PharmD BCPS CHT CFST EEM-CP
Dr. Mayo Powers has always been passionate about science which led her to be a healer. This interest in science was the catalyst for pursuing a degree in biochemistry at University of Nevada, Reno, followed by a clinical doctorate in Pharmacy at The Ohio State University. Christine’s move to Portland was to complete a residency, but she actually received so much more –a home.
This allowed her to work for the last decade in acute care, specifically ICU, oncology, post-op, mental health and nutritional support in local community hospitals. In that time, she has seen much suffering, some miracles, and the transition of many lives. Patients who have suffered from a chronic illness that has spiraled out of control into an acute and catastrophic illness. Family members who’s lack of emotional health makes them unable to share love in life’s last moments. And health care workers who are spiritually drained, emotionally spent and physically exhausted already, having to pull extra shifts. She recognized there is something missing in our current health care paradigm. We in acute care do excellent jobs in saving people from the brink of death or catastrophe, but what about avoiding or healing the chronic illnesses? What about utilizing the body’s own wisdom? Christine wanted to find the answers. In her own exploration for wellness to cope with the spiritual, emotional and physical stresses of life, she has found a true balance, that utilizes evidence based practices. This incorporates the missing system of Energy, a total whole approach to physical strength and exercise, and the discovery of Truth in the mind. She has become a practitioner of all three areas. In addition to being a board certified clinical pharmacist, Christine is a clinical transpersonal hypnotherapist, a Life Stretch instructor, and a Fascial Stretch Therapist. In January 2017 she completed her Eden Energy Medicine Certification and now provides individual Energy healing sessions as well as workshops focusing on Energy Medicine.
Christine intuitively knows that with total wellness and balance, healing can happen. This is why she founded Hygeia Healing. This unique blending of healing modalities, physical fitness, and support that Hygeia Healing offers will create for clients and the community a revolution of wellness. Christine guides the client to discover their own healing power and wisdom within their spirit, mind and body.

In Ancient Greece, Hygeia is the Goddess of Health. She is the daughter of the god of medicine (Asclepius). While his symbol is known as the caduceus (a rod with a snake twined around it, used by the medical profession), her’s is the Bowl of Hygeia, a chalice with a snake twined around it. The Bowl of Hygeia is the symbol used by the pharmacy profession. An interpretation of that symbol is the logo for Hygeia Healing, founded by pharmacist, Dr. Christine Mayo Powers, PharmD.
