“As far back as I can remember, I knew I was meant to heal.”
-Kristine Blanche, owner and operator of Integrative Healing Center & Spa, an innovative healing center in the heart of the North Shore of Long Island.
Kristine’s journey toward her goal has been guided by many experiences. Every dream usually begins with a story, and this is her story.
In late 2004, after extensive training and many years experience in the healthcare field her role as a healer took a sharp turn, as her grandfather approached the end of his life, her 32 year-old sister-in-law, Lori, was diagnosed with stage 2B Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and colon cancer reared its ugly head in her father’s life. Kristine became a caretaker for those she loved most in this world.
As anyone in the healthcare world knows when the person you love appears on the other end of the stethoscope the world shakes. It is usually real life experiences that teach us the most profound lessons and this was that moment. She describes it as the day her two worlds collided. Kristine had always lived a very holistic life, but practiced very conventional medicine. The collision was catastrophic and resulted in profound loss, which caused her to fall far into a dark night from which there, was an awakening.
Kristine Blanche insists the medicine that she studied her whole life was not enough. She believes that we all deserve a healthcare system where comfort, education, guidance, and empowerment are the priorities. Her passion stems from the belief that we all have the innate right to experience the healing power of our own spirit and body . . . to experience the healer within.
The pain and suffering this elegant woman experienced created the inspiration. This moment sparked a fire within her soul. Out of tremendous pain and sorrow there was a glimmer of light and a vision was born. Kristine Blanche, wife, mother, daughter, sister, and Doctor, stands the proud owner of one of the most comprehensive holistic health centers on Long Island.
The Northport Wellness Center is so excited that Kristine will now share her experience and expertise with the patients and clients at our facility.
