Dr. Karen Kan is an Empath, Earth Angel and holistic physician specializing in spiritual medicine. She employs the integration of Mind-Body-Spirit in healing and spiritual evolution. Through the process of healing her own debilitating illness, Dr. Karen discovered that the journey can be both challenging and rewarding, as the Soul is always moving closer and closer to Source. Her passion is empowering Earth Angels, Starseeds and Indigos to discover their innate gifts and healing abilities, and to open the doorway for them to connect with their Soul's Mission. She particularly enjoys working with young Millennials who need guidance and healing. Her empathic specialty is sensing and clearing Dark Spirit influences from her patients and clients from all timelines and dimensions, which she perceives as part of a Universal "cleansing". Working with the Archangels, Ascended Masters, and other Light Beings, Dr. Karen is often commissioned by Mother Earth to heal entities and their influences on a galactic scale. Using her TOLPAKAN™ healing method, Dr. Karen works with patients with challenging health issues whom other doctors and healing professionals have been unable to help. Dr. Karen's TOLPAKAN™ healing method combines Source-directed muscle testing and Archangel-derived healing frequencies she was attuned to during her previous lifetime as a Lemurian Ascended Master. Dr. Karen is looking forward to opening her Academy of Spiritual Medicine in the near future to teach others how to use the TOLPAKAN™ healing method in advanced ways.

Dr. Kan's Care Philosophy
My approach is unique and for some, too "woo woo", so I'm not for everyone. My favorite patients are those that have failed the best that conventional medicine has to offer. Why? Because they've spent thousands of dollars getting treated at famous medical centers and are no longer looking for that "magic pill" that is going to cure them. Those types of patients are open to spiritual medicine. They are the ones willing to do whatever it takes to get better. And you know what? They DO get better. I'm just their guide and advocate (and cheerleader) and partner in their healthcare. What ensues is a positive long term relationship that empowers patients to heal themselves. I don't heal them. They heal themselves.
