Alaya Chikly, LMT
Alaya Chikly is a certified massage therapist with a bachelor’s degree in humanities. She has devoted the past 28 years to developing tools for emotional and spiritual healing.
Alaya has a profound ability to understand healing through the wisdom of the heart. Heart Centered Therapy (HCT) is a gift that she shares with others.
HCT was developed by Alaya while on a soul quest seeking spiritual understanding and healing. She has studied healing in Thailand, Jerusalem, Israel, and Paris, France. She met with teachers, scholars and healers that were able to give her the resources to heal body, mind and soul. This work truly emerged from her love of heart, and her longing for truth.
The experience of HCT is an opening of the heart, the gateway to the sacred journey within.
