Dr. Caleigh Sumner

Website: http://caleighsumner.com/

Dr. Caleigh Sumner, ND is thrilled to be a part of the Coloured Soul Wellness team. She is a registered Naturopathic Doctor with the College of Naturopaths of Ontario. She received her Doctor of Naturopathy degree at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine, and her Bachelor of Health Science from Western University.

Caleigh’s journey with naturopathic medicine has been long-standing, as she was raised with integrative medicine from birth! She is confident in the unlimited potential of naturopathic medicine to heal and promote health. You do not have to wait until you are unhealthy to prioritize your health! Gone are the days where you take a pill to treat a disease or wait until you have symptoms to focus on your health. Naturopathic medicine is about predicting future health and promoting current health.

Caleigh’s true passion lies in women’s health, as women have unique health care needs that often require support beyond the conventional medical system. She knows this first hand after navigating the health care system with endometriosis and needing to advocate for herself and her body. She will always prioritize the health of women and take their needs seriously! Caleigh has extensive training in fertility, and loves working with those trying to conceive. She also has vast experience working with hormonal and menstrual concerns but has a general family practice where she supports all health goals.

Caleigh loves working in Etobicoke and has been supporting the community since she became a Naturopathic Doctor.  She is also an avid yogi, self-help addict, and dog lover and can’t get enough of her puppy named Indie!

Monica Butta

Hello and Welcome to my world of Energy Healing in Etobicoke!

I’m Monica Butta, an engineer, MBA and now the founder of Heal Me Energy – A Reiki Practice. I’m sure you are wondering about my journey from the world of engineering to the world of healing! Please allow me to share.

In 2012, my dad had a slip and fall, which resulted in a coma. This news took the entire family by surprise and we found ourselves camped outside the ICU trying to comprehend what just occurred. The medical teams predicted that Dad may never emerge from the coma state and survive; even if he did survive, he most likely would be severely paralyzed and unable to leave the hospital.  How is this possible? Dad was just fine a few hours ago!  How can Dad just be in a coma and not speak to me? How can he not get up and come back home? Oh life, why are you so unpredictable?  Not just me, we all were heartbroken and overly worried. A few hours later, I heard my younger sister and brother-in-law reassuring Mom to keep faith since someone was sending Reiki to Dad. This channeling of positive energy will surely help, and soon Dad would be out of the coma! “Really? How is that possible?” Yes, those were my words as I questioned their statement with full force. They explained, and I couldn’t follow it. To be honest, I didn’t want to and really, how could I? After all I’m an engineer and work on facts, not on hope and faith. This concept was rather foreign to me. (note – my family and I were unaware of Reiki at this point in time.). Dad finally moved his right hand and opened his eyes. We all were beyond delighted! Soon after, he was shifted from the ICU to a regular ward, where his journey to recovery began. This wasn’t easy by any means; on the contrary it was full of ups and downs. During this time, the concept of Reiki kept making it to my ears. I promised my God and the Universe that when Dad came home, I too would learn Reiki and send it to anyone else in need.

After 11 months, despite all the hurdles Dad returned home from the hospital. This was a MEGA VICTORY! He was weak, eating slowly, talking softly, mostly sleeping, but not paralyzed! Shortly after that, I started learning Reiki. Today, I practice Hands-On Reiki Healing, Distant Reiki Healing, and Aura & Chakra Balancing. Dad continued to heal, and I continued to intertwine Reiki into my daily life. A life-changing event had brought Reiki into my life, and I was unsure how to embrace it. The transformation wasn’t immediate; it came in phases that I could handle. I started with self-treatments for my migraines. Then I practiced sending Reiki to family and friends. The engineer in me understood Reiki as “Energy is not created or destroyed; it’s merely transformed from either static to dynamic, or vice versa. Reiki to me became the positive energy in our lives that is available to everyone; all we must do is unblock this within us.  My motto became ‘Let the Light Shine Within.’’’

On February 2nd, 2018, Dad left us. Doctors gave Dad 5 weeks and Dad gave us 5 years!  Dad, I will always love you and miss you! Take care and until we meet again. Thank you, God, and Universe for giving us a resilient father and these bonus 5 years.

On that note, I look forward to becoming a part of your journey. Together we will achieve the highest good for all.
