Every time I have surgery, the most helpful post surgery recovery work is done by Georgi Gochis. The combination of Cranial therapy and lymph drainage works wonders. Following significant oral surgery, repeated sessions with Georgi alleviated a wide array of problems. Although I have had Cranial Sacral Work done by others, it does not compare with the advanced and effective treatment with Georgi.

She also teaches self care exercises, which I value. I particularly appreciate Georgi’s preliminary consultations prior to each treatment. She asks pertinent questions and invites discussion about specifics of my situation. During the treatments, she lets me know what she is finding and targeting in her work. It is a helpful and dynamic partnership between patient and provider. I also appreciate the partnership between Georgi and my other healthcare providers. My physical therapist, chiropractor, and primary care physician value her work as much as I do.

Good communication is exchanged between all the team partners. My overwhelmingly positive experience with Georgi lead me to recommend her to everyone I meet…both lay persons and healthcare providers. I can’t imagine keeping healthy without her as a teammate.


Usually, within the same day, I feel like gold. Xanthe is the best thing that has happened for my health… possibly ever.


Georgi does an exceptional job with wellness care. She has helped me feel my best on a number of occasions, no matter what ailments I walked in with, she was able to help me immensely and was always able explain why. She is unique, gifted and wise. I highly recommend her care. — October 30, 2011


I have gone to Georgi Gochis for many years; she is a gifted healer. Georgi and her daughter Xanthe treat all clients with compassion and care at The Manitou Wellness Center


Participating in the STR course has been a powerful experience for me. It has pushed and stretched me in many ways, personally and professionally. As I look back over the year, I feel more confident in being able to help others, can accept feedback without judging myself and have gained new energy from releasing my unresolved trauma. It has been a year of hard, and very rewarding work and I am excited to continue on this path!
