Camille's work literally goes to the core of my physical and emotional body to gently and powerfully unseat deeply settled core wounds. Along with meditation, Camille's intent and energy focused on these places has enabled me to first accept, and then release longstanding trauma. I've noticed a drastic improvement in my relationships with my world, my loved ones, and myself. Along with healing, Camille's intuitive touch provides clarity, deep relaxation and rejuvenation on several levels.

The word "kung fu" springs to mind whenever I think of Camille. Not the martial art(s), but the more literal translation: Skill attained through practice and hard work.
Her skills helped me connect with myself on levels I never even realized existed. One must experience it to truly believe it.
But real skill is only a lens to help focus the inner to the outer. Camille's skills hint at an ocean of strength, compassion, and beauty within. And that's what makes her awesome. In just her.... being, you can connect with something....good. Something familiar yet forgotten. We all have it. This is a big deal because this kind of connection helps us to heal. Allows us to heal.
Camille's kung fu is strong.

The gift of a lifetime has been the ability to breathe presence into the belly. This has deepened my practice, greatly added to the understanding of the "yogic" state, and inspires gifts of appreciation. Thank you.

...when I saw [a student Steve referred to me for help with constant migraines] last week, I was stunned how much better he looked after sessions with you. It's mainly the light that flows through him that's the biggest difference. Deep unwinding like I have never seen before in him. Lifetimes of rage have moved. He looked like he had 30 [another healing modality] sessions.

He does not often accept new students.)
...thank you. I have never felt all of my meridians and orbits open up and flow with any other practitioner...I appreciate your gentle touch.
Camille is an amazingly intuitive healer, a real medicine woman, wise beyond her years. Over the years I have worked with many healers and a wide variety of transformative work. Camille sets up a space of profound trust and safety in her practice – in our very first session I went to deep pre-verbal, pre-visual spaces, with shifts happening from within my body that years of other approaches had not been able to touch or bring about. I highly recommend her!

My experiences of Chi Nei Tsang with Camille have been consistently rewarding, and I look forward to each new session. I first decided to see Camille about six months ago because I was suffering extreme pain from a herniated disc in my lower back. In fact, I needed to be driven to my appointments because I could not sit, and had to lie down in the car.
At my first appointment, I was immediately impressed with Camille's direct and complete honesty about what to expect, as well as the grace and sensitivity of her technique. I immediately felt comfortable and trusted her, despite the fact that I had never experienced Chi Nei Tsang and did not know much about it. My condition did not disappear overnight, but after three or four sessions, I was feeling good enough to drive myself to my appointments!
Since then, I have continued to improve, and I find the treatments not only help me to feel better physically, but also leave me with an overall feeling of deep peace and well-being. Camille is a skilled healer and a delightful presence!

I won't go into the reasons I decided I was "done with Chi Nei Tsang" but instead will say that a few months later I decided to give this belly rub thing another try. My first session with Camille was so different, that it almost felt like it wasn't even the same modality. Almost...
It's not the most comfortable thing for me to pull up my shirt and let someone rub, knead and pull up, and just plain give my belly one hour of undivided attention, but from my first session I was so comfortable with her. If I had questions, or concerns, or a feeling seems to pop up to be released, I never felt she would prefer it if I would shut up. (Okay, one reason I needed a new therapist.) I was shocked the second time, since I relaxed a bit more now that I knew her, when she was done. "Was that an hour? It only felt like 25 minutes" I said as I came back to Earth. Yes, it was an hour and I don't know where I went, but it was a lovely, peaceful and calm place...one that I never had the pleasure of visiting in my four months with the other therapist.
I do bodywork myself, and it's really important to make the client aware that the hour is "about them" Wherever they are on that day, emotionally, physically or spiritually, should be "okay" in that hour together. I always arrive nervous (emotionally, physcially OR spiritually) to any kind of appointment, but within minutes I am at ease once Camille's Light starts vibin' with my own. Yeah, it might sound like a silly way to spend an hour, but believe me, it's a good thing. Your belly, and all that it's attached to, on all levels, will thank you.

Camillie you are amazing!! :)
I am feeling better than ever! Probably the best I've felt since age 4, just kidding, but in a way seriously because I am so enjoying life now knowing it's okay to just be me and I have you to thank for that...
I hope my emailing of the novellas and self-memoirs of me is not an annoyance for you - I do feel as though it is helpful for me to log the healing with the progress as these repressed memories are resurfacing. But I am sure of this revelation - you have helped me to finally uncover the root cause for it all.
(…)I began re-living the feelings and had flashbacks in my dreams from the experience or trauma from when I was a child. That definitely brings with it "unlocking of emotions and the energy tied to it" and well that one instance that I had repressed set the stage for a lot more instances in my life where I've always been confused as to why things have happened the way they have.
I realize that I was in so many ways subconsciously punishing myself(…)
GEEZ, I now realize sooo many issues with myself that caused me to be the way I've been to this point and its so very refreshing to finally see that by uncovering the root belief that caused my inner world to be as it was- just how much I have had to take in my outer world for me to finally be able to uncover the memory of the trauma that caused it all is mind blowing and I am eternally grateful to you and I am now willingly and freely experiencing the emotions that are being uncovered as a result and am so very excited for me to start reflecting a new outer world as I am finally looking at/focusing on myself and coming to terms with acceptance and am finally finding peace in my inner world by now being made aware of the root cause for pretty much everything else and feeling it all and accepting it all.
… you have tremendously helped me in many ways that I did not even anticipate or realize I even needed. As silly as it seems after fully remembering, processing and writing all of the above, when I reached out to you for help in extracting the demon I actually thought I was subconsciously healthy and fine and all that was needed was to get rid of that entity!
I feel really good and at peace with everything and am freely feeling, experiencing and accepting the emotions as they come now.

It is hard to put into words how Camille has recently helped my family. The help she gave us was on an intensely deep, spiritual level. The depth of this healing was very new to me. I'd had psychic readings and healings before, but this healing was much more in tune with the needs of the individuals in my family. I could see behavioral changes in my daughter, and feel more space in my home as the un-needed energy was clearing.
My 4 year old daughter was having huge emotional outbursts, often an hour or two long, at least daily. Crying, screaming, afraid to not be touching my body. Panicked and enraged at the same time. My husband, our 1 year old, and I were all living in a state of anxiety. I was exhausted, and I was losing my identity as a peaceful, kind mom, and slipping into the frazzled, yelling type. I frequently cried at night. I honestly had no clue how to help my daughter and family.
I was referred to Camille. She saw my daughter's fear and anger, and helped her to release it. Camille helped me understand why these intense emotions where surfacing, and I felt better able to accept what was happening. The emotional outbursts became less and less frequent, and now we just have the occasional (brief!) meltdown that is normal for a 4 year old. We all feel human again. Our home has much peace and joy.

"Yesterday was really amazing. Thank you! And thanks for the check-in and words of wisdom today. Overall, I'm feeling good. I was quite introspective afterward and throughout the evening, and feel a little fatigued from it all. I've actually been quite emotional the last couple days. Isense that yesterday affected it all in a positive light, in that it gave me quite a bit of awareness ( i.e. verbal articulation, which is often what I need to understand things) of at least some of what's going on. So thank-you for that!! I'm still in a bit of an emotional funk, but these things don't resolve themselves overnight, eh? I sense that this is actually a really good time for me to be doing this type of work, as I have such a strong desire to make a significant shift in my life... but so much fear."
"... I quit my job, will be going to India (and m/b Thailand) for three months - both matters of which [my parents] are ultimately disapproving. Indeed, there was great tension. But it went more smoothly than ever before. My dad acknowedged that we're at a crossroads, and that he has to let go of his sense of power over me. It was profound.
Amazing, too, I've been sharing this absolutely soulful connection with this guy. We randomly ran into each other at the beach a couple weeks back -- and both cannot deny that it was not by chance. We both just feel that this is it...
...Anyhow, I want to again thank you for sharing your energy with me. I do believe that it has played a significant role in how my life is currently shifting and unfolding in a most positive way. After all, I did run into M., immediately after a session with you, when I went to the beach to be still and let things settle. And there he was, pulling out of the parking spot that I was about to pull into. Wow..."

I'm so grateful to have met Camille! She is a wonderful person and very gifted healer with years of training. She has a very grounded presence and creates an incredibly comfortable atmosphere which is so important for the healing process to take place. Camille honors each client wherever they are in their life with great compassion, and never judgment. She shares her knowledge and experience freely and generously. You can tell she cares a great deal about the work she does, and clearly, she has found her niche. She's a very skilled practitioner who also has the gift of intuition.

Thank you again for the warm and comforting experience that you provided. You are such a beautiful person and I am very happy that D. and I decided to get our colonics from you. :)
(we had spoken about her dream life, which always leaves her feeling like she didn’t actually rest)
I slept really well last night, but I did dream. Although the dreaming didn't leave me feeling without rest. However, I had a very special dream about my grandmother who raised me. She has also passed away. […] I feel really good today. I feel very clear with great energy. Thank you, Camille.

I am so grateful to have found Camille.
I met Camille last year. I was facing so many road blocks and challenges in my life and I was blessed enough to meet Camille. Not only is she a gifted healer, colon hydrotherapist, phenomenal in the practice of chi kung, etc.. she also has an uncanny ability to REALLY relate to someone.
The first time I met with Camille, she performed Chi Kung on me for many stomach/digestive problems. I felt a sense of relief and calm almost instantly. My stomach also felt so much better. As I talked with her more, opened up to her, I felt my body opening up as well. Almost as if I could finally breathe again. Almost as if she made me feel safe or ok to release everything I had been holding in.
This girl is just so rad - I really can't even begin to explain all of the ways in which she genuinely cares about her clients. Again - that "instant" friend/companionship factor coming into play. Camille even gave me the name of a life coach/acupuncturist to see who may further help me. Sure enough he was tremendously helpful to me in my transition here as well.
The last time I saw Camille, just a couple of weeks back, she managed to change everything in my life - yet once again. We were talking and she gave me the words, and the strength to make a move I was really on the fence about. I was paralyzed by my fears and she somehow released that fear from me and gave me the courage to move forward. This visit was so powerful and stuck with me so intensely - I knew the decision I had to make as soon I started my car ignition to leave my appt.
I don't know exactly how to summarize how powerful her effect on people is. She's like that old friend you haven't seen in years but can somehow pick up with over a cup of coffee as if just a few days had passed.
I highly recommend getting in touch with Camille. She's really, really great.

I just completed a month long cleanse and decided to get a colonic as part of the detoxification process. This was my first colonic, and I really had no idea which business to choose. I trusted my husband's intuition, and we decided to go with Alchemy Healing Arts, owned by Camille Xochitl Goss. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Camille and my overall experience with her. She provided a warm and comforting environment, took her time with the session, and offered words of advice, wisdom, and compassion. She is incredibly intelligent, knows a wealth of information about health and well-being, and is extremely thoughtful. Camille is a beauty through and through. I plan to see her for Chi Nei Tsang sessions and am looking forward to being in her presence again. I positively and encouragingly recommend her.
Going on intuition and pure guts, I chose Camille to perform some delicate, humbling, and ultimately transformational work on my intestinal system and overall self. I want to say I love this woman, so I will: I doubt anyone else could have made me feel more at ease, in more competent and caring hands, who practices with more grace, knowledge, and wisdom, than Camille. She covers the spiritual, psychological, emotional, and physical aspects of healing from a perspective I'd neither heard of nor considered. All this in an earth-bound, grounded package. Both times I left in a state of relaxed alertness, very present in my body. I am so grateful for coming across this sensitive and knowing creature. She comes recommended with the highest accolades.
