Energy Healer Briana Pontius, Founder of Touch of Nature Healing in New Castle, PA, in front of a waterfall with hands in prayer.


I started practicing physical therapy in 2012. Through facilitating pain relief treatments for my patients, I found touch to be an effective tool. That is when I became interested in studying the benefits of touch. I became a Licensed Massage Therapist in 2018. 

Reiki Practitioner and Energy Healer Briana Pontius is inspired by the healing power of nature and enjoys spending time among the trees.

On my journey I have been drawn to different healing modalities. These have supported me in working at a mind, body, and soul level. I have participated in training from John Barnes Myofascial Release, Upledger CranioSacral Therapy, Reiki from the American Reiki Master Association, and frequency healing with energy healers. I have found that combining energy work with other modalities such as physical therapy or chiropractic work aides in the overall healing process for an individual.

"My awareness of touch deepens my ability to sense and feel. That is what led me to be passionate about healing."

- Briana Pontius

I have a deep appreciation for art, music, literature and all the phenomena of nature. I enjoy traveling, hiking, photography and am fascinated by learning about different cultures. Learning more about how people celebrate life inspires me. I come with an open heart, as I feel every human deserves compassion and empathy. My soul purpose is to guide others in ways of creating a self-sustaining temple within and to bring awareness back to self. I am grateful for all of the opportunities that have led me to become who I am today.

Love and Light,
