What is a Medical Intuitive?

A medical intuitive is a psychic or intuitive counselor who specializes in perceiving information concerning the human body.

That’s me all right.

This practice dates back to ancient Egypt with Imhotep and Greece with Asclepius. The Oracles at Delphi and other sacred sites were consulted for health concerns. In more modern times, the practice of using intuition or clairvoyance for medical information dates back to the 19th century with Phineas Parkhurst Quimby, whose intuitive healing practice began in 1854.

The amazing Edgar Cayce in the early 20th century was one of the most well known medical clairvoyants. We modern intuitives owe a great debt to both Dr. Norm Shealy who, along with Caroline Myss, first coined the term medical intuitive. Many medical intuitives ‘see’ within the body systems in great detail and determine primarily physical causes of disease. They work with doctors in clinical settings to assist in divining what our current technology can not yet see.

My work goes beyond the physical body into the seemingly invisible subtle bodies to find actual cause of a problem and to offer a long distance energy healing treatment. A problem can stem from a number of disruptions, many of them energetic. In some cases, there may be layers of disruptions, caused either by injuries or other traumatic events, which need to be cared for in stages, over time in person or long distance.

Sessions can provide you with:
• On-going support for enhanced wellness
• Help to remove energetic blockages and mental, emotional and/or spiritual causes for chronic ailments
• Techniques for unearthing deep rooted patterns and programs
• Energetic support for deep level transformation and self-empowerment
• Spiritual development tools to unite spirit, body, mind and emotion with the soul’s conscious intent
• Keys to unlocking conscious spiritual evolution

I also offer Personal Energy Coaching to help you maximize your wellness and personal evolution. Email for more information. Click here to find out how to schedule an appointment with Cristina.

Disclaimer: Although a Medical Intuitive can often see what a traditional examination may overlook, a session with Cristina Smith is not recommended as a replacement for medical treatment nor should it be construed as medical advice.

How Did I Become a Healer/Intuitive?

RCA WinnerHealing chose me and when it did, I accepted. I had a profound experience at the pyramid of the Moon in Teotihuacan, Mexico when I was 14. On a trip with my parents to the sacred site, I suddenly knew right where to go and left the tour group we were traveling with, much to my mother’s horror. I was compelled in a trance-like manner to climb the stairs and go to a particular chamber. It was a though I had stepped through a portal into another world. I stood at that spot for what seemed like an eternity, though was probably only a few minutes. I felt and saw powerful, brilliant energy surround me and then I received a gift -energy started flowing in my hands- and it hasn’t stopped since.

Since then, I have been working with that energy. I was later invited to work with a team of healers as an apprentice doing the work of Dr. Mel Rees. My medical intuition skills were honed there. I worked on that team for three years and then began my own practice in the early 1990s. Since then, I have melded my two loves into a whole of subtle energy – energetic healing and the energetic changes that occur due to being deeply on a spiritual path. I am involved in the global energy medicine movement and sponsor Subtle Energy Gatherings in the San Diego region for folks who are interested in these fascinating realms.

I am a member of the International Association of Medical Intuitives. Nominated in 2012 and 2013 on About.com as Favorite Medical Intuitive, I was honored to be the winner of that award in 2013. Thank you to all who made that a reality!


After having lower back pain for over 10 years, including numerous medical and chiropractor visits, I finally had the opportunity to visit Cristina. After just one of her energetic healings, my back pain practically went away. She pulled the same feat a couple of years later after I fell and broke my arm. Her immediate treatment fixed my arm, almost to the dismay of the orthopedic I ended up seeing. Some things just work in this world, and Cristina’s understanding of healing energy is one of them.” – James Patiño, Consultant
