Hands and heart

Massage therapy and spiritual healing make second career for Anderson woman


“I was given the gift of healing through my hands in my early thirties,” said Goss. “I always called myself a ‘closet healer.’” Goss discovered her gift one day while watching a 1980 movie called “Resurrection.”

“It was just this blast of knowingness,” said Goss. The evidence of Goss’s gift began to make itself clear through various experiences, until at one point she was involved in two life-or-death healings in the space of one week. Goss realized she had a calling that she could not ignore.

Go ahead and ask Goss how it works, but you won’t discover a lot of answers.

“I call myself the clueless healer,” Goss said as she laughed. “I just follow orders out of the right side of the brain.” That includes laying her hands lightly on or just over the client.“The heat in my hands – it’s just that divine energy flowing,” said Goss. “I’m very, very good in following guidance…. The more that I have followed guidance, the more is given to me. The work I do is very intuitive. My hands become like a magnet. There’s no really intellectually fully understanding it. I don’t try to force. I completely get myself out of the way. It’s between their soul and God what happens.”

Massage therapy seemed like a career choice that was compatible with her healing gift, so Goss went to school for it.

While Goss discovered she had quite a knack for massage therapy, it’s her healing work that draws many of her clients to her, again and again, although they often first arrive at Goss’s doorstep with skepticism.

Skeptics won over

“I was just taking a chance. I was hurting,” said Rose Ballard, now 86, from Indianapolis. After surgery on her knee in 2002, followed by fruitless physical therapy, a friend urged Ballard to visit Goss. Ballard was skeptical, but desperate.
