A Chat with A Healing Place, Springfield
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I am both a Usui and Karuna Reiki master and teacher, trained by William Lee Rand at the International Center for Reiki Training. I am additionally a certified hypnotherapist by the NGH. My sessions promote holistic health, deep relaxation, and the integration of mind, body, and spirit.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I’ve been drawn to holistic health for many years and eventually felt the need to create a business where I can offer these services to the general public. I feel stress is a major contributor to many health concerns, both emotional and physical, and wanted to serve clients in reducing stress.
What do you love most about your job?
My clients are my favorite part of my job. I love focusing on my clients’ particular needs and tailoring a session that serves them and their areas of concern. I enjoy providing a safe and professional space for them to truly be themselves and find a new level of deep relaxation.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
“I received an incredible Reiki treatment from Elliott Friday afternoon. I felt so disharmonious and out of touch with life, his guidance definitely brought me into balance and restored feelings of security and peace. I can’t rave enough about Elliott’s talents.”
