Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.

Healing House Institute
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? Healing House Institute offers spiritual life coaching, Reiki energy healing, and other spiritually-based programs and services. We offer three aspects to our Reiki sessions for a unique healing experience. First, I am an intuitive Reiki practitioner which means I receive divine messages that benefit your health and healing. Second, you receive angelic guidance from a healing angel card. Third, chakra balancing is included for a full energy healing experience.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business? I was inspired to start Healing House Institute after a job loss. I initially began as an empowerment speaker and co-authored two motivational books including a book with several best-selling authors and speakers. Through Divine guidance, the business evolved to offer spiritually-based programs and services.
What do you love most about your job? That it is not really a job, but more of a divine life mission that brings joy and great meaning to my life as I help others on their life journey.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten? One of the best reactions I have gotten was from my Reiki Master Teacher. After I did a distant Reiki session for her, she said she had a slight headache that went away, tightness in her low back that had let go, and she fell asleep in her chair until 4:00 AM, which never happens! That meant a lot coming from a master teacher.
