Owner of Busy Bees starting a new Business

posted 13 Jun 2017, 11:53 by Busy Bees Nursery   [ updated 24 Jun 2017, 10:31 ]

My new business is starting in July: Energy Healing for Kids

What is energy healing
Energy healing is a holistic therapy, I act a channel, enabling the energy to flow through myself to the child and scan their energy field to find any blockages, which I can help them to release. I am a Reiki practitioner and have been practicing for about 10 years now. I can work in several ways depending on the individual I am supporting: by placing my hands on the child while channeling healing energy, by beaming the energy towards them when they are close by, or by send healing to them from a distance.
  Energy Healing promotes a sense of well being and can help to let go of feelings of unhappiness, anger, worry and stress, it can help to balance emotions and calm excess mental
Activity. It can also support children with physical illness or injury, aiding recovery, re balancing energy and reducing pain.

From July17 I am offering the following, in exchange for feedback on my new business venture. 2 initial home visits for free followed by 3 free distance hearings followed by a 3rd home visit healing and to discuss you and your child’s experience of the healing. Home Visits available in Edinburgh only, if you live further away I can send 6 distance hearings for free.
