You're IT River's Edge Reiki!
Three questions with Lori Haggerty, owner of River's Edge Reiki.
Why did you start your business?
I was working in a high-stress environment for about 6 years. During that time I began to experience physical manifestations of my stress. I began training in alternative therapies to combat my stress and alleviate the medical issues I was developing. I trained in all levels of Reiki, began learning meditation techniques, studied craniosacral therapy and began my journey into Shamanic healing. I began an in-depth study of the mind-body connection and the effects of stress on our health. These methods helped tremendously and gave me the spiritual insight to understand that I needed to make a change in my career so that I could help others who were suffering as I was. Hence, the birth of River’s Edge Reiki.
Finish this sentence in regard to your business: I wish I could...
I wish I could tell everyone the importance of self-care... of de-stressing their lives and slowing down just enough to enjoy life and perhaps stave off illness.
