Meet Edith Arias of Healing White Owl in North Side

Today we’d like to introduce you to Edith Arias.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
My start with Reiki was back in 2009, I had gone through a really tough break up and was looking for alternative ways to heal my emotional pain. One of my friends suggested I try Reiki with Karen Forslin-Bojnansky, I had my first session and I was amazed at all the heat/energy that I felt not only emanating from her hands but what I too was sensing. It was such a powerful healing that I knew I had to learn this beautiful technique. I finished level 3 master level in 2014 and was a closeted Reiki practitioner for years, only providing sessions to my friends and family. In 2016 I decided to volunteer at Journey Care where I was able to provide Reiki to hospice patients. At the end of 2017 I found myself at a new dream job only to feel anxiety and panic attacks, I knew that I needed to follow my intuition. I left that dream job and started to promote my services by creating my website, reaching out to family and friends and I signed up with an online referral service. I continue to have one foot in the fashion world and the other foot in the alternative healing world, how my story will unfold only time will tell.

Has it been a smooth road?
The challenges that I’m facing is transitioning from being in the fashion industry for over twenty years to this new alternative healing path. Another challenge I found is that not everyone is aware of what Reiki is and therefore harder to provide a service that only a few know of.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Healing White Owl – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
Healing White Owl is about alternative healing through Reiki energy and Regression Hypnosis. I currently focus on providing Reiki, as it’s a beautiful non-invasive healing modality that heals the body, mind and spirit. Many clients don’t really understand how it works but what they do know is that they feel great after a session.

I take pride in really listening to my clients not only during the intake but during the session I sense, feel and hear what areas in their body I need to focus on. What I feel sets me apart is that I’m able to provide sessions at my location or travel to the clients home. To leave a client’s home and see how peaceful they look brings me great joy.

Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
What I like best about our city is the diversity and the great food that we have all around the city.

What I least like about the city is the traffic, it seems that it gets worse every year especially around summer time.
