SPIRITUAL HEALING PRACTITIONER
I’ve always taken baths.
I actually took the shower out of my house some 20 odd years ago; now willing guests are transported in an aromatic healing soak and skeptical guests become instant converts.
It seems all roads led me to Spiritual Bathing. A lifetime of love and fascination with scents and oils and potions. As a kid I mashed herbs from my grandmother’s garden, and drank water swirling with flower petals. These days, my countertops are full of tinctures and essences, jars of herbs and flowers, and my bookshelves bow with books on ancient wisdoms and nature and beauty and rituals.
Then my passion for rituals and bathing led me to Rosita Arvigo’s home deep in the rainforests of Belize, signing up for Spiritual Healing courses completely on instinct. I was mesmerized while initiated into the world of medicinal plants joining flower and herb energies infused in water with intention and prayer. I was eyewitness and recipient of experiences that transformed us all and my belief in this healing ritual became profoundly cemented.
320 Spiritual Baths later, baths in Serbia, France, Greece and all corners of the US, I can heartfully say this:
I have witnessed remarkable healings and transformations. I’ve listened to clients’ bath experiences I wouldn’t believe if I hadn’t been there myself. Tears. Laughter. Deep meditations. Visions. Closures. Manifestations. Animal spirit guides that show up nearly every time.
This powerfully transformative work, guided by Ixchel and the 9 Maya spirits, moves the healing vibrational energies of infused waters over and through every cell of your being. Read the testimonials page for yourself.
Come with an open heart and be prepared; this is no simple splash of water.
My favorite part was Jan. I knew she understood me, cared and wanted to make the experience personal so I got the most out of it. I felt I could be really honest with her. I also liked how she ran through all the things she put in my bath and gave me that information to read and keep. Thank you Jan, for the time, energy, love and intention you put into my bath. You’re a kind, caring, special and beautiful person.
Jan made the experience for me; she was excellent. She really wanted to understand my issues. I felt so at ease like I could tell her anything. Days before we would speak about my issues so she had time to plan the experience and make it bespoke to what I needed. It made me feel very special. Plus, I found her an inspirational person who I was lucky to meet.
