My Mobile Healing Business
After a few years building up my skill set and my network, I am happy to say that I am a professional healer and I’d like to tell you about my mobile healing business. When I first got started all I knew was that I wanted to leave my 9-5 and focus on my love of traveling and healing so I worked with a Life Coach from Tuatha Muse to figure out out my focus, and they recommended that I work with an HBIC HQ consultant to create my plan of attack and make my dream a reality.
At first I began my business by offering my services for free in order to build my skills and network, in other words, I volunteered to work at the events I loved the most and was already traveling to. I built up my network and the community began to know me and trust me as someone they could come to for healing. I was finally ready to launch my business and put those plans into action.
I now work with local teams to provide safety and healing services at events like Burning Man, Lightning in a Bottle, and Comic Con. No matter where the event is it’s my responsibility to create a safe and inviting space for people to take the time they need to heal and relax so they can get back to the event. Some of the services I provide at these events range from basic first-aid, yoga and meditation sessions, massage therapy and spirtual/body work. I would like to share a few of my favorite things I keep in my mobile healing space.
I keep my set of Jade Massage Stones in my mobile healing space at all times because they can be used heated or not. For some massage, meditation, and chakra alignment sessions it’s more appropriate to use a room temperature stone. However, I love the versatility that I can also provide a deep tissue hot stone massage with this jade stone set as well. I like to set these outside during the day at Burning Man to warm them naturally. At the end of the day when the sun goes down and the chill starts to set in, these stones, warmed by the Burning Man sun, feel amazing.
Sometimes I don’t have access to electricity in my mobile healing space. I embrace that as part of the creative aspect of experiencing an outdoor festival. You have to make the best of what you have and try to combine as many functions into what you choose to pack. I keep a store of these 2-in-1 massage candles for my outdoor festival mobile healing space because most of my indoor event spaces don’t allow open flame even from candles. These provide light, ambiance, aromatherapy, and massage lotion all in one. The travel jar keeps them safe for use time and time again. And yes, candles can melt in the heat, depending on where the event is, but I can say from experience that these can easily be used no matter what.
Of course I always have my essential oil set with me always in my mobile healing space. I use these in my aromatherapy diffuser and for massage. And these little essential oil bottles last forever and don’t take up much space in my bag. I put a few drops into a spray bottle to cleanse the air and spray on cushions and my massage table cover. Bonus tip: put a drop of essential oil on a washcloth or sock and toss it in your clothes trunk to keep things fresh. I pretty much use this essential oil set every day at home and on the road.
As I said before, sometimes I don’t get the luxury of an electricity hookup at these events so I have to make my own. These fairy lights provide much needed light and a relaxing and inviting ambiance in my mobile healing space. People come to the healing tent 24 hours a day so we have to be prepared and these solar powered fairy lights make sure we can be safe and available for those who need us. I use these in my tiny house and in my van as well, it’s one of those no-nonsense purchases that I just had to invest in for all of my spaces.
This has to be one of my favorite things that I keep in my mobile healing space. It’s a wireless speaker, aromatherapy diffuser, and LED light all in one. I love that I can use this even when I don’t have access to electricity. The natural look of the design matches the feel that I try to achieve in my healing spaces. I use this for both aromatherapy and sound during my yoga and meditation sessions and then I move it to the massage area. You can change the color of the light to use for chakra alignment sessions and light-therapy sessions. This wireless speaker, color-changing light, and oil diffuser is perfect for creating instant atmosphere in any space really.
