Our Mission

Our Story

 Through her own struggles, Kayla has learned that wellness is a constant, ever-changing journey which we manifest through our daily work to heal ourselves and those around us on a holistic level.  It is through her own healing journey that she became inspired to create holistic healing services that are accessible to all and hold space for others to actualize their own healing.
