...The storefront of Holistic Journey closed on July 2nd, 2015.
Holistic Journey Store – Swansea (facebook page) was renamed to Holistic Journey Massage & Wellness,
to reflect Jennifer's new personal direction of practicing healing massage and bodywork while balancing her home and family.
...I would like to express my sincere gratitude for the many individuals who have visited and enjoyed the
gift of Holistic Journey, at a festival, the kiosk on Scott AFB or in-store in Belleville or Swansea, over the past 6+ years.
It was my dream to bring my heart-centered business to this community, from a 2006 idea to reality started in 2010....
In March 2011 I had created a place where health-minded folks could learn more about spirituality, chakras,
and metaphysics in general, while picking up some meditation supplies.
I am blessed for my experiences, the smiles, the tears and the wisdom that I was given through the process.
I am now called to help others through a different avenue. I know that I fulfilled my original goal of making spirituality more accessible in this area and have realized it is time to let go of this location and the retail shop at this time.
Thank you for your part in my journey..... ~Jenn
