Journey to Wholeness held their official grand opening event April 13th, with local officials attending the ribbon cutting ceremony. Journey to Wholeness is a holistic healing and wellness center, located on 95th Street at New England Avenue.
Kimberley Davis, owner of Journey to Wholeness, explained her own journey to where she is today. “The Journey to Wholeness Center is the realization of a dream that began when I started my own personal journey to health, healing and wellness over 6 years ago,” explained Davis. “Working over 20 years in corporate management gave me valuable tools in business however it depleted me physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally. Stress, fatigue, and an unshakable feeling of discontentment in my personal and professional life, motivated me to go within to begin my own personal journey to wholeness. Through studying, travelling, and working with various healing practitioners all over the world I was not only able to heal my life but to discover my true life’s purpose; to be a conduit of love, light and healing to help others live their best life!”
Davis guided a tour of the establishment, showing the various areas and explaining the services offered. Local officials, including Mayor Sandra Bury, Trustee Robert Streit, Village Clerk Jane Quinlan and members of the Oak Lawn Chamber of Commerce seemed very impressed by the tour.
“It’s a beautiful space,” Trustee Streit said. “I think it will benefit the community.”
Among the services offered by Journey to Wholeness are daily yoga classes. Davis explained that the yoga classes are open to everyone, regardless of fitness level or yoga experience. She explained that their yoga classes focus on the movement of “life force energy” through the body. The goal is to enhance the overall health, wellness, balance, and strength of the individual. The yoga classes also incorporate aspects of meditation and breathing exercises.
Journey to Wholeness also offers massage services. Swedish, deep tissue, hot stone, Reiki healing, thai, reflexology, and Bio-TouchTM are all options available.
Also offered are alternative healing services. Described as holistic healing techniques, “Intuitive Healers” are certified and trained in various ways “to elevate consciousness and raise awareness allowing knowledge, wisdom and energy to flow releasing mental, emotional and physical blocks, fears, worries, distress, drama and trauma.” Heart centered hypnotherapy, dream analysis & interpretation, angel card readings, chakra balancing, and more are available.
Journey to Wholeness also offers classes and workshops focused on self-empowerment and inspiration. Classes on nutrition, feng shui, meditation, and relationships are led by instructors.
Describing her new business Davis said, “I truly feel that our journey to wholeness begins when we realize that we are already whole. The Journey to Wholeness Center is a safe, tranquil place of love and light that will provide the tools and resources needed to help people heal from within.”
Journey to Wholeness is open every day except Monday. For their hours and more information, see their website at www.journeytowholeness.org.
