“Watching people walk into my office carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders and then walking out feeling lighter and their faces are even brighter makes it all worth it.” Jennifer Araneo
Before we start talking about business- what are three things you’d like the people reading this to know about you?
1. I learned “the Body Achieves what the Mind Believes” in high school when I was doing research for a public speaking class. I gave my speech on Guided Imagery.
2. I climbed Mt Fuji when I was studying in Japan.
3. I’m a born and bred Jersey girl, met my husband when we were in high school and now have three beautiful children.
What’s the best thing about working away from home?
Having my own space allows me to create a calm and peaceful sanctuary for my clients. From the essentials oils filling the air, to the subtle lighting and soft plush carpeting, when you walk into the office you immediately feel at ease.
And, conversely, what’s the worst?
I’m not home when my children walk through the door after school.
I like to ask everyone- what’s your WHY? What takes gets you into work every day?
So many people struggle with stress and anxiety. Reiki is a wonderful way to put the body in a meditative state while it rests and restores, rebalancing itself in homeostasis. Watching people walk into my office carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders and then walking out feeling lighter and their faces are even brighter makes it all worth it. Seeing the change in people is my WHY.
In five years, what does this career path look like? Or is it another?
In the next 5 years I believe more people will understand the healing benefits of reiki and the age range will widen to serve my age group and above. I recently launched Freya Divine Wellness, Gifts for the Spiritually Minded. Freya Divine offers spiritual products that accompany people looking to support their self-healing and balancing their energy. Chakra candles are now available online and in my office and within the next few months and within 5 years there will be more products available such as sage sticks, crystals, and essential oil blends.
If people want to reach you and Mind Body Hoboken, what’s the best way to do that?
