On Wednesday, May 7th, we attended the James A Haley Veteran's Hospital Mental Health Fair with the Atlantic Institute of Aromatherapy. We offered chair massage, aromatherapy, and biomat treatments to both veterans and nurses.
We love going out into the community like this. It is actually how we began.
Nyssa was inspired to pursue a career in holistic healing after a transformative experience with a volunteer chair massage team in New York after September 11th. This trip was also where the United Aromatherapy Effort, a non-profit created by aromatherapist (and Nyssa's mom) Sylla-Sheppard-Hanger. Serving those who serve runs in Nyssa's blood. It's such a beautiful exchange to give back to those who need it. It always comes back around, and then there is always more to give.
