Welcome to MADE in Lake County! MADE introduces you to the people and stories behind local Lake County businesses. Today it is our pleasure to introduce you to Colleen Ofsanik, practitioner and owner of Lovelight Healing Center.
If one of your New Years Resolutions was to become a less stressed, happier person in 2015, look no further than the Lovelight Healing Center in Grayslake. Founded by Colleen Ofsanik in March of 2014, the Lovelight Healing Center has created a small community of loyal (and more relaxed) supporters. The Healing Center features a variety of classes and services to provide natural, alternative and affordable wellness care to the community while providing educational workshops — all in one location on Center Street.
From the moment you walk in the doors of the Lovelight Healing Center, Colleen wants you to feel at home and supported by all of the community there whether you are new to their practices or an old pro. Colleen said,
“ In the short time we have been open, we have heard many times, ‘this is exactly what I have been looking for’ and ‘the energy is so inviting here; I don’t want to leave.’ We have discovered there is a need in our community where all are welcome! We provide a feeling of ‘home’ to those who seek to discover a deeper sense of who they are, to those who seek support on their journey to wellness, to those who just want to feel better. “
Lovelight Healing Center offers upwards of 50 classes and services. Each therapist or teacher’s goal is to provide wellness care from a whole body, holistic approach. To do this, they provide services for both the physical body as well as the mind and spirit at affordable rates.
Always wanted to try yoga, but worry about looking silly trying the downward dog in front of a room full of professional yogis? The Lovelight Healing Center offers weekly yoga classes in a small setting where you can learn the practice without being judged. Other physical body services they offer are Thai massage, meditation, Reiki Certification, community acupuncture and even doula services. Ahh, I am already feeling relaxed.
Because Lovelight wants to provide care for the whole body, Lovelight also offers services for the mind, including mental health services, emotional release therapy and classes for spiritual development. They have well-educated, caring practitioners with many years of experience who offer their services at very affordable prices.
I asked Colleen what her favorite service was that she offers at the Lovelight Healing Studio. She said,
“Emotional Release Therapy is by far one of the most successful services I provide. It is an integrative therapy that includes gentle touch Reiki, Craniosacral Therapy, aromatherapy and a customized Bach Flower Remedy to take home to provide emotional support after leaving the healing center. It is helpful for those who have physical pain; behavior patterns they want to change or seek assistance in any other challenge that may be associated with retained emotions. It also assists those dealing with a current traumatic situation and post traumatic stress disorder. It is a profound experience on every level that has provided a great deal of relief to my clients.“
When I asked Colleen what her favorite part was about her job, I could hear the passion.
“Helping people feel better in every way – physically, mentally and emotionally. At Lovelight, the most rewarding experience is helping our clients feel better about themselves! Watching them transform to recognize how beautiful they are and how valuable they are is the best!“
