The search for Harmony: Body, Mind and Spirit – Biography of Janice Dirksen
Janice Dirksen has spent the past 11 years on a journey to enhance her physical, emotion and spiritual wellbeing. Having battled IBS since a very young age, her passion has always been to help others with their own health issues as she has done for herself. Therefore she made the decision to get out of office work (Office Administration CDI College Kingston, Ontario 1994) and pursue this dream. She realized that through using energy healing as a compliment to traditional healing techniques she could lead a harmonious life: body, mind and spirit.
Janice now uses this knowledge in energetic healing to help others. As an energy practitioner, she treats the energy body and supports the clients self-healing process. The client is the healer, Janice sees herself as the facilitator. She truly believes that beauty is from the inside out but that it is equally important to look our best to feel our best, which is why she also enjoys being a hairstylist and esthetician.
In 1998 Janice started off as a hairdresser (Hairstylist St. Lawrence College Kingston, Ontario 1998 Jaguar Award of Excellence given to student with highest grade and best attendance) and later decided to expand into the field of Esthetics (Honours Certificate in Esthetics and a Certificate in Makeup Artistry School of Esthetics Rhonda Peters Kingston, Ontario 2001). Janice went from working in a salon for someone else to being self-employed within that salon and then in October of 2008, after 9 years, she made the decision to move her business to her home in Sydenham, Ontario. This move has allowed her more creative freedom in her personal and business life. She now can practise energy therapies in a peaceful relaxing environment.
Janice also enjoys being a ‘sort of stay home mom’ to her 3 children, Caitlin, Wyatt and Daniel. Her children’s activities can now be successfully fit into a flexible schedule. She can now find time to follow her passion for water-colour painting and enjoys baking and cooking for her children and boyfriend. Janice now leads a satisfied life as a well rounded, peaceful, happy, woman, mother, friend, and spa owner.
