The Entrepreneur

'I always knew I wanted to run my own business,' says Carly Penfold. 'I now operate three!'

Carly has a home-based business offering her signature Metaphysical massage, a combination of Shiatsu, Acupressure, Reiki, Therapeutic Touch, and Chakra Balancing. Carly has had an interest in tarot card readings since high school, and after seeking out mentors and training, now offers Tarot Card Readings locally and worldwide.

She is the event organizer for the Holistic Market and Psychic Fair. Carly saw a need to have affordable, regular gatherings for holistic businesses. With the encouragement of fellow energy practitioners, she organizes the monthly Holistic Market & Psychic Fair at the Laurel Packinghouse. Her sales and marketing experience, coupled with her practitioner business, led her to create a market representing holistic products and services that people can easily find and sample all in one place.

A Young Living Essential Oils distributor, Carly enjoys sharing her love of all-natural and toxin-free products for personal and home use.

Combining the Physical and Metaphysical

Carly has helped people recover from injuries, work through emotional trauma, and maintain a stress-reduced life. Her energy work is therapeutic, relaxing and rejuvenating. The combination of Shiatsu, Reiki, Chakra Balancing, and Therapeutic Touch provides an overall session that combines the physical body with the emotional self. Carly also uses Tibetan singing bowls for sound healing, crystals and gemstones for earth energy healing, and aromatherapy to awaken the senses and promote a sense of calm. Carly is passionate about energy work and enjoys helping people balance the energy within themselves. Inquire with your extended health carrier, as it may be covered.

Carly readily shares her experiences and solutions with life threatening food allergies, Austism Spectrum Disorder, gluten sensitivities, thyroid and osteoarthritis.
