Now more than ever before, our physical, emotional and mental wellness is front and center. Because of this, Noozhawk is proud to launch our inaugural Holistic Health and Wellness Guide!
To give our readers the tools to help improve their mental and physical health in Santa Barbara County, Noozhawk has conducted a series of interviews with local wellness practitioners and businesses.
In this interview, Noozhawk talked with Barbra Mousouris, owner of Sixth Scents Healing Center to learn more about her buisness.
Sixth Scents Healing Center
Question: What is the name of your business or practice?
Answer: Sixth Scents Healing Center
Q: Can you describe what services or products your business or practice offers?
A: Sixth Scents Healing Center offers a relaxing, supportive ocean-view office for your comfort and deep peace. Board certified clinical hypnotherapist will facilitate the reframing of any lifestyle behaviors which no longer serve your highest good, which will be effortlessly replaced on a subconscious level with healthy, joyous alternatives. Healing touch (5-level certified) is available for energy balancing and intuitive healing. Therapeutic aromatherapy blends may be custom made for clinical applications, for peace of mind, body and spirit! The highest level of client confidentiality is respected. All ages welcome including children.
Q: How does your business or practice connect with health and wellness?
A: Sixth Scents Healing Center is a holistic health center. Unhealthy addictions and habits from our past can subconsciously manifest and continue if not addressed in a nurturing, loving way. Clinical hypnotherapy in a safe space can holistically empower you to get back to the true You, the joyful essence you were created to be. Healing touch energy balancing and aromatherapy are also synergistic modalities to free up any subconscious blocks that can be self-limiting. Hypnosis has been successfully used since the 1800’s.
