Healing Homes

Not happy with your current layout with the new furniture you purchased? Let Healing Homes relocate these items, rehang pictures, make recommendations for new paint colors, light fixtures, mirrors, plants, etc. to provide cost effective remedies to enhance the harmony of the space. This is known as Feng Shui, the ancient Chinese practice that creates more balance and cohesiveness in your environment. Healing Homes specializes in utilizing the clients's existing furnishing and artifacts to enhance the individual's personal “chi “or energy of their space.


Acknowledging her intuitive nature and sixth sense for furniture placement, Marta began to incorporate the elements of Feng Shui as well as energy clearing and space blessings into her work. The result is a space that is visually pleasing, but energizing and peaceful. These techniques are applied for staging a home for selling purposes.

Energy clearing can help invigorate any space. Using the ancient technique of smudging, old energy is removed and new energy is welcomed in. This practice is effective for REALTORS and others trying to sell their homes, or for families moving into a recently purchased home.

We can also make suggestions where to shop on the internet or for retail shopping. Shopping packages are available for cost conscious clientele.
