Hi, my name is Jennifer Wise and my son and I are the owners of Enchanted Essence and I want to tell you a bit about myself and why I started Enchanted Essence. I am a 40+ year old single mom of an awesome tween named Ian. He is my pride and joy as well as my best friend and co-owner of Enchanted Essence. I don’t know how I would survive without him. You see, in September 2010 I had a medical procedure that was going to give me my life back from chronic pain caused by an accident during my childhood but something went wrong and I ended up in worse condition. After a few months of physical therapy, it was apparent that I was not going to be able to return to my career and I had to file for SSDI.The condition I was left is called Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) or Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). If you have never heard of this disease, I am not too surprised. Many doctors have not heard of it either! RSD/CRPS is a rare chronic pain disease that effects the sympathetic nervous system and happens to be the most painful form of chronic pain known to man. This means it is more painful than cancer, childbirth or even amputating a finger. There is currently no cure for this debilitating disease and very few treatments. Since the disease presents itself differently in everyone, the response to the few known treatments differ as well. Anyway, I was not responding well to the treatments and I had become tired of medications with terrible side effects so I began to experiment with essential oils and Reiki. Essential Oils have been used for medicinal purposes as far back as the Bible and are still used in holistic medicine today. Reiki Healing Energy has been used since the early 1900's and is defined as a non-physical healing made up of life force energy. The more I used my personalized organic lotion and body butter with Essential Oils and added a daily Reiki treatment to help my disease, the better and better I began to feel.
Since I was beginning to feel better I wanted to learn more so I decided to further my education in the field of holistic medicine and I became a Certified Aromatherapist and a Reiki Master. So that is where the idea for Enchanted Essence was born! Since I was getting such amazing relief from such a debilitating disease I just had to share these gifts to help others too. I hope you will allow me to help you the way they have helped me!
Namaste - Jennifer
