What we're about
Central PA Holistic Network is a professional network with soul. Holistic professionals gather monthly to connect, educate, share ideas, trade services, grow as professionals, and work together to bring holistic services to the mainstream!
Members include massage therapists & bodyworkers, nutritional consultants, holistic nurses, chiropractors, acupuncturists, holistic retailers, psychotherapists, intuitive readers, yoga instructors, aromatherapists, & many other businesses supporting a holistic lifestyle.
The Central PA Holistic Network began with just 8 massage therapists in January 2015 who gathered for a business goal setting meetup. The event was so inspiring and collaborative, that they decided to meet every month. The group began to draw holistic professionals of all kinds, and eventually a bigger location was necessary. The network met at Perkins, Meadow Hill Family Restaurant, New Visions Books & Gifts Store, Firefly Hollow Wellness Center, & eventually found it's new home meetup location at Leg Up Farmer's Market. Each meeting hosted a different guest speaker who educated the group on holistic modalities, beekeeping, holistic psychotherapy, aromatherapy distillation, nutrition, holistic veterinary & pet care, reiki, marketing education, & other topics of appeal.
Direction & Growth
As the group grew in numbers a structure was formed. Each member voted on the direction they wanted the network to go, what type of leadership roles were needed, and what they wished to gain from their membership. The mission statement was formed as follows:
1. To bring together holistic professionals in the central PA region for a collaborative, supportive, & educational environment.
2. To increase public awareness of holistic modalities & lifestyles in order to bring holistic services to the mainstream in a grounded & understandable way.
3. To provide tools & training for holistic professionals to grow their community & businesses.
4. To provide support & inspiration to practice authentically, ethically, & cooperatively with other businesses & their clients, as well as to "walk the walk" by leading a holistic lifestyle through example.
Kara Lovehart is the founder & current president this group of inspiring professionals. Kara is a licensed massage therapist & energy medicine practitioner, professional intuitive consultant, & owner of Firefly Hollow Holistic Wellness Center in York, PA.
