Have you heard of Seimei? I haven't until I met Katie Fasciano, owner of Seimei Healing located in Westwood, New Jersey. It's a non-touch practice originated from Japan to ease pain, illness (even the common sore throat or cough), anxiety and more.
We met through networking and we instantly clicked! Not only we are mothers of girls, but we live and work in Westwood, New Jersey. She shared her emotional story of losing her eldest daughter to cancer and how she had found Seimei.
