Judy Meinen: Angel Care Healing Touch

Tell us a little about yourself:
I founded Angel Care Healing Touch in 1997 and have been doing business since. Prior to that, I worked as an RN on the Pediatric wings of several area hospitals since 1985, and still maintain my RN license. I’m also a mother of four, with 3 grandsons.

What service or product do you offer?
Healing Touch, Reiki sessions and classes, Intuitive/psychic readings, Angel Therapy, Hypnosis, Biofeedback for Stress Analysis with the QXCI, wholistic health care and nutritional guidance.  Also, I do workshops and presentations on Angel Therapy, psychic readings, energy healing, etc.

What got you involved in your business and how long have you been involved?
I had been introduced to Healing Touch upon returning to the UWEC for advancing my nursing degree.  I took the first Healing Touch class offered through the UWEC  in 1997 and have been interested and involved in energy healing techniques and wholistic health care ever since.  I received a lot of helpful guidance for my life and was able to enjoy more peace of mind, pain relief (from migraines and back pain), and stress relief with the use of these techniques and the beneficial people involved in my learning process of Healing Touch, Reiki, tarot and angel card readings.

What is your favorite part of what you do?
Watching people learn, grow emotionally, and become empowered to be the most important person they know and improve their lives all around.

How would I go about obtaining your services or products?
Call us at 715-832-7250 for more information or to set an appointment and/or go to the website www.angelcarehealingtouch.com.  I will be holding a series of tarot classes once a month Feb. 17, March 17, and April 21 at the Altoona Community Room near the Library.  Feel free to stop in and pick up a brochure.  The Volume One, Second Opinion, and the Leader Telegram also have information on the classes I hold.

Do you have an office or storefront? If so, what are the hours the public is welcome?
Yes!  My new office is at 2130 Brackett Avenue, Suite B, Eau Claire, WI.  The Hubbell Eye Clinic is the building we are in along with Klug Chiropractic.  My office hours are Monday through Friday 9AM to 4PM by appointment only; I will do occasional Saturdays for a special fee.  I share the space with Massage Therapist Diana White and with Harmony Massage, owned by Anna Martinson.

What do you think is one of the most important things for a woman to know when going into business for themselves?
Be realistic about the length of time it takes to “make a profit.” Too many people go into business thinking they will be making money in a 3 month period of time.  It usually takes 3-5 YEARS (not months) to actually see that first dollar of profit.  Be patient and be educated on running a business – take classes at Western Dairyland (best thing I ever did!) and learn the basics of running a business; talk to other business women about how they got started, how much money they put into it and what amount of time and energy they put into making their business work in the first couple of years.  ALSO:  Make sure what you do for your business is something that you are absolutely passionate about – it should feel like playing instead of working.

Are there any tips you would like to share about balancing life and work?
Make yourself the most important person you know.  Make sure you are getting your needs met and are not overtired, exhausted, or feeling resentful about how much time you spend on your business vs. how much time you have for yourself.

Get your family involved in helping with your business as they are willing to:  just word of mouth advertising is more beneficial than you can imagine!  The family is usually pretty good at seeing the areas that need boosting or that aren’t working for you – LISTEN to them and adapt their ideas that you reasonably can.  Your family’s support is important to you and them.

I’m fortunate that my husband is the Administrative Assistant for Angel Care Healing Touch, he does a great job and we can easily talk about how our day went.  Don’t overbook yourself (got that feedback from my “secretary”) – schedule in your relaxation time the same way you schedule appointments and education time.  If you are getting tired, take a nap or just give yourself an extra 10 minutes to sit back and close your eyes.

Do you have any upcoming things (promotions, events, etc) you would like to let us know about?
On March 13, I will be hosting a Psychic Fair at the Ramada Convention Center, Eau Claire. There will be vendors, readers, healers, and also classes on Palmistry, Stone Healing, Animal Spirits, and Angels! I will be holding a series of tarot classes once a month Feb. 17, March 17, and April 21 at the Altoona Community Room near the Library.  I will be scheduling upcoming Reiki classes and will be planning my fall classes for Angel Therapy, Tarot card reading, Intuitive Guidance, Earth Angels, Pendulum use, etc.  I’m also looking for feedback from the public for what they would like to see me do classes on in the near future. All upcoming events are posted on my web page: http://www.angelcarehealingtouch.com

Is there anything else you would like to share?
I am currently taking classes through Clayton College for Natural Health towards my Masters of Science in Natural Health to better serve my QXCI and natural health clients as well as myself.  I’m excited to share any information on weight loss since I lost 135 lbs. between Jan. 28th, 2008 and August 10, 2009.  I’m feeling the best I have felt in years and really want to help others achieve their weight loss goals.  Weight Watchers is having Open House parties each Saturday in February and open (free) enrollments into April of this year.

  1. Judy,
    I love all what you said about being a business woman. I’m looking forward to the day when I can share so much good news about my Healthy Girls Business. I feel it’s happening right now.
