Denise Dacier, owner of Hope and Harmony: Holistic Health and Healing, LLC, always knew she was a healer and
that her life’s purpose is to help people. A registered nurse since 2004 and a nurse practitioner since 2013, she is now actively pursuing a certification in holistic nursing through the American Holistic Nurses Association. For Denise, the holistic nursing designation is a step toward further aligning her professional practice with her personal philosophy.
Denise attended the RISBDC’s startup workshop, The Right Foot, in early 2018 when she was considering developing
a business that incorporated her holistic health philosophy. She found the workshop informative and learned the
“dos & don’ts” of business planning. With the support of RISBDC Central Rhode Island Director Amit Basnet, Denise launched her business in August of 2019. With a strong start, she has a growing clientele and continues to work with Amit on business development and marketing.
Holistic nursing is a practice that honors relationship- centered care and the interconnectedness of self, others, nature, and spirituality. With a goal of healing the whole person, it focuses on protecting, promoting and optimizing health and wellness, and incorporates complementary and alternative modalities.
Denise’s journey began when she started to explore yoga and Reiki as ways to combat the increasing stress of working in today’s healthcare field. She was so transformed by her experiences that she decided to enter into a holistic professional program and is now a Certified Usui and Shamballa Reiki Master/Teacher. She also loves working
with her gemstones, crystals, essential oils, herbs and her cards as an Intuitive Reader. Denise describes herself as a lifelong learner and reports that her personal self-healing experiences, along with her professional background working with individuals of all races, genders, and ages during times of stress and crises, benefit those seeking assistance on their own healing journeys.
Hope and Harmony describes its services as promoting spiritual and self development which lead to a more tranquil and balanced life. “We help you to process negativity so that you are able to focus on bringing the highest vibrations into your life,” says Denise. “Book a session today to experience an energy healing treatment that will leave you feeling relaxed and re-energized!”
