We had the good fortune of connecting with Micheala Sanders and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Micheala, can you talk to us a bit about the social impact of your business?
I believe my business, Nouri Energi, helps my communities by providing touch in pandemic times. Even if it wasn’t for the current social climate, I believe touch is innately important to every being and still would be the top gift of my work. I believe Nouri Energi is a catalyst for nourishing one’s self. I believe the fact that we use smoke medicine before and after each client; gives the client balance and ease. There is energetic cleansing from multiple sources throughout a session at Nouri Energi that lifts a lot of spiritual smog and the burdens of energetic weight from day-to-day life. We invite our clients to receive care, be balanced, and serenity of mind. This gives our communities empowerment, motivation, and mental strength in the real world.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Nouri Energi is a modern take on indigenous practices and healing. We blend Ancestral ways with classic massage and sports performance stretching, energy medicine, sound, aromatherapy, and an urbanized luxury spa aesthetic. We call this Ancestral Therapeutics. We encourage you to heal yourself as we hold space for you as the healing is ignited.

I am most proud about making my clients feel safe and welcomed to receive bodywork. I am always humbled by how safe and cared for my clients feel during a session. It is my unspoken must have for my clients; and that’s to feel safe, heard, and held in high consideration.

It has taken me a long time to decipher through all of my training to be able to integrate it all in a way that would fit a business model. The biggest challenge has been getting the visions in my head out in the world for others to experience. I have offered freebie sessions to friends and family to experiment with the flow of how a session will go until I deemed it right for clients. I have offered energetic cleansing for free at festivals and farmer’s markets to test the needs of my communities. This wasn’t an easy process because you have to literally fight against your own fear and self-talk or ignore it completely. I have a personal push where if it invokes fear then I have to do it; no holding back. Once I put myself and ideas out there if it’s not 100% successful then I get 100% resources and support that I didn’t know was out there. I have also learned not to get any readings before big business moves. It’s more of a superstition but I’ve noticed I will delay a business idea after a reading instead of going forward with my initial motivation and drive.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Eyebrow Threading by Nisha is my favorite eyebrow artist for brow threading. She can see the magical shape in your natural brow. When she’s finished it looks like she drew them on. She’s also gifted at fixing other eyebrow threading mishaps. You can find her on Yelp.

Then I would suggest a Metaphysical Store jaunt. SpiritWays off of Colfax Ave and St Paul for one of a kind finds and crystals that are continuously in the sun and moon light. Herb and Arts for herbs, resins, oils, and insight. They have many readers and intuitives working with them. They are located on Colfax Ave and Race. Last on the jaunt would be Tibet Imports on 6th Ave and Washington street. I would get a Vedic Astrology reading (comes with a Mala based upon your reading) and pick up some Mala kits and other goodies.

I would have tacos at Unos Mas across from Tibet Imports or go to Anise off of Broadway and 9th Ave for curried pho.
