The energy was off the charts at the grand opening of the Holistic Healing and Wellness Center of Longboat Key.
On Sept. 12 at 5 p.m, Mediterranean Plaza, located at 595 Bay Isles Road, was packed with Longboat Key residents and Chamber of Commerce members.
Owner Medge Jaspan welcomed everyone with her calming and positive energy — an example of her “It's all about the energy” slogan.
The Holistic Healing and Wellness Center is a Tesla BioHealing Medbed Center. According to the Tesla BioHealing website, this technology is a medical device based on discoveries by Nikola Tesla.
“Tesla really valued tone technology,” said Jaspan. "When you are in a place that has a lot of noise, you feel that energy in your body. But when you are in this frequency with a more relaxed setting, your nervous system begins to really let go and your circulation begins to slow down. The (Tesla) technology creates this frequency so that when you are sick or stressed, this state of pure balance will help you heal that stressful energy.”
Jaspan said that she has the Tesla technology all over her house and never leaves home without it. Through this Tesla BioHealing method, she offers services including stress release, anger and anxiety management, mindfulness classes and spiritual counseling.
Jaspan discovered this technology after she accidentally fell in a store and couldn’t move her arm for three months. She tried the Tesla BioHealing method and said that it started easing her pain in about four hours.
Jaspan was born and raised in France. She and her husband Michael moved to the area two years ago. She also paints abstract art and owns a vegan clothing line.
The positive healing energy was integrated in everything at the opening. Kimberly Knox of "In the Kitchen with KK" made an organic food spread to keep encouraging the theme of holistic living. The healthy spread included a raw beet salad and vegan double chocolate cupcakes. There were a variety of different fruits, cheeses, nuts and vegetables. They also charged the water with the Tesla BioHealing technology.
“This is something new for the area and something totally different that I think we need,” said Andrew Vac, real estate consultant and broker.
To make the opening official, Mayor Ken Schneier led the ribbon cutting with help from the Chamber.
“The deep work that I do is about teaching people how to love themselves,” said Jaspan. “Because until you love yourself, nobody can love you. Until you have accepted every little thing of who you are, there is nothing happening.”
