The Cephalo Story
Hi, my name is Lia Nees. I am the owner and founder of Cephalo. Cephalo is the result of not only my spiritual journey, but also my professional journey. I noticed that each step of my path to wellness was better aligning me with my soul and with my Dharma, my life’s purpose. My study of hypnosis took me on a parallel path of healing myself through self-hypnosis and helping others heal themselves by building a business offering guided hypnosis, lessons in self-hypnosis, and other “mental superpower” exercises. As I tapped into the powerful subconscious mind more and more, my spirits rose, and I was truly elated to be helping others.
All I wanted was to help more people and to help others spread their reach of their own healing modalities. And I wanted to do this by setting a standard in our outreach practices, business operations, and philanthropic endeavors focused on the origins of our healing practices and areas in need of greater humanitarian efforts.
As with most developing businesses, mine took some twists and turns along the way, similar to the beautiful undulations of an Octopus’ tentacles. Also, similar to the wonderful cephalopod, I recognized the power of being in flow and adapting to our ever-changing world. As I was building Cephalo I found my true calling of helping others heal themselves through past-life explorations and trauma clearing. Also, along my way I came across wonderful people who I knew I wanted to have in my life more and who I wanted to introduce others to. Together we are the Cephalo Team, and we are here to help you along your journey to wellness and living your highest good.
Setting the Standard
I learned from an early age the importance of giving back. Integrating a practice of charity is therefore an essential tenet of Cephalo. 10% of all Cephalo profits are donated. Donations are distributed based on Clients choosing from a list of vetted non-profit organizations to designate where part of their session proceeds will go. We hope this practice of giving and the list of organizations will be an inspirational catalyst to other clients, practitioners and wellness centers. This list will expand as our business and healing modalities widen. While some of the organizations will be local and national, others will connect us with the countries where are products and services stem from.
Cephalo is also working to build an inclusive brand, one that not only respects individualism but is working to improve access to the spiritual marketplace for all, as well as recognize wonderful practitioners from diverse backgrounds. Cephalo is offering sliding scale price options for those in need who qualify for supplemental financial assistance. Our branding and marketing are based on encouraging those of various race, religion, nationality, national origin, sexual orientations, gender, gender identity, intellectual and cognitive abilities. We truly desire for all of our clients and practitioners to feel safe within our office space and as members of the Cephalo community.
Cephalo is also based on a paper-free environment using digital transactions for booking, billing and waiver forms. It’s not all about giving back, sometimes it is about taking less.
Our practices of philanthropy, inclusiveness, and environmentalism are cornerstones for Cephalo. While it was not our initial intention to publicize these practices, we ultimately concluded that we would be best serving our community and planet by sharing our ways in hopes of broader adoption by others and other businesses.
