Here at Balanced By Oils Holistic Fellowship we have a strong network of healers, movers and shakers in the Holistic and natural wellness realms. We also support many causes and feel that if money is to be spent and traded for goods and services, that we should patron local sources and support local causes. On this page you will find many of our partnerships, information on healers in our network, and possibly your area, as well as ways to support those in our network and community. Please feel free to share this page in any public form in its original format and submit any requests for additions or deletions from this form to the Contact Us page.

Victoria Willoughby. "Through natural “Wholistic” means I hope to offer information on the tools I use to create a life that is healthy, wealthy and wise. Through the gifts of our Creator/God/Goddess/Universe (One Voice) or whatever other label resonates for you, I believe we each have the opportunity to take charge of our own lives and move forward from a place of cause, rather than waiting to see what effect life has as it happens around us.
My goal is to offer you a different perspective on the word Responsibility. Often its used as a term of blame or burden. . . It’s your responsibility to take care of it . . . It’s all my responsibility, whatever your feeling about the word is. To my mind, it means Response Ability, the ability to respond to what the world contains and offers at this time.
I wish to offer to share my “tool belt” that gives me much more ability to respond in the way I choose, the ability to respond to the demands of life."
Vicki is our Head Reiki Master and guiding light for healing energy and serves as the roots for our Usui Reiki lineage bestowed upon Rev. Wood and many other healers in our network. Join Vicki on Facebook to follow her for daily light offerings and guidance
