Meet Our Practitioners
During my journey of personal development and growth, I found solace in Zen meditation and Buddha’s teachings. Part of my journey is letting go of what no longer serves me - Retail Therapy at Atelier. I had a vision to recreate a space where people can feel BLISS and are encouraged to begin their healing journey. BLISS Heart Mind & Body Collective is the result of that vision, bringing "heart-centered" and authentic practitioners together.
My team and I are excited and eager to share the knowledge and gifts that will trigger your innate ability to heal and to maintain optimal potential – physically, mentally, and emotionally.
Much Love & Namaste, ARA

One could say that being an entrepreneur literally runs in ARA's (Arlene Aranzamendez) blood. While growing up in the Philippines, her mother was a entrepreneur and set an invaluable example regarding how to conceptualize, execute and operate a business. This experience combined with her innate desire to create led her to study Business Management and Computer Graphics Design.
In 2004, ARA founded her own web design and branding company, Aranzamendez Design. Her company helped small and medium-sized businesses successfully launch their brand from the ground up. She also helped give "facelifts" to 100-plus-year brands that were in desperate need of reconnecting with their modern-day consumer base. The core success of her business was the ability to “emotionally brand” – creating designs that made emotional connections in a strategic way.
ARA has lived and breathed creativity ever since her days growing up in her family’s fine jewelry business. In 2014, she founded ADORN USA to showcase her voice as a jewelry designer with her signature entrepreneurial spirit. This year, she was inspired to create the Chakra Therapy jewelry line by a sense of going back to nature. With the busy world we live in, most of us have forgotten that we are part of this beautiful world in which we live. Being a vital part of nature moves us to care about and protect our natural surroundings, leading to a more sustainable world for us all.
ARA is available for Crystal Healing and Chakra Balancing accompanied with a guided meditation. She will realign your subtle bodies and bring yourself back into rhythm with your life’s natural path and healing on all levels, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
ARA resides in Cincinnati with her husband, two children and Bichon, Max.
About Chris Albaugh
Chris Albaugh is a healer of the past, friend in the present, and guide to a higher path of our tomorrow. His life story, like yours, has been full of ups and downs, twists and turns, met and unmet expectations. What he realizes now is this is exactly what has awakened him, to higher universal principles that unify us as human beings. As a Master of Reiki, he is deeply aware of the universal, unconditional energy surrounding all of life as well as sensing what separates us into unique individuals.
Perception, belief and our unique life experience is what makes each of us special and one of a kind.

He believes that it is possible to reprogram both conscious and subconscious thinking, feeling, and being to raise the frequency of energy and create mutual happiness, health, and harmonious relationships. After all, at the core, this is what we each authentically desire. Personally, he has known many of the shadow areas of life. He has always been curious to experience life versus observing it. At times, this has led him down the dark roads of the unknown - he has struggled with and overcome depression, addiction, and many forms of mental and emotional victimization. Now, as a healer and coach, he offers compassion as others navigate similar circumstance.
His goal and passion is to be of service. Over time, he has developed a unique life enhancing process called GAUGE, which stands for Gratitude, Awareness, UNITY, Growth and Energy. It is his privilege to share these principles and assist you In accepting the beauty and truth of your Self.
