How we came to be:

The story of Essential Energies began in 2003. The vision was to create a place where practitioners and teachers of the healing arts could gather and share their gifts with the greater community. The goal was to create a center for healing and growth. It began with Marilyn Martin (now Marilyn Romero) and then flourished under the care of Glenda and her daughter Kendra. Kendra gave tirelessly to the vision of Essential Energies while she lived. We lost the light of her physical presence in 2014, though never the light of her spirit. Glenda continued the care of the center until Tom and Scott took over in 2016. Due to Scott's passing and Tom's health challenges, the time has come for the baton to pass once more. We are so pleased and excited to share with you that Glenda Prus and Marilyn Romero have assumed ownership of Essential Energies.

About Ian
Ian is a senior at Michigan Tech and the son of Kendra, and grandson of Glenda. He has been around Essential Energies since he was able to walk. Although his life has taken him away from the holistic practices, he is still very passionate about the success of Essential Energies and can often be found on late-night phone calls fixing the website or re-evaluating internet security.
