About us

Let me introduce myself!

I’m Julie Mikos-Houlihan and am currently a self-employed wedding photographer. About five years ago I not only decided I had had enough with all of my chronic pain and constantly fluctuating weight, but also that I needed a career change. I worked with an ancestral functional medicine practitioner to heal my body and my mind naturally and started dreaming of a place I could go for a week, two weeks, a month where I could immerse myself in learning a healthy and simple eating plan that works for me and a realistic exercise plan which I could build into my everyday life and get rid of my chronic conditions once and for all! Not only did I embark on investigating how I could change my career, but I also started searching for this place of health and wellness. Guess what? I discovered that these healthy places already exist, but either they are unaffordable to most people or the affordable options were either a little run down, hippie dippy or a bit too new age for myself and your average american. This is when I started dreaming of The Healing Farm. This is when I started working toward my own plan to introduce a retreat series or physical place at which I could introduce a spa-like experience at an affordable price working with a team of educators and practitioners who are dedicated to teaching realistic health solutions for our participants. Eureka! A new career!

Hence the birth of my ultimate dream of The Healing Farm concept and introduction of The Healing Farm | Retreat Series.
