A LOVE STORY:

Like all good stories, ours starts with a love story...

Dena and AJ  were healthcare professionals living in two different cities until Dena almost died of a brain aneurysm and credits AJ for saving her life.

When Dena got sick, AJ, who was working  twelve-hour hospital shifts in the Emergency Room each day, left work and drove two hours each way in a rare Oklahoma ice storm to sit by Dena’s bedside in the hospital.This commitment resulted in the realization that they were meant to be together.

Slowly Dena recovered. Convinced stress played a part in her illness; she set out on a long journey to learn ways to manage stress and balance her demanding career,  health, and sanity (something we can all relate to today!). At a loss with traditional methods, she turned to the folk healing arts and energy work that she’d dabbled in during the 20 years before her health scare --this time with a renewed sense of focus and passion.

Using holistic modalities Dena experienced a quick and profound shift; she felt more at ease and peaceful in her day to day life. Events that would’ve triggered her stress previously no longer created roadblocks, she was able to let them float away. She also began to enjoy the mundane parts of life and found excitement in small moments that would’ve made her bored in her past life of go, go, go.

As a result, a new appreciation for holistic healing arts, and a desire to learn more emerged in Dena. She became a sponge soaking up knowledge and information, immersing herself in every opportunity, near and far, studying under remarkable healers around the globe, even dragging her family deep in to the jungles of Guatemala for a rare experience.  During this journey, Dena learned a lot about herself and a truly valuable lesson, that all healing has a common thread composed of equal parts love, luck, science and the magic of faith. Hence, out of this simple love story, and a commitment to healing holistically Angels & Sages was born and is committed to bringing health and balance to everyone through hand-crafted products that contain the highest quality ingredients and heal mind, body and spirit.  

ABOUT OUR FOUNDER & CEO:

Dena Bradford worked for many years as a healthcare and medical spa industry executive before surviving a ruptured brain aneurysm and, as a result, became inspired to find healing and balance in her life and to help others do the same.

Stress is a chronic problem in our society and through holistic healing arts, Dena quickly found a new normal and a more balanced approach to life, which has created the foundation for Angels & Sages products and services

When she’s not crafting perfume oils, body care products, herbal teas and intention candles, you’ll find Dena running high profile medical spas, and clinics; chasing her  children and racing toward her passions...while being present and maintaining some balance, of course!
