Shine the Light Healing & Wellness is a holistic treatment and healing center located in the heart of Main Street in East Greenwich, Rhode Island. Shine the Light is co-owned by Alycia Bedrosian Hatch & Jessica Reis-Driscoll. The name of our business was inspired by a song called "Shine the Light", written and performed by the band, Sugarland. This remarkable song shines a light on mental health and those who are struggling with their emotional and physical wellbeing.

Our business was built in memory of Alycia's friend, Jenna Deveines, who not only loved "Shine the Light", but who would have loved the idea of a welcoming, safe, and supportive environment for anyone who may be struggling, who may be seeking guidance, or who may be beginning or fulfilling their journey to healing. Through EMDR, counseling, mindset coaching, Reiki healing, auricular acudetox, massage therapy, yoga, and various other resources, groups, and workshops, we provide an array of services to empower our clients to embark on their health and wellness journey, while encouraging and supporting them to make positive, transformative choices. We also offer animal assisted therapy with our resident therapy dog, Cyrus Bean. We also partner with Faith Hill Care Farm in East Greenwich, RI for equine assisted therapy.

We offer groups, workshops, book club, and other wellness events and programs. Please visit our website for updates and additional details. All of our therapists' bios can be found on our website.
