Meet The Mystic Flow Wellness Center Staff
Founder and Owner
Hello! I'm Adriana Benoit, founder of Mystic Flow Wellness Center in Gainesville, VA. I'm a native of Costa Rica but have lived in Virginia for a long time now. I didn't always want to own a wellness center, it became a desire of mine after having two children and running my other business, a preschool called Daytime Playtime, for the last twelve years.
I'm dedicated to helping kids have a great experience learning, growing, and exploring as childhood events greatly influence how they'll view life as an adult. So four years ago, I became a therapist learning integrative practices to use in my preschool in order to provide an even more joyful atmosphere focusing on holistic (mind-body-spirit) wellbeing for the kids.
I soon realized that to be able to bring that level of wellbeing to the children it first had be to made accessible to the parents. That's where the idea originated for creating Mystic Flow Wellness Center. I imagined a welcoming center that provided services to parents to help them align their lives with the harmony, balance, and clarity so they could be the best parents possible to their kids. I wanted to teach them how changing their perspective on life could change the overall quality of life by allowing for more joy and peace.
Mystic Flow isn't just for my preschooler parents, it's for everyone wanting to regain the balance in their life and enhance their self-care practice in a wonderful state-of-the art wellness center. I've taken great care in acquiring the very best holistic practitioners in their field. They're ready to provide their wisdom and expertise to help you bring balance in areas of your lives requiring attention and love.

She loves people, especially children and her greatest passion is helping others.

Gracie M. (Akashic Records Consultant)
Gracie specializes in helping clients get unstuck, claim their gifts, heal, and grow. She uses the Records both as a tool for healing and for answers to questions you may have in all areas of life, including health, career, relationships, pets, life purpose, past lives, fears, and abundance.
By connecting with your Record Keepers (kind of like your own soul’s librarians), she is able to receive answers to questions ranging from “Should I stay with my partner?” to “Will I be happier as a carpenter or as a veterinarian?” If you are experiencing repetitive patterns in your life, beliefs that aren’t serving you, or challenging dynamics with certain people, the Record Keepers are often able to provide insight while healing old wounds, removing contracts that no longer serve you, or helping you disconnect from old patterns. Her passion and purpose is to help you get clarity and finally live the life you were born to live.

Jo was born in Ecuador and moved to the Washington, DC area in her early twenties. In 2006 she had the opportunity to live in amazing Australia, on and off, for 9 years, where she became acquainted with nature's energy and all its gifts and benefits.
Jo has a major in Linguistics and has traveled abroad vastly, which has given her a greater perspective and understanding of the connection between culture and spiritual believes, and how important is to be aware of both when meeting a client for the first time.
An NDE experience in 1993 and a lifetime of intuitive synchronicities led her to seek certifications with Access Consciousness and Quantum-Touch becoming a practitioner and facilitator, and in April 2018 she became the first worldwide facilitator for Quatum-Allergy™. Jo is also a reverend under the order of Melchizedek.
Jo’s passion for empowering people by sharing her close acquaintance and love for energy healing is a life goal for her.
