BELMAR, NJ — Serenity by the Sea Too will debuts its first Bel-Market of the summer today, June 25 with offerings to help everyone ease into the new week.

Carly Surmonte of Car Chet Healing is a reiki master who will feature a day of self-care. With a focus on energy medicine as a form of integrative wellness, she promotes the use of crystals as transportable vibrational energy to help with the self-care process.

“Crystals have their own vibrational frequencies that help to benefit the mind, body, and spirit way after reiki and chakra balancing is complete,” says Surmonte, who holds a master’s in holistic health studies.
