Project Description

Pain! Our greatest enemy. Whether it’s physical, mental, or emotional. There are many who have a hard time thriving in life when they suffer from it.  Majority of the quick fix solutions, like opioids and most pain medications, are not always the best answer and can be harmful with various side effects and addictions.  My mission is to provide more effective solutions and to educate the general public about better options.

 

Intuitive Spirit Healing Arts offers in-person treatments, online resources, workshops and training of alternative therapies in massage, bodywork, energy work, and yoga. The goal is to improve the quality of life of all of our clients, students and followers; and to empower them with their own health.

The Issues "in the Tissues"

There is a growing epidemic of chronic pain, stress, anxiety and depression.  The impact of these undesirable experiences are spilling over into our relationships, social interaction and our level of overall well being. It becomes like a contagious dis-ease of these issues that get passed on. The need to feel better has become desperate.

 

Most doctors will provide quick-fix solutions that are great in the moment, but over time cause more challenges and concerns.  One of those “solutions” has become our country’s most significant epidemics that is the largest disruption to a productive way of life. There are better solutions than opioids. Ones that have no side effects and that are long-lasting.

 

Healing modalities like massage therapy, bodywork, yoga and energy work can improve our way of life; physically, mentally and socially. This is our foundation.  We resolve the issue of pain and negative dependency with these healing services and information.

What We Are All About

Intuitive Spirit Healing Arts is a health and healing provider that supports and shares significant resources about healing modalities that are beneficial for everyone.  

 

We are located in a city and in one of the leading vacation areas of the Northern East coast.  Because of this opportunity, we have access to a wide range of people, both locals and out of towners, who suffer from any one of the issues I mentioned. People come to us for answers that support pain-free and stress-free wellness.  As a result, we get a front row seat to what people are looking for during their healing journey.

 

Our market is diverse.  As a licensed Massage Therapist and certified Yoga Instructor, I see local clients (in a city of 42,591 and in a surrounding area of 126,313) and vacationers (an approx. population increase of 53.6%). The other category of my market is worldwide from internet users. These are people who are searching for answers to their health challenges. Using Google & YouTube increases my online audience. Being able to do smart marketing (through these and other platforms) can increase my blog subscribers, YouTube channel followers, online yoga students base and in-house clients.

 

The knowledge I gain through hands-on treatments is transferred and communicated through a blog I write. The blog is a great and easy way for people to search for specific questions around their health, and find out what treatments will be beneficial to them.  People have access to what they can do from the convenience of their own home on their own time, and feel empowered in their self-care. With the blog, they also have answers to questions about various modalities they may want to seek a therapist for.

 

An additional goal for this blog, we look forward to, is to build an extensive database of qualified therapist around the country that subscribers will be able to look up and book appointments within their area.

 

Funding is crucial for this feature because it will take 'manpower' to gather information from other therapist and will include paid advertisement.  Which means I will need to hire people. The more professional and quality the business is, the more we will gain the trust of therapist who will want to list through us. When professionalism and quality are at a high level, then everything else falls into place (this includes building clientele and the therapist directory).

 


 

For people who learn best visually, we have online tutorials on our YouTube channel that can be accessed at any time.  These are guides and information that people can do for common issues on their own for prevention and resolution.

 

To complement the massage and bodywork services and information I provide, I offer online yoga classes. I have classes for the general population, for parents with children in our ‘Yoga & Me’ class and for those who are interested in doing yoga as therapy. My goal with this is to build a dedicated student base and establish my own online platform to upload classes.  I want to be able to provide it from a membership page on the blog. In this way, everything is in one place.

Funding

I am seeking funding to grow my business and to have the capability to reach a wider audience through marketing and consistent content. I also need to be able to get the appropriate (and safe) equipment for in-person services, the equipment I need for quality and reliable videos & audio, software for creating, editing, to market my services and online offerings, to pay for rent until income picks up, and services I depend on for proper operation.  

 

These are some examples of the equipment I need for a successful business.

 

The help with funding is crucial for me at this time.  I experienced health issues that stopped me from being able to work for an extended period of time. Now that my health has improved I need help getting back on my feet so I can continue doing what I love, this time with my own business.

The Team

I am in the process of building an extensive team.  I will be adding contributors to the blog, a filmographer for the video classes & tutorials, IT geniuses and marketers. Currently, for my business I have set up and maintain two websites, do the videos and the editing, marketing, social media, creating visuals (like posters and online branding), and do the actual treatments.  I need help.

 

Right now, my current team is my family.  They help me with my content. Sometimes they are my models, my co-instructors and designers.  My husband’s business (Modig Internal Disciplines) partners with mine. I also help manage his business with web design and content, his YouTube channel, video editing, social media and marketing. He provides classes and services I do not, but that are complementary to my business and gives clients additional options.
