We got in touch with Erin to learn more about her business!
Tell us about your business and why you decided to open.
My business is a small office that centres around the client. I offer Registered Massage Therapy and Birth Doula Services. I strive to work with my clients and educate them about how their bodies are designed and how they move. How injuries occur and symptoms can be in one area of the body but can be originating from a completely different source. With my Birth Doula Clients I want to empower them with the knowledge of their rights in Birth. How their bodies are strong and capable to move through this process and onto the other side. I teach mom’s and their partners ways to cope with breathing, pain and stress to support what their needs are in each individualized birthing situation that may arrise. I wanted to open my business to educate and empower my clients.
What business was like before COVID-19?
Business before COVID-19 was extremely busy, I had a very full schedule and am currently looking to expand. I am looking to bring on another RMT into the business to work with clients. I’m hoping to find someone who I can mentor and work with to grow them with my business.
What has business been like since the outbreak of COVID-19?
Unfortunately since COVID-19, I’ve had to temporarily close my business. I am looking forward to the day when I can reopen my doors and get back to working one on one with my clients again.
How will this impact your business long term?
I think this is just a minor set back. I have been in business for a long time and I do have long standing loyal clients that I have been working with for years who I believe are waiting for my office to reopen. So in the short term this is a hit, but long term this will all work itself out and we will all get through this together. This social distancing is the safest thing for everyone right now so we need to do what is the best and safest thing. We need to keep everyone safe and we will see everyone soon.
How can people help? I think people can help by continuing to support small local businesses. When this is over, pop into local shops, pick up gift cards, buy a lunch or dinner, coffee, snack, gift at a shop instead of a big store. Come into a clinic or office, make an appt at a small office like mine or at a Chiropractor or Naturopaths office. Share information about local businesses online. I think sometimes people think if I support someone else it takes away from my business but I think the opposite, If we hold up people around us it lifts us ALL!
