Has it been a smooth road?
There have been some learning curves for sure! We have had to learn who the best person is to contact to get our services in front of the right people and it is not always the HR Director.
Some companies have employees and Management who are very aware of the benefits of Wellness and have an open mind, and others are very close to the opportunities. So navigating these personalities and differences in understanding is always interesting.
We have also learned from participating at certain fairs and events that took a lot of our time and energy and sometimes did not deliver an adequate return on investment.
Thankfully though, we have expanded and grown based uniquely on word of mouth and recommendations, which is a testament to the fact we are doing it right!
So, as you know, we’re impressed with DeNatura® Wellness – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
Ohhhh please log onto the website. I think it describes what we do really well and visually too. https://www.denaturawellness.com/about/
What makes us different is that we offer a variety of on-site wellness services tailored to the needs and budget of the companies. Whether big or small. Massage Therapy, Acupuncture, Yoga, Mindfulness & Mental Health, fitness, and nutrition. We can provide excellent on-site service in these areas with Board-Licensed and or Certified professionals. Many of our staff are ex-corporate turned to wellness as a 2nd career and they “get” or understand what the demands are from corporate/office environments. We also offer workshops that allow employers to improve the teamwork, wellbeing, loyalty, and engagement of their staff-
We are affordable, personable and passionate about what we do. We work very closely with our clients to brainstorm the best initiative for their staff, and we offer different payment options, form using wellness dollars to providing the space for self-paid services in an office.
Another thing that makes us unique is that the founder, Teba Orueta, is not just a Board-licensed therapist herself but also teaches continuing education to healthcare providers. So the team who work with her are curated and hand-picked for their professionalism, integrity, technical skill, and personality. These are all very important factors.
Is there a quality or characteristic that has played an outsized role in your success?
Our flexibility and ability to tailor what we provide.
Also, the fact that our therapists graduated top of their class so their level of technical skill is quite advanced and this shines through in the services we provide.
