This is Personal.
WORTHY is a representation of my quest to be of service to my community, by creating a safe space for people from all walks of life to experience the healing that we are all worthy of.
Shortly after my mother passed away, and with the help of some incredible mentors, doctors and therapists, I had the healing realization that I had lived a lifetime in a state of sympathetic hyperarousal, or perpetual “fight or flight”. Unaddressed trauma had lead me down a cycle of unmanageable stress. My nervous system was in desperate need of regulation. I began to lean into the various modalities that I had already had in my tool kit as an athlete with greater frequency. Saunas, red light therapy, cold- plunging, breathwork, meditation, and lymphatic massage helped me heal my system so that I could put my best foot forward as a mother, sister, friend and entrepreneur, but most importantly for myself.
Thanks to these transformative practices, I am able to down regulate my nervous system, and build stress-resilience adaptations. In essence, I’ve been able to raise my baseline so that when I am faced with stress, I am able to respond with abundance and calm.
In recognizing my own struggles with stress and trauma, I began to cultivate compassion for myself (an ongoing journey), and in doing so, I was able to recognize the same challenges in others.
I began to question why it was so challenging for me and many in my community to gain access to these incredibly impactful modalities. Why are the impactful wellness services that changed my life so inaccessible?
Self-Care for ALL.
Our ethos is rooted in our collective humanity and the undeniable fact that every human on this earth is born WORTHY of good health, ease of being, love, joy and simply feeling good.
Our mission is to increase access to services like ours across the spectrum of our society. By doing so, I firmly believe that we can help uplift members of our community and society to a more just and equitable lived experience.
We offer a sliding scale program in addition to our 501c3 nonprofit, WORTHY Wellness Initiative. Through our initiative, we provide folks who meet the income requirements, a free membership to be able to experience our services. So often, wellness spaces like ours are inaccessible to members of our society who need them the most. This inequality disproportionately affects marginalized communities such as people of color, immigrants, people with physical differences, and members of the LGBTQIA community.
We are here to create a safe space and refuge for our guests through our shared and collective humanity.
It’s the honor of a lifetime to be of service in this way.
