Tell us about yourself

I have always had a wish to be a health professional like a doctor or join the defense for commanding troupe since my childhood. But my dream didn’t come true very easily. Short history, I moved to Canada to study for a Bachelor of Computer Science. Finished my degree and started my career as an IT consultant. I was never happy with my IT field, and it didn't last long in my career. I have decided to go back to school, which I like, and practice anywhere in the world. Helping people with their health, traveling around the world, and being rewarded simultaneously.

I started my journey with HolisticHealing4Life in 2017 based on my experience as a Doctor of Osteopathy, R.M.T, CHP, and working in the healthcare industry. But one thing I have learned, there are so many alternate ways to help a client’s health recover, improve and maintain. Therefore I became the Founder of HolisticHealing4Life with a holistic approach. I want to change the world with different experiences with alternate options. I have seen that simple and alternative measures can help a person’s health journey ease throughout their all aging life.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Listening to the client's needs and educating client's about their health. Knowing what causes them and how to prevent them is the biggest achievement in solving so many health issues.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

Employees or therapists that we hire that think of the client as a number, like a big franchise industry. They want to mix Spa and Massage therapy in the same umbrellas. Technically both have different goals and achievements. We like to keep our quality of services, technique and high reputation at the same time. The employees who don't like to learn many different methods or use are unwilling to offer or introduce other options. Basically, they want to stick with regular rubbing skin, like those from a big company.

Honesty, quality, and maintain good standards at all times as per your capability.
