MY NAME IS: Avital Scharf.
I'M HELPING TO LAUNCH:
Wellb—an online wellness marketplace that promotes healthy living by enabling access to a one-stop-shop of various one-on-one wellness services offered at different times, locations and prices within Manhattan.
YOU CAN FIND IT:
Online 24/7. The app is available on IOS, Android and on the web at wellb.me. Users can book individualized wellness sessions including yoga, personal training, meditation, Reiki, acupuncture, nutrition consultations and more.
WHAT MAKES IT SPECIAL IS:
The wellness industry was originally digitized using models for online purchases of products or taxi rides. However, seeking wellness services online is different than acquiring commodities; wellness is a personal service that requires trust. Clients want to personally know and trust who is treating them, be it a masseuse, yogi, chiropractor or personal trainer.
Therefore, our approach to wellness focuses on individuals and how their offline needs and lifestyles drive their online searches for our services. The wellb marketplace offers a convenient solution through a personalized “word-of-mouth” search that relies on the wellness community’s reviews and ratings.
We also understand the importance of being holistic. We know that life is varied; almost as varied as the many wellness doctrines available. We aim to serve the growing number of people who seek healthier lifestyles by incorporating different wellness services into their lives at different times.
This unique individualized approach also extends to wellness providers. We offer our experienced, certified practitioners (who are all thoroughly screened) a valuable opportunity to market their services in a way that makes sense for them.
ONE THING YOU CAN'T MISS:
An energy healing session with Julio Cortes, which sets your body and spirit in alignment. All stress melts away and a subtle ease comes over you; one that lasts for quite some time. I wish I could see him daily.
YOUR BODY WILL THANK YOU BECAUSE:
Wellness is not just about the end goal. It’s not just about losing weight or relieving pain. It’s about being in a state of mind, of well-being, that allows you to enjoy a balanced existence. Your body is your vehicle, and living well is about having the best vehicle with which to experience interesting opportunities, meet wonderful people and visit memorable places. By incorporating wellness into your daily life (and using wellb), you can tend to both your mind and body in a way that fits your individual lifestyle.
