Community Highlights: Meet Anna of Therapeutic Awakening

Today we’d like to introduce you to Anna .

Hi Anna, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
Therapeutic Awakening is a luxury body care brand. I created Therapeutic Awakening with the intent to provide more accessible ways to destress. Before I detail that, I want to highlight the importance of self-care management and how it completely changed my life. I received my Massage Therapy diploma five years ago, and that’s when I fell in love with self-care

In 2019, my mom was diagnosed with stage four Colon Cancer, and I was devastated! My mom was the epitome of a strong black queen, but she was overworked, stressed, and tried to balance her personal life, work-life, parenting, and more. Through it all, she rarely complained, but I saw her suffering inside. Things began to take an emotional and physical toll on her body.

Her chemotherapy treatments resulted in her pain. During those moments, I would give her soothing massages and other self-care services. I was so happy to release that tension and see her smile again. My mom lost her battle with cancer, and Covid-19 quickly came after that. Because of Covid, I decided to encapsulate that therapeutic experience in a bottle, and Therapeutic Awakening was born.

Self-care is healthcare, and I believe more black and brown women should prioritize that. Too many times, I have watched those women stress themselves out due to their demanding lifestyles. Stress is a silent killer, and women must take it more seriously. Our bodies and minds are interrelated, and our emotions are anchored in our bodies. Our bodies will tell us that we’re stressed before we realize it.

I’m here by pure dedication and resilience. So many times, I’ve been emotionally knocked down and rejected, but now my life has a whole new meaning. Therapeutic Awakening is dedicated to my mom, and I know her legacy will live on.

We all face challenges, but looking back, would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
There’s a saying, “Anything worth having is worth working for.” My mother’s death is a struggle within itself; knowing that she’s no longer here physically, I know that my mom is with me in spirit. Now, I find myself trying to figure things out independently, but being an entrepreneur isn’t easy, but it’s rewarding. I am a first-generation entrepreneur, so it’s not easy not to have someone to relate to professionally, but I trust my intuition. I’m grateful to have professional peers around me that’ll give me sound advice when it’s needed. I decided to be more hands-on with Therapeutic Awakening, so that means I constantly have to make hard decisions for the sake of my business.

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know?
We value our customers ,here at Therapeutic Awakening, so each ingredient is carefully handpicked for their benefit. We aim to offer easy solutions to combat their stressful, demanding lifestyle. Our soothing bath salts are loaded with essential oils that’ll melt your stress away. Therapeutic Awakening also provides nourishing body oils that effectively apply the medicinal properties of infused and natural oils into the skin. Our organic botanical flowers are infused over 8+ hours and cured over months just so our customers can experience the full benefits of our body oils. We want our customers to feel confident knowing that we can deliver excellence.

Outside of being the founder of Therapeutic Awakening, I am a social media influencer and self-care advocate. I have experience in massage therapy, so I am familiar with how the body responds to stress. As far as being an influencer, it has opened the doors for me to showcase my other talent, such as acting.

I am known for my warm and inviting personality, in addition to my vast social media presence. What sets me apart from others are my resilience and my ability to transform into greatness. I can be the energy that I want to attract and to create excellence, starting with my mind. The mind is very powerful, and you can manifest anything you want as long as you do the work. So many times, I’ve been told “NO,” and many doors have closed on me until I decided to create my own.

I am most proud of Therapeutic Awakening’s growth. So many things have transpired, and we haven’t launched. We’re currently participating in vendor events to offer an exclusive shopping experience with us. In addition to that, I am very proud of my personal growth that has allowed Therapeutic Awakening to grow.

I want the readers to know that we’re proud to serve our customers and want them to understand the importance of self-care. Often times, black and brown women are overworked, underpaid, unappreciated, and stressed. Many of them have faced and currently are facing hardships and are seeking more accessible ways to destress, and Therapeutic Awakening has the solution.

As mentioned before, we are offering soothing bath salts and nourishing body oils, but we intend to expand to a complete luxury line dedicated to self-care. We will be launching just in time for Black Friday. Join us on our journey and follow us on Instagram, Facebook, Tiktok, and Pinterest (@TherapeuticAwakening ).

What’s next?
We strongly believe in speaking great things into existence; therefore, We plan to reach a larger demographic. We are getting excited just thinking about it! We also want to expand to a complete luxury brand that caters to men as well. Many womens’ self-care begins in the bathroom, hence our bath salts, but it doesn’t have to end there.
