From Our Editors
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I am an RN dedicated to decreasing a patient's pre-surgical anxiety weeks or even days before their procedure. I know what doctors and nurses can do to help alleviate anxiety, but my process is on guiding patients to manage their fear and anxiety from the inside out, before they enter the OR.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I used mind-body techniques designed for birthing without medications and was amazed at how easily I could get myself relaxed and manage labor pain. When I discovered a similar program for my surgical patients, I got trained right away and have been decreasing pain and anxiety since.
What do you love most about your job?
I love when patients have pain or anxiety at the beginning of our session, and by the end, they give me a much lower number on the pain scale just by getting them to a totally relaxed place. They then also have these tools to take with them to manage their post-op pain.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
One client called me almost two years after he had used my services. He wanted to know where he could get another copy of the relaxation cd that came with the class as he was still using the techniques I taught him before his surgery along with the cd to have an impact on his business life.
