Meet Brave Wellness Studio

Today we’d like to introduce you to Brave Wellness Studio. Them and their team share their story with us below:

Our Founder, Denise Alba, created Brave Wellness Studio after seeing a missing component to mental health treatment. A therapist and living with anxiety herself, she wanted to create a space that provided more mental health treatment options than just your traditional talk therapy. She realized how listening to her body through yoga and breathwork lowered her own symptoms of anxiety and how taking these into her own therapy sessions made it all align and click. She wanted to share this gift with others and dreamed of a wellness “one stop shop” for mental and physical health that incorporated this holistic approach to healing. Brave Wellness Studio was born out of this dream in 2018 and opened its doors in 2019, offering a safe space to work through mental, physical, and emotional needs all while in a supportive community.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
At the beginning, the struggle was just walking alongside that fear of opening a business facing the unknown. You want to help so many people but with that comes so many more components and challenges. You have to just start trusting that you were given this gift for a reason and that as long as doors are being opened in your favor, you are doing what you were meant to do. For our founder, that was helping others.

Then we cue in COVID. We were less than a year old when COVID hit. That has been the biggest challenge thus far and having to find ways to pivot the young business into the unknown. There were many moments of uncertainty that still at times linger due to the recovery process. We managed to survive and through that, it brought us a new sense of passion to further support those in need in our community.

Appreciate you sharing that. What should we know about Brave Wellness Studio?
