Today we’d like to introduce you to Megan Sanders.
Hi Megan, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
We were the first business in Missouri to provide whole body cryotherapy (WBC). As a physical therapist, I was growing fatigued with only seeing patients after injury or surgery instead of preventing it. I saw the benefits of WBC and the role it played in controlling systemic inflammation and coupling it with stretch-based massage allowed many of my clients to regain control of the pain, their bodies and their lives. We are not a “Cure all” studio, we are a wellness-based studio. We focus on offering education on the role that pain and inflammation play in the body, we address many needs through soft tissue release, stretching and couple that with now over five modalities (infrared sauna, compression therapy, red light therapy, whole body cryo, whole body vibration) to relieve pain. But overall, we offer HOPE. That is my business. To give the public access to understanding how and why their pain begins and then beat it to the punch before it manifests into an issue that requires a medical intervention.
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Absolutely not! Dreamers (like myself) rarely see the full picture. As I stated earlier. I am a PT, not a marketer, not an accountant, not a salesperson. And my passion for your transformation is easy to address in person, but it does not translate well via print. Our biggest struggle was getting clients in the door. We are in the “show me state”. We are in the Mid-West where we are 3-5 years (at least) behind LA and NYC. We aren’t on trend. But I wanted to win the race to wellness. We deserve a. healthy life too! We brought a wellness tool that asks you to stand in the buff in _225 degree temps. Why pay for that when you can stand outside for FREE in the winter? <<< I was not prepared for so much skepticism and cynics. Dreamers are not truly prepared for the reality of business…but we rarely QUIT.
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
I am a licensed Physical Therapist who attended Saint Louis University and stayed in the City she loves to help its people. I am dually licensed Massage Therapist who taught The Muscle Release Technique Education Workshops from 2007-2019 nationwide to other therapists, trainers, chiropractors and physicians.
I specialize in releasing soft tissues, restoring range of motion and communication regarding the client maintaining the changes themselves.
I walk the delicate balance between holistic wellness and healthcare. Each has their place. Both are inside my business.
I am never more proud than when I am able to affect change in someone’s life. My staff teases me because I often say “Today is a great day to change lives”!
Can you share something surprising about yourself?
I never wanted to own my own business. I didn’t want to be in charge, I don’t want to be the face of anything, But I do want to be the reason why. The reason why someone smiles, the reason they can walk again, the reason they can crawl on the floor with grandkids, the reason they PR at their next track meet. I am a difference maker. So I put that on my business card. (You know most people don’t read those!!!)
