Through a shared mission to change the way women access healthcare in Cincinnati, two women-owned businesses – Anchor Wellness Center and WISe Wellness Guild – have aligned. Both businesses serve as educational platforms and provide services that empower women to take health and wellness into their own hands.
Anchor Wellness Center, a Kenwood-based center offering physical therapy, clinical Pilates, lifestyle coaching, nutritional therapy and yoga therapy, was founded by Dr. Sarah Crawford, a licensed physical therapist in 2019. WISe Wellness Guild, founded by Stevi Carr in 2019, leverages expertise in behavioral sciences, healthcare, wellcare and women’s empowerment to provide a platform that shifts the way women work and live.
“We formed this partnership to help women challenge the norms set for them,” says Dr. Crawford. “We are pushing for women to prioritize themselves, think bigger and demand a seat at the table. To do that, women need to be the best versions of themselves which means prioritizing their mental and physical wellness and having a supportive network to help them function optimally and achieve exactly what they want. We’re providing the tools to do just that.”
“Wellness is a spectrum, and it is important that we acknowledge that each woman’s journey is individual and personal” says Stevi Carr, Founder of WISe. “With that being said, one of the biggest contributors to healthy habit formation is the power of a like-minded community. WISe aims to create an ecosystem of empowerment and accountability to offer a culture of wellness.”
WISe Wellness Guild Members get access to special events and promotions within Anchor Wellness Center. Other benefits include the opportunity to connect guild members and corporate partners with providers inside Anchor Wellness Center.
