Interview with Elke Hausler

Salus Wellness well into its second year in business decided to interview some of the practitioners who joined during the startup period and are now celebrating a year of activity with the health centre.

Elke, what is your specialisation and how long have you been practicing?

I believe in empowering my clients to help themselves as much as they can. That’s what I do. Since 2007, I have mainly helped people stepping out of pain, emotional or physical pain. I love my work. It is so rewarding!

I started out as a complementary health practitioner in 2004, doing Swedish Massage, Reiki and Indian Head Massage. The more people I saw, the more I realised how stressed many of them were and that they often were in emotional and/or physical pain. I went on to deepen my knowledge and get more qualifications (Thought Field Therapy, Dorn Method, Sports Massage and Rossiter System Workouts).

When did you start working at Salus Wellness and what influenced your decision to work here?

About 15 months ago, I met Luca and Massimo who run Salus Wellness clinics at a business networking event. When I mentioned I was intending to spread out my work to Cambridge in the near future, they invited me to have a look at the premises and we arranged a meeting. I loved the atmosphere straight away, the location, the rooms and easy parking seemed ideal and my gut feeling told me to go for it. I’m glad I did.

How many clients do you see in an average week?

I currently only work two half days a week in Cambridge – every Monday plus every other Wednesday and alternate Saturday. I have been able to fill most slots easily and am looking to increase my hours at Salus Wellness in the future. The rest of the week I am busy working at my clinic in Newmarket.

What is your general view of the facilities offered by Salus Wellness?

They offer a variety of rooms with different equipment, so a wide range of treatments can be offered. I like the idea of having it all under one roof.

How did the help received from Salus Wellness in terms of running your business, sales, and marketing helped to develop your business?

I was pretty impressed with the workshops they put on – free of charge or next to nothing -, Profit Dojo, a networking meeting every second Friday of the month including a free workshop afterwards, tips and tricks they give away all year long, the help with and design of my promotional material including my website etc. All of it, I am sure, has helped me build my practice in Cambridge fairly quickly.

What are your future plans at the clinic?

I am planning to be part of it for a long time. I would love to meet more colleagues with the possibility to cross-refer clients if I feel they benefit from their treatments.

Would you recommend Salus Wellness to other practitioners?

Yes, I certainly would.

What advice would you give to new practitioners?

What are you waiting for? Jump at the occasion!

 

 

Interview with Joseph Robinson

Having just celebrated a year of activity we decided to start a series of interviews to publicly ask to our practitioners what they think about working at Salus Wellness.

Joseph, what is your specialisation and how long have you been practicing?

I am an Osteopath specialising in treatment and management of chronic pain. As a keen sportsman I also hold a special interest in treatment and rehabilitation of sports injuries and athletic development. I have been practicing now for 1 year.


When did you start working at Salus Wellness and what influenced your decision to work here?

I started practicing at Salus Wellness Clinics as my second practice in October 2010. At the time I had been looking to set up a second practice for a couple of weeks and had several potential sites. I chose to move forward with Salus Wellness as it offered all I wanted in terms of city centre location with good footfall and still plenty of close by parking available throughout the day, great facilities and the right professional and welcoming working atmosphere that is so important in my profession and to the Cambridge ProCare brand.

How many clients do you see in an average week?

I practice at Salus Wellness 3 days a week seeing on average 10 patients a day with peak numbers of up to 18 patients in a day.

What is your general view of the facilities offered by Salus Wellness?

Salus Wellness has achieved a high standard of facilities throughout, creating a naturally welcoming atmosphere without losing any sense of professionalism and clinical cleanliness.

How did the help received from Salus Wellness in terms of running your business, sales, and marketing helped to develop your business?

It is impossible to be a master of all things, having the business expertise and hands on assistance of the Salus Wellness management team has been vital in the success I have enjoyed in my first year at Salus Wellness and further more into the success of Cambridge ProCare Osteopathy’s development as a brand across both its clinics. The support of having the Salus Wellness team behind me has meant I have been able to focus more attention onto developing myself as a skilled and professional practitioner whilst still learning a tremendous amount of applied business skills from the highly experienced individuals that make up the Salus Wellness management team.

What are your future plans at the clinic?

As Cambridge ProCare Osteopathy’s central Cambridge clinic Salus Wellness is going to a focal point of growth for the company over the coming years, I hope to regularly increase practitioner hours at Salus Wellness as our client base demand grows.

Would you recommend Salus Wellness to other practitioners?

Yes.

What advice would you give to new practitioners?

Salus Wellness can provide the perfect setting and all the tools a practitioner needs to grow their business but it is, ultimately, up to the individual to use those tools to manufacture their own success in business.

For private healthcare businesses in today’s economic climate success and growth are there for those who actively strive for it, there is no such this as standing still, biding time. If you are not moving forward you are moving backwards.
