Small Business Feature: Loving Heart Holistic Wellness
Founded originally in Bedford, IN, in 2016, then relocated in 2020 to Arlington by Kara Simon. Loving Heart Holistic Wellness provides compassionate, holistic wellness for individuals seeking wellbeing and empowerment for mind, body and spirit. Simon works individually with clients using a personalized approach using modalities of Yoga, Reiki, Mindfulness, Meditation, EFT Tapping, Sound Healing and Aromatherapy.
What makes Loving Heart Holistic Wellness unique are the compassionate services it provides. “I provide a wide array of holistic wellness services in an all-inclusive way through programs, and that’s pretty rare to find,” says Simon. All the services that Loving Heart Holistic Wellness offers are sustainable, trauma-informed and provided with nonjudgement and compassion. “As part of my rebrand in May, I wanted to keep my focus on client care. I created inclusive programs that utilize all the modalities I offer curated to my client’s specific needs.”
For a small business like Loving Heart Holistic Wellness, the decision to relocate often has to do with the personal choices of the founder. “My husband received a job offer in the DMV, so we ultimately decided to move here together,” she said. “I had two choices, either close my business or relocate it. The focus, appreciation and support Arlington provides small businesses helped me make the decision,” says Simon.
Immediately upon relocating to Arlington, Simon got connected with BizLaunch. “BizLaunch helped me navigate the legal process of relocating my business and provided free business consulting and strategic planning through the ReLaunch program. They also helped me with marketing and market research. I love the BizLaunch team,” she says.
Additionally, Simon has gotten quite active in the Arlington and Rosslyn business community and has taken advantage of resources from the Arlington Chamber of Commerce and the Rosslyn BID. She says she feels as though the community uplifts and values small businesses, a quality she says is extremely important.
Like many solopreneurs offering personalized services, Simon spends a great deal of time working with clients one-on-one, explaining that her favorite clients show up with an open mind, ready to be dedicated to their wellness, personal development and growth. “It’s that “ah-ha” moment a client has during or after sessions that continue to fuel my passion for providing holistic wellness services,” says Simon.
