Farewell from Well Within
Hello Well Within clients,
It is with great sadness that we announce that Well Within is closing its doors permanently. Those are words we never thought we would say anytime soon.
The COVID-19 pandemic brings many unanswered questions for us as integrated health care providers. Because we care so deeply for our staff and clients, we are extremely concerned that we don’t feel confident that we can deliver our services SAFELY anytime soon. We do not believe it would be ethical to attempt to protect our staff or clients from this virus when there are still so many unanswered questions about how long the virus will be spreading, when a vaccine will be available, how immunity to the virus will be determined and so on.
This shutdown has had a drastic impact on Well Within’s financial health as we reinvested our savings into keeping the office running these past couple months with no revenue coming in and our resources are nearly depleted. To continue to fund Well Within at a time when we are not generating revenue would mean going deeply into debt and this feels very risky at a time when the future of our industry is so unknown This reality has left us with very few options and the decision to close has risen to the top.
On a crisp autumn day in 2010, almost exactly 10 years ago, we (Celeste and Laura) stood in the parking lot of 697 Washington Street and considered the idea of bringing to life our shared dream of creating a wellness center. On October 1st, 2010 we hung our sign and were open for business. It was terrifying and exhilarating. Our dream was to have a place where people can come to get relief – from pain, from stress and for a brief reprieve from the dizzying pace of life. For the last decade, we poured our hearts into Well Within. We love what we created.
Over these last 10 years we have had the distinct pleasure to collaborate with many incredible, outstanding, talented and kind staff. All the unique gifts each of these wonderful people brought to their work shaped what Well Within has become over time and we are so damn proud of what that is. Some of our staff have even been with us for most of our time in business. That level of commitment and loyalty to our vision, not to mention the love we feel for each of them, brings us to our knees at a time like this.
Over these last 10 years we have had the distinct pleasure to work with thousands of amazing clients, many of whom have become loyal regulars, who have come and come and come to support their minds and bodies and to support us and Well Within. Thank you for trusting us with your bodies. We sincerely hope we always over-delivered on our promises to help you towards your greatest health. Many of you have become like family to us (you know who you are) and have let us into your hearts. You will forever live in ours too. There are simply not words to describe what an honor it has been to be a part of your individual journeys.
Reflecting on the tremendous amount of work that has taken place in our little office and the bonds that formed through that process is gratifying, humbling and heartbreaking.
If you are receiving this email, you were a part of Well Within in some way and for that we are eternally grateful. We wish you optimal health, peaceful moments and abundant joy.
Celeste & Laura
