We’re two sisters launching our first new business, sharing our passion offering holistic health services and nourishment to the Boroondara area.
Natalie (Co-Founder) has 7 years experience in the health industry, as a Sports Therapist, Myotherapist, and Clinical Pilates instructor specializing in acute and chronic pain associated with muscular dysfuctions; applying a holistic approach to achieve long-term results. Her passion for health began as her father was her inspiration; losing him when she was 13yrs old due to debilitating pain. To be able to improve a persons quality of life is most rewarding.
Elizabeth (Co-Founder) qualified chef, heads up Euphoria’s café bringing 8 years of Hospitality experience and sharing her love of food with everyone who visits. Her love for food began from a young age, watching her mother prepare traditional Russian foods from homegrown organic produce. Our family gatherings always involved a smorgasbord of traditional foods, spending days in the kitchen leading up to the gathering. She believes that enjoying a good meal with good company can solve many a problem and is one of life’s simple joys.
During our planning and renovation stages we ran into many challenges and were faced with situations we couldn’t forsee or plan for, it was only after signing the lease we were informed all of the motors for the split systems in the building had been stolen, the motor for the coolroom had been taken by the previous tenant and would have to be replaced. In addition, the ad for the building had listed an existing grease trap where none existed lead to additional thousands in renovations and leaving us in a very tight financial situation.
Being young, entrepreneurial females without much building experience we found ourselves being rtaken advantage of by tradesmen and having to pay multiple times to have tasks completed as work would be of very poor quality and needed to be re-done.
After months of hard work, sweat and many tears we finally managed to open Euphoria, our holistic health collective and we need your help to allow us to grow and continue to provide our vision of holistic healthcare to Boroondara!
Services available at Euphoria: Massage therapy, Myotherapy, Reformer and Clinical Pilates, Nutritionist, Steam Room, Meal Prep, custom cakes/catering and nourish cafe.
Funds raised from ReadyFundGo will go towards training and development of staff, getting new commercial kitchen equipment, renovating the cafe area and proven marketing strategies.
