Welcome to our first Mom Around Town Feature! We have an interview with Samana Jasper of Kidz N Moms! Kidz N Moms provides natural health care for families including energy work, yoga therapy, and education. It was established in 2012 and is in Northfield, IL. Since many of the business owners I will be interviewing work directly with children, I think it is important to get to know them well. Our Mom Around Town feature will help you do that!
Erika: How does your business benefit the families in the Chicago area?
Samana: It empowers families to get healthy naturally.
Erika: How did you get the idea to start your business?
Samana: I have been in health care for 25 years starting as a physical therapist and then becoming certified in yoga instruction and energy work. I have always valued health and awareness and enjoy sharing these things with all who would like to receive more knowledge and care.
Erika: What did you do before you started your business?
Samana: Physical therapy in outpatient settings, taught yoga privately
Erika: Can you share one memorable story from an experience you had related to your business?
Samana: I had a woman come to me with severe burns on her hands. We did the energy work to shift her body to its best healing potential. Her pain reduced significantly and by afternoon she was able to see her massage clients and fully use her hands.
Erika: Do you have children yourself?
Samana: I have two amazing stepkids, Isabelle who is 13 and Ian who is 11 years old.
Erika: Feel free to tell us about them.
Samana: Isabelle is smart, funny and highly creative. She enjoys scholastic bowl, band and cross country running. Ian is a whiz on the computer, caring and kind. He is in band as well.
Erika: What do you think makes a quality service or product?
Samana: Expertise and compassion are key in health care.
Erika: How do you think you provide a quality service or product?
Samana: I have a large amount of experience. I do the work on myself and my family regularly so I know its benefits. I practice what I preach.
Erika: Do you have anything you would like to tell us that is new for your business in 2013?
Samana: I am getting out in the public to do more family education. My latest workshop helps families better get along and create more harmony in the home. It is called Family Energy Dynamics.
Erika: Is there anything else you want to tell us about your business or yourself?
Samana: Kidz N Moms mission is to empower healthy families. I am passionate about this and plan to become a well-known expert on the North Shore for natural family health.
And a couple fun ones!
What is one thing on your “bucket” list?
Samana: Travel to Australia to play and explore with friends.
Erika: Any fun, unusual talents you have or what is a fun fact about yourself?
