The Wellness Collective

When Danielle Massi, a holistic psychotherapist, started the Wellness Collective in 2019, she had plans for Philly’s first-ever wellness center that focused on holistic healing for both physical and mental maladies caused by stress. Opening up the center was personal project — a catalyst of what Massi learned after being diagnosed with cervical cancer the week of her 29th birthday. The Wellness Collective offers Philadelphians an array of healthy options — think of it as a menu of options to feed whatever it is that their body and mind needs. In a world where Massi says the message is to “work hard until you burn out,” the cancer survivor wants to combat that notion with one that puts the emphasis on nourishing your emotional, physical and mental well-being at all costs. This weekend, those who buy the gift of wellness from the Wellness Collective will get 50% off of the Find Your Light Program. As the website states, the Find Your Light Program is a transformational self-study program created by Massi. During her decade of working as a therapist, Massi realized that change is something most people want but few people achieve, and she created a program that combines neuroscience, biology and spirituality, to make changing effortless.
