Self-care is about priorities, boundaries, and finding purpose so you can live life to the fullest. As a Therapist, Kitty Shum’s dedication to this cause propelled her to launch Loti Wellness as a symbolic and practical reminder that self-care is more than grooming products and a trending topic. Genuine self-care is about feeling good from the inside out & self discovery.
On this week’s Startup Women Podcast, Kitty discusses how the wellness industry has evolved, practical insights to support your own mental health, and how leveraging trusted partners like PayPal has given her business the trust and credibility it’s needed to scale.
Kitty Shum is an Occupational Therapist who has been practicing psychotherapy for over 10 years. A primary focus of Occupational Therapy is to help people achieve balance and independence in daily life activities, and to enable them to do the things they want and need to do. Kitty has always been an advocate of genuine self-care – body, mind and soul. Through the use of strategies based in positive psychology and cognitive behavioural therapy, individuals can learn ways to cope with the mental, emotional and psychosocial challenges that are a part of everyday life.
Kitty is the founder and CEO of Loti Wellness, a curated monthly subscription box packed with wellness products aimed at nurturing positivity and joy through research-inspired therapeutic activities to enhance mental and emotional health while providing wellness products to encourage more time for self-care.
“Self-care is not just a luxury or a trend, but really a necessary component of your mind, body, and soul.”
