A new health and wellness store, ReVive – Your Mind Body Spirit Store, is now open inside the Westfield Sarasota Square Mall.
The store specializes in high quality products for the mind, body and spirit.
Owner Julie Clarke’s motive for opening ReVive is simple: “I want to help the local community feel better.”
To intrigue the mind, Clarke offers products like puzzles, books and games. To nourish the body: organic teas, lotions and massage equipment. To revive the spirit: inspirational artwork, books and jewelry. Essential oils, soy and shea butter candles, gourmet foods and fudge and a Dr. Fugi Electric Cyber Slimmer Machine are other customer favorites.
Behind Clarke’s motive to help others feel better is her own story of healing.
“In 2004, I lost my mother to dementia and stroke.” As a close witness to her mother’s mental decline, Clarke is passionate about offering products to stimulate brain activity, exercise the memory and build up hand-eye coordination.
Her emphasis on feel-good products for the body comes from an accident in which her motorcycle ended up on top of her. “I was in a critical motorcycle accident while in law school, breaking my back in multiple places, and suffered from concussion, depression, tinnitus, fibromyalgia, and chronic pain.”
Through years of testing out all types of at-home massage equipment and pain relief products, she now believes she can choose the best ones to recommend and sell to her customers.
And finally, it is by the grace of God, according to Clarke, that she survived the accident. She considers herself a personal witness to God’s healing power physically and spiritually. The inspirational products in the store are meant to remind, renew or revive her customers’ personal walk with Jesus Christ.
After just a couple of months of the small business’ soft opening, customers have expressed their enthusiasm not just for the store and its products, but also for its owner. “This store is great and Julie Clark is a great person. Best of luck in 2013” wrote customer Kathy Williams on ReVive’s Facebook page.
Clarke cares about her customers; it is the reason she opened her store in the first place. She wants to make sure visitors feel better when they walk in—experiencing her hands-on approach, using all five senses in trying out any product—and leaving with feel-good products to help at home. “Come experience it for yourself... and spread the word!”
