In honour of International Women’s Day this year, Bloom Me has decided it is about time that we shine a spotlight on our notable female figure making waves in the wellness industry. These lovely ladies have not only provided us with safe spaces to get in touch with ourselves, they have also given us the gift of motivation and inspiration to create, and the tools to help others.
For a brief overview or to learn more about the beautiful history of International Women’s Day, head to our page here.
Let’s discover world peace, beginning with ourselves!
Co-founder of Float On Hong Kong and SUP Yoga, yoga instructor for pre and post natal mothers, regular presenter at Hong Kong wellness festivals, and all round yummy mummy Dee Cheung is an inspiration for women everywhere. Beginning her journey in Hong Kong 11 years ago, this superwoman along with her partner in wellness Nadine Bubner explores all things real about mother-hood, wellness, and the journey of yoga.
At BloomMe, we are utterly obsessed with booking in float sessions from Dee’s Float On Hong Kong. Float On Hong Kong opened its doors in 2015 offering complete sensory deprivation – a rarity in the hustle and bustle concrete jungle of Hong Kong. The floating pods use epsom salts to keep you suspended and in a state of anti-gravity during the session, and we guarantee the moment you enter the pod all your problems will melt away with a still mind.

A force to be reckoned with in the wellness world Coco Chan is founder of Voltage PR & Wellness Warriors. After growing up in Hong Kong and returning for a successful career in PR, Coco discovered the need for mindfulness and wellness after observing the stress and wear that the hectic Hong Kong lifestyle places on the mind and body. In order to combat this, Coco created the Wellness Warriors. This Hong Kong-curated movement is a way for the wellness like-minded community of Hong Kong to connect and “nourish mind, body, and soul through a collective of mindfulness practices”.
After suffering from chronic anxiety, Coco discovered the power of aromatherapy as a natural way to calm the mind and centre the soul. Oils, fragrances, and a good you-time session can work wonders on helping you to find balance in your life, but Coco urges you to be a smart consumer and be vigilant about purchasing products that are good for you bod.
Psst. A full interview with Coco can be read here.
Looking to spruce up your life? Mental blocks occurring left right and centre from stress? Still trying to get back your summer bod from 2010? Then maybe you need Lia Wong, certified Kinesiologist, GYROTONIC® practitioner and brand strategist to give your life the wellness makeover it needs.
Having worked as a paralegal, a professional dancer, and a digital brand strategist, Lia has seen all walks of life. After sustaining a serious leg injury and continuing to push through the pain for dance, Lia realised that she had disconnected her mind from her body and that taking a step back to heal and travel was the key to wellness. She now dedicates herself to making sure that she lives her wild, a concept of finding balance and happiness in life.
With a mission in life to make your life better, Lia sets out to help give you the tools you need to get your life back on track mind, body, and soul. When your mind is calm and cool, then the rest of your life can feel like a breeze, and with kinesiology you’ll be reaching for the stars in no time at all. If fitness is your game, then the Gyrotonic® Method uses movement principles from yoga, dance, gymnastics, swimming and tai chi to whip you into shape. Brand needs updating? Lia got your back as well!
Only skimming the surface of the wonderful women in Hong Kong, Bloom Me is super proud of everyone making a difference in the world. We love the dedication and commitment from everyone, and hope that one day wellness and mindfulness will be second nature to all. You go, girls!
