About Us

The Owners

All that we do with our clients serves to educate them to a better understanding of health and vitality.  Health is a precious gift.  We believe that it is the personal responsibility of each individual to maintain spiritual, mental/emotional, and physical health. 

When illness is experienced we need to remember that God is the only one who heals according to his perfect plan and purpose.  Joanna and I consider ourselves blessed that we are one of the many instruments, chosen to be used by Him according to His perfect will, to help others on their journey to optimal health. 

“Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: who forgiveth all thine iniquities;
who healeth all thy diseases; who redeemeth thy life from destruction;
who crowneth thee with loving kindness and tender mercies; who satisfieth thy mouth with good things;
so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s”
Psalms 103:2-5
