Wellness Integrative Medical Center, Inc.

How long you have been in business for yourself?:

1 year on July 15th. The business is ever growing & evolving.

Business product or service:

Traditional Medicine, Reiki Healing, Family Fitness, Cosmetic Skin Care and products (holistic and healthy aging), Community Supported Agriculture Grocery Pick- Up Program (My patients know I bring it all right to ’em, and mean it when I say eat right and exercise since their produce can be delivered directly to them via my office each Thursday).

What led you to start your business?:

Friends, family, patients, and my savings account ;-)!

Order your signage early, and pay attention to local ordinances.

Walking patients with high blood pressure and diabetes through our Free Community Herbal Healing Garden to pick herbs that are right for them.
