Meet The Team

Lauren (Lucia) Rehorst / BS, LMT, LAc, MSOM

Hello and Welcome!
My first interests in natural health came from my mother (a Registered Nurse), my aunt (a Licensed Massage Therapist), and most importantly from my years as a Certified Veterinary Technician at a holistic animal hospital where we successfully treated scores of beloved pets with Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture. 

I started this practice in 2011 with the motivation of helping people have an easier time at life.  Isn't that what its all about?  I'm honored that our therapists and I are able to effect areas of health that aren't well-addressed in the mainstream medical model.  We can help you course-correct minor to medium health issues before they become something more substantial, needing the intervention of a medical doctor.

And if you're already under the supervision of an expert medical team, our complimentary treatment modalities play a synergistically supportive role in keeping you functioning opitimally.

What Lauren does for fun:
-  Cooking and enjoying food

-  Bodybuilding
- Spending quality outdoor time with her family: husband Jon, dogs Shadow and Archie, and horse Ranger
-  Continuing to learn about how to better help you!
