Our mission is to help you experience healing in every area of your life.

When you hear the word ‘wellness’, you probably think of two things: nutrition and exercise. We believe wellness is much more than just the physical.

We want you to experience wellness in the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. When these four things come together, you will finally experience the life you have always dreamed of.

-Drs. Mark & Michele Sherwood
