Drew Nystrom

Drew Nystrom LAc
Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine

Drew Nystrom is a massage therapist, holistic health practitioner, and an acupuncturist. Drew is trained in martial arts (Ninjutsu and Kung Fu) as well as trained in Traditional Chinese Medicine. "My goal as a health care practitioner focuses on bringing the individual back to a desired state of health. An analogy I like to use is how a plant needs a certain amount of sunlight and water. With the correct sunlight and water the plant will flourish and grow strong. Not everyone is the same and I enjoy solving the puzzle of how each patient differs and what is needed for that individual to flourish and achieve optimal health. In other words, find the 'root' of the problem."

Frank Tortorici

Frank Tortorici
Personal Trainer, Wellness Coach

Frank Tortorici grew up in Long Island, NY where as a child he struggled with Tourette’s Syndrome. Frank tried pharmaceutical to treat the symptoms without success. In 7th grade, he started to train with weights, and found working out to have a calming effect on him. He also found it suppressed the symptoms of Tourette’s. He later learned bodybuilding wasn’t nearly as healthy as it appeared, as participants often used unhealthy or unnatural products and steroids. As a result, he learned about natural ways to eat and then natural ways to treat Tourette’s. Frank now works as a wellness coach and personal trainer to teach his clients a more natural and sustainable way to health.

Becki Andrus

Becki Andrus
Essential Oils

Becki was once told by doctors that she would be on multiple medications the rest of her life. Becki grew up in a household where her father was a doctor, and the normal routine for sickness was go to the doctor, pay her copay, pick up the prescription, then feel better. When Becki was diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome, the doctor gave her two prescriptions and sent her home. After taking the medication which slightly relieved the symptoms and caused some side effects, Becki decided she didn’t want to be on medication the rest of her life. Although there was lots of information available, her instinct told her to get back to natural eating and focus on treatments in their most natural forms. Becki started eating natural foods and stopped taking the harsh medications, and focused on natural living instead. She then started learning about essential oils. It is now Becki’s mission to help people understand how exactly how natural treatments are effective, why essential oils should be used on a regular basis, to help others make changes in your life to feel better every day.
