Testimonials for Dr. Ward-Selinger


“As an internal medicine physician, I had a recent and unique opportunity to invite Dr. Ward-Selinger to observe while I saw my patients in my clinic over several months. We both found it very beneficial to get each others’ perspective. My patients greatly appreciated her input. What she demonstrated to me was a deep clinical knowledge base and a caring and compassionate way about her. I was very impressed and could not recommend her more highly.”

Testimonials for Dr. Ycasas


“Dr. Terry is one of those practitioners who actually addresses the whole patient. She is incredibly present during the appointment. I really feel like she listens and treats me with great care and respect. I never come away feeling like I have been manhandled, and feel uplifted after each session with her.”

Testimonials for Natasha


“I have been a physician for 25 years. It is always interesting to see the faces of my patients when I tell them that my health care provider is my acupuncturist. I always tell them that when I am sick the first person I call is Tasha. Unfortunately, there is still a great deal of skepticism about the benefits of acupuncture among the medical community and the public. I can attest by personal experience, and that of my patients, that acupuncture is a very effective and valid healing method. Tasha has been my caregiver for the last 6 years, she is not only an excellent acupuncturist she is also a wonderful person. I refer many of my patients to her and all of them share the same opinion. I highly recommend Tasha not only as a patient but also as a physician who has seen the benefit and excellent results that she has achieved with my own patients that I have referred to her.”

Testimonials for Ken


“I have been very impressed by the massages I have received from Ken Reader. He offers all the best qualities of what one looks for in a good massage therapist. His touch is refined, experienced and sensitive to the body’s needs. As a massage therapist myself, I understand the rarity of finding a practitioner who embodies all of these qualities. I very much enjoy my sessions with Ken and look forward to a continued practioner/client relationship.”

Message from the Founders

Ryan Minarik, ND, LAc. and Lynsey Minarik
Co-Founders
Safely, and Effectively, You Can Be Well.

While many times health problems have a straightforward solution, often patients seeking alternative or holistic medicine have complicated, long-term issues that they have not found solutions or answers for with conventional care. Whether you are visiting our clinic for a simple concern with natural treatment options, or a complex condition that may require multiple approaches, we hope our range of practitioners can offer a comprehensive solution to your health condition. While our goal is to help everyone that steps in our door, we realize at times we may not have the right answer. If during your visit you find we do not have the care you need, would like a referral, or simply have constructive feedback on how we can make our clinic better, we welcome your input. Please email one of us at drminarik@elixiawellness.com or lynsey@elixiawellness.com.
