Testimonials for Natasha


“Acupuncture and Chinese medicine used to be a place I would turn when my primary care provider was unable to address my concerns. After seeing Natasha, I now think of her first.”

—C.D., RN MPH

Testimonials for Danielle


Danielle is a meticulously holistic practitioner. Her constant skill in seeing and hearing me throughout the several months we worked on healing acute and long standing health issues enabled her to work miracles on a lot of levels. Her Chinese herbs and acupuncture work are powerful and personally attuned and updated. In addition, she was so perceptive to whatever I said that she was able to link another modality of healing at Elixia and suggest it to me, which provided structural shifts that, together with her caring work and positive vibe, has returned me to wellness.

-S.L., 56yo Female

Testimonials for Natasha


“Tasha is a wonderful acupuncturist. I’ve had acupuncture throughout the country, over many years, and Tasha is among the best. Not only is she highly skilled, she creates a nurturing, caring, and warm atmosphere where healing can take place on many levels. I started going for treatments of an arthritic thumb and after 6 weeks the pain has been cut at least 75% and is only sporadic. We are also working on other areas of body and mind that need attention/treatment. I always leave feeling uplifted, stress-free, and buoyant. I feel very lucky that I found Tasha and would recommend her to everyone.”

—S.H.

Testimonials for Dr. Minarik


Dr Minarik has always been a one of my favorite doctors, he’s super knowledgable and truly cares. I’ve seen him for a number of things but in recently he’s helped me tremendously by easing my joint pain and increasing stability with prolotherapy and PRP.

Testimonials for Dr. Minarik


“I’m a 66 year old practitioner of Crossfit, a vigorous regiment of weight training, mobility training and gymnastics. I had been involved in the sport when I damaged my shoulder. You identified the issue as a complex combination of bursitis, tendinitis, torn ligaments and a generally unhealthy 66 year old shoulder. You recommended several PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) treatments… My recovery has been more than I had hoped. Within four months I was back to pre-injury levels. At the beginning of 2014 [after PRP treatment] I began training of the Crossfit Open Games. I completed the 5 session competition several weeks ago… The competition included, among other movements, pull-ups, dead lifts, burpees, and thrusters. All of these movements required a strong, active, healthy shoulder.

Thanks for the treatment and the resulting opportunity to become a better Crossfit athlete.”

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.
