Testimonials for Natasha


“The neurosurgeon said I had two weeks before I had to have back surgery to avoid nerve damage. After three treatments, I got up from the table and realized the pain was gone! I actually wept with relief. I’m really glad I came in. The acupuncture has given me the chance to heal without surgery.”

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.

Testimonials for Dr. Minarik


“I am so thankful for Dr. Minarik! He found my problem immediately after having gone undiagnosed for years. Dr. Minarik prescribed a strict diet, a few supplements and he worked with me to keep medication to a minimum. After only 6 months my diabetes is under control. I only wish I would have found him sooner.”

—T.S.

“The only thing MJ couldn’t fix is that I’m OLD…but she sure made me feel better.”

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.”

—Elissa

Testimonials for MaryJane


“MaryJane is the most passionate and inspirational massage therapist that I have experienced! She is so peaceful and makes you feel very relaxed. She has been very helpful with my back pain and is always checking up on me to make sure things are being taken care of. Thank you so much for everything MaryJane!”

Testimonials for Dr. Minarik


“I have commercially fished for 33 years and have been a competitive power lifter for 25, which has caused severe arthritis in both hips. I’d had prolotherapy done with Dr. Minarik and had geat results. We had both discussed that PRP might be a good way to go for my hips. With the option between replaced hips or PRP, I chose PRP. With just 1 injection on the left side, I’ve had great results and no pain anymore after 6 weeks. Now we are working on the right side. I’m thinking of going back to power lifting.”

Testimonials for Danielle


I am fortunate to have received exceptional care from Danielle over the past two years. It is inspiring as Danielle’s patient to be under care of a practitioner so highly skilled and passionate about Chinese medicine. She is a sensitive listener, intuitive, inquisitive and responsive to her patients. Danielle is gentle in her acupuncture practice, and the treatments provide for relaxation and reflection.

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.
