Three Strand Wellness is a calming, convenient place for Mental Health support, Yoga, Meditation, Massage Therapy, and more…
While we accept patients from all walks of life, we are particularly focused to those of you in the role of taking care of others - Healthcare Workers, Physicians, Nurses, Teachers, Caregivers, First Responders, Police, Firefighters, Clergy, and Parents. Too often, we find that people we find that people in these roles tend to postpone or neglect caring for themselves.
Your total wellness requires attention to your total self. Each of our specialists help you focus on self-care with integrative, holistic health in mind and with attention to all of the parts of you. If any part of you is hurting, (Physical, Mental or Spiritual), your general health and wellness is impacted.
Three Strand Wellness was created to help you integrate all of what makes you beautiful.
