Testimonials for Jamie


“I really appreciate all of your work and greatly enjoyed the sessions we had over a years time. I truly learned so much from you and liked gaining knowledge about muscles and how the body works. I am still practicing some of the stretches you taught me. You are an inspiration, which is why I am writing. I just recently went to another career preview at East West College of Healing Arts.”

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.

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.
