Comprehensive Holistic Care Team

The VWS Comprehensive Holistic Care Team is made up of healthcare providers practicing at our studio. Each provider specializes in holistic therapies that contribute to our whole self’s well-being: our body, mind and spirit.

Each provider serves individual clients, but what makes each special is an open spirit and understanding-capacity to work with one another in a collaborative environment. It’s done specifically for the benefit of VWS clients. Once a week the team gathers to support clients with a Holistic Care Plan, ensuring they follow the client’s progress and support them in ways that work best for them.

With this web of support, clients rest knowing they are not alone on their wellness journey and that their voice matters to their healthcare team.
