We are a dynamic team of holistic health professionals who work together to provide quality, cohesive care for the mind, body, and spirit.
The VWS team is passionate about working in community and for community through our individual services and community offerings. We understand the frustration and exhaustion of traveling to multiple locations, often advocating for your own care, and sometimes having to relay information to your providers yourself.
We are proud to have created a healing environment where, whether you are receiving care from one or all of our practitioners, you will have the support of the whole team.
We are a studio because at VWS we believe that creativity, art, movement, and gathering as a group are all integral pieces to the wellness puzzle. So, we made space for that. We hope you will come be inspired to heal, create, and thrive.
