Real Referrals

Tried and true wellness professionals you can turn to for healing and support

Pros We Love

Sometimes you just need a little—or a lot of...—extra help to get yourself moving towards "wellness." That's so normal and totally ok. And, that's why there are experts out there in a breadth of health, wellness and healing arts disciplines.

The practitioners and businesses below (listed alphabetically, not preferentially!) are ones we personally recommend. We have used their services and had excellent results and amazing interpersonal experiences.


Even if you can't connect with these folks in person, check out their websites. You might just get some new ideas or find resources that are accessible to you.

Please note: These referrals are based on our personal opinions as of January 2020. We aren't receiving any compensation (other than good karma points!) for calling out and praising these people and businesses. While we reached out to each business to ask for its blessing to include it in this listing, only some responded. We listed all of them anyway, but may need to adjust this list or specific listings at some point to accommodate each business's wishes.
