Get Energized while Treating Yourself
Virtuous Wellness is a gift from God!
In the height of the recession, service-based businesses were not doing well. Despite this, Virtuous Wellness Center was able to open its doors in 2011.
My vision was to use my gift of healing and create a wellness center where people in the local community can go to receive amazing care! Integrating physical therapy and massage therapy in a calming and peaceful location, I anticipated people would see the value and entrust us with their journey towards wellness.
VWC delivers one-on-one physical therapy and massage therapy treatments for every age and stage of recovery. Massage is a wonderful compliment to most physical therapy programs and can assist in faster return to activity whether an athlete, weekend warrior or active person. Massage therapy also is a great addition to training programs and for managing acute and chronic conditions.
