Our Mission is to provide a beautiful, nurturing atmosphere offering high quality, innovative, holistic health services, information and products as well as unique gifts, products, activities and education that support wellness for the body, mind, spirit and community.
Having owned two very successful businesses, Roger and Lori Drienka have now ventured into a new business utilizing much of what comes naturally to them. Lori's great grandmother was a licensed midwife in the State of Colorado in the 1930's and 40's. Having been raised with regular adjustments from her grandfather who was a Chiropractor and Acupuncturist, Lori has always been interested in innovative, alternative health practices.
Helping others has long been Roger and Lori's passion.
Together they have successfully headed many charitable projects such as Canyon Aids, Firewood Projects and A Home For Ruth, which provided a much needed home for a woman whose only son had been killed in the Vietnam War. The Healing Arts Center is just another way to help people share their knowledge and unique gifts to help others.
Lori believes that the project is very blessed and that she was chosen by a divine force to head this project. Following that divine guidance, it is her honor to be a part of such a beautiful endeavor.
The Center is located in a Victorian home built in 1873. Dr. Richard Russell and Dr. Edwin L. Foster lived and practiced here for over 60 years. Today, the legacy of these doctors lives on in the Healing Arts Center.
Born of a vision which the Director, Lori Drienka had when she stepped onto the property, the project has taken on a life of its own. Lori's vision included a very beautiful nurturing setting which offered innovative, alternative health services, education, products and support.
The Center is named in honor of Eli Harris Ashby who passed away on March 28, 2005 at the age of 20. Eli's strength, love and joy for life serves as an inspiration to us.
A new phase of the business emerged in 2013 with the addition of Carly's Boutique. With the help of Lori's daughter Carly who lends her artistic abilities and flair for fashion, Carly's Boutique offers unique, affordable women's apparel and accessories. Located within the Center, Carly's has become a popular spot for ladies seeking great fitting, beautiful clothing and jewelry.
