Lorie Struzik, LMT

Lorie was a longtime competitive cyclist who discovered the many benefits of chiropractic and bodywork. These interests led her to begin practicing Reiki in 2009 and she is a Reiki Master. After working 20 years as an Engineer, a desire to remain in this area rather than transfer to Ohio, led to Lorie's decision to embark on a new career. Following her other life-long interest, she graduated from the Academy of Massage and Bodywork in 2014.

Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
