Natural Healing Center

Our Story

We’re on a mission to make natural healing more accessible because we know first hand how it can literally change and save lives. Because that’s exactly what it did for us. 

Long before we opened the Natural Healing Center, we both suffered from debilitating health conditions.

Even though Shannon was an avid athlete, she was tired and wired with chronic lower back pain and deteriorating eyesight. Severe brain fog made completing even the simplest of tasks extremely complicated. In the late ‘80s, Shannon’s mom passed away at a hospital where alternative treatments were not offered and Shannon knew she was being called to learn natural healing alternatives. She spent the next 10 years earning her accreditation as a Holistic Health Practitioner (HHP) and Naturopath while developing her skills both in the United States and in China. In 1989, the company Muscle Therapy was born which evolved into the Natural Healing Center of Orange County. 

In 2000, Renee was running a $50 million dollar company, raising two small children, and fighting a painful, recurring condition her doctors couldn’t explain. She was advised to have surgery, which she did, but the symptoms returned. So she was advised to have surgery again, which she did, only for the symptoms to return again. And you guessed it, she was advised to have surgery for the third time. And she did. Shortly thereafter, she and Shannon met in a business course, and Shannon introduced Renee to the power of natural healing.  After heeding Shannon’s recommendations, Renee never fought her condition again. 

A few years later, a heart condition led Renee back to Shannon for additional insight. While Shannon relied on muscle testing, Renee insisted on gathering scientific evidence alongside it. Her blood work mirrored the muscle testing results. And Renee had all of the evidence she needed to confirm, Shannon’s program worked. She continued to follow her recommendations, changing the food she ate and fed her family, along with the products they used on their bodies and to clean their home. And it didn’t take long before everyone in the family had more energy, strength, and immunity. Renee was hooked. 

In 2016, a job change led Renee to consider an offer Shannon had been making her for years: to join forces and make natural healing more accessible to everyone. Today, Shannon continues to care for clients while Renee primarily runs the business behind the scenes. Together, they’ve offered hope and healing to thousands of patients.  

Who We Serve

While we love serving everyone who needs help, the vast majority of our clients are women who have chronic pain and fatigue. Our services are frequently sought out by those suffering from digestive issues, hormonal issues, autoimmune challenges, candida, etc.

We also work with athletes to optimize performance, reduce the risk of injury and heal old injuries. From acupressure to massage therapy to nutrition response testing and beyond, we offer a full spectrum of holistic healing services for athletes.

Families seek us out when needing naturopathic care for children, adults and their pets! We support every member of the family with nutritional recommendations based on testing, individualized wellness plans, brain health, preventative care and more.

Awarded “Doctor of the Future” by Ulan Nutritional Systems, Inc., Shannon is a lifetime learner, who 30 years into her career, is still pursuing new healing knowledge on a daily basis.
