The family who started Olive Tree Wellness Center has firsthand experience with chronic disease and illness, as multiple family members have active Lyme Disease from ticks. After exploring the treatment options available to them and finding limited solutions, they turned to alternative medicine.

Inspired by this discovery, they founded Olive Tree Wellness to help others find healing through alternative methods such as infrared therapy, organic skincare, and nutritional supplements.
