Founder of The Center for Holistic Wellness
JEDIDIAH D. SMITH, Clinical Holistic Health Practitioner (CHHP), Ph.D.

I grew up under the guidance of a Native American mother who had been taught reflexology from a very long lineage of such practitioners.  My father, who was an Herbalist well before I was born, had a thirst for natural ways of healing and eating.  I was destined to have a passion for Holistic Wellness and Health.   

I have came to learn and believe that if a person is to truly heal they must also address that component which we call their spirituality, as well as learn to nourish their body and mind.  

My journey has allowed me to discover talents within myself as well as learn techniques to enhance the experience of the patients referred to me and my clients.  


I feel truly blessed to be able to facilitate the Holistic Wellness Goals of all who seek my services and the services of the The Center for Holistic Wellness.
