For Immediate Release – – Newberg, OR – September 13, 2017 –  Amber Cook, local massage therapist and business coach, launched HealingWaze.com, a holistic health directory in June 2017. This robust directory is primed to support 70+ modalities both locally and nationally for holistic practitioners and privately-owned practices. After listening to clients complain and struggle to find quality holistic health care when they need it, Cook went into action and began to develop a model that supports both consumers and private practices. As a member of the holistic health care community since 2003, Cook learned that this industry niche has been under-served leaving customers with little resources to find practices and practitioners with little tools or budgets to promote their business. Cook believes HealingWaze is the most comprehensive solution to many practitioner marketing challenges and charges a small membership fee of less than $20 per month.

“HealingWaze was created from our passion for helping and connecting people,” Cook says. “My husband, Logan and I are big advocates for healthy living and are committed to supporting the holistic health care community.”
