Welcome to AIW Wellness Center

"When health is absent, wisdom cannot reveal itself, art cannot manifest, strength cannot fight,

wealth becomes useless and intelligence cannot be applied." - Herophilus

Our Mission

To provide a center of holistic-centered health, wellness, workshops, and resources that educate, enable, and empower individuals within our mountain communities to lead healthier and more productive lives.


AIW Community Wellness Center

Miracles Occur Through The Hearts And Hands Of Nurses…

Angels in Waiting (AIW) is a nonprofit tax-exempt 501(c)(3) charity, created by nurses who are addressing the needs of America's growing population of medically fragile foster care infants and children. AIW created Chapter #490, a California State Law ensuring that California's growing medically fragile foster care population is placed into the hearts and hands of our dedicated nurses. To help bring awareness to our growing charity of nurses and the little angels they care for,

the Founder and Board Members of Angels In Waiting voted to open AIW Community Wellness Center to help build a healthier mountain community, one person at a time.

All proceeds from the products sold at AIW Community Wellness Center 

go directly towards Angels In Waiting's nurse recruitment and retention program.

Pain Management

Therapeutic Massage 

by Erika Eickman

cmt, nmt, csmt, esmt


Therapeutic massage involves addressing deeper, more specific muscles of the body compared to a Swedish massage that is performed to provide relaxation. The therapist needs extensive knowledge of anatomy and physiology and addresses the joint range of motion limitations. Therapeutic modalities treat the soft tissues of the body with a combination of techniques that include myofascial release, trigger point therapy, tissue manipulation and mobilization. These techniques are aimed at correcting soft tissue imbalances and dysfunctions, enhancing range of motion, increasing blood flow, decreasing pain and healing time, and more. CBD oil can be added to any massage to enhance the reduction of inflammation and pain. Each clinical session is designed towards the client's specific therapeutic needs which are revealed through their physicians diagnosis, direct communication, instinctual, and energetic discovery.

 Therapeutic Coaching & Psychotherapy 

LET IT HAPPEN WITH NANCY LAPPEN LCSW

Asking for help is the first step to take in order to feel supported and confident with any change.

Building trust in a therapeutic alliance may be an initial challenge.

However, I welcome the opportunity to create a safe and confidential environment as you and I co-create a sense of fulfillment and increased esteem. You will become more accepting of yourself and your ability to convert what isn’t working into wellness. 

I start with a bias: that you and all people are creative, resourceful and whole exactly as you are!

Personally I have been a therapist for 28 years, and a certified professional coach since 2003. Welcome to our new Community Wellness Clinic.

Creature Therapies

for our furry, feathery,

and four-legged loved ones

by Erika Eickman

cmt, nmt, csmt, esmt


Animal Sports Massage

for physical and mental pain management 


IN-HOME ONLY

Animals benefit from touch just like we do!

But sports massage goes beyond the loving petting they get from you. This therapeutic treatment modality can alleviate pain by reducing inflammation & swelling in the joints, enhance range of motion, rid the body of harmful toxins, positively effect emotion & mental stability.

It can be performed on most any animal, at any point in their life. From the athletic, even competing horse or dog to the retiring and beloved family pet.


Session lengths range due to size and compliance of the creature.

AIW

Trust Technique & Reiki

for bringing peace of mind and healing along with greater connection 

IN-HOME ONLY

The sensitive nature and unwavering honesty that animals cannot hide give aide to their healing process. The Trust Technique was designed to bring peace of mind to animals who have been abused, neglected, mistreated in any way, or who have behavioral problems such as excessive barking, anger around other dogs, discomfort with unfamiliar humans, dislike for being put on a leash, etc.

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. Universal life force energy is channeled through the practitioner and applied in either a hands-on method or at a distance. Reiki treats body, emotions, mind and spirit.

These wonderful modalities work hand-in-hand to give ease , confidence and complete comfort to the stressed animal.


Session lengths vary. CBD Oil for pets available upon request for an additional minimal fee.

Client Testimonial

"Nancy- I totally feel I have made progress in understanding myself better. You have given me the tools with which I can continue to forge on. Guess what, I want to say now I feel my glass is half-full!"

"Nancy - I always like to feel that one chooses one's own paths of life. The day I made the decision to enter into therapy with you was a hallmark for me." 


"Erika is an amazing massage therapist! I'm addicted to massages & she's the best massage therapist I've ever used. This is not just a "back rub", this is true therapy for painful muscles. Highly recommend letting her work on your pain points!"

Jaymie Arquilevich


"Erika is more than a dedicated massage therapist--she's an amazing healer who brings her love of all life to the experience. No animal is too small or strange for her: she did a session with our bearded dragon! He has kidney tumors."

Kerri Climer


"Erika is a fantastic massage therapist. She finds the knots and knows just the right technique and pressure to use to work them out. She is also a very nice and caring person which makes the massage experience that much better."

Linda Blac


My horse loves Erika! She has really helped him when he's been hurt and by working on some old issues. She has a really nice energy that seems to relax him too :)  

Jamie Kinser

"Erika is knowledgable, personable and thorough. She does an evaluation each visit, focussing on what each client requires. As a long term client of hers, I am confident that she is a real pro and her work is truly beneficial, particularly on a weekly basis."
