Doctor

Dr. Ray Andrew MD

With offices in Springville and Moab, Utah, Dr. Ray Andrew uses the tools of functional and antiaging medicine to help men and women with complex health problems transform their lives. Graduating from Family Medicine residency at the University of Missouri at Kansas City, Dr. Andrew moved to Moab, Utah, expecting to follow in the footsteps of the celebrated country docs of yesteryear. However, as patients increasingly referred their family and friends from hours away to “see the hormone doctor in Moab,” his outpatient practice became so busy that he could no longer deliver babies or take care of hospitalized patients. This demand also prompted him to open an office in Utah County. Dr. Andrew attracts patients from all over Utah and several surrounding states who have repeatedly been told, “It’s all in your head” or “There’s nothing we can do for you.” After seeing an average of five other doctors and specialists, patients are relieved to finally discover solutions to their health problems. More importantly, their partnership with Dr. Andrew empowers them not merely to tame disease but also to create health.

My life changed because of a chiropractic adjustment. My back pain was so intense, at 21 years old, I couldn’t even get into bed. I laid on the floor, in pain, all night.

Not only that, but my morning headaches were gone, my nightly insomnia was gone, and my energy levels were more than I’d had in two years.” — Dr. Altman When people ask Dr. Altman what he does for a living he usually tells them: "I'm a chiropractor".

Musician, Artist, and Art Therapy Instructor

Candie Herte

Candie has been a professional musician for decades, and "finding your voice" is something that she has taught many people. Over the years, however, she found her own voice had changed, and her love for art became her second voice - a harmony, so to speak. She began her journey with epoxy artwork after attending a magical art/craft fair held at Holy Hill, Wisconsin. She began taking classes and exploring the methodology. Through her years of experiences (including successes and failures!) she can confidently guide others along their journey of meaningful self expression, and even building a livelihood with this skillset. You will not help but laugh and feel the love as you work with her!
