The Wellness Buzz

From locally made skincare to a sprawling new sports complex, these Southwest Florida debuts offer plenty of ways to feel your best.

A Vigorous Investment ‘Health is wealth’ is a mantra audiologist Ann Rasmussen and financial planner Eric M. Marvin take to heart at their new Health & Wealth Co. on Fifth Avenue South in Naples. Combining their skills and interests, the two created a wellness hub that offers financial and physical health services, as well as a retail space for cannabidiol (CBD) products, organic skincare, vitamins and other healthful goods. “I’ve always believed that you can’t enjoy your wealth if you can’t enjoy your health,” Marvin says. Run by a team of six—including doctors, nurses and nutritionists—the company offers services from audiology to acupuncture to estate planning. In a single visit, you can sort out estate and insurance assets in the glass-enclosed office that anchors the space, connect with a functional medicine doctor for micronutrient testing and hook up to an IV drip for a quick vitamin B-packed energy boost. Inspirational quotes on the walls reinforce the philosophy, like an oh-so-fitting sentiment from writer Josh Billings that says, “Health is like money, we never have a true idea of its value until we lose it.” Look out for events like ladies’ nights with free consultations, by-donation yoga classes and monthly guided meditations. —Jaynie Bartley Smell the Roses Here’s a better, cleaner way to indulge in mood-boosting aromatherapy.
