WHC Ord Office Moves into New Building with Expanded Mission
Riley Smith, Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker, joins forces with her husband, Taylor Smith, Chiropractor, to bring holistic services together in one location. Riley tells the story of how this all came to fruition.

I am quite certain that we will always keep the philosophy of listening to our clients and patients to assist in mirroring their needs as we journey forward. In the summer of 2
Located within the building: Wholeness Healing Center, Smith Chiropractic, and Miss Emma’s “Lil Piece of Heaven” (massage therapist). Wholeness Healing Center moved to the new building in May 2022.
