Keep Tahoe Healthy

For Elevate Wellness Center's owner Melinda Choy, good health is about more than eating your veggies and chugging orange juice when you feel a cold coming on — it's about listening to what your body is telling you and searching for long-lasting lifestyle solutions over treating symptoms.

"We don't have a health culture that's built into our lifestyles; it's more like you take this medicine when you're sick. There is no real concept of how to bring that into your daily life," said Choy, perched on a stool at the "Communi-Tea" area of the center's new location in The Crossing.
