Vanish Staff

Dr. Justin Taylor:
Dr. Justin Taylor is a Naturopathic Medical Doctor and the co-owner of Vanish, Inc. and Modern Elixir, PLLC. He graduated from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine and completed a residency in general family medicine with a focus in cardiovascular conditions. Dr. Taylor believes that age can be more of a state of mind rather than a disease.  “So many people view aging as a process of decline which inevitably results in the inability to enjoy, normal, productive and healthy living.  This couldn’t be further from the truth.  Aging is a process not a disease.  The body can be nourished into a healthy state allowing us to remain very active and fulfilled in our later years.”

Dr. Taylor’s passion is to improve his patient’s quality of life by providing services targeted at common conditions.  Dr. Taylor provides prolotherapy, sclerotherapy, advanced cellular testing, anti-oxidant therapies as well as aesthetic treatments.

At Modern Elixir, doctor Taylor treats patients for a myriad of conditions ranging from diabetes, depression, and anxiety up to auto-immune diseases and complex conditions.

Nancy Brownell-Howe:

Nancy started Balanced Bowenwork as a small home healing center in 2002 and has grown to become Balanced Bowenwork, LLC.

Through Bowenwork, Nancy was able to recover from a debilitating back injury which she was told would require a second surgery, a spinal fusion. Nancy never had the surgery due to receiving Bowenwork! After her personal and profound results, she decided to learn and share this work with others.

Bowenwork is a gentle stretch, roll, and release, through the fascia to soft muscle and connective tissue, stimulating the central nervous system and the body’s own innate capacity to heal.

Nancy began my studies in January of 2002 and, completed all the required Bowenwork modules by February of 2003 becoming certified in Bowenwork through the Bowen Academy of Australia. She continued my education gaining certification in Specialized Procedures as well as several other specialized classes on women’s health and Bio Tensegrity work. Following completion of an extensive Anatomy and Physiology class, Nancy became accredited as a Professional Bowenwork Practitioner. Nancy has been practicing Bowenwork solely, since 2007.
