Happy Whole You started as an online wellness platform to support individuals on their wellness journey. In 2017, founder Anna Marie Frank wanted to open her own brick and mortar wellness centers. Her idea was to combine technology with proven holistic health modalities that can give clients quicker results without negative side effects.
The first center was opened in 2018 in Pocatello Idaho, followed by the second center in Bakersfield California, then another opportunity arose to open a place in Fort Collins Colorado.
During a pandemic two of the locations were sold to other practitioners. Currently there is an open Happy Whole You in Bakersfield California and our most recent center that opened is in Raleigh North Carolina.
Happy Whole You embodies all elements of wellness. We support the mind, body, and soul. We combine Technology with old school holistic health modalities. Our goal is to help everyone become a more Happy Whole individual.
More recently our founder launch our own line of brain nutraceuticals. The story behind our products: The creator of the Happy Whole You nutraceutical line is Anna Marie Frank. Anna Marie is a doctor of naturopathy, certified brain health professional and wellness expert who fought a long battle with depression, brain fog, and memory issues. It was her desire to take the multiple bottles of natural products that she needed, and formulate a line of supplements that many would benefit from. Her idea was simple, 1) Keep the formulas super effective and safe, 2) Eliminate the need to buy a dozen different products, and 3) Ensure the affordability of high-end quality supplements.
Amy has always been passionate about helping others, health, and wellness. She was blessed with Anna Marie Frank, the founder of Happy Whole You when they met at Western Michigan’s Track Team. They kept in contact over the years and Amy was always intrigued by what Anna was doing to help others. On December 10, 2020 during the COVID pandemic, Amy knew exactly what her mission to do on earth. All the pieces came together and it was perfectly clear. Amy knew it would be a journey with bumps and turns, but now that she was connected to her mission, she knew what needed to happen. Amy had to open a Happy Whole You in Raleigh, North Carolina with her two sisters, Kandice and Julie.
Amy knew she wanted to bring her sisters alongside of her and be a part of the HWY team. She called Anna on December 11th 2020 and told Anna that she was inspired and asked if she could open a Happy Whole You in Raleigh, North Carolina. Anna already knew North Carolina would be a location and wondered who the person would be to continue her mission with Happy Whole You. We started the brainstorming, looking for locations, figuring out the financing and on February 25, 2021. For a few months, they prepared the space and started taking in family and friends. Soon, the word to started to spread about HWY’s healing and people wanted to experience the beautiful magic.
