Our sincere appreciation to Eddie Reymond, owner of Eddie's Health Shoppe, for his generous support in providing gift certificates to our volunteers.

CHEO is blessed with a wonderful team of Volunteers who have been instrumental in building a strong foundation, along with our Supporting Members and Practitioners, for our continuing mission of "Discovering Options for Holistic Wellness" in our Knoxville area communities.

We look forward to seeing your ideas, comments or suggestions for programs, locations, media, online and print directories and any other ways you think CHEO can increase awareness and knowledge about holistic and complementary wellness in our Knoxville community.  Please email your thoughts to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
