Welcome to the Lake Tahoe Wellness Center!
Good health is not merely the absence of pain and disease; it is a state of well-being allowing us to fully enjoy life by being at our best physically, mentally and socially.
The Wellness Center approach to better health includes healthy habits which maximize the body's own inherent healing abilities. We believe that true health comes from within and is the result of maintaining a healthy body: this includes proper nutrition, exercise, rest, relaxation and a positive state of mind.
The programs we offer to achieve your wellness include chiropractic, acupuncture, active release therapy, massage therapy, an infrared sauna, yoga and tai chi classes, an indoor climbing wall and a full herbal pharmacy.
On any given weekend, you will find Dr. Lily mountain biking in the backcountry of Tahoe, hiking with Mark Kuehne, her husband, and her two dogs, or shredding the slopes at Northstar. Otherwise, you will most likely find her in service of others, trying to promote wellness in her community: from mission trips to other countries, to providing expert testimony in court, to constant education in her field and complimentary fields.
Lately you might see Mark in action on his new electric fat bike, cruising the trails of Kings Beach in style. With a profound love for the Taoist philosophy, Mark centers his life on balance in all areas. His dedication to providing healing to others is only matched by his love of playfulness. He spends many mornings out on the mountain, snowboarding or telemark skiing in the winter and downhill mountain biking in the warmer months.
Kristin (CAMTC #75053) graduated in 2016 from Hands on Healing Institute outside of Los Angeles, CA and has been dubbed by one enthusiastic client as the “Stealthy Tissue Specialist” due to her fusion of Deep Tissue, Myofascial Release, Energy, and Sports modalities in her bodywork sessions, as well as her in-depth knowledge of anatomy/kinesiology. Her practice, as well as continuing education and self-development over the last 4 years, has taken her all over the world, from the Sierra Nevada of Colombia to healing retreats in Costa Rica, and Breath Work intensives in Bali. She is certified in Neurokinetic Therapy (https://neurokinetictherapy.com/overview/), a system of muscle testing and bodywork geared toward assessment and rehabilitation of injury and longstanding movement patterns. As a returning resident to the Tahoe area, she is also expanding her knowledge at the Bodhi Tree School of Healing Arts in Carson City in order to obtain licensing in Nevada.
Kristin would tell you there are a myriad of subjects and experiences that we all explore, lean into, learn through, and bring awareness to in our day to day lives. However, it is often our own bodies that are the most mysterious to us. By bringing an individual’s innate curiosity back into themselves, Kristin partners with her clients in their rediscovery, rehabilitation, and rejuvenation of personal wellness. Empowerment through healing and self-care is her main motivation to practice bodywork.

I have been going to Dr. Lily for my chiropractic needs the last few years and she always has me leaving feeling so great. I have been sick the last two days with a head cold and my neck and head have been a mess, but after just an hour of leaving her office I already feel so much better and actually have an appetite again. She even did specific adjustments for all of my sinuses and my breathing is much better and I finally feel relaxed for the first time in days. Thanks Lily!
I have never been anything but satisfied with my visits to the wellness center, wether it be massage , chiropractic , accupuncture , or yoga ..a well skilled crew with lots of love :)..... thank you ,much appreciated!
