Three decades of bringing health & harmony to the lives of others

Since she kept vigil for a dying nursing home patient at age 16, Leann Thrapp has devoted her life to helping people develop naturally healthy attitudes toward death and dying. She has come to understand that this is the only way people can truly realize their fullest potential for physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.
