Sequoia Mountain Healers

Sequoia Mountain Healers represents a group of independent practitioners in Three Rivers providing a variety of natural healing, therapeutic, and relaxation services and products. The historic town of Three Rivers is the gateway community to Sequoia National Park.

This region has a history of promoting well-being to visitors to this Sierra Nevada national park and is the inspiration behind the services offered. It has been a long tradition for visitors to enjoy the serene environment as an escape from the big city. Visitors may explore the natural and cultural opportunities of the mountains and foothills, and then return to town to partake in a variety of offerings including venues along the river for which the town is named. The Kaweah River connects the high peaks of the Sierra Nevada to the valley floor through water. It is one of the steepest rivers in North America. Early settlers in this foothill town were the first non-native American explorers of what is now Sequoia National Park.
