We believe that when someone experiences vitality they will never be the same, never except a lower standard of health and are better because of it. We strive to show people what their life could be like, then we send them back into the world willing and able to offer their best self to those they love, their hobbies, their job and their life. We believe that you are worth it.

Amber L. Hollis has been in the medical field for 15 years, and is fearless in the pursuit of her passion: healing the hurting, lifting the fallen and restoring the broken. After researching and studying multiple medical systems, it became apparent that Chinese Medicine was the most effective path for actually helping others. Upon receiving her Masters of Traditional Chinese Medicine Amber went on to complete a rigorous residency program at The Acupuncture & Wellness Center in Washington State. This is the largest Chinese medical clinic in the United States and it was here where Amber learned a unique style of acupuncture called Distal Needle Acupuncture , and began prescribing herbal medicines based on a specialized form of Medical Pulse Diagnosis. The results were unlike anything she had ever seen or heard of previously. Profound to say the least.
Amber has treated thousands of patients and lives for the changes she sees in their lives. For her, there is nothing as invigorating as helping someone live a life they only dreamt was possible. Amber changes people’s lives, and that is why she gets out of bed every morning.
Not surprisingly, Amber’s love for health and vitality extends to her personal life. She is an ardent practitioner of yoga, starting each morning on her mat before heading into the rest of her day. Balance and breath are what yoga is all about. Balance and breath are what life is about. She believes that if one learns to find these two things in the midst of a difficult pose, one can then learn to use them elsewhere in life to breathe through and bring balance into any difficult situation.
In addition to medicine, nutrition, and yoga, Amber loves to travel, to spend time by the ocean and in the mountains, and to constantly seek out new adventures. In the end, it is health and happiness that will bring vitality to the world.
Chris Volesky, L. Ac.
Chris is a brilliant practitioner who has extensive knowledge and experience in the field of Chinese Medicine. We hand picked him to partner with us at The Vitality Center because of his determination to further the field of medicine, his ability to cultivate health and relief in his patients, and because the quality of care he provides is unparalleled.
Chris has been able to achieve this standard of excellence through studying with the top doctors and practitioners in the field. His nerd-like qualities (that we love so much) drove him to not only memorize what the masters taught, but he then practiced and perfected it with clinical efficacy in hospitals in North Carolina, Minnesota, and Washington. It was this clinical experience that motivated him to look beyond what he had learned. He made the medicine his own and became a master in the field of Chinese Medicine.
During his residency at Robert Doane’s Acupuncture and Wellness Center, the largest clinic in the country, Chris treated thousands of patients. He became tremendously skilled at diagnosing the root cause of symptoms through the pulse and uses that knowledge to prescribe personalized herbal medicines.
Apart from Chinese Medicine, Chris is a lifelong musician and sings to his children every night. He loves to spend time with friends and family playing games, hiking, and engaging in general Tom foolery.
