With a passion for natural healing and healthy living, co-owners, Cathryn Aiken, L.Ac. and Dr. Troy Smith, D.C. joined forces in 2010 and opened Arroyo Grande Health and Wellness. In addition to chiropractic care, the center also offers various forms of massage, among other things. Here’s a little bit more about the staff.

Katie Baldwin


Katie Baldwin offers Massage and Craniosacral Therapy, as well as in-home massage. Many of you may already know her and her work with Dr. Smith at AG Health & Wellness, helping to relax tight muscles before his wonderful adjustments! She was inspired to follow her dreams of becoming a Massage Therapist by the intervention of the Universe. She felt complete in many aspects of her life except in work. She loved her job but never felt like she was following her own path.

She had an inner calling, and the opportunity arise to take action. She feels so much gratitude to be able to do what she feels she was meant to do. When she’s not doing Massage and CranioSacral Therapy, she loves life here on the Central Coast with her wonderful husband and 14-year-old daughter. She loves to garden, run on the beach, practice Tai Chi and enjoys time with her family in many different outdoor activities. She also has a passion for learning, studying and taking classes to increase her knowledge and skill. To learn more, or to book an appointment, visit my website.

Amanda Holder

Marketing Director

Amanda Holder spent more than 15 years in sales, marketing and corporate events for organizations such as the PGA TOUR, IMG Worldwide, NBC television, CBS television and REC Solar. She was going through a stressful time in her career when she first landed at Pismo Beach Family Wellness as a patient. Soon after, she had an opportunity to join the team, and jumped at the chance. Now, with her own wedding planning business, she remains involved, both as a patient and as the marketing director. Amanda believes that healing occurs in the mind, body and spirit — all together. And there’s really no better place to heal than Pismo Beach Family Wellness.

Janette Shablow


Having been a licensed massage therapist since the 1990's, Janette calls herself extremely fortunate to have traveled internationally to study holistic healing in many diverse forms such as Thai massage, Shiatsu and Qi Gong (energy healing). She was powerfully drawn to the San Luis Obispo area which is in harmony with her love of the ocean, wide open nature spaces to meditate in and to continue to learn all that she can to become a better therapist and health practitioner. Before each treatment, her intentions are strongly focused on "how may I only be of benefit that is well received." Experience has taught her to trust her intuition in combination with applying the lengthy healing knowledge that her many respected teachers have gifted her throughout her lifetime. She is thrilled to have joined the Pismo Beach Wellness team to continually keep on learning how to be of greater benefit as a therapist.
Janette is also a Red Cross swimming instructor, loves playing the ukulele and is a self-published author on Amazon which chronicles much of what she has learned in the wonderfully vast kaleidoscope of the holistic healing arts field.
