About Us

Welcome! We are a husband and wife team of Wellness Educators and Holistic Health Practitioners that created Authentic Family Wellness, a name that in itself describes our mission to help families everywhere. 

In 2012 we built I&E Holistic Health Practice located in San Diego, CA. It blossomed into an amazing team of wellness professionals who together co-founded the San Diego Family Wellness Center. After years of helping families in our community discover natural therapies such as massage, acupuncture, reiki, aromatherapy, pregnancy and labor support, nutrition and herbal education, we made a life changing decision to move across the country. Our aspirations grew from coast to coast and new adventures awaited the wellbeing of our family. 

As Students of the Holistic Approach, we know the importance of balance between holistic and conventional approaches to healing. By honoring the body, mind, spirit relationship, we are motivated in providing services & tools that can dramatically improve your quality of life. We are dedicated to promoting the holistic method as a basic necessity as it is the best means of preventative medicine, healing and overall health & wellness. As nutrition, exercise and emotional health are also vital components to a joyful, healthy lifestyle, we strive to educate and empower our clients to cultivate their own happiness and longevity. We trust in the living and breathing body as a powerful vessel! Our positive outlook on life and ourselves is extremely important. Cells are to our body as we people are to this Earth and by truly caring for ourselves we can better care for each other and the world we share.

Ily Scelia, HHP, CMT,

Birth Doula & Essential Oils Educator

Hello! My name is Ily (eye-lee), and I'm also known as "The Jane of all trades." I am a Stay At Home Mom, Full time Oiler, Holistic Health Practitioner, Artist, Writer and Perinatal Mental Health Advocate.

Life is an amazing ride and I have found my calling with what I can provide families with today. It is from my own experiences that I found natural therapies, pure and safe products and have the desire to improve and support education in the maternal mental health movement.

 

I am a California native who now lives in Pennsylvania. I have 3 amazing boys +1 on the way and a husband that is absolutely wonderful. They have all helped me get to where I am today.  I have always kept my personal story out of my professional life, yet my life's experiences have inspired the very professions I have chosen. Personal inspirations have shaped my destiny and fusing the personal and professional aspects of my life is a must to attain true authenticity. In simple talk, I truly do what I love and am transparent.

Essential Oils Educator & Regional Director of Client Services at Aya Healthcare

Hello! I'm Ernie and I'm so excited you're here. I love to connect people and organizations with the services, products, insights, and contacts which propel them toward their personal and professional goals. To cultivate lasting, productive relationships and play a meaningful role in the nurturing of an exceptionally healthy and happy community.

 

I am always seeking peers who value open communication, high ethical standards, passion for their work with a constant desire to improve, humor and positivity, and a strong drive to provide connected, human-centered care.

We all have unique paths to happiness. My experience as a husband, father, and student of humanity has deepened my awareness of the wealth of joy that lives around us all, and has taught me that more happiness is created wherever love is shared. My hope is that you reach out to me, share your thoughts, challenges and aspirations, and that after we’ve connected you are filled with the same wealth of happiness and sense of purpose that I’ve been fortunate enough to enjoy.
