not just a check list of lab results. we see all of you

Heal U is an integrated wellness center providing compassion-based care. In a world of rushed medical appointments, we take the time to listen. There’s always another way – your way.

Founders Amber and Al Gourley noticed a huge gap in qualified nutritionists and dietitians who think outside the box. 

The truth is there’s nothing more a part of our life than food. Yet so many people struggle to find an eating style that best supports their body. 

You end up asking everyone under the sun for answers, but spoiler alert: your insurance will pay for you to see an expert, but no one ever told you. 

Your journey to health doesn’t have to be hard or complicated. Let us show you a better way. 

Located in beautiful Johnson City, Tennessee.

Today Heal U offers Functional Nutrition, Metabolic testing, Body Composition Testing for all your wellness needs.

Massage Therapy, Light Therapy, Infrared Sauna therapy and Float Tanks coming in 2021!

what is Integrative wellness?

Health is multifaceted and it takes different approaches to create a healthy lifestyle that lasts. 

HealU believes your food and nutrition is a cornerstone of your health, but for change to last, we need to look at the whole picture. 

We’re all about setting people up for the long game, so it would be shortsighted of us if we didn’t integrate nutrition with other approaches. We work closely with doctors, physical therapists, massage therapists, acupuncturists, therapists, coaches, and psychologists.

Integrated wellness starts with one question: Why?

Why do you feel the way you do and why does your body function the way it does?

Because there’s always a root cause for a symptom. When we work with the root cause, we set you up for wellness success.

In other words, you’re not a set of isolated symptoms. You’re a whole being. Your mind, body, environment, genetics,even your emotions are interconnected and all contribute to how you feel, how much energy you have, and what steps you need to take to feel better. 


We work with you on strengthening your foundations so you can meet your wellness goals and create sustainable, measurable results.

our core values

Balance. Joy. Empowerment. Inclusivity. Community

We listen to you, take you seriously, respect you, and treat you as the whole person you are. We honor your uniqueness. 

There is no one-size-fits-all wellness plan at Heal U. Together, we’ll customize a plan for your specific needs and support you every step of the way.

We won’t recommend a service you don’t need or that’s not in alignment with your goals. We work with you, not on you.

Our practice is a safe space. Come as you are. This is a judgement-free zone. 


At Heal U we never grow tired of watching our client’s totally transform or hearing…

“I never knew I could feel this good!” 

“I don’t remember the last time I felt this good.” 

“I didn’t realize how bad I felt.” 

“I’m re-engaged with life.”

HealU extends beyond the four walls of our practice.

We’re committed to our Tri-Cities community and beyond. Take a peek at our upcoming workshops.
