About Evergreen Acres Wellness

Marlene and Hans Pietschmann


In 1990 – Marlene studied Animal Science through ICS in Montreal. She has since learned how to use herbs and nutrition for pets, and has a successful animal practice in alternative health.


The Pietschmanns started an investigation into alternative health in 1994 to help Hans with his health issues. At this time, the doctors had given up and told them to sell everything and find a ground floor apartment, as by the age of 50 he would be in a wheelchair. This was news they were not prepared to sit with, so off they went in search of a different venue. Alternative health has given them a whole, new, healthy lease on life and they have never looked back.

The first challenge was to get his health back on track. It took 3 years, but with the new education Marlene has received, she is able to have people regain their health at a much faster pace than their journey took.

At the Holistic Wellness Centre, Marlene and Hans will focus on getting to the root cause of your issue, and getting your health back in balance.


“When we hear a client say, ‘what a difference these herbs are making, I have more energy & I feel so much healthier since starting this program,’ this is music to our ears that another person has been helped to achieve a healthier and happier lifestyle.” – Marlene Pietschmann


The Holistic Wellness Centre has been built over the years by word of mouth.
