Janine Griffin, the CEO of Central Wellness, understands the importance of empowering women to feel confident at any age or stage of life. Alongside her daughter, she opened Central Wellness (CW) over a decade ago with a vision of creating a place where women could come to rebuild their health, self-worth, and leave feeling beautiful. “I believe everyone deserves to feel and look their best,” she says, “and that the only opinion that matters when it comes to your well-being and appearance is your own.”  

CW opened its doors in 2012 with just two staff members. “We set out to build a place where women can come to fill up their cups and then go back out there and conquer the world,” Janine shares, reflecting on her motivation. Today, they operate from a state-of-the-art facility on South 24th Street, with a team of 12 highly skilled medical and aesthetics professionals. Their mission is to support women in becoming the best versions of themselves, embracing individual definitions of success and beauty. 

Although motivated by women and known for their services that ease aging processes, CW also serves men and helps clients at all stages of aging - from teenagers managing acne to those in their 80s.  

The CW team believes that aging gracefully is possible with the right holistic approach, and they provide services that treat clients from the inside out.  

Wellness from the inside out 

Hormone Therapy 

One treatment CW prides themselves on is their Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) program, which addresses the natural decline in hormones that occurs with aging, particularly in women during menopause. Symptoms of hormone imbalance can range from subtle to debilitating and are often masked by other medications. CW specializes in hormone optimization, offering a holistic approach to alleviate symptoms and restore a normal, healthier life. Their Nurse Practitioners work with patients to balance hormones using bio-identical hormones derived from plant compounds. Regular follow-up appointments ensure continuous monitoring and adjustment of treatment for optimal balance.  

IV Therapy  

IV Infusions for illness and inflammation, skin, hair and nails, energy and health, recovery boost, and anti-aging have been a service offered at CW for years. Used to hydrate, replenish nutrients, and give a significant boost of energy by replenishing B vitamins. All of their nutrients are vegan, human sterile medications created in a 503B Pharmacy referred by and heavily monitored by the FDA. 

Hair Loss 

Hair loss affects millions in the U.S., but CW offers effective treatments to reverse hair loss and boost hair density. The causes of hair loss can vary, including genetics, hormones, stress, and more. It's important to differentiate between normal hair shedding and hair loss, which leads to thinning hair and reduced density. Central Wellness provides various treatment options, such as supplements, PRP, scalp treatments, and medications to address hair loss and promote hair regrowth. 

Treatments that will have you looking as young as you feel 


Botox is a popular treatment used to temporarily reduce or eliminate facial lines and wrinkles, achieving a smoother, younger appearance. Botox is commonly used to treat forehead lines, crow's feet, frown lines, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) issues, excessive sweating, and more.  

The providers at Central Wellness are Nurse Practitioners, Registered Nurses, Board Certified, and experts in facial anatomy. Following FDA protocols, they offer results that can last up to one hundred days.  


Dermal fillers restore volume and fullness in the face, addressing the effects of aging, genetics, and weight loss. At Central Wellness, modified hyaluronic acid fillers are used, adding volume to facial areas without surgery. They smooth wrinkles, increase mid-face and jawline volume, and enhance lips for a rejuvenated and balanced look. Dermal fillers offer a non-surgical option with minimal downtime for facial refreshment. 

CW offers a multitude of treatments that stimulate collagen production to help your skin ease into aging more gently and naturally with the help of science. Bio-Stimulators such as Hyper Dilute Radiesse, Sculptra, and PRF. These unique, anti-aging treatments stimulate natural collagen production for firmer, plumper, and smoother skin. 

Non-invasive Treatments 

Chemical peels improve skin texture and appearance by increasing cell turnover and stimulating collagen. Radio Frequency Micro-Needling also stimulates collagen and elastin production along with Ultherapy, which uses micro-focused ultrasound to lift and tighten the skin. These treatments offer effective non-invasive options for rejuvenating the skin and addressing signs of aging. 

Medical-Grade Skincare 

They also provide the highest quality skincare products. Home care must be part of any treatment plan. Janine notes, “You visit the dentist twice yearly but brush and floss daily. Skin care is not any different.” Washing, exfoliating, toning, and retinol are a daily must, and not using medical-grade skin care diminishes the outcome of treatments by 45%.  

When it comes to maintenance, HydraFacial, micro-needling, light therapies, and various kinds of facial treatments are beneficial and relaxing.  

Start with a consultation to find what’s right for you 

Janine and the CW team always advise clients to book a consultation, as it can be overwhelming to figure out the best treatment option for you.  “Schedule a consult, sit down, and voice your concerns,” Janine encourages, “and then let our experts educate you about your options, and together you can map out a treatment that meets your goals, your budget, and your lifestyle.”
