Our Story

As a graduate of Mackinaw City Schools, owner Tae never imagined putting roots in the straits area as a kid. After years of traveling different parts of the world - Taelar grew a deeper appreciation for the freshwater lakes and the Straits of Mackinac - this location is a beautiful and powerful place for transformation.

Starting out of a local salon - Strait to the Roots has slowly grown into something greater than we ever imagined. With a wellness center in Mackinaw City feeling like nothing but a dream, Tae continued to work on getting certified and qualified in different things that inspired growth, health, and healing in herself and our community. We truly believe that when you heal yourself, you heal the world - thank you Mark Nepo.

Our mission is to create a space where everyone is welcome to celebrate our health and our healing with support from each other and our community.


No matter your race, gender, sexuality, political views, we welcome you - because when we close our eyes and breathe into our heart and our truth - we are all one.
