Artist Wellness is a simple concept: employ proven programs for health and balance that are customized just for you. It’s called Bio-Individuality and it says that while there are proven strategies out there, each of us is unique and will be most successful if those programs and strategies are part of an overall plan built around our individual needs and challenges. And at Tipping Point, our specialty is helping you design that plan, launch it across all aspects of your life and make the changes you need to be successful working that plan long-term. Because when you’re healthy, you have more time, energy and focus and that means that you can be more creative and more productive in all aspects of your career and your personal life. So you aren’t just building a more successful career. You’re creating a happier, more fulfilling life.
Lanny West has worked in music and entertainment for over 30 years. Over that time, he gained more and more interest in nutrition and holistic health matters, putting it into practice in his own life. It didn’t take long to realize what a challenge it is to get healthy and stay healthy in the music world whether you’re on the road, in the studio or just hanging out with musicians. It was that insight that inspired Tipping Point Artist Wellness. It’s a unique solution to a unique problem: staying healthy and balanced in a business that lends itself to midnight drive-through meals, open bar tabs and sleeping at 70 mph.
And that’s where Lanny’s singular background comes into play. By combining his training as an Integrative Wellness Coach from The Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) with his experience in the music industry, he not only knows what you should be doing, but can help you navigate the realities of putting that plan into practice under less-than-ideal circumstances. And that experience helps him do the part that he likes best: helping you get healthy so you can focus your time and energy on being creative and productive with your art.
"The knowledge, experience, dedication, and passion Lanny West brings to Wellness is truly a rare find! Those fortunate enough to work with him will certainly benefit from his gift!"

When he decided to pursue his personal passion for wellness and his interest in helping people, everything in his research pointed to one place: The Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) in New York. With over 40,000 worldwide graduates since it's inception 20 years ago, a staff full of the top experts from Ivy League schools and the best of the best, it was the missing piece in Lanny’s dream of of launching this business aimed at helping artists and musicians. There, he initially spent a full year of intensive classes learning from faculty as well as visiting teachers like Deepak Chopra and Andrew Weil, MD. Since finishing his initial certification, he continues to take more classes to expand his expertise and experience and stay up on the latest tools and techniques to help his clients.
