Muse Wellness, LLC was founded by Lyndsay Whitaker in 2021. The name was inspired by the nine Muses in Greek mythology. In ancient Greek religion and mythology, the Muses are the inspirational goddesses of literature, science, and the arts. They were considered the source of the knowledge embodied in the poetry, lyric songs, and myths that were related orally for centuries in ancient Greek culture.
