Have you ever wondered whether acupuncture, chiropractic or reiki would help you but you weren’t sure what they involved?  A chance to find out more about these and other therapies is coming up this fall.

The 1st Annual Wellness Forum will introduce  the expertise of 12 of the top local complimentary healthcare practitioners in Centre County. They will be sharing their knowledge about nutrition, chiropractic, fitness, reiki, aromatherapy, yoga, meditation, massage and various types of energy work.  Sessions will include demonstrations so that participants can get a sense for the various therapies.

In addition to the practitioners, health and natural living related vendors will be showcasing their many services. Attendees will be able to sample healthy foods, including meals and snacks, and enjoy a day of fun and learning.

There will be raffle tickets available for purchase to win a number of wonderful prizes that were donated by our practitioners! Some of those prizes include a clean living cleaning basket, grass-fed beef, aluminum-free deodorant, chakra blend oils, several gift certificates for massage and many more!!

The forum will be held at the Friends School in State College on Saturday, October 15, 2016,  from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Tickets are $10 per person.

The event was organized by BeWell’s very own Angie Redmond, NC. As nutritionists and healthcare practitioners, we strive to help our clients achieve optimal health and sustain the best quality of life. Whether that’s through nutrition or other practices, we are invested in helping our community be healthy.

We chatted with some of the other participants at the forum to help readers get a sense of each practice’s individual area of expertise.

Nutrition

Holistic nutrition is a powerful tool to help the body restore equilibrium. We are, after all, what we eat!  Functional testing via  blood, urine and saliva  is like an interview with the body, to learn “inside information” like what’s missing ( vitamins, minerals, fatty acids or amino acids) or what shouldn’t be there (such as hidden infections or food allergies) as well as data about metabolism, etc…  Creating nutrition programs
