More about the Season of Wellness:
The season of wellness is a time of celebrating wellness for all of the citizens of our region with an emphasis on alternative and holistic modalities through special events including workshops, socials, networking events, festivals and an awards event. The Season of Wellness Events will bring alternative health practitioners and people seeking wellness together. The health of any community is directly proportional to the health of each individual citizen. If we make finding healthcare practitioners more accessible, then we provide an avenue to improving the health of our friends, family, and community.
The Season of Wellness seeks to create an environment supporting wellness and sustainability, also working in conjunction with trainers, farmers, and environmentalists as well as artisans, musicians, authors and business professionals who can inspire the populace to connect to one another in a spirit of cooperation. "As a organization that brings communities together, we are delighted to present the Season of Wellness ," says longtime Chiropractor and HNA supporter, Bonnie May, "We look forward to doing all that we can to bring health in all of its forms to our region." The Season of Wellness Launch will also give attendees the chance to find out about the other season of wellness events including the Champions of Wellness event in early 2017.
