It’s the New Year! Make a resolution to become stress-free this year!
Join us for our free educational health fair in the Valley Natural Foods eating area this Saturday, January 8th from noon-3pm to learn how.
Eileen Johnson, Valley Natural Foods staff RN, has invited a team of practitioners to address alternative ways to better handle stress, relate to others and make healthy choices. We all face daily stressors in our lives, sometimes major ones. It isn’t the stressors that cause health problems, it is how we react to them. Think about how stress might be affecting your life and if you need assistance, consider coming on Saturday!
Come meet with these practitioners to get some ideas on how to deal with many different stressors in life:
Eileen Johnson, RN - will discuss Valley Natural Foods wellness products that help relieve stress. Come by to try a sample of Tusli tea!
Pamela King-Rediger - will be present to read excerpts from her touching memoir, Loving Yourself Home that tells the story of how you can go from the point of losing everything to living a happy, new life.
Joel Ronningen - a Valley Natural Foods wellness employee and owner of Ametrine Bodyworks, will be available to talk about massage and craniosacral therapy techniques. Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, relaxing method of releasing restrictions in connective tissues of the body. The bones of the skull and spine are used as handles to release the connective tissues inside.
Lois Bergman – a homeopathic practitioner, will reveal natural, safe remedies that will help strengthen your body’s general vitality, improve emotional well-being, and work to heal your body from many types of pain and stress.
Bonnie West - a licensed acupuncturist from Karuna Acupuncture, will talk about how acupuncture can be used as a pain and stress reliever to distribute energy (or “qi”) and blood to every area of the body, nourishing and protecting it.
