SPRINGFIELD – The staff at Better Life Whole Foods and practitioners of The Integrative Health Group will be offering a sampling of healing for the body, mind and spirit on Dec. 1.
“We offer a very supportive environment and with this event we are saying thank you to the community for supporting us throughout the year,” Lisa Wilson, IET-MI, RMT, during a recent interview with Reminder Publications, said.
Wilson is owner of Angelic Stones and a member of The Integrative Health Group. She is a Master Crystal Healer/Teacher, Usui Reiki Master Teacher, and an Integrated Energy Therapy Master Instructor.
“Expect a day of healing,” she said, adding the timing is perfect before the hustle and bustle of the holiday season gets underway.
From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., area residents will learn simple techniques to keep the holiday season stress free and healthy.
The free event begins at 10 a.m. with registration, coffee, and a meet and greet with the practitioners and staff of Better Life Whole Foods.
On a first-come, first-serve basis, participants will be able to enjoy free angelic healing empowerment sessions with Wilson and Rosemary Ryan, IET-MI, RMT, owner of Angelic Heart. In addition, complimentary services will include therapeutic touch by Linda White, QTTP/CHt, owner of Healthy Changes, and 10-minute chair massages by Alexandra Moriarty, LMT, owner of Celestial Bodies Therapeutic Massage. Amethyst BioMat treatments and mini facial makeovers will also be provided.
Dr. Jus Crea Giammarino, ND, will present a lecture titled “Staying Healthier and Stress Free” at approximately 11 a.m. Giammarino practices Naturopathic Medicine at The Integrative Health Group. She has taught nutrition at Springfield College and was a primary care physician in Brattleboro, Vt.
Cooking demonstrations and a light lunch will also be featured, and a lecture titled “Everyday Healthy Foods” will be presented.
Following lunch, Stan Baker, LAC, will offer Tai Chi sessions, and Greg Spinelli of Plant Fusion will discuss protein plant powder.
Free gift bags and a raffle will round out the day. A host of healthy gift ideas will be featured.
“Give the gift of health this holiday season – to yourself and others,” Wilson said.
