OUR MOST POPULAR PROGRAM:

Take Five! Stress Relief Break: Our most popular stress break. Help participants reduce tension by enjoying a 5-minute pressure point massage while learning more about their health. Using the latest state-of-the-art technology (where available) we conduct a scan of the master nerve system and provide the results to the participants on the spot. We can answer their health related questions and offer suggestions to increase their performance at home and on the job! A great way to recognize your hard-working team or the perfect addition to your next meeting or reward after a busy fund-raiser, membership drive or community project!

OF SPECIAL INTEREST TO BUSINESSES:

Work Health, Work Safe: As a benefit to new employees and an additional safeguard to ensuring safe and healthy work practices we can provide this 30 minute training as a one-time training event or a monthly or quarterly training to all new employees based on your needs. Rotate existing employees into the meetings and everyone benefits by promoting safe and healthy habits on the job and at home. Can also be customized to a specific group where safety and health issues are a concern due to the physical demands of their job.

Desk-ercise: Get Fit While you Sit: The computer age has found us spending more and more time in front of our keyboards. Prolonged postures and repetitive movements lead to a variety of symptoms such as eye-strain and headaches, shoulder pain and carpel tunnel syndrome, back pain and sciatica, just to name a few. You don't need to work in pain! By following these common-sense strategies you can relieve your pain and safeguard your health for years to come. (This workshop can be adapted to a general ergonomics session for nearly any position at your workplace. Ask us for more details).

GENERAL INTEREST:

Through a Parent's Eyes: As parents you want what's best for your children. You teach them to look both ways before crossing the street. Warn them about talking to strangers. Anything that will allow them to live a long, happy and productive life becomes your top priority. But have you ever really thought about what the simplest actions and decisions that you make on a daily basis can mean for your child's health, both now and far into the future? From nutrition to exercise, ADHD to obesity, immunity to vaccinations, we'll break it all down and take a look at what it means to grow up healthy...through a parent's eyes.

W.O.W.: Workshop on Wellness: Do you ever wonder if you are truly realizing your full life potential? This seven-element workshop focuses on the importance of a balanced approach to life. Achieving a balance in life is powerful. It allows us to perform at our best in all aspects of our life and leads to greater levels of happiness and performance. Attendees learn about the seven key-life areas (physical, mental, spiritual, social, family, career and financial) and how to balance each area for true happiness, health and wellness. This session can be delivered as a 2-hour workshop or divided into 30-minute sessions for each key-life area. A truly inspiring health and wellness series!

Power Nutrition: Low carb, low fat. The information on what constitutes a proper diet is vast and conflicting. When it comes to nutrition one thing is true-variety is the spice of life. Separate the facts from the fads and learn the truth about nutrition and the impact proper nutrition can have on our energy levels and overall health and wellness.

Get a Grip on Stress: While it's true that stress is a result of change, one common misconception is that stress is always a result of a negative shift in our environment. Not only can stress result from positive occurrences in our lives but both positive and negative stress affect our overall health in a variety of ways. Stress is all around us. Learn tips to managing stress and minimize its negative affects on the body.
