Explore the Mind-Body Connection
Offered in our centers for the first time, Reiki is a healing practice that originated in Japan and is based on the idea that there is a universal energy that supports the body's innate healing abilities. Practitioners seek to access this energy, allowing it to flow to the body and facilitate healing. Reiki can reduce stress, lower blood pressure, reduce or eliminate pain as well as increase wellness of your body, mind and spirit. This course will focus on the practice of self-care and participants will leave with a Level I certificate. Registration begins September 12th. All courses are offered from 9:15 am - 4:45 pm.

Weekend Diet Survival Guide
Have you ever avoided your Monday morning weigh-in because you blew your diet over the weekend? Well, you're not alone. Most people, even those who are not dieting, tend to eat more on weekends than they do during the week.
In a study published in the journal, Obesity, researchers at Washington University in St. Louis followed 48 men and women for a year to determine how weekend eating affected their diets. Almost all of the participants, ranging from healthy weight to nearly obese, lost weight during the week and gained it back on the weekends. Their physical activity didn't change much; the weight increase was caused by a higher calorie intake. Weekend overeating is so powerful that it could lead the average person to gain 9 pounds over the course of a year.
Next month we will highlight a few simple steps you can follow to avoid this pitfall.
