About Wellness Plus
Wellness Plus is a full spectrum Natural Living Community of natural healing professionals and individuals who are serious about all parts of an all-natural lifestyle. We are the only one of this kind on the East Coast. We provide a full education, support and holistic healings right in our beautiful 1300 sq ft center, as well as “lectures on the road” and health fairs for corporations, government agencies, civic groups and doctor’s offices. The year 2019 is our 23rd year promoting natural healing & health.
Our mission is to empower individuals to take control of their health, with emphasis on prevention, by providing up-to-date information and support – from whole food nutrition to holistic healings.
We believe in whole food. As Hippocrates stated, “food should be your medicine and the medicine should be food, and to be a medicine, first, it has to do no harm.”
Wellness Plus is 100% supported by member’s dues and by their purchases in our “Store of Mother Earth.” We have not, do not and will not accept any donations from drug or food manufacturers even though we operate on a not-for-profit basis. Therefore, you can trust the information we provide because we are a totally independent organization.
For individuals and families, we provide weekly classes, seminars, workshops and cooking demonstrations. We also provide various holistic healings (see member’s benefit list) at discount prices. We have personal and group training programs in our center, as well as house call services. We also carry unusual and hard to find natural foods and supplies in our store.
For natural healing practitioners, we have referral services, free corporate health fair booths to promote your business, treatment room rent starting at $200/month for one day per week, matching funds for advertising and more. Ask about our “Partner in Health” program.
January’s Feature Presentations at Wellness Plus
Monday, January 13th at 6:30 – “The Science Behind Essential Oils” — We have been enjoying the essential oils for many years. But have you wondered about how they are made, what is in them and how they work? We will learn all of this, plus other useful information like how do high quality and low-quality oils differ, how do we know which oils are good enough for our health conditions, and why there are so many different single oils and blends. Presented by Dr. Chuck Powley, who has studied and analyzed natural products for many years.
Monday, January 20 at 6:30 pm “Self-Care for the New Year” —- No matter what challenges you are facing – whether structural or organic, chronic or acute – there are always things you can do to help your body heal itself. And even better, there are ways to stay healthy by responding right away in easy effortless ways to small aches and stiffness when they first occur. Whenever you open and relax any area that is complaining, everything in the area starts to calm down and work better. Starting with a class member who wants help with an issue they are currently experiencing, we will cover and practice a variety of simple and comfortable relaxer-sighs to address that part of the body which will help all of us feel better right away.
Monday, January 27 at 6:30 Support Group Meeting “Weight Loss and a Whole Food Plant Based Diet” — This is a FREE class open to all that are interested in a discussion on how what you eat, especially whole natural foods without animal products, processed foods, sugar or added oil can help you feel good and lose weight.
