Free wellness event set for Nov. 9

There are many paths to health and wellness, but the most important one is to take responsibility for yours. Ever hear the names Hatha, Kundalini, Ashtanga or Iyengar, and wonder what in the world was being discussed?

Mystery solved: all are very different types of yoga. Some yoga styles teach through slow and gentle movements, some are intense and focus on the core, others focus on alignment and detail using props, but all aim to increase your wellness and health. Not sure which one may be right for you? Take the time to talk to an expert one on one. 

Reiki by definition is a healing technique where the practitioner channels energy into the patient to stimulate the body's natural healing processes. Reiki energy flows through and out of the healing hands of the practitioner. Most people experience deep relaxation after a treatment. Treatments after surgery decrease down-time and get you ready to return to work or play. Did you know your pet, be it dog, cat or hamster, can also enjoy Reiki benefits?

Ever feel wonderful after listening to Mozart or Bach? Or have you felt energized after listening to a march? Well, there is a distinct connection between wellness and sound. Crystal bowls create pure tones, not heard by the ear alone, but received by the heart and the body as well. Certain tones effect the bodies energy centers, and are known to have a healing effect. Disease is a result of energy blockages, which light and sound can clear. Quartz bowls, often referred to as singing bowls have not so much a sound as a vibration. Think of the old Beach Boys song "Good Vibrations" and you'll get the idea. 

Meet practitioners in these fields and more, as well as authors and other wellness partners at the Centered Wellness Open House on Nov. 9, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at Unity Spiritual Center, 23855 Detroit Road, Westlake. Centered Wellness was an inspiration of centered listening created by Mary Maynard as a more peaceful way of doing business based on collaboration instead of competition.

Come explore your path to wellness, enjoy healthy foods and meet caring wellness practitioners at this free event.
