Is Your Work Straining Your Body? 

Workplace injuries are becoming an increasing health risk for many people. Spending hours at the desk, overworking joints & ligaments, poor posture and infrequent breaks add to the strain. Many people suffer from headaches, eye strain, carpal tunnel, tendonitis or other concerns that go undiagnosed. Many of these concerns can be prevented with naturopathic tools such as self-care exercises, balanced diet, massage, acupuncture and natural anti-inflammatories. In this seminar you will learn to identify sources of strain in your body and take home tips for your health.

Ayurveda & Skin Care for Summer

Your skin is the largest organ in the body and helps protect you from the outside. When there are imbalances in the body, they can show up in the skin and cause concerns such as acne, hives, redness, dryness and irritation. Due to increased heat and humidity in the summer, the skin is more prone to imbalances at this time. Whether you struggle with skin issues or want to keep your skin fresh and glowing throughout the summer, you can join this talk to learn about:
