On January 21, 2016, our chapter's 7th anniversary, we learned about holistic ways to stave off the winter blues this year!
We had a great panel of speakers to address a variety of modalities:
- Jan Watkins, MSW shared how Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) can clear emotional blockages and lighten your load
We also had team members from Neck Back & Beyond, a healing center in Fairfax. Dr. Allan Tomson, D.C. addressed how bodywork, including chiropractic and craniosacral therapy and even gentle stretching, can help with mood and resilience.
Nutritional Therapist Babette Lamarre talked about the role of food on mood and also addressws some helpful supplements.
Margeuritte McGee, R.N. DiHom, LAc discussed acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine and the role of stress on mood.
We also had mini sessions of foot reflexology with Brigitte Wiss, lymphatic drainage with Marianne Scippa, and polarity therapy with Janice Johnson.
Thank you to all our speakers and to everyone who came out before the storm hit! It was a great night and a wonderful way to celebrate seven years of our chapter!
Here are four of the co-leaders who have been there since the beginning: Rajae, Jessica, Leigha and Mary, joined by Dr. Tomson and Margeuritte McGee.
