Wellness Day

Health is big news this summer. High-profile news releases

have questioned health advice that considered gospel for years —

or decades. Is hormone replacement safe? Has carbo loading been a

mistake? Experts fill the air with opinions. There is controversy

on any number of issues, but agreement on one; most of us need to

get serious about staying well.

Help for those seeking to follow that advice is available on Saturday,

August 3, from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at a Wellness Fair at the MarketFair

shopping center. Services provided have suggested donations with proceeds

going to the Make a Wish Foundation. Call 609-683-3996.

Ari Cohn, a chiropractor and an organizer of the event, says

what is commonly known as "healthcare" is not really health

care. Most people only seek out the services of healthcare providers

when they are sick. Healthcare is actually made up of two distinct

categories, sickness care and wellness care. Sickness care includes

any modality designed to fix, cure, relieve or even prevent health

problems. Wellness care is any avenue designed to improve how the

body is working regardless of condition or symptoms.

Services to be showcased include: acupuncture (Suzette Gore),

aromatherapy (Connie Cox), biofeedback (Pedra Garnet),

chiropractic (Ari Cohn DC), Pilates (Anthony Rabara),

magnetic therapy (Virginia Prescott), martial arts (Princeton

Academy of Martial Arts), massage (Jason Sklar), meditation

(Amy Glenn), nutrition (Maryellen Murray ND), reiki (Danauta

Macow), reflexology (Dean Dobry), and yoga (Princeton

Center for Yoga and Health).
