On Tuesday, October 4th, LocalWellnessList.org will be hosting #EatMoveRelax, a Wellness Conference on the beautiful campus of Bellwether Church in Jackson. Doors open at noon with yoga on the lawn, riveting presentations, panel discussions and live demonstrations. Foote says, “We are introducing about 6-8 lifestyle practitioners in the Jackson area, how they practice and how they can help you. Speakers will include renowned doctors, nurses, anxiety specialists and yoga therapists.” As guests enjoy fresh fruits and water, they can enter to win fabulous prizes, including over a thousand dollars in spa treatments, a Whole Foods gift card, spa products and much more!
Last year, Foote started LocalWellnessList.org, a directory of health and wellness practitioners of Mississippi. She says, “These people take care of you on a holistic basis. They are interested in you as a whole person – mind, body and soul. If you have a pain somewhere and can’t find the origin, you might have had a traumatic episode at some point and this is how your body is expressing it. When you address the whole person, that’s the mind/body connection.”
Foote adds, “People don’t know how to take care of themselves. Mississippi is the sickest state in the nation. We have numerous tools to take care of ourselves, but we don’t understand how to use them! Yoga, for example, is a wonderful tool. It helps with arthritis, pain, flexibility, body movement and balance. Many people are afraid it is a religion; but actually, it is am important part of the mind and body connection.”
All of the things offered at #EatMoveRelax work safely in conjunction with traditional medicine. This event is open to the general public at the cost of $15 per person. For more information about the conference agenda, tickets, or to learn more about the speakers, visit www.EatMoveRelax.com
