MUSC Employee Wellness will be sponsoring a series of events to increase awareness of complementary and alternative medicine and therapies in November.
Topics covered in lunch and learn sessions and Wellness Wednesdays include meditation, hypnosis, nutritional therapy, and healing touch. The first Holistic Wellness Fair will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Nov. 29 in the Horseshoe. The fair will provide an opportunity to interact with businesses and practitioners who offer natural approaches to health and specialize in complementary health and wellness disciplines.
Holistic wellness can be defined as healing resources that encompasses all health systems, modalities and practices and their accompanying theories and beliefs. Wellness is the condition of being in optimum health, not just the absence of disease or illness. It is a holistic blend of physical, mental, and spiritual well-being, the result of lifestyle decisions and involved personal responsibility. For information or to participate in the fair, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
