Health & Wellness



What is Wellness? 

Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life. 

“A conscious, self-directed and evolving process of achieving full potential.” 

--The National Wellness Institute 


Wellness is more than being free from illness; it is a dynamic process of change and growth.
