BLACK HEALTH MATTERS - 4th Annual Health and Wellness Expo takes place this Saturday, June 20, 2015 from 9:00 am - 4:00 pm at the Brookland Baptist Banquet and Conference Center in West Columbia, S.C. The event is FREE and open to the public.
This year's event will feature sessions on the benefits of massage therapy. There's no denying the power of bodywork. Regardless of the adjectives we assign to it (pampering, rejuvenating, therapeutic) or the reasons we seek it out (a luxurious treat, stress relief, pain management), massage therapy can be a powerful ally in your healthcare regimen.
Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress related. And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. While eliminating anxiety and pressure altogether in this fast-paced world may be idealistic, massage can, without a doubt, help manage stress. This translates into:
•Enhanced sleep quality.
Furthermore, clients often report a sense of perspective and clarity after receiving a massage. The emotional balance massage therapy provides can often be just as vital and valuable as the more tangible physical benefits.
Along with health and wellness workshops, free health screenings, demonstrations and information will be the keynote presentation by Professor James Small, historian and co-star of the movie "Hidden Colors 2: The Triumph of Melanin". Make plans and bring your family and friends to attend this year's event.
