Join Michelle Greenwell, at our Wellness Booth, as she shares a very special look at the spine & movement for energy & vitality. Using her special card deck, co-created with Tanya Levy: Affirmations for the Body & BioField, she will help you to understand where tension is being held, movement is restricted & how the rest of the body systems are affected. Using interactive art, she will be sharing the emotional & intentional living aspects of the spine that can transform how you move and how you think about living well. Stop by the booth & have a one-on-one discussion with Michelle about your personal wellness goals & how understanding the spine can help you achieve those goals.

Bring a water bottle with you to support the changes!
