The final installment in our free, winter-long Wellness Series takes place on Thursday, March 17th at 6pm. Presentations by alternative and holistic healthcare practitioners from our community are designed to empower and educate the medical professionals, healers and helpers in our community so that our community thrives as a whole.
How Art, Music and Creativity Contribute to Health and Vitality
In a culture of medicine that is obsessed with health and illness revolving around what we put into our mouths– food, drugs, vitamins, herbs, etc, we sometimes lose sight of the bigger picture. In this presentation, learn how including the arts and creativity as a primary part of our lives impacts our health. Discover how creativity contributes to an endocrine system and nervous system that not only improves mood and sense of well-being, but also helps to create the physiologic circumstances consistent with health and vitality. As it turns out art, music and creativity may even help prevent and treat existing illness. Join musician, writer, and doctor Joshua Phillips during this presentation at Mother’s Cafe on Galveston, Thursday March 17th at 6pm.

Life Vessel: The benefits of Light, Sound and Vibration therapy
In addition to Dr. Phillips’ presentation, we’ll also be joined by Craig and Tracy Jones with Amolite. Hear about the benefits of Light, Sound and Vibration therapy to help restore and balance the body.
Last year, Tracy was experiencing some health issues and was encouraged by her aunt to go to Santa Rosa and try a life changing device called the Life Vessel. After going down for a series of sessions, she felt peace that she hadn’t experienced before. For her it was very much like an induced meditation. In 2016, after hearing all the wonderful stories of healing that are coming from re-balancing the body with this wonderful device, Craig and Tracy decided to bring the Life Vessel to Bend. They are very excited about the prospect of helping people with their journey to optimum health.
Thursday, March 17th from 6-8pm at the Mother’s Westside Cafe, 1255 NW Galveston Avenue.
