Meet Health & Wellness Oriented Professionals in your community.
Hear Theresa Woodsong speak on: Promoting Health for Fat People. A different perspective—a new movement. It’s become commonly accepted that stress disrupts our metabolisms and contributes to weight gain, yet most health care professionals persist in supporting the mind set that fat people must lose weight to have better health and more happiness. The truth is, the prevailing approach to weight management is resoundingly unhealthy. Theresa will share science provided by non-biased studies, and help you connect the dots to see how a weight-centric approach to health and happiness can backfire and create more problems than it solves. Discover a more sane, balanced, and humane approach to supporting health and happiness for your clients, friends, and loved ones ------------ Theresa Woodsong, Body Image Mentor and Blue Belt NiaÔInstructor, helps her clients have better health and more happiness—NOW, rather than putting it off until they’ve lost weight. Theresa developed Living Light In Your Body™ to help her clients move beyond the hype of mass media and discover an approach to health and happiness that is sustainable and comfortable for them as individuals.
