What we're about

This group is intended to facilitate the public and private interaction of providers, and others interested in Alternative Wellness Therapies. The intention is for this group to be an aid for practitioners to network, for clients to find providers, and for providers to find clients. And for everyone to just interact, discuss, learn, and grow...

What is “Alternative Wellness”??

We're going to be pretty liberal in this definition....but basically, “Alternative Wellness" is any therapy or practice that aids in health, healing or well-being that is not what would be considered “Western Medicine”. This may include, but is certainly not limited to, Massage/Bodywork, Reiki/Energy Work, Acupuncture, Yoga/Meditation, Chiropractic/Rolfing, Nutrition/Herbal, Sound/Vibration, and anything else that doesn't fit in typical western medicine philosophy.

Since the endeavor is just starting, we're not sure exactly how or where it will go. The primary intention is to network practitioners for trade opportunities and mutual support, and to connect providers and clients together. We may have Meetups that are just open mingle coffee/happy hours. We may have Meetups that are seminars and demonstrations or "fairs". Both presented by our members, and outsiders presenting to the group. We may do meetups just for practitioners to network, or for everyone to attend. Some events may cost money. Many won't. (Charging money for event allows us to pay for facilities, presenters, etc and provide better events. But, there will never be a dues fee to just be a member.) It's also the intention to eventually have a robust website in parallel (currently under development and coming soon) with things such as Forums, Chat areas, Practitioner Profiles, Bulletin Board, Info database, etc.
We're not quite sure what's going to happen. That depends on YOU, and your participation. The more you participate, the more we'll offer!

Meet and Greet - Bi-Monthly Social.

The Hangar

Come join us for our new bi-monthly coffee/tea social meetups! Come on out to meet people and make new friends around the common theme of Alternative Wellness. It's intended to be sort of a blend between "business networking" and "social gathering" (leaning a little more toward social gathering). This is an excellent opportunity for clients and practitioners to find each other, for people to meet and make friends, and for everyone to chat about therapies, interests, news, etc. in a casual, relaxed atmosphere. This new weekly Meetup will occur every other Sunday at the same time. (though the venue will change) So, if you can't make this one, keep it in your brain for the coming ones. Sunday's at 1pm. Unless otherwise cancelled, there will always be at least the host there. So even last minute, drop on by.
