Join us on Thursday December 9th for a relaxing dinner and a discussion of complementary and alternative medicine with an extended focus on acupressure and acupuncture and an interactive taichi workshop.
The semi-annual PROMISE Reflections series on health and wellness provides insights into taking care of your health proactively. This fall's Reflections will introduce you to the benefits of complementary and alternative medicine in an overview talk given by Dr. Niya Werts, who teaches at Towson University in the Department of Health Science.* Dr. Werts will also speak about acupressure. Ms. Madhuri Shenker will provide an in depth explanation of the two types of acupuncture she practices: traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and five elements. Dr. Sean Vasaitis will lead the interactive taichi workshop during which you will have the opportunity to experience some of the movements and stances yourselves.
Take a break from your work and studies and come meet PROMISE Peer Mentors and members from across UMB, UMBC, and UMCP. Bring your friends and family. Dinner will be served. Wear comfortable clothing and shoes for movement.
