Georgian Court University will host its first Wellness Expo Saturday, May 12 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the school’s historic main campus in Lakewood. The event is free and open to the public.
From Native American healing traditions to natural techniques intended to help people “de-stress, rebalance, and re-energize,” the expo features a full day of presentations, including yoga classes for adults and youngsters, lessons for healthy living, hand massage demonstrations, tips on aging, boot camp training and more. A toy drive to benefit Specialized Children’s Hospital in Toms River is also planned.
Attendees at the expo will hear from more than 50 exhibitors and guest speakers. Confirmed guests include wellness experts in acupuncture, chiropractic, massage therapy, weight loss, organic foods, finance and many other fields. The event includes giveaways, and participants may be eligible to win free massages, distance healing sessions, gift certificates, jewelry, gym memberships, and yoga studio memberships.
“It really is for all ages to explore the various dimensions of wellness,” says Sachiko Komagata, Ph.D., director of GCU’s holistic health graduate program. Graduate student Tracey Saliski—who earned a B.S. in exercise science from Georgian Court in 2010 and will soon graduate with a master’s degree in holistic health studies—worked closely with Dr. Komagata to plan the event.
“I saw bringing health-conscious people to the Georgian Court University campus, a place where one can focus on mind, body, and spirit, as a perfect fit for the expo,” says Ms. Saliski, who also serves as a graduate assistant for campus wellness. “We will have a wide variety of talent and experience at the event, and I’m sure there will be something for everyone.”
