Find the full schedule and registration details here.
Here are 4 alternative therapies you should explore.
1. Feng Shui
This Chinese philosophical system claims to examine how the placement of things in your home or office affects the environment’s energy flow. Daniel Ong explains further.
2. Essential Oils
Extracted through steam distillation and cold-pressing, essential oils are more than just nice scents in a bottle. When used the right way, these oils can be useful for oral care or even home cleaning and disinfecting. Sign up for this workshop by Young Living to learn more.
