Arise hosts Wellness in the Park

Event supports the Healing Through Horses equine therapy program

Arise Chiropractic and Red Bird Acupuncture are co-hosting the annual Wellness in the Park.

The event takes place in Polson Park Friday from 3 to 6 p.m.

“It is a charity event raising money and awareness for the Healing Through Horses equine therapy program that is run by Wendy Elrick and the Women’s Transition House,” said  Dr. Elliot Lysyk, with Arise Chiropractic Wellness Clinic.

“It focuses on integration and trauma recovery for women and children in Vernon.”

The event raised $1,500 last year and the goal is to surpass that target this year.

“There will be a large silent auction, mini treatments by donation from Arise Massage, Red Bird Acupuncture and Vernon Reflexology, spine and posture check-ups by our chiropractors,” sad Lysyk.

“There will also be a free Arise Yoga class, a free Hayden Fitness pilates class/post natal fitness, and information available.”
