Summit aims to empower

A Self-Empowerment Summit takes place Saturday at the Okanagan Valley College of Massage Therapy.

A trio of Vernon women, each with their own field of expertise in health, is teaming up to give local residents a chance to acces their own inner healing powers.

A Self-Empowerment Summit takes place Saturday from 10 to 11:30 a.m. at the Okanagan Valley College of Massage Therapy.

A nutritionist, massage therapist and personal trainer will each present topics aimed at offering participants better health.

“If this summit is as successful as online summits are, we are planning to do this on a monthly basis,” said Johane Andrews, a functional diagnostic nutrition practitioner, researcher, personal trainer and owner of Trim ‘n Fit Personal Training.

“The beauty of this arrangement is that three local business share their knowledge with attendees at a nominal fee, and this money is returned back to our community, to those in most need.”

Andrews will be speaking on Biohacking: Wellness Through Technology.

“What if you could hack your body’s messages, and once you have this knowledge, you could follow through accordingly?” said Andrews, noting that cell phones, heart rate monitors, and other simple gadgets can do just that.

“Although still in its infancy, biohacking has the power to transform our ability to monitor our bodies’ overall state, allowing us day-to-day to improve in areas such as sleep, heart rate variability, and stress management. With these tools, you are finally in the driver’s seat of your own body.”

Joining Andrews will be Daina Bull, a registered nutritional consultant practitioner and owner of Pure Wellness Consulting and Anna’s Vitamins Plus.

She will address Supplements: For Health and Weight Loss.

“What is the one factor standing between you and your health goal? I have the answer,” said Bull.

“Once you address this one factor you will lose weight, have fewer digestive problems, a stronger immune system, and even a better mood.”

Registered massage therapist Robynne Kingswood will be presenting Massage: Hydrotherapy for Aches and Pains.

“You hurt, so you reach for the ice or should it be the heating pack? We will discuss cardinal rules of hydrotherapy application for muscle, circulation and nerves,” said Kingswood, OVCMT faculty member, author and researcher.

“Did you know both hot and cold together can more rapidly control a headache than just one or the other?” said Kingswood, who will share tips and tricks to working with your your body to get results faster. “Where to put them, that’s the magic!”

The summit is $25 to attend. To register, call Anna’s Vitamins Plus at 250-260-1147 or e-mail info@trimnfit.ca
