Series of courses on stress reduction planned for April and March

WELLINGTON, PEI – Feb. 5, 2013 – Following an extremely popular lunch-and-learn held last December, holistic health practitioner Denise Arsenault will deliver a series of three courses, each lasting three hours, on stress prevention and reduction in Wellington March 11 and 25 and April 8. Sessions will take place from 6-9 p.m. in empty office space at the Rural Action Centre in Wellington.

“Participants in these interactive sessions will learn breathing, relaxation, energy medicine and emotional freedom techniques,” explains the teacher. “I’ll show them various Yoga poses as well as stress-releasing tips. We’ll also do guided meditations.”

Following the courses, participants will be able to return home with a variety of stress management tools that they’ll be able to practice daily or whenever needed to get clarity, focus and peace in their life, she adds.

Participants are asked to bring a yoga mat or blanket, a pillow or cushion, indoor footwear or slippers, a note pad and a USB key.

“Those who attended the lunch-and-learn session that Denise delivered back on Dec. 4 were so pleased with what they learned during that hour that they wanted to know immediately when the next session would be held,” says Raymond J. Arsenault, coordinator of the Acadian and Francophone Chamber of Commerce of PEI, the organization collaborating with the Rural Action Centre to organise these sessions. “So finally, here we are with a full series of courses.”

Denise Arsenault practices her trade at her Health Within Holistic Centre in Charlottetown as well as at the Evangeline Community Health Centre in Wellington. She is a Reiki master and teacher as well as a life coach specializing in several alternative healing modalities, such as Reiki, allergy antidote, Access bars, electromagnetic field balancing, emotion codes, essential oils, crystals and many more.

The registration fee for the three full courses (a total of nine hours) is $75 plus GST, payable on the first night of the course, in cash, by cheque addressed to the Health Within Holistic Centre or by credit card. The amount can also be prepaid by credit card by contacting the centre by phone. Participation in these sessions will give people the opportunity to participate in a personalized session at a reduced price if they so desire.
