We have a good time at these classes and cover a wide range of natural wellness topics. Vicki's class promises to be very informative as she gives an overview of homeopathy and field control therapy, two holistic health tools that can cleanse the body on a cellular level. I've been a very satisfied client of Vicki's for field control therapy, and find it a very powerful yet gentle healing technique.
Below is the entire fall schedule of Optimal Wellness classes. Classes meet Wednesday evenings (except one on the Monday before Thanksgiving) and run from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. with informal discussion to follow. They're held in the Jutila Center's Room 324, at 200 Michigan Street in Hancock, MI. Cost is $10 per person at the door. For more information call 487-7451 or email NorthCoastHolistics@gmail.com. Hope to see you there!
