Wellness Fair offers free activities and healthful exhibits


As the semester comes to an end, it is common for students and faculty to be faced with extra pressures. What better way to release some stress, than by going to the Wellness Fair?

The Wellness Fair is on Wednesday, April 11, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the CUB Multi-Purpose Room.
The Wellness Fair is sponsored by Shippensburg University’s Human Resources Office and the University Counseling Center.

This year, much like the others before, the fair will include fun, free, relaxing activities such as; massages, acupuncture and Reiki mini-sessions, which is a spiritual practice commonly called palm healing.

There will also be nutritional counseling, bone density tests, live-well blood screenings and health and fitness assessments.

All this, plus demonstrations, refreshments, informational handouts, giveaways and door prizes.
However, if you do not have time to participate in the activities, just stop by and talk with one of the 40-plus exhibitors.

The exhibits include information on skin care, diabetes, nutrition, yoga, physical therapy, wound care, vision care, chiropractics, hypnotherapy, women’s health, domestic violence, animal assisted therapy and much more.

The Wellness Fair has something for everyone, along with a lot of useful information about many different aspects of wellness.

Do not wait to sign up for a mini-session appointment. Last year filled up fairly quick so scheduling in advance is encouraged.

To make an appointment prior to the event contact Maryrose Wilson at mwilson@ship.edu. Any remaining sessions can be scheduled on a walk-in basis at the information table at the wellness fair. Be sure to check your email for more details closer to the event.
