Well Nest Chattanooga Offers “Elements of Healing” Workshop
Therapist Dr. Rick Pimental-Habib and healer Stephen Cavitt will facilitate
Celebrating its third year of offering wellness services, Well Nest Chattanooga presents a new series of four monthly workshops, beginning January 28, each incorporating an element of nature: Earth, Water, Air and Fire.
Participants will learn breathing exercises combined with gentle movement from Chinese wellness principles, as well as healing imagery and meditation drawn from native cultures.
“We’ll also create a healing circle to support the release of old patterns and attract positive energy for our minds, bodies, and spirits,” said Dr. Rick Pimental-Habib, well-known local therapist and director of Well Nest.
