Cape & Islands Wellness Expo Comes to Eastham!

This weekend marked the first Cape & Islands Wellness Expo to take place at this end of the Cape, ever. Several dozen health providers of everything from massage and yoga to health food and shoes that are good for your feet were on display at stands set up in the lobby of Willy’s Gym in Eastham. The mood was euphoric as practitioners shared tips and schedules with would-be clients. Workshops were held. Here was the opportunity to learn about how to avoid back pain or spend time with a Reiki master. There were lots of brochures to pick up, and even some free vegie cookies. I chatted with Dr. Lori Deveuve of Nauset Chiropractic, below left, who said 2000 to 5000 people are expected over the two days. The Cape & Islands Wellness Expo is a great place to learn new ways to stay healthy and increase vitality while having fun. Judging from turn-out this morning, the initiative will probably be renewed next year.
