Sandpoint Is a Holistic Town

We all know Sandpoint is an art town and a green town. Now it is developing a reputation for being a holistic town. We are in the lead of a national trend that a recent article in the Washington Post speaks about: “More than one-third of adults and nearly 12 percent of children in the United States use alternatives to traditional medicine, according to a large federal survey released today….”

Sandpoint Wellness Council is the POAC of our holistic town

We live in Sandpoint because of the quality of life supported by these organizations:

art – Panida Theater and POAC

progressive education – Wardolf School and Garden Company

environmental protection – Rock Creek Alliance Lake Pend Oreille Waterkeeper

sustainable living – Sandpoint Transition Initiative and Farmer’s Market

With the growing number of massage therapists, acupuncturists, chiropractors, physical therapists, naturopaths, homeopaths, energy medicine practitioners, biofeedback providers, yoga studios, and Rolfers in Sandpoint, we are recognizing the increasing value of complementary health care practices. Our community now is choosing to utilize these therapies to support their wellness. People are seeking out healthcare providers that support them in getting or staying well.

Who is the Sandpoint Wellness Council

A group of leading holistic practitioners formed the Sandpoint Wellness Council (SWC) to educate the community about wellness. SWC in its third year of publishing articles in local papers, interviews on the radio, and over 100 blog posts is looking for even greater community involvement. The growing frustration about our healthcare system is moving more of us to become more responsible for our health. Wellness and holistic therapies are now the personal healthcare system of choice for many.

For those new to holistic health or those wanting to learn more, please look for our articles in the Daily Bee, the River Journal, and our 12:10PM second Tuesday of the month show on  KSPT – 1400 AM.

Does your site have a contact page? I’m having trouble
locating it but, I’d like to send you an e-mail.
I’ve got some recommendations for your blog you might be interested in hearing.
Either way, great blog and I look forward to seeing it expand over time.
