Teens Focus Of Weekend Health Fair



One-minute, self-massage is something individuals can do to relieve tension at work or elsewhere. Breathing deeply and massaging between the metacarpal bones of the wrist and hand or the extensors of the arm can help alleviate stress caused by typing at the computer.

This Saturday, at the free Self-Care and Health Fair for Teens and Adults, health care professionals and others will give workshops and answer questions about diet, exercise and other concerns.

The fair will be held from 9 a.m. to noon at the Payson United Methodist Church, with a light brunch served from 9 to 11 a.m.

The fair is sponsored by United Methodist Women (UMW) and Health Ministry Committee of Payson United Methodist Church.

Workshops, health screenings, exhibitors and a light, healthy brunch are on the schedule of activities.

"Doctor Alan Michels is going to talk about men's health --basic health screenings for men," organizer Judy Spivey said.

Teens and adults can take advantage of two different low-impact, movement therapies with yoga instructor Juliet Wing and Chi-Gong instructor Penny Navis-Schmidt.

Other workshops include "Diabetic Health" given by Alice Stephenson, a certified diabetic educator, "Holistic Chiropractic Care" with Dr. Christina Keszler; "Nutrition, Wellness and You" with Julie Bolt; and "One-Minute Self-Massages for Relaxation" with Judy Spivey.
