On Monday, October 23, 2017, Serenity Now Massage Therapy in Cornelius, NC, joined forces with local holistic health practitioners to present a unique open house experience. Not just an educational event, this exciting evening also served as a fundraiser for Carolina Breast Friends. In support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, local Lake Norman small businesses donated a wide range of goods and services, raising over $1,500 for the Pink House, CBF’s sanctuary which serves Charlotte area breast cancer survivors by providing support, encouragement, information and assistance.

Throughout the evening, guests had the opportunity to tour Serenity Now’s beautiful studio, while learning about the premier services offered by therapists with a wide range of specialties. Guests were offered complimentary Thai foot massage, kinesiology taping, TMJ massage and cupping sessions. Practitioners were on hand to discuss holistic approaches to health, which consider the whole person as it interacts with the surrounding environment. The event was an excellent opportunity to talk with these professionals in a relaxed, informal setting.

While guests mingled, Christiane Matey, a registered dietician with Total Nutrition Technology, provided light, nutritious appetizers. Other holistic professionals included Dr. Geoff Doyle, Chiropractic Physician & Acupuncturist, Doyle Chiropractic & Acupuncture; Dr Joyce Battaglia, Chiropractic Physician, Lakeside Chiropractic; Dr. Lexi Lain, Naturopathic Physician, Summit Vitality; Dr. Lindsey Mashburn, Medical Doctor, South Lake Women’s Healthcare; Christine Sahli-Williams, Certified Holistic Health Coach, Shine Wellness; and Dr. Luis Crespo, Dentist, Holistic Dental Centers.

The Holistic Health Evening hosted by Serenity Now Massage Therapy brought the Lake Norman community together to promote wellness and to support the breast cancer survivors in our community.
