Celebrating Women in Health & Wellness

Wednesday, September 06, 2017 6:30 PM
The Home BKK



With the rise in popularity of the fitness industry, the ongoing dialogue on alternative medicines and increased interest in balance and mindfulness, our concept of health & wellness is broadening. We have moved past the traditional understanding of what it means to live a healthy life and now understand wellness to be influenced by a number of different factors.
