Spring Wellness Day at The Healing Arts Collective & South Philadelphia Community Acupuncture

By CT Liotta for the Passyunk Post

The Healing Arts Collective and South Philadelphia Community Acupuncture will host Spring Wellness Day at 519 S. 9th Street in Philadelphia on Saturday, April 21 from 12 to 4 p.m. Registration is free at www.healingartscollective-pa.com.

The day will feature food and drinks, community acupuncture, massage and bodywork, sound healing, reiki, yoga, pilates, Gyrotonic and meditation. Guests can win free services and classes and receive discounts good for future visits.

Adrian King, a licensed massage therapist and certified yoga instructor, founded the collective to offer holistic medicine and wellness services in South Philadelphia. “The focus of the collective is CAM, or complementary alternative medicine,” said King. “It’s not meant to replace going to the doctor, but to be part of an overall wellness plan.”

Heidi Lengel, a certified counsellor specializing in maternal mental health, agrees. “Many of us specialize in issues across the perinatal spectrum, treating everything from fertility difficulties to postnatal obstacles. It’s wonderful to work with other doctors and practitioners, and cross-refer and collaborate. Mental tension leads to physical tension. Fostering wellness in the mind fosters wellness in the body. We have to look at the holistic picture.”

Since its early days, the number of practitioners in the Healing Arts Collective has grown. Each practitioner brings a different service. Often, those drawn in by pilates or massage discover Gyrotonics, Sound Journey, or meditation services less-known to Western customers.

South Philly Community Acupuncture

The Healing Arts Collective recently welcomed South Philly Community Acupuncture. Founded in 2007 by Lauren O’Brien Buckley, a licensed Acupuncturist, the group has been a part of South Philadelphia since 2007 when it opened offices on East Passyunk Ave. Buckley and her associates offer both private and community acupuncture sessions. “The private sessions are longer, but the community sessions make acupuncture affordable to people of all income levels – one goal of South Philly Community Acupuncture,” said Buckley.

13-15 Neighborhood Bikeway Project to Begin Phase One
The 13/15 Neighborhood Bikeway Project is a north/south pair of priority bicycle streets between Center City and South Philadelphia, from Oregon Avenue to Market Street. The new bikeway treatment includes signage and pavement markings to indicate priority for bicyclists over vehicles. This project will not result in a loss of parking or vehicle lanes, but will send a clear reminder to drivers that bicycles may use the full travel lane.
