6-7:30 p.m.: The Sacred Rings of Dr. Norm Shealy

Acupuncturist Michelle DeStefano will provide an overview of the self-healing techniques of Dr. Norm Shealy, one of the world’s leading experts in pain management. In early June, Dr. Shealy presented a weekend workshop at Shepherd University as part of the annual Mid-Atlantic Region Retreat of the Association for Research and Enlightenment (ARE).

During the Harmony workshop, Michelle will review each of the five rings so participants can have a more thorough understanding of the acupuncture points and how even self-massage on these points can promote healing of specific and/or chronic conditions. This will be an interactive workshop, and there will be time for questions and answers about Dr. Shealy’s Sacred Rings. The workshop is free and open to all. Donations will be gratefully accepted. Handouts will be provided.

Preview works by craftspersons who show their studios during the November Over the Mountain Tour. A preview show begins today and runs through July 15 at the War Memorial Building.
