As a way to show gratitude for essential workers during this pandemic, Bhakti Wellness Center, in Edina, is offering free care to local healthcare workers, grocery store employees, fire department personnel and emergency medical technicians (EMTs) for the entire month of August. Services included in this free essential healthcare campaign are chiropractic exam and adjustments, and socially distanced community acupuncture and community bioelectric medicine, for managing stress, anxiety, depression and physical pain. In addition to these in-clinic services, they are also providing free loans of bioelectric medicine stress management devices to be used on-site at healthcare facilities.
Bhakti Wellness Center is Minnesota’s largest, diverse and integrative medicine clinic, with 30 healthcare providers across the spectrum of care. Their mission is to support providers in having personal and professionally rewarding careers in healthcare while affording health care consumers access to high quality, affordable and integrative care to live their fullest lives.
Bhakti Wellness Center is being joined in their effort by Heart of Dance, a local nonprofit organization that delivers the physical, mental and emotional benefits of partner dance to youth, seniors, veterans and other at-risk communities, and is now providing free Zoom virtual dance lessons for frontline workers.
“We have deep admiration and gratitude for the essential workers,” shares Guy Odishaw, founder of Bhakti Wellness Center. “The long hours, difficult conditions, the risk and sacrifices they and their families have made—they are running a marathon at a sprinter’s pace. They deserve to stop for a moment, rest and recharge.”Location: 7550 France Ave. S., Ste. 220, Edina. For more information, visit BhaktiClinic.com.
