Welcome to the Om Zone

For those looking for new approaches to live naturally in the modern world, the Om Zone begins in July, meeting from 4 to 8 p.m. every Thursday at World Tree Natural Medicine. Share ideas about what works and get support in making healthier choices or just chill out to manage stress.

Wm. Thor Conner, ND, CNS, LMT, owner of World Tree Natural Medicine, notes, “Creating health is a not a single choice, but an everyday process, with each choice contributing to the result.” To make it easier, they use natural medicine, acupuncture, chair massage, hydrotherapy, meditation and reiki at no or low cost. The goal is to learn strategies, methods and tools to help manage our stress reactions. Each week will feature a different modality, but there are no limits on topics.

Location: 17W703-F Butterfield Rd., Oakbrook Terrace. For more information, call 630-359-5522, email WorldTree@comcast.net or visit TheHealingPowerOfNature.com.
