Holistic Art Program & Alternative Health Care

By: Carl Borden

Take a look at our health care system! It is focused on when we are sick, then letting someone else improve our health. That concept obviously does not work very well.
It’s time we stand up and take care of ourselves and each other. Let’s get off the couch, go back to the classroom and learn better, more natural ways to improve and maintain our health and wellbeing.

Let’s take matters into our own hands and learn more about alternative health care and what it can do for us. So where can we learn about alternative health care?  Pueblo has a great source for this; the “Healing Arts Program” located in the Dorcy Cancer Center at St. Mary-Corwin Hospital. This program is a group of alternative health care practitioners that volunteer time to help educate cancer patients and the community to the benefits of alternative health care. Although located in the Dorcy Cancer Center, to be close to those cancer patients as they begin their journey back to wellness, it is also open to the people in the community, in hopes of helping you maintain your health.

Each month the Healing Arts Program offers classes at the Dorcy Cancer Center on different aspects of alternative health care and how it may benefit you in your life. Most of those classes are free or have only minimal charge. Examples of some of the classes offered are:  laughter, art, massage, poetry, lymphatics, bio-feedback, dance, aerobics, acupressure, Tai Chi, cooking, nutrition, pet therapy, etc.  Do you know all you need to know about these programs and the life changing benefits they could provide for you and your loved ones.

The Healing Arts Program is dedicated to helping the community as a whole to truly improve and maintain your health and wellbeing by “bridging the gap between traditional medicine and holistic health”.

If not, let’s get up and “walk the walk” and go to the classes through Healing Arts Program at Dorcy Cancer Center; use these resources to better yourself, to better the community as a whole. The more our community uses such resources the more they will grow and benefit all of us. I hope that each of you will attend these classes, so when they get the health care reform passed, we will not need to use it nearly as often.

To obtain more information on the classes offered by the Healing Arts Program and to get on a mailing list to be notified of future classes, call 557-3738 or e-mail and leave your mailing address or e-mail address.
