Wellness can mean different things for different people. For some it's a physical state, and for others it's a state of mind. For us, wellness embodies a satisfying balance of self-care, play and work or productive activities. We believe wellness is a dynamic state of physical, emotional and social well-being that can be achieved regardless of the presence of a chronic illness or disability.
