Cary Acupuncturist David Peters Forms Wellness Cooperative with 14 Holistic Health Practitioners

Cary Acupuncturist David Peters, L.Ac., along with partners Karen Velasquez, L.Ac., and Tracy Sturdivant, L.Ac., have formed a Wellness Cooperative called the Long Life Wellness Center in Cary, NC.

The newly formed Long Life Wellness Center (http://www.longlifewellnesscenter.com) will house a total of 14 wellness and holistic health practices in the areas of acupuncture, massage therapy, yoga therapy, physical therapy, medical qigong, marriage and family counseling, nutritional counseling, health coaching, and hypnotherapy. The Wellness Center is located at 1127 Kildaire Farm Road in Cary, NC, and opens for business on May 1, 2014.

Holistic medicine is based on the principle of strengthening the body's self-healing system, making it both a preventative approach that supports wellness, as well as a therapeutic approach that supports people recovering from illness. According to the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), nearly 40 percent of Americans are using some form of complementary or holistic healthcare.

"Most chronic disease is exacerbated by stress," says Peters, "and traditional medicine doesn't address stress very well. We have highly skilled practitioners in complementary and alternative medicine therapies. Our purpose at the Long Life Wellness Center is to serve the community in a heart-centered way, providing support, relief, and education to empower people to better manage their health."

The 14 treatment-room facility has a large, two-story classroom where tai chi, yoga and qigong classes will be held. There is also a smaller classroom for group meetings, workshops, and small classes. The two classrooms can also be rented for wellness-related activities. Contact David Peters at 919-274-8054 for more information.
