About Our Wellness Center
Wellness at Villageworks opened in November 2015 as a collaborative workspace for health and wellness professionals that provides a healthy, inviting environment for practitioners and their clients. The space was designed under the premise that professionals work best when part of a supportive community and that the ideal care for clients is holistic and preventative. The professionals in our wellness center come from a range of disciplines and backgrounds so that within one space, clients (of all ages) can access multiple wellness services, including services to enhance physical health, relaxation and emotional well-being.
