Be Your Own Best Friend: Join New Wellness Series at WholeFamily MD

Feeling “off”? We want to help.

WholeFamily MD is here to help you make 2019 one of your best with a series of evening talks on a variety of self-care topics.

Our once-monthly series, hosted by WholeFamily MD acupuncturist Giulietta Octavio, together with our physicians and nurse practitioner, offers kind and do-able ways to help yourself feel great. We want to help you avoid cycles of promises and disappointment that can backfire when in search of self-satisfaction and health outcomes. We would like to suggest that your results will be better with kindness in self-care, just as you would be gentle and kind to your best friend.

Start the year off with a promise to be your own best friend, with guidance from our providers with our monthly series of talks incorporating practical whole-person ideas.
