At this time the large studio room complete and ready for sessions. Several classes are already occurring daily within the large studio. The smaller studio and treatment room will be ready for sessions in early November. All renovations and interior design have been done by the Samorajs themselves and they say, “it has been a labor of love”.

“We wanted to create a space that an instructor or acupuncturist starting out could come and have a professional space that was beautiful and only used for the purposes of alternative health and healing. We feel we have really created that with Willow Health and Wellness and are excited that we can provide another way for local business to grow. When people come into the center they can see how beautiful it is. Michelle has done all the decorating and interior design. She has worked very hard to make sure the visuals of the space makes you feel relaxed and know that it is a place used only for purpose you are going to be here for ”, stated Michael Samoraj.

All practitioners and instructors must provide certificates of professional training and proof of insurance before applying to rent a room time slot. Prices currently range from $15- $20 per hour, depending on the room type and time of day. An open house for the public will be held mid- November with the date and time posted on their website and Facebook page.

A list of instructors and classes currently being offered can be found at their website, willowhwc.com.
