FLEMINGTON DECLARES DRUG-FREE PAIN MANAGEMENT MONTH
Mayor and Holistic Practitioners Host Community Event
On Saturday, September 14th from 9 to 3, at the Stangl Factory Farmers’ Market, area holistic practitioners will offer a free community forum to educate and demonstrate drug-free pain management strategies. At 11 am,
Mayor Betsy Driver will make an official announcement proclaiming September “Drug-Free Pain Management Month.”
“The goal of this occasion is to educate the public that alternative approaches to pain management are effective, safe and non-habit forming,” states Mayor Driver. The proclamation and event were spearheaded by Flemington Chiropractic Center, in coordination with the Hunterdon Drug Awareness Program (HDAP). “In the wake of the opioid epidemic, many respected health care organizations are recognizing the value of a conservative, non-drug approach to pain,” said Dr. Lindsey Mansueto of Flemington Chiropractic Center.
During the day, area practitioners will discuss chiropractic care, energy healing, reiki, massage, acupuncture, exercise, and meditation. Free demonstrations of treatment techniques and consultations will be available. Raffle tickets will be sold for a holistic healing basket. Proceeds will benefit HDAP in memory of Flemington resident, Matthew Magaleski.
Event participants include: A Life in Balance, Jersey Community Acupuncture, Gardner Family Chiropractic, Light Source Chiropractic, Mind Body Spirit in Balance, Crossfit Flemington, Newell Strength and Flemington Chiropractic Center.
