What is Wellness? 

Wellness is the total mind, body and spirit union. The balance between these elements is essential to complete unison and overall well-being. The Amelia Island Wellness Festival offers participants the opportunity to explore various paths of healing and regeneration. Wellness takes the form of anything that enables individuals to achieve a sense of equilibrium. In the words of Iman, “Eliminating the things that you love is not wellness. Wellness feeds your soul and makes you feel good.”

Wellness of the body is achieved through soothing massages, yoga, Reiki, and other bodywork modalities. Providing the body with high energy supplementation through healthy, nutrient-dense foods is also important for overall wellness. There is also wellness of the mental, emotional and spiritual bodies that are achieved through such activities as meditation.
