Taking our Fur Friend is always great! Here are some health tips to just remind you as you plan to go!

 What this has to offer…We believe that as one begins to heal from their grief/loss, addiction issues, various forms of emotional trauma, it’s important to explore many new activities (or return to hobbies you once left behind). This allows you to thrive in ways you may at one time have given up on, or never had opportunities to enjoy.  These healthy resources are here for you to explore as you grow, thrive, and live the life you deserve. We encourage all our patients/clients at PWC (Palms Wellness Center) to get out and be active as their therapeutic support has began to help in addressing various types of needs they have come to us with, we fully embrace what the holistic combined approach offers. If there is an idea, location, hobby, activity, or other resources you’d like to see, make sure to write us! Please visit our “home Page” to email us directly.
