Spa’s Lectures, Support Group Reflect Its Holistic Focus: Free Event, Registration Required
Jennifer L. Zauner
On September 10, from 1 to 3 p.m., Sirona Therapy Spa in Mount Kisco will host a double lecture on maintaining marital harmony and preventing and identifying eating disorders. Wine and cheese will be served. The event is free, but registration is required. Jennifer L. Zauner, a licensed clinical social worker and the spa’s clinical director, will also launch an Adolescent Eating Disorder support group there in September. It will be held every Thursday from 5:15 to 6:15 p.m.
The practitioners at Sirona Therapy Spa assess their clients holistically and create individualized treatment plans that work for them and their families. The new lecture series and support group reflect this holistic approach, Zauner says.
“Eating disorders are complicated mental health issues that impair the functioning of the body and mind,” she says. “Teens with eating disorders need strong, reliable support systems to help them through their battle. Not only do these groups provide support, but they also provide information about eating disorders, encourage participants to share their experiences, give them insight into the experiences of other teens, and help them form friendships and social networks.”
She says these teens can also benefit from yoga, another service offered at the spa. “Yoga makes the mind and body balance out, strengthens the respiratory and circulatory systems and increases confidence and well-being.”
