AHA! A Holistic Approach & Brighter Lipstick Bigger Earrings
A Feel Good Collaboration
AHA! A Holistic Approach Center announces its 1-year commitment to Brighter Lipstick Bigger Earrings. This grass roots, feel good project was originally begun by Pam Sawyer of Lake County, Florida following her own breast cancer journey. Local artist, BabS Snyderman has taken the reigns for Lee and Collier county.
The concept is both simple and brilliant. Artists come together to create earrings for women undergoing chemotherapy. Earrings are placed on small, donated table-top trees and the trees are then placed in local infusion centers. Women are encouraged to choose a pair of earrings and a lipstick. No one pays a fee.
AHA! agrees with Snyderman, "What an incredible way to give a woman a boost at one of the most difficult times of her life."
A second earring making marathon is scheduled for Saturday, November 14th from 10 til 5 at BabS Beads at 16205 S Tamiami Trail in Fort Myers. Larger in scope, this event features refreshment, live music and mini presentations by other supporting businesses. AHA! will be on hand with chair massage. Radiology Regional's Mobile Mammo vehicle will also be present. Those wishing to schedule a mammogram on November 14th should call 239.936.4068.
Women not knowing how to craft a pair of earrings are encouraged to attend as they will be taught the simple technique.

Iconic Health & Harmony Center Changes Hands
2015 Brings Change and a 25th Anniversary
2015 finds the iconic Health & Harmony Center celebrating both its 25th anniversary, a new owner and a new location.
The new owner is Cindy Carfore, Founder of AHA! A Holistic Approach Center. Both AHA! and Health & Harmony are now in the historic Iona Schoolhouse Complex at 15971 McGregor Blvd.
Says Carfore, “After 25 years, the most logical move was to stay in the neighborhood. We remain on the same property but in a larger, more modern building in order to accommodate the additional services and growth we expect.”
Health and Harmony has long been known for massage, acupuncture, CST and yoga classes leaning towards the Alignment and Iyengar style. Quantum Energetics, Clinical Psychotherapy and a full spectrum infrared sauna has now been added to the center’s offerings.
Health & Harmony is the oldest yoga studio in Fort Myers. Celebratory events are being planned throughout 2015 to honor the 25th anniversary. If you have ever taught or attended classes at Health & Harmony, you are asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org or to call 239-433-5995.
