Inner beauty will be the theme of the 11th annual Huntington Women's Networking Day and Awards Ceremony on Tuesday, presented through the Town's Division of Women's Services.
The theme, “Luxurious from the Inside Out,” will be represented at over 50 informational booths, where experts will provide attendees with information, advice and demonstrations on a range of topics.
One of the featured booths and sponsor of the event will highlight The Northport Wellness Center, a multidisciplinary holistic healthcare facility, which offers a range of services including BrainCore Therapy (BCT). BCT claims to serve as an effective, drugless, non-invasive approach to help individuals with a host of issues including: ADD/ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Learning Disorders, Migraine and Tension Headaches, Insomnia, Chronic Pain/Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Anxiety, Seizure Disorder and Tics.
Using over 40 years of university-based research studies, BCT was designed to bring neurofeedback out of the lab and into the public domain. The BrainCore machine uses surface electrodes to measure brainwave activity and then uses auditory, visual or tactile feedback to help the patient to train their brain to control this feedback. The repetitive use of this positive feedback teaches the brain to create new pathways and make existing pathways more efficient, allowing brainwave patterns to normalize and bring the nervous system back into balance.
Another innovative discipline of the Northport Wellness Center to be featured at the conference is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT). Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is the use of high pressure oxygen to help treat a variety of health conditions and diseases. Breathing 100 percent oxygen under pressures greater than sea level helps each cell in the body preserve, repair and enhance function. HBOT provides the body with a greater opportunity for reducing swelling, fighting disease, infection and healing itself.
As October is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Division of Women’s Services together with Cactus Salon will be raising funds for Huntington Breast Cancer Action Coalition through the sale of pink hair extensions that will be sold at the reduced price of $10 with $5 of every sale being donated to HBCAC. Cactus Salon color consultants and stylists will be present to showcase their salon services as well.
The Women’s Division presents this annual event in order to help the public receive important information and learn about services offered by the Town’s numerous non-profit organizations. The Town Board will also be honoring five exceptional women during the annual awards ceremony.
The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Larkfield Manor in East Northport. Admission is $10, $8 for seniors, and includes lunch and raffles.
