Since its inception in 2013, the group has been active and interactive, planning events, co-treating, and sharing best practices in business as well as in providing care and assistance. We are a group of self-described wellness professionals connecting to one another, and to the communities in which we work, for support and to enhance wellness and health – to be the best we can be as individuals, as partners, and as community.

This group is dedicated to staying simple, allowing people to participate as their time and energy allow.

We meet in person about four times per year and maintain an active discussion email list, Plans include creating and participating in workshops, case studies, providing experts for panels, and taking opportunities to be an integral part of the health and wellness of our communities.

As a member, we encourage you to be as involved as you can be, joining in discussions, asking questions, connecting to those you would like to connect with in small groups, or with our larger group. However, our requirements are minimal. We prefer that you join us and be present!

Think of MAWC as a room. We are all clearly labeled in the manner of our choosing. We are all in the room, and are easy to find. We can converse, or we may choose simply to listen, or to watch; we can make plans, and we can move around. We can also invite other health and wellness professionals and those seeking or needing care into the room to meet and to engage.

Who are we? Originally starting as a way for private practice physical therapists to connect locally, MAWC quickly grew into something more. We are practitioners in large public systems, students, acupuncturists, traditional allopathic physicians, trainers, occupational therapists, osteopaths, nutritionists, naturopathic physicians, chiropractors, yoga therapists and instructors, psychotherapists and more. We are long-time providers and students-to-be; we are invested in our current work or we are transitioning, entrepreneurs.

We bring our wider networks to the group, further enhancing the whole.
