La Jolla fitness experts to host Wellness Expo April 5
Chosen as the No. 1 La Jolla chiropractor in “The Best of La Jolla 2012,” readers poll, Dr. Collan Koeppen, D.C. owner and operator of Active Rest Chiropractic (ARC) will present a Fitness & Beauty Expo, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 5 in the Gaines building courtyard, 7590 Fay Ave. (across from Vons).
Dr. Koeppen has been in business for five years. He is a graduate of San Diego State, and he attended Cleveland Chiropractic College and University of Southern California (2004-2008).
His story began after a neck injury he sustained while playing football when he was 8 years old. He began suffering severe pain as a teenager, and only after exhausting all specialists and possibilities, did he receive the care necessary by his now mentor, an upper cervical specialist like himself.
ARC has helped many people lead active lives without symptoms and full corrective care, as evidenced by the reviews on Yelp. Dr. Collan also works for the Foundation of Wellness Professionals and volunteers his time giving health lectures. He belongs to the Chamber of Commerce, Partners in Networking, and Business Alliance Group.
He said the Fitness & Beauty Expo will be a great way to get La Jolla shop owners together to present the best of what the Village has to offer in terms of health and beauty. At the Expo, he will give an ART (Active Release Technique) treatment, which unties knots in muscles and increases sports performance.
In addition, ARC’s certified Massage Therapist will offer free chair massages and ARC’s naturopath will showcase the FDA-approved bio meridian machine that provides individuals insight into allergies, toxicity, weight loss and many unexplained health concerns. The naturopath will provide attendees with guidelines on what to eat to lose weight, increase energy and detoxify the body.
The other featured exhibitor is La Jolla Wellness Studio, voted “The Best Boutique Fitness Center and Trainers” in La Jolla. Wellness Studio staff will offer a free Body Composition Analysis to reflect where your muscle mass is distributed through your body and how this impacts your mobility, and how it impacts what you can eat to lose weight, and what your body water levels are and how they impact your energy. All tests will be conducted by a Certified Personal Trainer, who will help you understand the results and advise you on how best to reach your wellness goals.
A certified nutritionist will also be available to answer questions on how your diet will impact the results from the Body Composition Analysis.
Exhibitors include Juice Plus, It Works, Crazy Wraps, Wonderworks Healing Arts, and others.
