PEABODY, MA- Some claim there is healing in shopping, but a trip to the North Shore Mall in Peabody on Saturday, March 5, may just save your life.

From 10 a.m. until 3 p.m., the 7th Annual Health and Wellness Expo with over forty booths strung throughout the mall will provide free screenings, fun giveaways and an array of crucial—and free—information for the public, said Ben Bouchard, 30, assistant director of the Salem Chamber of Commerce.

The event—hosted by the Beverly, Peabody and Salem Chambers of Commerce—will feature member businesses from all three Chambers. The Chambers joined together to bring the broadest range of traditional and non-traditional health and wellness opportunities to best serve their communities. Booths will include everything from massage therapy and Reiki healing to MetLife and Dragon Within, a martial arts studio in Salem, according to Chamber representatives.

“North Shore Dentistry of Beverly will be taking pictures of teeth and Eyephoria Optical will have a display of varying frames and lenses,” Cathy Julien, 52, the member associate of Beverly Chamber of Commerce.

Beverly Hospital, the Expo’s largest sponsor, will offer free screenings.
Bouchard said that the event gives people the opportunity to speak with live representatives, ask questions one on one and receive tips and information on how to improve their health and wellness, all with the aim to inform people and connect them with local businesses.

“Our Lifestyle Management Institute will be offering free blood pressure screening and our Breast Health Center will be offering education and handouts related to breast health,” said Gerald Mackillop, Jr., public relations manager at Northeast Health System. There have been instances over the past few years where a person will take advantage of an offered screening and it ended up saving their life. The reason we are so committed to supporting local health expos is that we have screenings in place that can greatly impact a person’s life.”

Other businesses that will be represented at the Expo include CAB Health and Recovery, North Shore Elder Services and Spalding Hospital.

“In just an hour or two, people can visit so many vendors in the health and wellness field,” said Bouchard.

There will also be booths for athletic clubs, health insurance providers, nutritionists, yoga and beauty products by Mary Kay. Sports medicine professionals will be on hand as well as banks, financial institutions and numerous alternative therapies.

“You can get beautiful, have your teeth checked, pick out new eye glasses and sign up for ballet, all in one place,” said Julien.

  8. The Nike Kobe A.D. is the first Kobe model after the Mamba’s retirement, but not much is known about the shoe.Today, some images leaked of what is being called the Nike Kobe A.D., KD 7 and it isn’t quite what we were expecting. These look like wear-test samples, so the actual finished shoe could Curry 1 be completely different than what is seen here. On top of that, these look like the Mentality, which is Kyrie 2 a bit strange, as those are more of a budget model than an actual signature sneaker.Maybe the Kobe A.D. kobe basketball shoes is not a signature shoe, but rather another take-down line of shoes with Kobe’s name. It wouldn’t be too kevin durant shoes far fetched seeing as how LeBron just released the Zoom Witness, another new line within the LeBron series at KD 8 Nike.As far as tech, which could change by the time the shoe launches, this sneaker seems to feature a Kobe high top basic Fuse upper with Nike’s Torch tech for the tongue. Tooling looks to be of the drop-in variety, and LeBron zoom soldier 9 traction is similar to what has been used on the Hyperlive and Hyperchase — both budget models from Nike. Warriors Team Store The lacing is the only real interesting feature; it looks like a ratchet lace system or possibly some sort Jordan Shoes of auto-lacing system.Take a look at what’s being called the Nike Kobe A.D. below and share your thoughts on NBA Stars Shoes
