PWU Wellness Hub Orientation

The PWU Institute of Family Life and Children’s Studies spearheaded an Orientation about the PWU Wellness Hub last October 18, 2019 in Seminar Room 2. Ms. Sally Bongalonta, said that the hub aims to provide a safe space for students and employees to open up about their wellness issues. The hub will be composed of psychiatrists, psychologists, and counselors to assist participants with information to develop positive coping skills and enable them to interact with others for mutual support.

Some of the activities at the Wellness Hub include weekly wellness challenges, helping them in their physical, emotional, spiritual, and occupational needs. Dr. Tan Cho-Chiong, a neurologist from the Metropolitan Medical Center, was also present at the orientation to discuss “Tui-Na” Therapy, one of the four main branches of traditional Chinese medicine, along with acupuncture, qi gong, and Chinese herbal medicine. “Tui-Na” is based on the theory that imbalances of qi, which is the body’s vital life force or energy, can cause blockages that lead to symptoms such as pain and illness. This therapy will be one of the services to be offered by the hub.

The Wellness Hub is a project of the IFLCS department together with Campus Life, the Guidance Office, Medical Clinic, and the Human Resources Department, and is set to open to the PWU community by November this year.
