The Mosley Family Foundation

 This fund will provide a Relaxation Station to provide a wholistic wellness center that focuses on teaching alternative methods to manage stress that are affordable to all in need of our services. Stress is out of control in our culture. The effects on health of long term stress include headaches, back and body aches, digestive troubles, high blood pressure, diabetes, and many more ailments. Stress over a long period of time can lead to anxiety and mood disorders, which often lead further to alcohol and drug addiction when the person attempts to self-medicate. Those who do not self-medicate are medicated by their doctors. One in ten Americans over age 12 is on an anti-depressant or anti-anxiety medication. Many children, teens and young adults have extremely adverse, sometimes psychotic reactions to anti-depressants. It is necessary to step outside the traditional medical model if we wish to turn around this trend in our culture.

Relaxation Station is a center dedicated to teaching people relaxation skills. The Station will start out teaching beginning level yoga classes and deep breathing skills through “Mindfulness Meditation.” Their goal is to add bodywork services, such as acupressure, sports and chair massage as well as nutritional counseling and self-help “wellness” seminars in such modalities as self-acupressure, acu-yoga, and tapping. They wish to engage various wellness professionals, such as chiropractors, acupuncturists, cranial sacral therapists and other types of practitioners to donate their time once a month and offer people an opportunity to try various alternative healing modalities at little or no cost.
