Additional details will be listed on the Wella website and Facebook pages.

What is Wellapalooza?

The best integrative health and wellness conferences (& retreats!) ever!

Wellapalooza believes in integrative healthcare, utilizing the benefits of Western medicine, with the integrative approaches of Eastern medicine in managing chronic health conditions.

We are MORE than a typical health conference.

Wellapalooza integrative health and wellness conferences believe in bringing education, “how to” help and fun to the people who need it the most.

We provide you with informative, reputable and updated information on how to manage chronic conditions from community thought leaders, as well as instruction on how to approach various alternative therapies while focusing on what you can do versus what you can’t.

We bring doctors, therapists, healers, body workers, nutritionist, wellness practitioners and exercise moderators together for YOU all in one place. Wellapalooza offers workshops, active seminars (you will not just sit there), interesting presentations, and various additional activities to enjoy on your own while attending a conference.

Wellapalooza is the ticket to laying a strong foundation for your body’s journey to greater overall health and wellness.

THIS is how Wellapalooza is different – Integrative. Mind/Body focused. Fun.
