Sleep workshop scheduled at Wright Center



ELLSWORTH — On Friday, July 13, Dr. Penelope Houghton of Acadia Naturopathic Medical Clinic will present a workshop titled “Holistic Methods to Promote Sleep” from 11 a.m. to noon at the Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center.

Houghton will explore how sleep can be affected by pain, side effects of treatments and the anxieties about the impact of illness on our lives and the importance of sleep in helping to cope and heal.

The discussion will look at strategies to help when one experiences disrupted sleep and therapies that can help restore circadian rhythms and healthy sleep cycles.

Houghton established the Acadia Naturopathic Medical Clinic in Ellsworth in 2004. As a naturopathic doctor, she believes that health is a process of enhancing the body’s innate capacity to heal. Her practice offers holistic health care and a range of treatments for all ages.
