The interactive session will address various aspects of health including physical activity, nutrition and stress management while focusing on providing information and solutions to help people be and feel their best.
 
The event is scheduled for Friday, 17th August at the hotel premises from 3pm-6pm.

Lifestyle Management, a sister company of RAK Hospital.
 
Approach to holistic wellness is rapidly changing in the UAE, with several emirates rolling out initiatives to improve mindfulness and mitigate stress related ailments. According to a 2017 report released by Colliers Experiential Travel Series, the UAE is heading the Middle East wellness tourism market with an average of 1.7 million trips generating $2.7 billion (Dh9.9 billion) annually.
 
Lending weight to these efforts, the workshop will bring unique wellness concepts and specialized health services for community members, focusing on prevention and management of diseases such as obesity, hypertension, diabetes and other physical conditions. The program is designed to be interactive and outcome based enabling RAK Hospital to improve general public health, raise mindfulness and introduce the foundations and benefits of physical health and mental wellbeing.
 
Dr. Savita Menon, Psychologist with RAK Hospital said, “We all know that excess stress can lead to a host of ill effects psychologically and physically – including hypertension & diabetes. Stress actually accelerates one’s biological clock, causing premature aging, & bringing with it several other health issues. So the most important way to prevent these ailments is by learning to manage stress hence avoiding psychosomatic disorders. At the workshop, we will provide tools and techniques to overcome stress while forging a healthier relationship with the self and others”. 
 
Dr Raza Siddiqui, CEO of the Arabian Healthcare Group and Executive Director RAK Hospital said, “Our educational health workshops are geared towards improving community wellbeing and we are excited to bring yet another  initiative that will promote wellness, a healthy lifestyle and chronic disease prevention”.
