CINCINNATI (WKRC) - Healthcare providers are teaming up to help you stay well.

The University of Cincinnati Center for Integrative Health and Wellness is hosting a community symposium Saturday, Jan. 12. This program is a day of learning about total wellness to help you help yourself this new year.

Jo Claar decided to do this recently when she signed up for sessions with UC Health licensed acupuncturist Derek Johnson.

"You can have significant changes in the quality of life and reducing their symptoms so at least they can start to participate more in their life," said Johnson.

Claar's initial complaint was back pain.

"Then recently within the last six to eight weeks, I've had a lot of numbness, burning and tingling from my shoulders down to my fingertips," Claar said.

Johnson places tiny needles on specific target points in Claar's acupuncture sessions to help Claar's body heal itself. It's also why he's part of the Center for Integrative Medicine's wellness symposium, which is focused on helping the body and the mind heal itself.

It's a one-day program to provide sound education and research to help with new year's resolutions or personal health goals with everything from weight loss through healthy nutrition to improving fitness levels through mind-body exercise and much more.

Part of the goal is to give you some tools to make some choices this year that might make this a different year than years past when you couldn't stick to those resolutions.

Tickets for this symposium start at just $25. It's at the University of Cincinnati's Tangeman Center from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. nine on Jan. 12.
