A wellness platform advocating self-care within the Arts & Entertainment industry through mindfulness, exercise, physical therapy, medical evaluation, and nutrition.
"There's no denying that those involved in dance music are in need of healing.
A 2016 British study found that musicians could be up to three times more likely than average to suffer from anxiety or depression.
DJs, with their disrupted sleep patterns and constant exposure to alcohol and drugs, are surely high on the at-risk list, along with many other people involved in dance music culture."

Music has a special way of healing the mind, body and soul.
But sometimes the lifestyle associated with it can have the opposite effect.
