Carolina Beach Brings Health Full Circle

Carolina Beach Brings Health Full Circle. 

Beginning from the inside out, Island Wellness Market offers organic and satisfying menu options to take the guesswork out of your lunch.

From wraps to snacks, this place offers "clean" options for whatever you are craving.

The idea for Island Wellness was born in 2011 by founder and owner, Amy Sawyer. At that time, she and her husband had been living in Carolina Beach for nearly ten years. After a health scare, Amy resigned from her corporate job to begin Island Wellness Market not only for local organic products but as a forum to help educate consumers on how to live a healthy, balance life.

In addition, Carolina Beach Community Acupuncture provides a non-invasive stress reliever which enables you to tackle daily tasks with your OWN energy. Instead of relying on coffee, energy drinks and other supplements to get you through the day, consider a more holistic approach.

What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a simple procedure in which needles are gently placed in specific places of the body to balance the body's energy, called "qi" (pronounced "chee"). From a western standpoint, acupuncture "points" are small areas which can access blood circulation, nerves, muscles and even the hormonal system.
