Beyond insurance plan benefits, members can also take advantage of health and wellness classes and events offered at Harken Health Centers for no charge.


Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a safe, effective, and natural approach to promoting healing and preventing illness from occurring in the body. Acupuncture works by putting very thin, single use, sterile needles into certain pressure points in your body. This stimulates energy flow, which causes healing.

Zumba

Zumba is an aerobic dance fitness program that features movements inspired by various styles of Latin American dance, performed primarily to Latin American dance music. The choreography incorporates hip hop, soca, salsa, belly dance and various aerobic techniques such as squats and lunges, just to name a few! Though it may sound intimidating, no rhythm or previous dance background is required. The Zumba motto is “ditch the workout, join the party!” You only need to bring a willing spirit, teachable attitude, and of course water and comfortable shoes.
