Living Well

At the Towson University Health Center we believe health is more than just the absence of disease, which is why we use a holistic, wellness approach to health.

What is wellness?

Wellness is an active process of change and growth facilitated by becoming more aware of making choices that will lead towards a more balanced and successful existence. Wellness is comprised of eight dimensions (mental/emotional, social, physical, spiritual, environmental, financial, occupational, and intellectual health) that are interrelated to make up a healthy/well person. Ideally, all of the areas would be in balance and harmony for optimal wellness. This can be difficult to achieve, so we prefer to think of wellness as something to strive for and be mindful of daily.

Wellness Resources available at the Health Center:

  • Acupuncture (group and individual)
  • Massage
  • Health Education programs, fairs, and events
