Be Well Oriental Medicine

Be Well Oriental Medicine is relatively new to Tenafly, but has already demonstrated a strong commitment to increasing our town's wellness.

Starting on July 7, 2015, Be Well Oriental Medicine will be conducting free Qi Gong classes in Huyler Park on Tuesdays and Fridays from 9:00 - 9:45 AM.

Be Well Oriental Medicine utilizes non-invasive traditional diagnostic methods to determine the underlying cause of ailments, and treats the whole person. They use a variety of traditional modalities and medicinal herbs. Most imortantly, they teach people how to take part in their own treatment so they are directly involved in achieving their intended goal – to BE WELL.

Instructor Joseph Kuppelmeyer, on behalf of Be Well Oriental Medicine, has joined the Mayors Wellness Campaign.

Pat Lamson is an awesome woman and she owns an awesome establishment. I am greatly honored to have her on board.

Due to my dietary requirements, Cheese has become my special treat of choice. Before then it was a daily staple. I'm Greek, and thus a huge fan of this wondrous dairy food. Chez Cheese offers a wide variety of cheeses, and the ones I've tasted were all delicious. 

Chez Cheese serves fresh, healthy, and delicious lunches in their cozy downtown restaurant. They cater events. They serve excellent coffee. And they have so many yummy cheeses to try...

Tenafly Senior Center

My wife Athena and I both turned 56 recently, and find ourselves in our second year of Senior Citizenship. As we are both still young at heart and very active, we consider ourselves quite fortunate to be living in the Borough of Tenafly. 

Tenafly has a wealth of Seniors who are very involved in all aspects of our community. Though in our late 50s, we often find ourselves being viewed as the 'younger crowd', which - of course - feels refreshingly good.

The Tenafly Senior Center, located in the heart of town, is the focal point of Senior activity. It provides a wide range of services that are lots of fun and optimize wellness on many levels.

Aside from a wide range of exercise classes and health-related activities, there are diverse art classes, games, discussion groups, community meetings and lectures to enjoy. They publish a monthly newsletter to inform folks about what is currently being offered.

Tenafly's Summer Concert Series started on July 7th and I was fortunate enough to attend the very first performance. Many of the town's residents were gathered in Huyler Park, and a few were dancing, as the James Dean Orchestra played the Sounds of the Big Bands.

Though not normally a fan of Big Band music, I found the experience extremely pleasant and resolved to attend the free Summer Concerts as often as I could.

The series, an annual tradition in Tenafly, runs throughout July and August on Tuesdays at Huyler Park and on Thursdays at Davis-Johnson Park. The fun begins at 7 pm and the Concert is held indoors during inclement weather. 

Ancient Greek healers and old style American physical culturists recommended bathing in music to enhance wellness, so now this twice-weekly treat is officially part of my Quest.
