The weeklong event, held Jan. 23 through Jan. 30 connects people to dozens of organizations and service providers aimed at helping people learn about and experience ways to improve their physical, mental and spiritual well-being.

Wellness Week kicks off Jan. 23 with a Wellness Festival from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Encinitas Library. There will be dozens of exhibitors and presenters offering free product demonstrations and samples — from massages to acupuncture treatments — free health screenings, free mini-treatments and educational workshops, as well as food vendors, live music and a variety of kids’ activities.
