At SHAW Center for healing, we believe that a mind-body-spirit approach to recovery is a way to create your best self! “I enjoy starting my days with a morning workout,” says Founder Christopher Shaw. “It allows me to quiet my mind, center myself, and prepare for a day of helping others. I have learned throughout my years of recovery that I must put my oxygen mask on first before helping others.”
