About Firewalking:
Firewalking is an ancient practice utilized through the ages by shamans, priests, and ordinary folks both as a religious ritual and as a healing ceremony. Common Ground conducts the program as a technique for personal growth. Firewalking can demonstrate how our thoughts impact everything else in our lives. It’s a wonderful example of the mind-body connection at work.

9th Sun Firelands Regional Medical Center and Advanced Neurologic Associates are pleased to announce that they have joined efforts as event sponsors to host their annual event to raise funds for Multiple Sclerosis (MS) patients in our local community. Funds raised will support patients throughout their battle with MS by assisting with transportation expenses to and from appointments, acupuncture and/or massage therapies, and gym memberships to maintain functional strength, just to name a few.

With your support, this fund can help patients to focus on their health and well-being and allow us to improve the care that they receive.
