FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- Cindi Bigelow recently visited the Norma F. Pfriem Breast Care Center in Fairfield. 

Bigelow, president and CEO of Bigelow Tea, made the visit to discuss naturopathic medicine with Dr. Veronica Waks and to learn more about the Breast Care Center’s wellness programs.

Bigelow Tea supports the Norma F. Pfriem Breast Care Center’s wellness programs through the Bigelow Tea Community Challenge, an annual run that raises more than $100,000 each year and supports 18 local nonprofit organizations, representatives said. 

"Bigelow Tea is developing a wellness program for employees and partnering with the Breast Care Center to provide lectures and workshops on health and wellness topics," a press release said.

Several workshops are set for Bigelow's corporate office in Fairfield. The workshops include topics such as naturopathic medicine, nutrition, sleep therapy, emotional well-being, massage therapy, acupuncture, yoga, Reiki and Pilates. 

“Employees will learn about wellness services that can have a long term impact on their health,” Bigelow said in the release. “We want to make it easy for employees to access services that can help them stay well at any age.”

As part of the Bigelow Tea wellness program, representatives said employees will be invited to participate in the Bigelow Wellness Challenge.

“We are developing a point system to reward employees for healthy lifestyle choices,” said Bigelow in the release. “Employees who eat healthy, exercise regularly and visit health and wellness providers will earn benefits, such as credit toward a yoga or other wellness class at the Norma F. Pfriem Breast Care Center.”
