Herren Wellness Transforms Historic Inn into Holistic Retreat

SEEKONK, Mass., March 5, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Chris Herren, a nationally recognized motivational

speaker and former NBA player, is opening his first wellness center at the historic Jacob Hill Inn in Seekonk, Mass.

"Herren Wellness will be a place for men and women to be empowered, inspired, and discover how to live a healthier life," said Herren. "Over the past several years, I've spoken to thousands of high school youth, college students, and professional athletes sharing my journey and encouraging them to think more seriously about the decisions they make. Throughout my travels, I realized that, while there are resources available for those who need addiction treatment, there are few programs dedicated to the prevention of these disorders, or helping those in recovery seeking to experience the fullness of a new life."

Herren Wellness at Jacob Hill, which welcomes its first guests on March 5, offers an innovative, holistic approach that focuses on nutritional guidance, fitness training, massage therapy, acupuncture, sleep monitoring, mindfulness, yoga, educational workshops, life coaching and more.  The inn will host guests for 30 days to six months. The six-acre property includes a fitness center, outdoor swimming pool, sprawling fields, walking paths and a tennis court.
