By Jacob Carozza GLOBE CORRESPONDENT
Openings, closings, and more in the south suburbs
Zen Den, a fitness and wellness center in Norwell, will celebrate on Sept. 23 its opening earlier this summer, as well as the launch of the Zen Den Foundation. The foundation will work to financially support nonprofits and provide health and wellness services free of charge to individuals who may need them, such as those experiencing chronic pain. Throughout the weekend of the celebration, Zen Den will offer services such as kickboxing and pilates classes, and muscle therapy sessions, with customers encouraged to donate to the Zen Den Foundation, rather than pay a fee. The center also provides sports performance training and rehabilitative therapy, and has a therapeutic “float tank.”

We reboot through reviving; work out tension caused by the hectic fall schedule with kick boxing.”
