Pain and Inflammation with Herbalist, Tammi Sweet
Herbs from the Labyrinth, LLC presents:
Pain and Inflammation Intensive with Tammi Sweet
Saturday, May 23, 2015 9am-5pm
As individuals, many of us experience pain and inflammation ourselves. As health-care providers of all kinds, many of our clients come in with both acute and chronic pain. The best way to assist them in their healing path is to have a deeper understanding of the mechanism of pain, the reason for it physiologically and ways of relieving it when necessary. This class will explore the physiology of the pain pathway from the origin, all the way up to the recognition in the brain. Next the class will discuss the different types of pain; acute, chronic, nociceptive, inflammatory, dysfunctional and neuropathic, their etiology and mechanisms. We will also explore the latest findings in pain research, the myriad of methods to interrupt the pain pathway, how these methods work and finally their hindrances and benefits.
Since inflammation is one of our primary defenses in the body and is a major cause/contributing factor to almost all illness, disease and pain we will take an in-depth look at the entire process. This information will help you make informed decisions concerning when and if you need to alter the process. We will look at how and why inflammation is beneficial, when it is not beneficial and finally we will discuss an anti-inflammatory lifestyle, which includes, among other things, our friends the herbs.
This will be a very rich and full day. If you are in chronic pain or inflammation or are working with folks, please come and learn. We will traverse the entire terrain from novice to expert. You will be able to join the journey if you are a beginner. All levels are welcome, interest is the only requirement.
This workshop will be held in the classroom at Radiance, 9 W Grant St,, in the heart of downtown Lancaster, PA, across the cobblestones from Central Market. Call 717-290-1517 or stop in to register.
Cost for this class is $100 for early registration; after May 12 cost will be $115. 8 hours CEUs are available to Nationally Certified Massage therapists for an additional $10 processing fee.
