For Those Who Hurt: Managing Chronic Pain

More than one in ten American adults lives with chronic or daily pain. This interactive experience will introduce you to integrative modalities and self-care options for relieving chronic pain and improving healing after injury. Join Licensed Acupuncturist Janet Shaffer and Licensed Massage Therapist Kim Turk for a 3-hour workshop to learn about and experience many of these methods to determine if they work for you. People living with conditions such as chronic pain, slow-healing injuries, fibromyalgia, neuropathy, sciatica, muscle pain, joint pain, tendinitis, and bursitis may benefit from participating in this program.

As a participant in the program, you will:

  • Learn about how to use self-massage and acupressure to relieve pain
  • Sample topical liniments that can be applied directly to the area of pain
  • Try out pain-relieving devices/gadgets that our clinical team recommends
