A Holistic Approach to Pain Management
March 6, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm| $85.00
Pain comes in many forms and can last a short while, acute pain, or for an extended period, chronic pain. Managing pain may be something some of us only think about every once in a while, while others can go only a few minutes without thinking about pain. In this Apothecary Session we will approach both acute and chronic pain patterns from a holistic perspective, discussing the roles of lifestyle, aromatics, and botanicals in pain management.
We will discuss pain types:
- Neuropathic – nerve pain can be caused by diabetes, multiple sclerosis, chemotherapy, and trauma to the central nervous system
- Nociceptive – tissue damage pain can occur following surgery, dental procedures, a sports injury, sprained ankle, headaches, and arthritis
- Syndromes – such as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, and Fibromyalgia Syndrome
- Psychogenic – pain that is exacerbated by anxiety, depression, or stress
Participants will create two pain formulations during this class; supplies are included in the class fee. Class size is limited to six (6) participants to foster a quality learning environment. Allied health practitioners and laypersons are both welcome to attend this class, no prerequisite is required. Please note cancellations will be accepted 7 days prior to class.
