Self Care for Chronic Pain with Yoga Therapy and Healing Touch

Monday May 15th and Monday May 22nd
6pm – 7:30pm
Workshop Fee $75

Are you looking for ways to manage chronic pain that don’t involve medication? Consider a gentle exploration into Healing Touch and Yoga Therapy that connects mind, body and spirit for overall health and wellbeing with WholeHealth Chicago’s Healing Touch practitioner Katie Oberlin and Yoga Therapist Renee Zambo.

Yoga has been used in the treatment of chronic conditions for its effectiveness in stress reduction and pain management. The calming breath work used in yoga promotes mental clarity and focus, while postures create a sense of comfort in the body.

Healing Touch is a holistic, energetic approach that encompasses physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual wellbeing for all ages and health circumstances. It complements conventional medical and psychological care and is well documented in the benefits it provides for pain relief without medication.

In this two week experiential workshop, you will:

  • Learn breathing techniques to reduce stress and promote awareness
  • Practice gentle movements that can be performed seated on the floor, laying down, or on a chair
  • Experience guided meditations for healing
  • Receive an overview of Healing Touch and how it can help
  • Discuss the various types of acute and chronic pain (physical and/or emotional) that may be impacting you or someone you know
  • Learn specific Healing Touch self-care techniques that are effective in reducing or eliminating pain
  • Have an opportunity to consider the question: “What is my body trying to tell me through this pain?”

Enrollment is limited. Register online here or by calling (773) 296-6700 to secure your spot.

  • New Hope For Sinus Sufferers

    When osteopath Dr. Rob Ivker moved to Colorado in the 1980s to set up his family practice, he had no idea that when he stepped off the plane he’d succumb to symptoms of chronic sinusitis that just wouldn’t go away: stuffy nose, thick mucus, pressure behind his cheekbones and above his eyebrows, dull aching headache, and thick goopy drainage in the back of his throat.

  • Director of IV Therapies Katie McManigal, BSN, ANP

    Most people at some point in their lives have had an intravenous (IV) line. An adept nurse warned you about the tiny pinch of the needle as it was smoothly inserted and taped in place.  Then the  fluid dangling above your head slowly started making its way through a tube and into your body. IVs are all over the place in hospitals. They’re seen in Read More

    Normally, when I write a welcome Health Tip announcing a new WholeHealth Chicago practitioner, I go right to the person’s biography to illuminate why you might consider making an appointment. Dr. Sandra is a practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and her bio is rich with detail, so I’m saving it for the end. First, I asked her to tell me about a recent patient Read More
