Relief from Joint Pain

October 4th; 6 – 7:30pm     Registration: $45 (includes take-home materials)
Presented by Renee Zambo, RTY, WholeHealth Chicago’s Yoga Therapist

Joint pain affects many people throughout their lives, the causes of which vary from person to person. This Yoga Therapy workshop is for anyone experiencing joint pain, whether a novice to yoga and movement or not.

The evening will begin with a brief discussion on the causes of joint pain, and how to build healthy function and support for joints. Renee Zambo, WholeHealth Chicago’s Yoga Therapist, will guide participants through gentle stretches focused on specific joints of the body – first with the toes, then moving up the fingers, wrists and shoulders. Slow and gradual strengthening techniques will be applied to the musculature that supports major joints. The class will end with restorative yoga postures, using props such as bolsters and blankets to support the body, for complete relaxation and ease.

All movements can be performed in a chair, if reaching the floor is challenging. Participants will be guided to move at their own pace, with mindfulness of breath and body to experience ease and relief without exhaustion or fatigue. A sequence of movements and instructions will be available after for a continued home practice.

For additional questions, please contact Renee at Renee@wholehealthchicago.com.

  • To A Long and Healthy Life!

    You may have read earlier this summer about the public health statisticians who announced that Chicagoans could get a reasonable estimate about how long they’ll live based on their neighborhood, sort of a Death by Zip Code. If you live in Streeterville, you’ve got a good chance to reach 90. If you’re struggling in Englewood, you’re lucky to hit 60. That gap, by the way, Read More

  • Dandruff, Fungi, and Cancer of the Pancreas

    It’s an eye-catching title, I’ll admit. But the links are quite real and further research may guide medicine in new directions of cancer prevention and treatment. It all starts in your gut microbiome, the totality of microorganisms–bacteria, viruses, protozoa, and fungi–present in your gastrointestinal (GI) tract, mouth to anus. Until recently, researchers and clinical physicians alike paid virtually no attention to the microbiome and the Read More

  • 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.
