Saturday Oct 27th


Turi Nevin-Turkel & Jane Johnson are teaming for this Integrative Therapeutic Essentials Workshop…

Chronic back pain has become something of an epidemic in our modern American culture…Our lives are too busy to stop and deal with each tense situation or problem that may arise during any given day, so we push the tension aside until later when, hopefully, we’ll be better able to deal with it. But more often than not we end up burying it deep within our body’s handy storage bins: the neck, shoulders, middle back, lower back and hips. This stored tension can often result in weakness, exhaustion, or chronic back pain.

Come explore somatic practices that are intentionally slow and exploratory, which invites us to feel

into our body and learn to move more efficiently. These mindful practices can help us correct movement patterns that hold tension in the nervous systems and muscles. Uncover and understand common causes for pain occurring in the lower back and hips joints o Explore gentle, somatic-based practices to increase mobility and learn to relieve pain through mindful movement o Experience mindfulness meditation, which has been shown to help alleviate chronic low back pain and improve function over usual care alone.
