Treating Pain and Trauma with Chinese Medicine
Chronic pain is epidemic in our society. It is the single most common reason people seek medical care, affecting 1 in 4 Americans, and it costs the public over $100 billion each year. Yet, pain is often difficult to understand and treat because of its complexity.
In this seminar you’ll learn how to think about and treat pain using the tools of Chinese medicine, particularly herbs. We’ll explore the roots and causes of chronic pain, and help you to understand the factors affecting your own pain. We’ll also discuss of traumatic injury and the treatment of acute pain. And we’ll talk about things you can do and remedies you can apply to support pain relief as well as deeper healing.
As always, the emphasis will be on helping you understand the Chinese medical approach, and on providing practical tools and basic understanding to support you in the care of your own health.
The talk will be held on Saturday, January 30, 2010, at 1:00 PM and will last about an hour. The location is Fitness Over 50, which is at 5460 SW Philomath Blvd. in southwest Corvallis. It is half a block west of Sunset Center and Bi-Mart between Hutley’s TV and Morgan Draperies.
The seminar is open to the public. It is free of charge.
