Group Sessions: Back, Shoulder, Neck Pain- ALL 3
Muscle aches. Stabbing pains. Pain shooting down the leg. Seizing pains upon moving. These are common descriptions of people experiencing back, neck or shoulder pain. Most people will agree that when their back is hurting or tweaked, their whole mood and perspective changes. Everything becomes more difficult, and once-simple movements suddenly become a chore or something to try and avoid. Unfortunately, the majority of people will experience back pain at some point during their lives, and many of us may be experiencing it to some degree right now. For some, it is temporary and acute, for others it will be chronic. The number of people experiencing low back pain seems to be on the rise, and it is estimated that more than 50 percent of adults experience some sort of pain in the back, neck or shoulders that restricts daily activities or interferes with sleep. The Mayo Clinic reports that back pain is one of the most common reasons people miss work and is the leading cause of disability worldwide.
Fortunately, there are measures that can be taken to prevent and relieve back pain, BodyTalk being one of them. Combined with good posture and exercise, BodyTalk can help to restore proper body mechanics, which is often all that is needed to get your back functional and feeling good again.
This group session series is an opportunity for anyone to partake in a BodyTalk session with the Founder of the BodyTalk System Dr. John Veltheim for support in addressing pain and functional issues in the back, neck and shoulders. The first session will specifically address Back and Neck Pain, looking at the spinal vertebrae, discs, nerves and so on. The second session will focus on pain and functional issues in the shoulders. The shoulder has a very complex anatomy with four defined joints and eight associated muscles. The third session will focus on the emotional associations of back, neck and shoulder pain. It will address some of the psychological imbalances that can cause or exacerbate back pain, as well as addressing the emotional stress of people dealing with chronic pain situations.
These sessions will be done at a distance through online LiveStream broadcast. The recordings will be available if you cannot attend live and are just as effective as viewing in person. Whether listening live or at a later date, remote group sessions will increase your understanding of important BodyTalk concepts that you can bring into your sessions with clients, as well as providing an opportunity for shifts in your own health, consciousness and perception.
This course counts for 3 hours of continuing education for Certified BodyTalk Practitioners' requirements.
