Time: 6.30pm – 9pm
The current estimate is that 28 million people in the UK live with chronic pain. In the USA that figure is 100 million people. In other words, there are more people with chronic pain than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined.
Yet for many of these people, standard medical approaches are not working, and they are left struggling to find a solution to their pain.
The answer is in the fascia, the main connective tissue in the body, which plays an important role in communicating and maintaining chronic pain.
In this informal and interactive workshop, we dive into the fascinating world of fascia, exploring the connections between fascia and chronic pain, and it’s importance in restoring pain-free movement and health.
Come along prepared to feel your fascia as we practise simple self-help myofascial techniques, fascial stretches, and relaxation exercises that you can share with your clients, or use for yourself.
Amanda Oswald is a Jing graduate and a leading UK myofascial release specialist. She is the owner of the Pain Care Clinic with branches in Harley Street London, Sussex and Yorkshire. In addition to her clinic work, she runs fascia workshops teaching the public and therapists self-help for chronic pain.
Amanda is the author of Living Pain Free: Healing Chronic Pain with Myofasical Release, an essential self-help guide to treatment of chronic pain based on myofascial release.
This workshop is interactive, so we ask you to wear comfortable clothing to allow free movement, and maybe bring a pillow or bolster. We will be stretching and using myofascial balls, which will involve some floor work on yoga mats. If you would prefer not to work on the floor, then we can give you seated alternatives to these exercises.
We will provide you with a handout containing all the information we cover and are more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
Above all, we plan to have a relaxed and informative space for everyone, and quite possibly a bit of fun too!
Unfortunately the dates for this class have come and gone, but we are working on next year's schedule - so email us and tell us you are interested, so you can be the first to know of the new dates. Can't wait to hear from you.
