Description

The global pandemic has brought about many changes to society that affect our body, mind, and spirit.

Many have become less physically active, living more sedentary lifestyles. At the same time, high levels of stress and anxiety are affecting mental wellbeing. An unhealthy combination with a multitude of negative physical, mental, and emotional consequences.

Integrative medicine — a lifestyle medicine for prevention and wellness — focuses on healing the whole person and includes all aspects of our lifestyle.

Betsy Shandalov is an Occupational Therapist, certified yoga therapist, Reiki practitioner, and Ayurvedic wellness coach. She will share her tried and true techniques using integrative medicine to heal trauma.

In this experiential session, you’ll learn the science of Ayurveda, including diet, lifestyle, breathing techniques, meditation, and yoga, and how these hands-on treatment modalities help patients manage physical pain and bring balance back to mind and spirit. With a focus on the latest research on the integrative medicine techniques for pain management and building the immune system, you will learn practical techniques to assist you and your patients with ways to maximize health, decrease pain, and increase longevity.
