I've had many questions backed with a sincere desire to learn how to care for one's chronic pain & inflammation. Trust me when I say, I share your concern, my friends. I too have sought out relief for inflammation, from a fractured sacral plate to persistent pressure-pain in my neck and inner ears that can lead me to tears.
As a therapeutic bodyworker, it is my passion to give my best effort in assisting people in pain relief and relaxation. Do I have all the answers? That is a resounding NO. I do, however, have almost 20 years of education & experience, so that is handy :-) In my ebook, Temple Therapy, I explain some of the bodywork techniques that can be extremely helpful to balancing pain and residual side effects. I also cover essential oils and supplements that having specific properties to protect the body from inflammation, as well as bring support to the muscular and nervous systems.
