Body Wise Connection: Training to Heal, 4/19, 1-5pm
Training to Heal is a course designed to teach instructors the process a breast cancer patient encounters from diagnosis to the “new normal”. In this course we will review breast cancer and the journey that ensues once diagnosis is made. We pause at each potential junction in the journey: diagnosis, surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, lymphedemia, adjuvant therapies, and finally the “new normal”. We explore what each of these moments require medically as well as the physical and emotional implications. At each stage we also explore movements that are designed to restore function, support the individual and restore physical trust and empowerment.
