A Creative Approach to Palliative Care

Location: AOMA Graduate School Classroom E1 4701 West Gate Blvd Austin, TX 78745

From: April 18, 2015 at 9:00am to: 12:00pm


Pam has innovated new ways of working with clients in palliative care. She has discovered that a compassionate combination of discussion,  Qi exercises, and acupressure help  ease both physical and emotional pain.  Pam will also show effective techniques for a client's feet and hands, and similar techniques that can be shared usefully with families, for hospital, home, and hospice care. This practical workshop will be helpful for Acupuncturists, Asian Bodywork Therapists, Massage Therapists, Physical and Occupational Therapists, RNs, and MDs. Though the workshop is aimed at health professionals, we also welcome anyone involved in long term care of family members.

Hands-On work will be done on tables and in chairs, so participants are encouraged to wear loose comfy clothing, and to bring their own sheets and pillows.

PDA points will be offered to anyone renewing NCCAOM Dipl. Status, and anyone requiring CEUs for Texas LMT renewals.
