Ravenswood Chiropractic and Wellness Center in Chicago will be hosting its free fibromyalgia workshop, Overcoming Fibromyalgia Naturally for people suffering from the condition on May 1st at their office located in Andersonville. The workshop will include a discussion of natural treatment for Fibromyalgia and a demonstration of acupressure points that attendees can do on their own to alleviate symptoms.
Ravenswood Chiropractic & Wellness Center, a group of experienced healthcare practitioners specializing in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Chiropractic, Physical Therapy, and Functional Medicine, has recently announced that they will be conducting a free workshop to spread awareness about the condition and its diagnosis and treatment for fibromyalgia according to Traditional Chinese Medicine. The workshop is designed for people who are suffering from fibromyalgia or are close to someone who is. It will teach them about alternate treatment options, such as acupuncture, herbal medicine, and massage, as well as provide free demonstrations on acupressure to relieve symptoms of fibromyalgia.
Treating Fibromyalgia With Traditional Chinese Medicine
Ravenswood Chiropractic’s fibromyalgia workshop presents an excellent opportunity for people to learn about fibromyalgia and how it is treated under Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Since western medicine fails to explain the exact cause of fibromyalgia, diagnosing and treating it is difficult. On the other hand, TCM uses the age-old knowledge of the five elements, eight parameters, meridians and organs systems to address not only the symptoms but also the underlying causes of fibromyalgia.
“TCM views the body as a tree,” explains presenter Sunae Son, LA.c. from Ravenswood Chiropractic’s fibromyalgia workshop. “The symptoms can be seen on the leaves, but the cause of the disease is deep down within the trunk. We want to treat the root cause of the disease. We want to treat the trunk. By doing this, the whole tree gets better. The leaves become healthy, and the symptoms improve.”
Free DIY Acupressure Demonstration
Fibromyalgia has a range of debilitating symptoms, including widespread pain, fatigue, and cognitive issues. These can pose to be hurdles in the patient’s daily life. With the help of Ravenswood Chiropractic’s fibromyalgia workshop, attendees can learn acupressure that they can use to alleviate these symptoms on their own and significantly improve the quality of their life.

Instead of trying to fit your surroundings, arrange your surroundings to fit you! That’s what ergonomics is all about and those are some of the skills you will learn in this free workshop.

When you try to arrange yourself to fit your surroundings or your workspace, you may find that you contort your body a bit. These seemingly minor compensations add up and can gradually take a toll on your body. You may find that this leaves you with a sore back, neck pain, shoulder pain, arm pain, wrist pain or eye strain.

By attending this free workshop, you’ll learn to identify risk factors that can lead to pain, and assess your workspace from an ergonomic perspective to reduce risk factors with affordable quick fixes ...and long term solutions to help prevent pain.

All are welcome to attend, however, seating is limited, so please register in advance at the events section of our website www.RennWellness.com or by calling us at 773.878.7330.
