This class is not intended to replace skilled treatment by a licensed professional, but to give you the basic skills to help with a variety of common complaints of discomfort experienced on occasion in active adults. If you suffer from any chronic pains that require extensive treatment, this class would be a wonderful adjunct to regular treatment, but not a sole source of relief. If you are experiencing any acute pain, this class is not intended to provide treatment. An evaluation by a licensed provider would be more appropriate and can be scheduled in addition to, or in lieu of this class.
