Assisted Stretching for Caregivers
This course prepares PCA's and caregivers to do assisted stretching and PNF stretching on their patients. Most patients that require a caregiver are stuck sitting in a chair or lying in bed most of the day. This causes even more body pain and imbalances from muscles becoming tighter and actually pulling on the joints. Assisted stretching sessions can provide pain relief, stress relief, and act as a preventative measure to future problems. This workshop will prepare you to work on a wide range of body types and medical conditions. There is a strong focus on how to use your body in a way to make stretching them out quite effortless and we will go over positions that can be done sitting in a chair and lying in bed or on the floor.
In this two day workshop we will explore a variety of different tools and methods to help people feel their best. This workshop is being held at the Belfast Breeze Inn in Belfast, ME on July 7-8, 2018 from 9am-6pm for $239 and includes lunch.
