featured event graphicDescription:
Whether acute or chronic, pain is widespread, affecting millions of people each year. Conventional treatments alone have done little to alleviate the burden of pain necessitating a need for complementary modalities to help address multiple domains of the pain experience.

The 7th Annual Integrative Healthcare Conference is an interactive, experiential learning opportunity where participants will discover a variety of modalities that can be incorporated into treatment plans for patients with acute or chronic pain syndromes. Attendees will explore evidence-based techniques, experience therapies, view demonstrations, learn mechanisms of action and in many cases how to perform the technique and teach the patient how to self-manage pain using mind-body practices.

Coming to the Integrative Healthcare Conference? Make plans to stay for the Holistic Nurse Certification Prep Course!
