Free healthcare day

The Anam Cara free Health Care Day will take the format of a forum on pain management and how to transform our experience of it.

The Anam Cara free Health Care Day on May 25 will take the format of a forum on pain management and how to transform our experience of it.

Pain is not only a physical experience; it may manifest on the mental, emotional or spiritual levels as well, which are often interconnected. Because we all respond to pain differently, we can benefit from a variety of pain management approaches.

Nine members of the Anam Cara Health Care Collaboration will share information and/or tools for pain management in a forum format. Morning and afternoon presentations will each be followed by a 30-minute forum for the audience to ask questions.

The Anam Cara Health Collaboration provides an integrative, holistic and collaborative approach to wellness. Anam Cara is Celtic for “soul friend.”

Members of the collaboration seek to co-create with their clients the best possible integrative approach for their needs. This is achieved by referrals and educational events, where the public can meet practitioners to discover resonance — a vitally important factor in the healing process — and to gather information and experience.

The May 25 event takes place at the Windsor Court Club House in Comox. Sixty seats are available, but registration is required.

For more information, to register and for directions, contact Christina via www.relaxandfeelradiant.com or call 250-890-9008 between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m., Tuesdays to Saturdays.

Specify your interest in the morning, afternoon or all-day sessions. Indicate if wheelchair access or disabled parking is needed.

Donations for the day’s event will be gratefully received on behalf of Comox Valley Hospice Society and the SPCA. Several Anam Cara practitioners have donated door prizes for draws at the end of the morning and afternoon sessions.
