We live in a very active state and for good reason, peering to the west at the Rocky Mountains it’s easy to understand why so many people are inspired to explore the beautiful landscape. Whether you are an active individual or simply someone who is looking to gain a more holistic perspective on musculoskeletal health, this is the class for you!
This class will be an introduction into how to utilize herbal medicine to support our musculoskeletal system from injury to general wear and tear. Herbs can not only be effective in managing pain but due to their broad-spectrum actions they support our body’s natural ability to heal and recover! A comprehensive understanding of nutrition and its role in prevention of musculoskeletal injury is also key, this class will also discuss how everyday healthy habits can not only prevent injury but can maximize the body’s strength, flexibility, and endurance.
