Dr. Richard P. Brown will teach you how to dissolve pain using regulated breathing practices combined with movement, visualization, sound, and Open Focus Attention Training. The gentle movement and breathing practices activate anti-pain, anti-inflammation, and anti-stress effects of the parasympathetic nervous system. Through Open Focus Attention Training, developed by Dr. Les Fehmi, the mind learns how to dissolve emotional and physical pain. Dr. Brown’s unique integrative approach has brought relief to thousands of people suffering from physical injuries, cancer, toxic exposures, military service, inflammatory bowel disease, arthritis, and many other illnesses.
This workshop is suitable for professional healthcare providers as well as healthcare consumers dealing with their own pain.
