Now if you’ve been keeping up with Portland Pedal Power blog a lot, you know we love to have a ton of fun with our topics and writing style. We also love to inform you of great vendors, restaurants, and rad bike stuff around Portland. Today we’re going to tackle something on the more serious side though. We’re here to inform you about wholistic healthcare and how it can ease the recovery process for cancer patience going through treatment.
For our more regular followers, you may remember a couple months ago, we wrote about The Wellspring School in Portland and their classes for all. For a short recap, The Wellspring School is a school for wholistic natural healing arts. Their practice ranges from Amma Therapy to Meditation to Wholistic Nutrition with a goal to bring better, NATURAL, health to Portland.
Well they’re back, this time with a very important class that could be relevant to any one of us. Do you, or someone you know, have somebody that you care about, are close to, even love that are going through treatment for cancer? One of the worst feelings is that of feeling helpless as you watch someone in discomfort or pain. The idea that you can’t do anything to help them other than hold their hand and be there for their comfort. Well now you have an option to get more involved. You can finally do more to ease the pain of recovery. The Wellspring School is hosting a workshop called “Caring for Cancer - A Wholistic Approach” in June to try and inform people of how Eastern style medicinal approaches to illness and recovery can help relieve the side effects and pain that Western style medicine can bring on in the process of curing disease.
We highly encourage you to check out the workshop if you want to become more involved in caring for cancer patience, whether they are those who are close to you, or even not so close. This workshop has our PPP stamp of approval. For more information, see below. (more…)
