Integrated Pain Relief with Joseph Carter L.Ac.

April [email protected]:00 am-4:00 pm


A note on this class from Joseph…

I’m a very lucky person, I found my calling in hands-on natural healing when I was 18 years old – and for the 45+ years since then, I’ve been “workin it” via private practice, teaching, and creating healing arts classes and programs. In that time, through my experience with 1000’s of clients and 10,000’s of sessions I have learned numerous safe and effective ways of using acupoints and plant medicinals (herbal products) to relieve pain and help people change and transform their “Pain Recipe”. 

My Pain RELIEF Recipe revolves around holistic treatment; not just treating the pain of a specific physical location, as in Back Pain, Wrist Pain, Knee Pain, etc., but rather including “the location of the pain” with a broader understanding of a client’s nervous system, mind, body and spirit. I am a champion of treating the part AND the whole, for greater and longer-lasting results. My Integrated Pain Relief class selects and teaches Key Acupoints, Essential Oils, and CBD products that will help YOU treat YOUR client’s pain in a broader and more integrated way. For this class you could easily say I will distill down decades of practice into 6 hours of highly relevant Clinical Tips you can use immediately to Work Smarter, Not Harder, AND Get Great Results. As you incorporate these tools and techniques into your practice, you will find your Results become your best advertisement and best referral source.
