Continuing to provide support and tips for self-management, the next event in Pain Connection’s interactive series, “Building Your Toolbox” will take place Tuesday, Oct. 6 at 7:30 pm ET.

This month’s meeting will focus on self-massage with Lee Blank, LMT, RYT200. Blank will teach viewers self-massage techniques, discuss the benefits of self-massage for managing pain, and go over any needed adaptions.

Blank is a licensed massage therapist specializing in chronic pain and oncology massage. Her company, Massage Associates, LLC, offers full-body table massage and massage for patients and families struggling with chronic illnesses. She also is a registered yoga teacher.

The series is unique in that unlike traditional webinars, the event is set up so participants can see, hear, and interact with one another. At each occurrence, an expert speaker presents for a small portion of the time, then does a live demonstration and answers questions directly from attendees.

The conversation is moderated by Gwenn Herman, LCSW, DCW, Pain Connection’s Clinical Director with assistance from long-time support group leader Bobbi Blades.
