Pain Connection continues its interactive series, “Building Your Toolbox,” this Tuesday, July 7 at 7:30 pm ET. The meeting will focus on acupressure with Lisa Marie Price. In private practice in Chinese Medicine for 25 years, Lisa Marie Price is a national board-certified acupuncturist (NCCAOM) and received her master’s degree in Acupuncture at the Traditional Acupuncture Institute. For eight years, Price served as faculty and Dean of Students at the Tai Sophia Institute for the Healing Arts, but now devotes herself full-time to her patients. As a founding member of U.S. Pain’s National Coalition for Chronic Pain Providers and Professionals, Price advocates both locally and nationally for improved services and treatment options for chronic pain patients.
“The series has allowed our members to work with experts and provide them support as they learn new treatment options,” says Pain Connection Clinical Director Gwenn Herman, LCSW, DCSW. “In the upcoming session, Lisa Marie will be teaching us how to use acupressure points on our hands, ears, and feet to help lower pain levels and reduce stress, anxiety, and depression.”
The series is done as a videoconference using the Zoom platform. Participants will hear from Price and then have a chance to interact with her directly and ask questions. The conversation will be guided by Herman and long-time support group leader, Bobbi Blades.
