Tuesday, August 18, 2020
Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (TOS) is a common complaint with many imposters. For some it manifests as carpal tunnel symptoms, throbbing and pain in the arm or elbow, upper shoulder pain, and so on. Learn a simple and easy protocol to support healing of this vital area using positions of comfort. Of course, we will also look at the anatomy and physiology of the area, as well as discuss this common issue.

Ed certified in Integrative Breathwork and Soul-Based Psychology through the Eupsychia Institute in 2006, and in early 2007 certified in Clinical Hypnosis through the International Medical and Dental Hypnotherapy Association.

In addition to working in close protocol with a chiropractor, Ed presents workshops in advanced massage techniques and breathwork. He also does one-on-one mentoring and tutoring. Ed believes learning should be fun and active and to this end has studied Brain Gym, which uses simple movements to stimulate and restore the innate ability to learn and function with curiosity and joy.
