Pain Free Massage Workshop Retreat
About This Event
Pain Free Massage workshop May 4, 2019-Sedona, AZ- 9am-7pm 8 Ce’s
Pain Free Massage will be introduced using Deep Tissue Techniques and understanding Nociceptors and nociception. Pain free herbs and essential oils will be introduced and utilized during this course where great results are achieved in a single professional session. We have learned that using particular myofascial techniques together with the proper client education, a pain free massage takes the place of multiple deep tissue modalities. Due to the relief and comfort provided to the client, they will keep returning for more.
We will be utilizing CBD oil as an optional topical application.
Some information on the Benefits of CBD Oil: (contact info blocked)#section3
Its uses are incredible and can be traced back thousands of years. There are various species of cannabis, and cannabidiol (CBD), is one that has been gaining a ton of popularity.People are still often cautious of using CBD oils as they sometimes confuse CBD with THC, but there are actually stark differences. While THC is known to get people high or alter their state of mind, CBD does neither. It is not psychoactive and also has more medical use than THC.”CBD stands out because it is both nonintoxicating and displays a broad range of medicinal applications, including anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-anxiety, and analgesic (pain relief) properties,” Dr. Blake Pearson, founder of Greenly Medical Consulting and practicing medical doctor in Ontario, Canada, specializing in cannabinoid medicine, However, certain levels of THC can be present when using CBD products as it can make the beneficial properties of it even more potent.
Benefits of CBD Oils
People with arthritis, broken bones, sports injuries, overworked muscles from working out, neurological disorders, and those who want to relieve anxiety can benefit from CBD oil treatments. According to Dr. Pearson, there’s also a growing body of evidence supporting claims that CBD has been shown to improve symptoms related to “inflammation, including inflammatory bowel disease (for example Crohn’s and colitis), rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and sports and occupational injuries causing chronic pain, like tendinitis,” mood disorders, and more. He’s seen patients in his clinic find great improvements in their pain after starting cannabinoid therapy.
Because of its many benefits-CBD has been taking the healthcare and beauty industries by storm in recent years. In fact, CBD is being used in special treatments at several spas across the country — and for good reason. While CBD in spa treatments is not as closely monitored as treatments by a licensed physician over a period of time, it can be marginally beneficial during such things as massages. The incorporation of CBD into spa treatments has been shown to reduce inflammation, relieve and ease pain, and destress, according to Anna Pamula, owner of Renu Day Spa, who was the first to introduce CBD treatments in Illinois over four years ago. Her salon in Illinois offers an ever-changing menu based on careful research of cannabis-infused massage therapy and other treatments with cannabis oils and products. She is very careful about sourcing the best, organic products without chemicals for her clients as they are the most beneficial.
The use of CBD oils in spas can be “great for musculoskeletal and joint pain relief,” Dr. Mark Rosenbloom, MD, MBA, told POPSUGAR, “because it would really get into the tissues.” He usually recommends CBD for localized pain and has seen very positive results from it. Dr. Rosenbloom has also seen a decrease in nausea, inflammation, and oxidative stress in patients when using CBD.
“What we are doing when using CBD is using the body’s own system and just augmenting it a bit,” Dr. Rosenbloom said. Our bodies naturally produce endogenous cannabinoids, which are the same structure of plant cannabinoids. We have two receptors for cannabinoids, but CBD doesn’t act on them directly. Rather, it seems to encourage the body to use more of its own cannabinoids.
The plant cannabinoids last longer in the body because our bodies aren’t used to breaking them down. “Over 1,000 genes in our body are affected by CBD. They are essential to human life. The body would not function well without endogenous cannabinoids,” Dr. Rosenbloom added.
In spas, CBD is used as tinctures, massage oils, and is infused in lotions and creams. The products will not get you high but are applied to the skin during a massage and can reduce pain, inflammation, and much more.
Side effects of CBD?
A study conducted by the World Health Organization stated that there is no evidence correlating any public-health-related problems with the use of pure CBD. Dr. Pearson added that CBD “is generally well-tolerated and has a good safety profile,” and the study stated that “CBD does not induce physical dependence and is not associated with potential abuse.” However, because it is an entirely nonbenign substance and there could be a chance of developing contact dermatitis or an allergic reaction since it’s applied topically, Dr. Pearson recommends consulting with your physician first. He also recommends those interested in seeking the benefits of CBD to work closely with a medical practitioner to understand their own underlying conditions and develop a bespoke treatment plan with a personalized dosing regimen.

This CEU retreat included yoga, meditation, healthy food, learning, multiple opportunities to practice new skills, info on how to incorporate this modality into my private practice, and lots of laughter and positive energy. I left with many new skills, and renewed energy levels. So glad to have come to this workshop. Thank you for teaching.

The Cleanse Program created by Lorrie Lawrence, that is administered by the Sedona Wellness team, literally brought me from the depths of despair after caretaking and the loss of a loved one to a freedom that my body and spirit had not known since my youth. I experienced Panchakarma (PK) treatments before but never in such an immersive retreat environment. For me, the key was being open to receive. The program began before I arrived with the opportunity to evaluate and share, via a very brief survey, where I was at physically, mentally and emotionally at the time. Lorrie takes a true wholistic approach. Each Cleanse Program is designed for the individual receiving it with a number of practitioners involved. I spent five days receiving treatments and nourishment for every part of my physical body as well as counseling sessions and journaling suggestions to begin to heal my grief. I originally found Lorrie when I was sick during a holiday visit and searched for an Ayurvedic Doctor. Lorrie has assembled a team that provides care in a wide range of modalities. I have continued to seek medical treatment both at Sedona Wellness and Pagosa Wellness several times a year ever since. Both locations are in serene vortex physical settings with water, red rocks and hot springs nearby which embody the essence of wholistic healing. Experiencing a Cleanse Program at Sedona or Pagosa Wellness is a bucket list item I wish everyone could have the blessing to receive.

One of the best healing experiences of my life was Panchakarma by Lorrie Lawrence at Sedona Wellness. I embarked on this journey at a time when I wanted to reset my health. That was precisely what was provided, a re-boot. I really appreciated the time that Lorrie took to discuss important knowledge about my health at that moment and moving forward into the future. This gave me a pathway to implement a healthier diet and lifestyle. There are different components that make up this healing and restorative process. My favorite of the 5 Panchakarma therapies were the Urdvartana, Swedana, and Shirodhara. The Urdvartana or lymphatic massage was off the charts! The Swedana or herbal steam bath was so lovely and relaxing. The Shirodhara, herbalized warm oil gently poured on the third eye, put me in one of the most profound meditative states of my life! The elimination of toxins from your body can be a challenging experience. However, this cleanse was different than any other I have tried. I found Sedona Wellness Panchakarma to be the most supportive, nurturing, and renewing cleanse I have ever experienced. I received a restoration of balance, mental clarity, and a big improvement in my health and wellness. I felt that my immune system become stronger, my energy levels went higher, and my relaxation became deeper. If you can make some time to invest in your health I can't say enough amazing things about Sedona Wellness. I am so very appreciative to have gone though the Panchakarma therapies with Lorrie and Sedona Wellness. Thank you, with deep gratitude. Heather Malloy Sedona, Arizona

My experience at Sedona Wellness exceeded my expectations. Lorrie knows the very best way to conduct a cleanse and I had complete confidence in all her treatments. They work! I would recommend her cleanse program to anyone who is serious about doing it on the highest level. The entire time I was at the retreat center I was thinking "Why is this not the most popular retreat center in Arizona?" It is on sacred land, private, surrounded by breath-taking views and hiking trails, cozy, beautiful, supplies great organic food and is staffed by the best practitioners anywhere in the world. GREAT place for any kind of retreat!

We met Lorrie years ago when searching for a massage therapist. We had just retired to Sedona and I had chronic back pain from 20 years of working in a hospital. I had been receiving massages for about the last 10 of those 20 years in an effort to help me deal with the pain. After my first massage with Lorrie , I knew that I had struck gold. She has an amazing reportoir of styles and techniques that, when coupled with her energy and passion for healing, has finally given me relief from years of pain. In addition to massage work, I have also had the opportunity to experience other modalities that Lorrie, an Ayurvedic practitioner, offers at her facilities. One of those offerings that I decided to do was a very thorough cleanse that required daily sessions for a week. She was very discrete, encouraging and sensitive to my needs. I felt completely comfortable throughout the process, and had a renewed sense of energy and health when finished. We have visited Lorrie at both of her facilities, Sedona Wellness and Pagosa Wellness. The facilities are clean and professionally run, yet warm and inviting at the same time. Lorrie is constantly challenging herself to learn new techniques for assisting her patients on their journey towards a healthier, more pain-free life. Lorrie is a teacher's teacher, a therapist's therapist, and I would have given her 10 stars had it been possible.
