Invisible Illness Education for Health Professionals
Experience an embodied training approach for chronic, invisible illnesses involving persistent fatigue and pain.
We empower health professionals with evidence-based education and strategies to holistically help people living with ME/CFS, POTS/OI, Fibromyalgia, Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, and Hypermobility Spectrum Disorders.
Through years of our own clinical practice, researching, reading, mentoring, and inquiring with peers and professionals, we have immersed ourselves in this fascinating area of health.
We know where the challenge areas are, what to look out for, what language to use, and ultimately how to maximise outcomes.
The result is a supportive educational framework, which will leave you feeling ready to facilitate true change in your clients.
You will discover:
