A workshop for anyone whose life is affected by Fibromyalgia

Saturday 19th May 2018 10am – 12.30pm

Persistent, widespread pain in our limbs and spine for no obvious reason is a key feature of fibromyalgia. Very often it goes along with discomfort about being touched or sudden pain during ordinary activity when we don’t expect it.

This workshop is for those with fibromyalgia who would like to rediscover their own world of touch through guided, simple and safe exercises.

Together we will explore different aspects of touch and experience gentle, therapeutic touch.

The main objective is to begin to experience touch as something safe and enriching.
The workshop is hands-on and participatory and is open both to people who have fibromyalgia with – or without – their partners.

The workshop is facilitated by Dr Rainer Klocke, Consultant Rheumatologist and Fiona Sim, Registered Nurse.

Cost: £20 per person. £16 for early booking before 5th May 2018.
Maximum number of participants is 8.

For more information and to book a place email fiona.sim@live.co.uk or alternatively call the Elysia Therapeutic Centre directly on 01384 392 072.

Follow on workshops are possible if there is sufficient interest.
