Frequently asked questions

When are the sessions?  How long are they?

Session One is on October 8th.  Session Two on the 15th.  Session Three on the 22nd. Every session will be held at Integrative Yoga Therapy in Easley and they start at 10:30am.  All sessions are scheduled for 90-minutes.

Are there restrictions to who should try what?

Great question!  You're right - not every tool is for every body.  Dr. Melissa will include the risks, benefits and recommendations for each and every tool.  But then it's up to you to listen to your body and make your own decisions...or to talk with your healthcare provider.
