Course Description

Have you ever felt like you can’t carry on ? Are you burnout, exhausted and overwhelmed by life ? Are you embarrassed with where your life is at right now ? 

Cameron began practicing acupuncture in the mid 1980’s. She has witnessed firsthand the dramatic rise in mental health problems, burnout and exhaustion. This course was created to empower people to restore their basic body-mind balance and get back on the pony. The content introduces self-care for healthcare, acknowledging constitutional strengths/weaknesses, and Restorative Yoga practices. 


Constitution

Like a car our bodies need servicing, regular fuel top-ups, and ongoing maintenance. As with cars some bodies/vehicles are built for high performance and some are not! We all have unique constitutional strengths, inherited at birth, that influence our health. Nourishing Roots is a self-healing prescription which connects us to what is natural.
