This workshop is primarily experiential with explanations and Q&A built in. We will begin with a delicious lunch of foods that promote cleansing. For the rest of the afternoon and evening, we will explore techniques and protocols to aid the body in elimination of toxins. Some of the techniques we will cover include rebounding, movement and castor oil packs to move the lymph, naturopathic hydrotherapy to support the digestive and lymphatic systems, and learning how to make your own cleansing foods and incorporate these techniques into your life. We want you to have a hands-on experience of self-care cleansing. The systems that we will be addressing include the digestive, lymph, respiratory, skin, mind and subtle body/energy channels.

Lunch provided
