At SOPHIA Natural Health Center in Brookfield, practitioners employ the ancient wisdom of Chinese medicine combined with the modern science of naturopathic care to create a natural health program that is patient-specific. The group’s goal is to improve patient health and educate them on all the factors that influence health, wellness and disease. To that end, the Center will host a series of classes, open to the public, in the next couple of months.

From noon to 1pm on January 18, the Center will host a hands-on workshop on “Trigger Point/Acupressure for Pain and Stress Relief.” Attendees will learn what trigger points are, how to locate them and how to relieve them quickly and easily, to ease the symptoms of ailments including fibromyalgia, osteo-arthritis, neck and low back pain and PMS.  

From noon to 1pm on January 25, you can attend the lecture “Natural Solutions to Eliminate Migraine Headaches.” The discussion will cover common causes of headaches and how to prevent them from returning, natural therapies such as acupuncture, pain relief supplements and dietary suggestions, and three tips to achieve permanent migraine relief.

From noon to 1pm on February 8, discover the answer to the question, “What is Your Chinese Medicine Pattern Diagnosis?” Learn the importance of pattern diagnosis, how it is determined and what it means for your health. It will include demonstrations of pulse taking, tongue observations and more.
