Lunch & Learn Series & Workshops

 

We would love the opportunity to bring one of our speakers to your team as part of our educational outreach program. We will take a few minutes to explain what Opti-Life is, our mission, offer comped access to our facility for 30 days to all of your staff, and then share the information. We will end with a short question and answer period. All of this takes about 45 minutes plus 15 min for Q & A. Depending on the size of the group we can also bring a healthy snack based on one of our SlimFit recipes.

Healthy Living to 100 60 min. Learn about living healthfully and minimizing our body’s decline as we age, taking preventative measures now. Most of us might be afraid to live to 100 years old because of the fear of a decreased quality of life or living with aches and pains. But if we could feel good and still do the things we love to do like playing with our grandchildren, then I’m sure most of us would want to stick around. What we don’t realize is that arthritis is not inevitable. It can be avoided if we make the right choices now. We have the ability to age well despite our genetics. Healthy lifestyle choices are key to not only live well now but in our later years too. This class will pin point the major culprits contributing to bad health and illuminate the tiny tweaks you can make now to make huge changes to your elder years. Presented by Dr. Traci Granfield.

Honey, could you rub my back? 60 min. Trigger points are muscle spasms that result from nerve irritation near the muscles involved. They may feel like hard knots within taut bands of muscle fibers. Common trigger points are located along the spine in the neck, shoulders, upper back, lower back, gluteals and even the temporomandibular joint. Trigger point therapy is a form of massage that holds pressure over the small area of muscle for 15-20 seconds to reduce the local constriction.

In this class, you will learn how to feel for and identify trigger points on a partner. Given some coaching, you will develop the right amount of pressure and technique to release trigger points. This class will be informative and fun! Teach your husband, wife, partner, or best friend how to relieve your tension- Win Win!
