  • Focus on 5 | Week 5: Touch - Massage & Therapeutic Touch

    Tuesday, May 24, 2022 at 05:00 PM Eastern Time (US & Canada)

    We’ll explore different sensations and types of touch and how they support us in a variety of ways. Content will vary for caregivers (simple massage techniques to relieve stress) and individuals with FOP (assistance dogs and energy medicine techniques)

    ----------

    Focus on 5: Resilient Living Sensory Self-Care Series

    Sight, smell, sound, taste and touch. These five senses bring so much to our lives. Being aware of our senses can help us build a practice of self-care which can be easily become a part of our existing daily routine and habits.

    Join IFOPA Family Services Manager Hope Newport, FOP community members and special guest speakers for a 6-week series where we’ll focus on the five senses and how we can use them to create a habit of self-care to help get us through the tough times.
