Skincare Redefined: Applications of Embodiment In Women’s Health (In-Person Only)

Day One: Friday, September 30, 2022 | 4:15 PM - 5:15 PM:

The common denominator amongst the most prevalent skin ailments affecting women’s health is stress. This workshop provides an experiential and evidence-based approach for how mind-body strategies might be used to help reduce disease severity, exacerbation frequency, and adverse effects of treatment in these conditions. Stress has multiple and wide-ranging physiologic and psychologic impacts on skin disease through the effect of locally secreted hormones and mediators that affect skin integrity, inflammation, and healing potential. Although we might talk to our patients about stress management, teaching them HOW to do it is the most powerful prescription typically missing from every skincare regimen. This workshop will teach you simple, effective, and transformative practices you can use starting Monday morning.


Skincare Redefined: Applications of Embodiment In Women’s Health (In-Person Only)

Day Two: Saturday, October 1, 2022 | 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM

The mind and body are an indivisible unit as evidenced by the impact of psychological stress on acne, hair loss, and even barrier function and wound healing. Furthermore, research demonstrates that various skin conditions are associated with increased levels of anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem.
