Last updated 2/14/2019 at 9:39am

FALLBROOK – The Fallbrook Parkinson Support Group will hold their monthly meeting Friday, Feb. 22, from 10 am to noon. The meeting will be held in the fellowship hall of Christ the King Lutheran Church, 1620 S. Stage Coach Lane. The meetings are held the fourth Friday of each month.

This month’s speaker, Roeshan Shadravan, Ph.D., is osteopathic manual practitioner of integrative functional medicine, cellular nutrition, detox, natural pain resolution and brain and gut health. Shadravan is a performance, movement and manual sports medicine practitioner and educator with a focus on pain management, neural communication, nutrition, cellular health and detox, biomechanics, breathwork, fascia and joint health. Shadravan also holds a master’s degree in athletic therapy and is currently completing her second doctorate in naprapathic medicine.

In addition to being featured in the Huffington Post, numerous publications and podcasts, Shadravan is featured in the MELT Method self-care videos, teaches internationally and assists in teacher trainings. Over the past two decades, Shadravan has worked with a broad range of clientele from Olympians and corporate executives to infants, sports teams, professional athletes, seniors, teens and everything in between.

Using a full spectrum of therapeutic techniques to address the root cause of disharmony and miscommunication in the brain, nervous system, joints, muscles and the connective tissue system of the body, Shadravan works to restore balance and neural communication, remove stress and relieve pain in the body improving quality of life, posture and performance.

Shadravan’s motto in life is, “You deserve to feel your best and keep doing what you love in happiness and good health for a lifetime.”

She has trained, mentored and studied globally with world-renowned movement specialists, manual therapists, fascia researchers, osteopaths and naturopathic doctors.

A therapy of particular interest in approaching Parkinson’s disease is visceral manipulation, an osteopathic technique used to locate and solve problems throughout the body. It encourages the body’s own natural healing mechanisms to improve the functioning of organs, dissipate the negative effects of stress, enhance mobility of the musculoskeletal system through the connective tissue attachments and influence general metabolism health.

Visceral manipulation assists functional and structural imbalances throughout the body including musculoskeletal, vascular, nervous, urogenital, respiratory, digestive and lymphatic dysfunction. It evaluates and treats the dynamics of motion and suspension in relation to organs, membranes, fascia and ligaments. Visceral manipulation increases proprioceptive communication within the body, thereby revitalizing a person and relieving symptoms of pain, dysfunction and poor posture.

Experts estimate that upwards of 90 percent of disease is stress-related. And perhaps nothing ages people faster, internally and externally, than high stress. Bodywork is an effective tool for managing this stress, which translates into: decreased anxiety, enhanced sleep quality, greater energy, improved concentration, increased circulation and reduced fatigue.

A time of sharing, coffee and refreshments will follow the program. The meeting is held in support of persons with Parkinson’s disease, care partners and people interested in improving the world of those affected by Parkinson’s disease.
