Support Group Speaker Rescheduled for Thursday evening April 12
Ridgefield and Newtown-based Psychologist, Dr. Roseann Capanna-Hodge, E.d.D., LPC, BCN, will focus on therapies that support the Central Nervous System in reducing the stress response. Physiologically, the body is designed to deal with stress first and healing second, so getting the CNS to self-regulate is critical for wellness. Dr. Roseann will discuss research-based, holistic therapies, such as, Neurofeedback, Biofeedback, and PEMF used with those afflicted with Neurological Lyme and how symptoms are supported. Check the calendar for time and location.
