April 12 Hamilton Concussion Support Group: The Use and Benefit of Essential Oils with Management of Concussion Symptoms

April 12, 2018 – 6:00-7:30 PM
Guest Speaker: Jennifer Bitner
Topic: The Use and Benefit of Essential Oils with Management of Concussion Symptoms


Ms. Jennifer Bitner is a proud ambassador for positive mental wellness. She is a Corporate Wellness Trainer, Coach & Speaker, TV Personality on Healthy Minds and Educator with dōTERRA®.

Ms. Bitner has had a passion for learning about the human mind and discovering the “why” behind our pattern making for many years. This passion further developed as she trekked through her own decade long journey dealing with severe anxiety and panic attacks, which inspired her to start My Mind Fitness in 2012. What started as a blog website on the importance of positive mental health and her personal journey, is now a platform for transforming the lives of others starting their own Mind Fitness journey.

These interests and more have led her to become an educator on natural health alternatives and explore the opportunities available to us to restore the balance between our minds, bodies and spirit. Educational development includes:  Natural Health Educator (Essential Oils), Certified Professional Coach (CPC), Neuro-Linguistic Programming Practitioner (NLP) Reiki Practitioner (Canadian Reiki Association) and ArōmaTouch Technique Certified.

Ross Rehab at Anatomy 101, presented by Hamilton Medical Legal Society

The Ross Rehabilitation team returned for a second year to Anatomy 101 presented by the Hamilton Medical Legal Society. The anatomy lab session, held on February 8, 2018, focused on education of the shoulder, spine, neck and knee.

Cheryl Wylie and Brian Oderkirk presented on “Physiotherapy Initial Assessment” for each of these anatomical areas, with focus towards assessment of a WAD III and upper extremity neuroscan, lumbar disc dysfunction identification, rotator cuff tears, and ACL and PCL testing. Demonstrations were provided, which gave participants an opportunity to see specific testing that patients undergo in a physiotherapy examination.

We would like to thank the Hamilton Medical Legal Society for having us! We look forward to further collaboration and education in the Hamilton community. If you would like to see further events being held by the Hamilton Medical Legal Society, please visit www.hamiltonmedicallegal.com.
