Following a hit-and-run, head-on car collision in 1997, Loolwa went from bad to worse in the medical system. In 2005, she discovered dance as a primary modality of healing herself from pain and disability, and in 2006, she began teaching this method to others, along with lifestyle management strategies and patient care techniques. Through Dancing with Pain®, Loolwa now offers a full line of natural pain relief products and services for healthcare consumers and practitioners.
