Description

Experiencing physical pain is part of life. However, for some, this experience becomes extremely debilitating and persistent. When pain becomes severe enough to significantly impact physical function, mobility and quality of life, these individuals ultimately find their way into our clinics as patients and clients.

Patients arrive with the objective of “fix” and “eliminate” pain. Emphasizing direct treatment and elimination of chronic pain often opens a portal to exhaustion, frustration and even increased pain intensity. The paradigm shift exits in recognition we cannot necessarily control the pain which enters our life; however, we do have control over how we relate to pain. Embracing age old principles of mindfulness and meditation, we have the tools to shift our relationship with chronic, somatic pain. Additionally, mindful movement including Tai Chi, Qi Gong and Yoga further enhance active pain management. This experiential session combines proven methods with modern science to provide a multitude of health and wellness benefits. Allow both body and mind to explore the science of pain relief strategies with immediate clinical application for improved outcomes.
