Recovering From Persistent/Chronic Pain
Using principles many Olympic athletes use in their training, we will explore through guided practice how the use of breath, mindful movement, goal setting and visualization can help train your nervous system to “unlearn” persistent pain. Integrating knowledge of the latest pain research with body experience will give you the tools to take control of your pain. Knowledge is power. Change is possible. Wear loose comfortable clothing. NEW! participants will require a one:one session for intake assessment prior to start of course. Instructor: Pamela Holmes Reg. Physiotherapist, RYT200
