Take Control Of Your Chronic Pain!

Chronic pain is complicated and often misunderstood by most health care professionals.  Doctors have received little to no training in the treatment of chronic pain leaving them with surgery and medication as their only tools.  Clients opting for drug-free solutions tend to get bounced around between physical therapists, massage therapists, chiropractors, acupuncturists, etc. where the focus is on ridding the tissues of any biological dysfunctions such as tightness and adhesions, with little to no long-lasting relief.

Fortunately, research in pain neuroscience has come a long way in understanding how the nervous system creates chronic tension in our bodies.  More importantly, studies have shown that a combination of mind-body education, mindfulness meditation, and bodywork can give people the tools to control their pain and work toward eliminating it!
