Pain Care Yoga for Ongoing Neck Pain

Neck pain is one of the most common types of chronic pain. It is a condition that affects 3 out 5 adults in the US.

Even over the counter pain relievers do little to give you relief.

This is a comprehensive process that will challenge you and excite you. You will learn some amazing things about your body, your nervous system and your brain. You will learn to appreciate the complexity of your issues and be given tools to heal. Most of all, you will get your life back. 

60 Minutes to Less Neck Stiffness and Pain

This is a free practice to focus your attention on the pelvis and spine rather than the neck to keep things soft and comfortable. Discover how movement is translated from your pelvis and the importance of the eyes in healthy neck function.

How is this program different than what I have tried before?

Pain Care Yoga for Persistent Neck Pain is a wholistic approach to developing a pain care program that is as unique as you are.
