For many, feeling better requires a supportive alliance with a caring guide or coach. After years of unsatisfactory results from various doctors, chiropractors, acupuncturists and massage therapists, many have come to believe that there is no solution to their pain problems. Each practitioner has a role in your recovery, but none can ultimately do the healing for you. The most important person in a healing process, is the person doing the healing.
The most recent and evidence based model for pain tells us that chronic pain is so much more than just tissue damage. In other words, pain doesn’t happen in a body part, it happens in a self. My job as a pain care coach is to help you discover which elements of self you would like to work with. For many, the way in is movement; gentle, graded exposure for neuromuscular education and tissue remodeling. For others it is contemplative practices to restore a connection to the body and healthy nervous system versatility. We know from science that most people suffering from chronic pain will need a multi faceted approach that recognizes the complexity of pain and the destruction it can cause.
Pain care coaching is an opportunity to build an alliance with an experienced pain care expert. Your process will be unique and empowering. You will discover amazing things about yourself and be delighted by the apparent simplicity of interventions. You will learn about the complexity of your issues and understand why previous treatments were only partially successful. Of all the systems used to treat chronic pain, none has as much to offer the person in pain as a skillfully applied Yoga for pain care program.
