Pain Management or Pain reduction?
My aim is to support you to reduce your pain and not simply to manage it. Pain management implies that the pain has to remain forever. I don't believe that it does.
Up to date research demonstrates the importance of having an understanding of pain science to reduce levels of chronic pain. I can increase your understanding of how your pain has become amplified and of how the brain can change to reduce your pain.
Reflective practices and guided reappraisal of pain sensations can help you to overcome the fear of movement which may currently cause pain. This can help you to increase activity levels improving your quality of life.
I will also teach you breathing exercises and relaxation practices which are a key part to reducing pain.
Individuals living with many chronic pain conditions, including Fibromyalgia and Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, can benefit from pain reduction techniques.
If you are living with Arthritis I can help you to manage pain and inflammation using additional techniques such as joint protection education, splinting and flare-up management.
