I believe that understanding how and why we experience pain, can help enormously in reducing all pain, including chronic pain.
The talks below by Professor Lorimer Moseley and David Butler are fascinating and funny. They clearly and simply explain about how pain comes about, the role of the brain in pain and changes we can make in our life to reduce all pain.
Sensible yoga postures (perhaps even starting with visualisation, then paced appropriately and practiced with awareness), meditation techniques, breathing practices and yoga nidra deep relaxation can be part of the process of reducing chronic pain in our lives. All the classes I teach, take into consideration the principles talked about in the videos below. The Restorative yoga class on Thursdays at 2pm and the Yoga for Backs workshops and course are particularly suitable for people experiencing chronic pain. Please contact me for more information.
