focus on living well
COMING IN 2019
You have amazing strengths, you have amazing potential! Let’s tap into it and create the healthy habits necessary to move beyond pain and into a more meaningful and fulfilling life.
Most of the people who come to see me have a long story of pain. Always in months and often in years. Their torrid tales usually involve a life that is dominated by pain. They've often seen a plethora of doctors and therapists but the outcome has been disappointing. And with each failed attempt to heal the pain, their expectations for improvement and belief in their ability to feel well diminishes.
A simple rule in life that we all know is that what we focus on, we get more of. This is why our main focus with the Move Beyond Pain Program is on living well. With this in mind, we'll focus on using and building the strengths and resources that you already have to achieve your vision of wellness. The more we focus on developing your skills of well-being and your self-awareness — and nourish what's already working — the more the underlying reasons for your pain will fade away.
My holistic perspective merges the science of the body with the integrated understanding of the role of movement, mindset, self-awareness, and bio-individuality. And by merging the best of the Feldenkrais Method® with Functional Medicine focused Health Coaching, we'll lay the foundation for lasting change...
Discover how your movement habits are contributing to your pain and how to move without pain and more ease. This is more than just eliminating bio-mechanical stress, it's getting to the heart of how you embody yourself in motion.
Certain lifestyle habits and choices over time result in metabolic imbalances which promote a more inflammatory environment. I'll help you to figure out how to make the diet and lifestyle changes that can reduce metabolic inflammation.
Knowledge + Understanding
Knowledge is power! We'll dive into some of the current theories on complex pain. Don't worry, I make sure these bits are digestible. Understanding your pain can be a crucial part of transforming your fears into action.
When pain occurs, the brain interprets and modulates these sensations like volume controls for the pain, by dialing it louder or quieting it down. You'll learn effective ways to control and re-regulate the volume controls.
A mindset is a belief that biases how you think, feel, and act. You'll learn about how your mindset impacts your physiology, your choices, and your behaviors. And you'll discover how to shift your mindset for good.
Our bodies are designed to respond to our feelings. We'll explore how your emotions contribute to pain. You'll learn how to become aware of emotional triggers and how to reverse the pain brought on by emotions.
The work that we'll do together is not meant to take the place of working with a trusted medical professional, but rather to complement that work and help you to better implement the treatment plan you’ve been given. Throughout this process, I’ll help you to make permanent changes that reduce your suffering and create a life that is full of health, hope, and happiness.
