Pain and Nervous System Education

Outlined here is one therapeutic breathing practice that can help you get in touch with your essential breath, also referred to as Diaphragmatic Breathing or Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilizing Breath. Take your time with it and observe how this practice affects you.

Seated Alternate Nostril Breathing

The breath grounds, connects and heals the nervous system and breathing practices should be the first thing prescribed by doctors to all their patients.

I am pleased to share some of the leading research and education on pain. If you have chronic or persistent pain then it is prudent that you educate yourself. Research shows that those that get education to understand the nervous system and how it relates to pain get better, faster.

Getting out of pain requires a multi-faceted approach involving your mind, body and spirit.
