Pain

Join me and Tara Larkin for three mini retreats over three months to support a deep dive into what limits you. Your hosts will guide you through processes to release old patterns and rediscover the power that resides deep within to move towards what you want in life.

Whether you are just getting the first inklings that something needs to shift in life, or you are mid transition to something new and exciting, let us share with you practices to discover what holds you back from what you truly desire.

Six Ingredients to Optimal Healing

You can’t heal when your nervous system is in overdrive.

Generally speaking, your nervous system can be in overdrive just from the demands of your busy life and many responsibilities. Then when an illness or injury occurs your nervous system is stressed even further. These circumstances are less than ideal for optimal healing.

Pain Is An Epidemic

Pain is an epidemic across North America and the industrialized world. The US Department of Health and Human Services estimates that pain affects more Americans than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined.

Body Awareness Practice - 9:06

Massater Muscle (Jaw Muscle)

Did you know that the strongest muscle in the body based on its weight is the masseter (jaw muscle)?

With all muscles of the jaw working together it can close the teeth with a force as great as 55 pounds (25 kilograms) on the incisors or 200 pounds (90.7 kilograms) on the molars. Amazing! And no wonder it is so painful when it is locked tight!

Stress creates disease - the art of listening heals

Our physiology has equipped us with the ability to fight, flight or freeze in the face of imminent danger. This natural autonomic response served us well in pre-historic times. After the danger was over, we settled back into a rest and digest, nervous system response. But today it’s a different story.

Today our lifestyles, work habits, poor postural habits and weakened resiliency mean that the threats to our nervous system health are exponential – leaving us chronically overstimulated.

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.
