MINDFUL PAIN MANAGEMENT
Meet the physical sensations of pain with new found awareness
Mindful Pain Management (MPM) addresses pain management through a biopsychosocial lens. MPM is a brain-based practice to cultivate greater awareness of our relationship with chronic pain. Neuroscience suggests that our thoughts and feeling about our pain are an integral part of how the nervous system regulates the sophisticated alarm system of pain. We now know that pain does not necessarily mean that there is something wrong with the body… and because pain is created in the brain, all sorts of factors contribute to our experience of pain…. like what else is going on in the world around us and what the pain means to us.
Based on brain-based neuroscience, MPM will give you the knowledge and skill to meet the physical sensations of pain with a new found awareness. Using meditation and guided mindfulness practice, you will cultivate greater resilience and train the brain to respond skillfully to the moment to moment physical sensations of pain. By changing the relationship we have with our pain, we will decreasing our suffering and signal the nervous systems to be less sensitive to pain triggering stimulus.
