True wellness is more than being free from illness: it is a process of change and growth towards a mentally and physically healthy self.
I treat the whole person, mind and body, with a specialization in chronic pain.
When you have long-term pain and medical treatments don't seem to help, you may have a neural circuit, or brain pathway, disorder where everyday stress exacerbates your pain.
If you do, that's good news because neural circuit disorders are reversible with proper treatment.
Neural pathways in the brain are responsible for our experience of pain.
If we injure ourselves the brain perceives danger and creates pain to change our behavior so we can stay safe.
When the brain feels we are safe it has no need to create pain.
I teach strategies that work with neuroplasticity and redirect neural curcuits, calming the brain so that pain diminishes.
Some people will see their pain disappear completely.
The mind-body approach to health and illness is slowly gaining acceptance in the medical world.
Depression, anxiety, or other emotions are always intertwined with pain.
Health providers have known about the mind/body connection for decades
yet this perspective is only now becoming fully integrated into healthcare.
We can apply this approach in your life and with the knowledge you gain you can begin to reduce or eliminate much, and possibly all, of your pain.
