CONVENTIONAL METHODS OF MANAGING CHRONIC PAIN JUST DON'T WORK
All the time, money and effort you've put into trying to fix your body has NOT healed your pain.
And here's why...
AVOIDING TRIGGERS WITH PAIN MANAGEMENT
Avoiding the things that cause pain might help with limiting the frequency of pain in the short term. But in the long term it actually teaches our brain to fear our triggers more.
This leads to more fear, more worry, and more pain.
Avoiding triggers prevents us from doing the very things that help us heal, and makes achieving a full recovery impossible.
HEALING WITH C.A.R.E.
DECONDITIONS PAIN TRIGGERS
My unique C.A.R.E. Brain Retraining method teaches our brain to see our triggers as safe. This process gets rid of the pain alert associated with the trigger so we no longer have to worry about it.
Whatever your triggers are: tasks like vacuuming, specific actions like bending over, lifting overhead, walking, carrying a pack, certain positions, foods, smells, temperatures...
We can introduce them back into our lives using my gentle strategy.
The Elements of C.A.R.E. mini workshop uses our current scientific understanding of how our brain learns safety. This gets us back to doing the things we love and the things that give us purpose within our family and community.
PATCHING THE PAIN WITH CONVENTIONAL TREATMENTS
Pain meds, manual therapies and procedures like steroid or trigger point injections, only serve to cover up the underlying issue of a burnt out nervous system.
This might feel good for a little while, but is temporary at best.
Continuing to treat chronic pain in this way increases protective pain responses, so the patching is less effective and the pain intensifies.
HEALING WITH C.A.R.E.
HEALS THE ROOT CAUSE
Inside the mini workshop you'll heal the root of the issue using my C.A.R.E. approach.
Chronic pain is not about a broken body, it's about our brain being chronically stuck in a protective state. This taxes our protective systems and our central nervous system becomes overly sensitive to any physical, emotional, or social stress.
We heal through teaching our brain we are safe while increasing our nervous system's capacity for responding to life stressors.
This is a life changing process that makes us resilient in the face of all the challenges life throws at us.
When our brain and nervous system have a greater capacity, protective responses like pain disappear.
THINKING OUR WAY OUT WITH PSYCHOLOGY AND MINDFULNESS
Mind based treatment like cognitive behavioural therapy, education with no action, and mindfulness practices is only half the healing that needs to be done.
Focusing on cognitive processes alone neglects the need for feedback through the body to teach the brain our safety.
This can actually reinforce the brain's misinterpretation of the danger it believes we're in, which keeps us stuck in pain.
HEALING WITH C.A.R.E.
FREES US FROM PAIN & FEAR
With my Elements of C.A.R.E. process we use a combination of cognitive (education, safety reassurance) and somatic (movement, body sensation) to heal.
Movement and awareness of body sensation gives positive feedback to the brain that we are in fact safe. This makes pain alert neural pathways go dormant so that pain goes away.
This mini workshop replaces old coping mechanisms that trigger pain - like perfectionism and people-pleasing.
Instead the unique approach of combining activity with safety reassurance develops new neural pathways for ease and comfort in a strong and healthy body.
You have too many great years ahead of you to settle for anything less!
Hi! I'M AMY.
I suffered with neuroplastic symptoms, including pain, from a young teen. Now, after healing myself and developing my unique method of healing pain, I help people overcome their debilitating pain-fear cycle so they can get back to the fun, fulfilling life they deserve.
Now, when I'm not working with clients, you can find me mountain biking, hiking, swimming, paddling, at the gym, singing, playing cello, reading a book, or just generally enjoying life.
Get ready to experience my compassionate style of coaching with evidence-based "Brain Retraining", and a healthy dose of motivation, support and accountability!
"Wow! I loved this! I dusted off my yoga mat today and went for it without any fear from moving my body. It felt so good, it's as if my body is actually thanking me for finally "using" it instead of being too scared to do anything because of pain."
"Two weeks ago I would have been afraid of feeling pain in my body again after having such a great today. But I'm not afraid, I'm just feeling amazed right now! The brain is really powerful!"
