Even more difficult than the pain itself, can be the frustration and helplessness that people experience when they encounter the lack of long-term pain solutions offered by our conventional healthcare system. However, too often this includes alternative healthcare options too; as a field we are frequently guilty of managing pain and symptoms rather than offering a cure.
Every day at Living Wellness Centre we encounter people who have spent years and often thousands of dollars seeking a solution to their pain. They’ve usually tried many different healing modalities – and are still in the same position as when they started. In pain. Every day…This isn’t good enough.
At Living Wellness Centre, we believe with a dedicated and collaborative approach, you can be pain free.
However, the journey to true freedom from the pain that has become fixed in your body usually isn’t easy. It requires participation, motivation and dedication on the part of the patient. It should be clear from experience that you can’t simply rely on a therapist to ‘fix’ your pain. This process requires an honest examination of your lifestyle habits and commitment to improvement and change where necessary. How you sleep, eat, move and manage your stress all have an enormous impact on your body’s ability to heal and handle chronic pain. Our movement coaching programs and emotional and psychological support via counseling or psychotherapy can also have an enormous positive impact on healing pain.
Without addressing your foundational lifestyle habits you will only get the same mediocre results.
At Living Wellness Centre we are different. Our collective shared experience and honest, collaborative approach offers a fresh and effective solution to your chronic pain.
The greatest evil is physical pain.
Pain makes people change.
Healing severe or chronic pain, I believe, includes transforming our relationship to the pain, and, ultimately, it is about transforming our relationship to who we are and to life.
Few things a doctor does are more important than relieving pain. . . pain is soul destroying. No patient should have to endure intense pain unnecessarily.
