Pain Reprocessing Therapy
Pain reprocessing therapy (PRT), developed by Alan Gordon LCSW (founder of the Pain Psychology Center and author of The Way Out), is a way of treating chronic pain by changing how the brain perceives pain signals. Chronic pain and stress actually changes the structure of the brain by strengthening neural pathways associated with stress reactions and pain symptoms. This teaches the brain the familiar sensation of pain, which leads sufferers to experience “centralized” or “primary” pain. This type of pain isn’t caused by a problem within our bodies, but instead, changes in the neural pathways of the brain. The most common pain reprocessing therapy technique used to treat chronic pain is Somatic Tracking. This treatment combines mindfulness with safety reassurance, and addressing the thoughts behind the stress and pain.
Yoga and Ayurveda
Yoga is a mind and body practice that combines physical postures, breathing techniques, and meditation or relaxation to promote mental and physical well-being. Yoga is not about controlling your thoughts it is about not letting your thoughts control you. Yoga is the original 'Positive Mindset' practice.
“You cannot do yoga. Yoga is your natural state. What you can do are yoga exercises, which may reveal to you where you are resisting your natural state.” ― Sharon Gannon
Ayurveda is one of the world's oldest whole body healing systems. It was developed more than 3,000 years ago in India. It's based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the five elements (Ether, Wind, Fire, Water and Earth). Ayurveda is the original 'Living Within Nature's Rhythms' practice.
