A Holistic Approach to Managing Pain, 4-Week Workshop

Chronic pain will stop you in your tracks.

It can prevent you from engaging in activities of daily living.

While the traditional medical approach to pain management can be helpful, there are countless other ways to help manage pain – through food, movement and mindfulness. These are the three keys to holistic pain management.

Join us and learn a holistic approach to managing pain.

Hi! We’re Diana Robinson and Tanya McCausland. We have created a one of a kind program to help you find new ways to decrease your pain….holistically.

Diana is a yoga teacher and holistic occupational therapist. Tanya practices therapeutic and holistic nutrition. A Holistic Approach to Managing Pain is a comprehensive class on managing pain from a holistic standpoint – using food, movement and mindfulness.

These are the three essentials for healing from the inside out!

During this 4-week workshop we will address common pain conditions such asfibromyalgia, back pain, arthritis, inflammatory conditions, lyme disease and many others.

You will learn common-sense dietary principals, simple movement techniques and mindfulness-based strategies to create your personalized pain management toolbox to take with you wherever you go.

What happens during the classes?
During each class we will share new concepts, ideas and activities to help you build your personalized pain management toolbox. We’ll cover the three keys to holistic pain management – food, movement and mindfulness.

Common-Sense Dietary Principles – Tanya will share what foods fuel inflammation and pain and which healing foods can help lessen pain. You will learn how compromised digestion, food allergies and substances found in certain foods all play a role in chronic pain. Over the four weeks you will try new healing foods, delicious recipes and start your journey to decreasing pain and inflammation through the power of food.

Simple Movement Techniques – Chronic pain can make it feel impossible to participate in any movement. However, practicing regular movement can help you start to heal – you just have to find the right fit for your body. Diana will share very simple and achievable ways to incorporate movement into your daily life. You will learn how even the most basic movements can help strengthen and soften muscles while reducing pain over time.

Mindfulness Based Strategies - Mindfulness can be described as a gentle effort to be continuously present with experience you are having. When experiencing pain, we typically want to do the exact opposite. Diana will share easy to use mindfulness based strategies to use on a regular basis to manage chronic pain as well as acute episodes of pain. She will also help you to shift your perception of your experience with pain through the use of meditation, use of mantras, gratitude, and other strategies.
