The body whispers before it screams
Let us work together to heal your pain
What is Pain ?
Cambridge Dictionary PAIN: highly unpleasant physical sensation caused by illness or injury.
Meyer’s (the fascia guru’s) definition: Pain is a sensation accompanied by the motor intention to withdraw.
…so if you are not trying to get away from it …it’s not technically pain but sensation.
80% of all pain stem from
1. underuse of muscles and joints
2. isolated overuse of specific muscles and joints
3. postural strain on the skeletal system.
What is Pain Therapy?
Good pain vs bad pain for healing:
All physical pain is inflammatory in nature, interlinked with false recruitment of muscles, sticky fascia and misfiring electrical circuits. We work at the good side of a stretch or pressure, where you are still happy to stay and breathe with ease and can feel a sensation of expansion which hydrates fascia.
We use: The Pain Scale
We work with a pain scale of 1<10 (10 is causing pain that is causing you to push back). It can feel emotionally or physically like you feel the need to contract or pull back. It gives us a subjective score to see where you are, teaches you to quantify the experience and gain perspective
If you know or have made the observation that stretching results in ease… your 9 out of 10 seems to shift magically. Your 9 keeps changing and you seem to be able to take more and more onto you with the vision to get the pain out…
If you start fighting you run the danger of re-injuring, so, get to know your 9. Stop with the no-pain-no-gain theory and instead accept that The Goldilocks Principle holds true for human tissue:
not too much, not too little, but just right amounts of input keep us healthy and mobile, this input needs to be daily to make the change permanent, this is where your home practise comes in. Posture is not changing with 1-2-1 sessions alone.
In order to be able to treat pain effectively – we need to have a positive understanding of it. Pain is not an inconvenience it’s your bodies cry for attention and help. LNB pain therapy allows us to do this. Pain is normally your body warning you of a problem. My job is to teach you to make musculofascial changes (new habits) so that your body no longer needs to give you these pain alarms.
Who would Benefit from Pain Therapy?
The good thing about LNB pain therapy is that it allows me to understand nearly every pain that may arise in your body, it’s not limited to certain types of pain or specific areas of your body. We also take into account indirect influencing factors such as environment and diet as we get deeper into therapy. It’s an education for you in your own anatomy and how to support your body better so it can do it’s job.
What Makes LNB Pain Therapy Special?
With LNB pain therapy – it is a natural body appropriate therapy. There is no medication required, operations can be avoided. The therapy is also sustainable which is important as is the holistic approach. You yourself gain the knowledge to understand what your body needs to balance and heal and daily practise will ensure that pain does not reoccur and the old issue disappears altogether.
If the pain does not stop within 3-5 sessions which means it is mainly postural, we start to delve into other factors such as Past trauma, stress, anxiety, dietary problems etc that could be a contributing factor to the issue not being willing to shift. As well as helping you to make yourself pain-free my job is to improve your overall quality of life.
