What can we do about pain?

What can we do about pain?

  1. Learn about pain: read (David Butler, Patrick Wall, Ronald Melzack, Lorimer Moseley), search the web (aptei.ca, bettermovement.org), talk to professionals!
  1. Become aware of your body:

– sometimes tissues repair but associated protective patterns may not, and that may be creating the persisting pain. Have you developed protective, but harmful, movement patterns? Are there areas of tension, tightness, weakness, compensation, that are not allowing your body to function normally as it once did?

– some tissues don’t repair as well as we would want, so have you learned how to stabilize, support, mobilize, or strengthen the area to make it as healthy as possible?

  1. Understand that disc bulges, diagnosis of arthritis, DDD, tendon tears, are a normal part of ageing processes and that 90% of people with no pain will have at least one of these findings. It takes away a lot of fear of those nasty reports.
  1. Learn to breathe and be mindful.
  1. Sleep well, eat well, and drink lots of water.
  1. Become more active, especially in the outdoors, and have fun/hobby in your life to take focus off of your pain.
  1. Become aware of emotional and physical stressors and change those that you can.
  1. Be hopeful. The brain, spinal cord, nerves, and tissues are constantly changing. The brain is always looking for more information. Adding new movements and exercises that are painfree helps with new patterns of movement and decreases painful avoidance patterns, and increase blood flow to help heal tissues.  It is never too late for change.
  1. Set goals, have something to strive for!

Striving To Win The Best Of Halifax In Our Categories But We Need Your Help.

We are once again striving to win the Best Of Halifax in our categories but we can’t do it without your help.

Here are the details:
Voting is done in TWO stages:

  • Stage 1 – nominations… runs from June 1-July 15
  • Stage 2 – final votes… begins August 1 (only the top 6 from the nomination stage will be included on the ballot. So stage 1 is crucial, and then we can send out another plea at August 1 for a final vote)

Tara Patriquin has been voted in the top 3 for 6 years in a row for Best Massage Therapist

Best Massage Therapist category can be found in the “health” section of the voting, here:
https://bestofhalifax.com/#//

This year they are asking “why do you think they’re the best”… so you can include some suggested buzz words like “science based”, “effective”, “compassionate care” and other words that you think best describe me/my massages, and the One to One Wellness team and their services.

Voters have to enter their email address and full name on their FIRST nomination in order to register. After that they can continue through the categories to nominate as many other people as they want in other sections.

Bottom line is we want to encourage you to have your say and help promote/boast our awesome team!

Learning Opportunities

Many thanks to those who came to our seminar series “Understanding and Overcoming Persistent Pain” at the Halifax Library. It was great to help people gain more knowledge about treating and, more importantly, preventing pain. Based on our experience, we know there is a gap in people’s understanding of pain. We wanted to let people know that (1) that they are not alone, (2) that help is available and (3) that it’s possible to regain control over that aspect of life.

Our passion stems from helping people who are suffering with persistent pain live more fulfilled lives. Education, movement, and exercise are key to achieving this. We are firm believers that knowledge is power and it is the first step in gaining freedom from persistent pain.

We were very pleased with the turnout for the last series of workshops and recognize that people want help managing their pain or a loved one’s pain. Here are some upcoming opportunities to learn more:
