It seems hard to believe, but a pain-free life is possible even after decades of suffering. Spine surgeon David Hanscom has helped hundreds of people move out of chronic physical and emotional pain with his multilayered, patient-directed approach. Movement artist Babs Yohai and psychologist Jasmine Yohai both focus on mindful movement and body awareness in their work.

Through group discussions, guided imagery, and sensorimotor exercises, you learn to address all the factors that affect your perception of pain. You explore the neurological nature of pain and the shifts you can make through creative practice. You also learn energy work, meditation, and forgiveness practices to reprogram your mind-body connection. In a safe and structured environment, you get the support and information you need to begin to break free from pain.

This approach benefits those suffering from chronic pain, family members of those with chronic pain, and health-care professionals who want to implement these strategies in their practices.
