Pain Care Workshops

Life Is Now offers workshops, lectures and conference presentations to health professionals, yoga teachers and people in pain – providing current understanding of pain science, the lived experience of pain, and evidence-based self care techniques. Knowledge is powerful. Pain care techniques are also powerful – when we know why they work, and how they should be practiced. Whether it is a 1 hour lecture or two-day intensive workshop, you will leave with practical tools to improve your success in pain care, and an understanding of how to incorporate these into your pain care plans.
