Classes

Breaking Free of Chronic PainTM classes teach tools and techniques for self-care and pain management.  The program helps participants restore well-being when injured or in pain and provides information about the effects of chronic pain on the health of the body, mind, emotions, stress and energy levels.

The program includes gentle movement to release muscle tension and restore mobility to the body, breathing techniques and mindfulness to calm the mind and the emotions, guided relaxation and body awareness meditations to reduce stress and create a deep sense of peace and well being.  By weaving these practices together, participants learn tools that focus the mind, calm the emotions and rejuvenate the body.   The practices taught are intended to provide the building blocks for developing a personal practice of daily self-care and nurturing on an ongoing basis.

Classes meet weekly on the same day for six weeks.  Call for more information or to register and be placed on a waiting list for the next available start date.  Total cost of the 6-week course is $120 with a sliding scale available as low as $72 for Oregon Health Plan Members.
