Let's get started with CARE

Lesson Summary

Welcome to the Elements of Care workshop, where the focus is on understanding chronic pain and using our innate neuroplasticity to heal ourselves. Many existing programs lack a comprehensive exploration of the roots of neuroplastic issues.

  • The workshop looks at personality and behavioural tendencies without delving too deep into past events, aiming to avoid keeping individuals stuck in the past.
  • It emphasizes a foundation in the four elements of CARE to build a strong starting point for healing.
  • Various practices like Vagus nerve toning, EFT, journaling, and more are beneficial when combined with these CARE elements for lasting impact.

Healing involves recognizing external factors affecting internal states, such as past events shaping current behaviours. Unlearning old coping mechanisms is crucial for progress.

  • Changing outdated habits is key to relieving neuroplastic pain and reducing strain on mental and emotional well-being.
  • The workshop teaches how to establish a supportive internal environment by prioritizing the four elements of CARE.

The instructor's extensive training and experience in personal training, yoga, massage therapy, and pain education enhance the depth of knowledge shared in the workshop.

  • Through this learning journey, participants can develop new self-care habits and ways of engaging with themselves and others.
