March 1, 2019

Course launching March 2019

Course overview

Starting March 2019, Pain BC will be offering a one of a kind online course on gentle movement and relaxation techniques. The course is developed in collaboration with renowned Canadian physiotherapist Neil Pearson. The goal of the Gentle Movement and Relaxation course is to equip physiotherapists and other therapeutic movement professionals with practical knowledge and teaching resources to enable them to lead their own movement and relaxation program for people living with chronic pain.

In this self-paced course, practitioners will gain knowledge in pain science, pain and recovery, and learn specific gentle movement and relaxation exercises to administer to their clients. Included in the course are interactive slides, audio recordings of breath and body exercises, video resources, weekly homework, movement exercise sheets and other helpful forms to facilitate the program.
