Info Sessions

Are you sick of being told …

“There’s nothing we can do.”

“We can’t find the cause of your pain.”

“Here’s another prescription for painkillers.”

You’re not alone and we’re here to help!

At Pain Mastery, we are passionate about helping individuals who suffer from chronic pain, to teach them that they can take control of their pain, to provide hope that they can live life the way they want, they are not slaves to pain they experience.

How do we do this? We run our program based on The Neural Alignment Method®. Our next intake for this program starts on 4 May 2020 and we are running some Information Sessions where you can meet the Pain Mastery team and learn more.

The Neural Alignment Method® Program

Our program consists of an intensive 6-week group course and 12 months of follow up and support.

On completion participants will have:

  • A deep understanding and knowledge about their pain physically, mentally and emotionally and know-how to self-manage
  • A suite of specialised movements to enhance correct posture along with an understanding of manual handling
  • Advanced techniques, strategies and tools to help identify stressors and personal pain triggers
  • A personalised exercise program specifically tailored for their needs
  • Guidance and assistance in developing a plan to move forward and assistance in getting back into the workplace, along with social and recreational activities.
