Intro to Pain Neuroscience (Short Course)

Exploring the science of pain and application for the therapist.

Who is this course for?

I've suffered chronic back pain for 25 years.

"After suffering chronic back pain for 25 years and an acute sciatic attack which caused ongoing side effects and limited my movement and lifestyle significantly I didn't think there was anything that could help me. After a friends' recommendation, I had a BMT session with Tracy Taulier. After one session, I was able to stand perfectly erect which I hadn't done since I was a teenager. I was so impressed, I took an ABMMA course and begun daily self-treatment. After 10 months the symptoms and pain have significantly improved. I feel like it's a miracle."
