Suffering with Pain?

Acute pain is the body’s warning signal that something specific is wrong. It is a normal sensation triggered in the nervous system to alert you to possible injury and the need to take care of yourself.

Persistent or chronic pain, defined as pain lasting three months or more, is quite different though. It may result from chronic inflammation, nerve damage, or a complex problem involving mind and body, when the nervous system begins to generate pain signals even though no underlying cause is involved.

 

How NMG can help you deal with pain

We understand how disruptive to your day-to-day existence pain is – beyond the direct physical and mental suffering; it can limit mobility, lower mood, and remove enjoyment from your leisure time. Some causes of chronic pain include the aftermath of physical injury, arthritisheadache & migrainelow back pain, neurogenic pain (pain resulting from damage to the peripheral nerves or to the central nervous system itself), psychogenic pain (pain not due to past disease or injury or any visible sign of damage inside or outside the nervous system), chronic fatigue syndromeendometriosisfibromyalgiainflammatory bowel diseaseinterstitial cystitis, temporomandibular joint dysfunction, and vulvodynia. It is not known whether these disorders share a common cause.

Experiencing Provocative Therapy

Provocative Therapy has had a significant and ongoing impact on me. The session itself forced to the surface a few truths about myself and my life which I had previously been reluctant to admit to myself. That I found helpful and enlightening. However the real shock came when I watched myself on film afterwards. I was rather dreading having to view myself, especially in such an open and vulnerable position. But nothing prepared me for the shock I had when I firstswitched on the tape. For the first time, I think ever, I was able to view myself objectively. It was not like looking in the mirror or seeing myself on film; never before had I seen myself interact naturally like that. I was surprised how pertinent the contradiction was between the idea I had of myself and how I really appeared. This initial jolt certainly had the most impact but now I’m grateful to have the film so that I can revisit it whenever I need to. Each time it’s almost like going through another session. It forces me toreally look at myself and listen to what I’m saying and to understand that there is a difference between my own, often warped perspective, and the truth in front of me.
