Through the practice of present moment awareness, a person becomes cognizant of the thoughts, feelings and impulses that are unfolding and can attend to the relevant feedback messages of the body and mind. This expanded awareness provides greater options for appraisal and response to the perceived situation presented in the experience of chronic pain. Research on Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction and chronic pain has recently demonstrated changes to the pain transmission pathway in only an 8-week period of practice.



  • Understanding the relationship of mindfulness to chronic pain states
  • Massage therapists can improve outcomes for their clients by supporting their clients and their own mindfulness
  • Simple principles of doing this are explored

  • 47-minute Video of Theory, Practice and Questions and Answers
  • Course Manual of 64 power point slides
    Please note this course will take most people 2 hours to absorb all the new information.
  • In-Course Links to Mindfulness Resources, Journal Articles and Training
