THE RESULTS YOU WANT. THE RELIEF YOU NEED.

Our understanding of the brain-body connection has changed tremendously over the past ten years as brain mapping technology has given us insight into brain function and function movement.


Many veterans navigating pain or injury have limited results based on what medications or referrals their primary care provider can access within the military treatment facility list or if the tempo of the mission even allows time to slow down to go to appointments.


As the Veteran’s spouse, watching your loved one experience the physical and mental effects of their job can feel helpless and hopeless at times. Unlike many other programs available to veterans, we believe including the couple in classes together will increase the application of what you’ve learned. We will teach you how to recognize pain in your partner based on how they walk and move.


Remember when you first met your partner, when all you wanted to do was be near each other so your hearts could talk to one another, speaking a language that transcends words? Then, life happens, and the strain of military lifestyle or injuries interfere. You embrace the suck, and it changes you. Imagine learning to use healing touch to cultivate intimacy when words fail and opening your hearts to one another in a new connected way.


This program is designed to challenge your understanding of your mind, body, and pain connection. Through hands-on demonstrations, you will learn how to recognize movement patterns in your partner and simple drills and techniques you can use at home.
