Have you found the pain is more intense when you're STRESSED?


Excess stress can feel like pain

as well as impact nervous system modulation of pain levels.



Come to this session and explore :


   * the various nociceptive paths through which stress feeds pain *

   * possible hacks *

   * some biofeedback to enhance autonomic pain modulation ability *

International Stress Awareness Day is held on the first Wednesday of November.


International Stress Awareness Day

is a day to increase awareness of the impact of stress on us in our workplace, at school, and at home

and consider how to decrease its negative impact.


The Canadian Institute of Stress reports that those who take time daily to "be good to yourself" decrease their stress by almost half !

Hopefully you will consider "being good to yourself" everyday, not just on Stress Awareness Day.
