Retrain Back Pain® is a holistic, multidisciplinary approach to relieving back pain.

This program is a movement-based re-education training for experienced professionals who see the growing need to integrate safe, effective back care practices in to classes, specialized workshops and individualized private client practices.

The Retrain Back Pain® Teacher Training was created from from my own driving need to find a better way to think, eat, move and deal with recurring back pain.  This program is the confluence of over 20 years of continuing education with a variety of healing modalities and it incorporates best practices from some of the greatest movement mavens from around the world.
