Mindfulness | Developing understanding of the concept and the science

Those who have come to the clinics for treatment of persisting pain including CRPS will have heard me talk about mindfulness. Introducing mindfulness into a programme offers an opportunity to create a potent ability to be aware and hence develop control over pain, anixety and stress. I teach simple exercises and encourage practice similar to the movement based training. Understanding why this can be an immensely valuable skill is important as a motivator to drive the continued practice that is necessary. To that end, here are several videos:
