Course currently available to BC health care providers only

Course overview

Pain BC is offering a one-of-a-kind online course on gentle movement and relaxation techniques. The course is developed in collaboration with renowned Canadian physiotherapist Neil Pearson. The goal of the Gentle Movement and Relaxation Course is to equip physiotherapists and other therapeutic movement professionals with practical knowledge and teaching resources to lead their own movement and relaxation programs for people living with chronic pain.

In this self-paced course, practitioners will gain knowledge in pain science, pain and recovery, and learn specific gentle movement and relaxation exercises to administer to their clients. Interactive slides, audio recordings of breath and body exercises, video resources, weekly homework, movement exercise sheets and other helpful tools will also be available to help facilitate the program.
