ReMap was our 2019 project using movement and mindfulness to help people living with chronic pain, in collaboration with the Isle of Wight NHS Chronic Pain Service.
Sessions took place once a week in Newport, sharing techniques to reduce stress and aid relaxation and to help build confidence with movement. Participants greatly enjoyed the sessions and reported improvements in psychological wellbeing, and they felt they could better manage their condition:
“I still have pain but the class has enabled me to cope with it better.”
“I now practise rotational breathing at home, it helps me manage the stress response to pain and it is in no doubt (in my mind at least) a game changer.”
