We Help Bridge The Gap Between
Patient Self Care
Pain is highly responsive to each person's psychology and mindset. Intuitively our brains are motivated to escape pain but we are not born with the know how to navigate it. We dive in and learn techniques rooted in positive psychology to help steer you just far enough away from the negative emotions associated with pain so you can get on with your day to day.
“You can’t separate mind and body. We’re a unified human.”
(Lorimor Mosely PhD, lead pain researcher)
At Pain 2 Possibilities, movement is medicine. Gone are the days where your prescription for pain was to put your feet up and wait for things to change. Nope! Instead, we are going to move strategically, mindfully through what works best for your body. This is where we learn to fine tune our movements and really listen to our bodies cues.
“Only two things that should be really rested: major trauma or broken bones. Everything else should be worked.”
(Lorimor Mosely PhD, lead pain researcher)
Neglecting your nutrition while healing and dealing with pain is like building a house without the foundations. Good food is the support the whole body needs to repair and thrive. From understanding your unique needs to addressing inflammation, we cover a multitude of topics.
'You have 75 trillion cells in your body. You create 10 million per second. Your job is simple, make sure they get what they need.'
Wellness Coaching is a strength-based approach to pain management that helps move you from a place of being ‘stuck’ in fear, ambivalence or confusion to taking great steps to a stronger, healthier you. Think of Coaching as the vessel that takes you from the “I want” or “I should be doing” to the mighty “I am doing!"
'When things change inside you, things change around you.'
It is a known fact that Geese gain 70% more strength to fly further in their migration when they stay in formation. We are better together. There is nothing more powerful than being in a space where you feel understood, embraced and with a sense of belonging, especially when dealing with chronic pain. This is a powerful online community of people going through many of the same experiences as you. It has also been proven that groups can be an integral part of healing.
Community also means pulling in the experts to help you learn and grow through the many layers of pain management. Equally as important, it means learning from you too!
'Community is much more than belonging to something, its about doing something together that makes belonging matter"

What our people are saying
” After being diagnosed with breast cancer at 43, & having gone through 18 months of treatments, my life was turned upside down. Recovering from 4 surgeries, along with being diagnosed with osteoporosis, left me feeling anxious, exhausted, weak with painful muscles & joints. Deana helped explain the various aspects of chronic pain & the connection to my mental, physical & emotional health. She coached me on setting realistic goals, resetting my mindset & using mindfulness activities to help distract from my discomfort and helping me feel like I was gaining back some control of my health and wellbeing.
I was a stay at home mom for ten years and as a result had developed some back and hip issues. Because of my time off work , I found I had developed some self limiting beliefs and behaviours. Basically I had lost my self confidence. Deana gave me the guidance to create a plan and to take action. She gently pushed me to see that I am capable and to believe in myself again. Deana has a very supportive, comforting coaching style, which totally puts you at ease. Her ability to draw out what is truly most important to you is her unique gift. ”
I have been struggling with my back since 2012. I have been on a frustrating roller coaster ride since then with specialists, pain meds and different exercise plans. I just could not get a steady plan going. I was referred to Deana and she took her time to understand what my problem was. I started to attend her online classes and her mix of core, hips and pelvis exercises has been really good for me. I am trying to get back on the golf course and she has helped me with that too. I've now got a plan that is helping me to feel more in control of my pain!'
It takes a lot of courage to share your heart with us, your chronic pain community. And it's that openness, authenticity and humility that I love so much about you! You are truly committed to the care and wellness goals of your clients, but also open about your own goals, struggles, ambitions, short-comings and the everyday things that comprise life as a Mom, wife, and professional . Thank you for keeping it real!
