Drug Free Pain Reduction and Pain Management
Breath Control Therapy will help you to become more active and productive sooner, taking control of your pain rather than letting it control you. Millions of people suffer from chronic pain, and it is a poorly understood diagnosis that can be life changing, all encompassing and debilitating. Whatever the cause of these pains, a common denominator is that they drain energy and happiness from everyday life.
We pride ourselves in the ability to help restore happiness and increase the quality of life of our patients by providing effective non-pharmacological support for pain reduction and pain management.

“A healthy mind is a healthy body”
Breath Control Therapy is highly safe and easy to perform once learned. The fact that patients with acute or chronic pain are able to take an initiative and actively do something to relieve their pain has several secondary beneficial effects.
Controlled functional breathing patterns can increase the productions of endorphins, which help block nerve cells from releasing pain signals to the brain and provide relief when experiencing acute or chronic pain.
Our clients are given the ability to take the situation in to their own hands removing the negative connotations of feeling like a victim, are more in control of a frustrating situation, thus regain energy, vigor and a positive outlook.
We will collaborate to develop your own personal relaxation and imagery program that will work for you and your unique injury and perception of pain.
Breath Control Therapy for pain management can be delivered through secure telehealth sessions or we can accommodate by visiting you at the bedside for on-site and in-person therapy.
