Have you considered using mindfulness meditation? I've found it to be helpful personally and I've seen it benefit many of my clients over the years. Plus, there is a lot of scientific evidence to back this up.
For the last several years, I've been teaching Mindfulness Practice for Pain Management at the Ottawa Mindfulness Clinic, where I completed my mindfulness teacher training. Starting last fall, I moved the program online which means that it is now available to people all over Ontario.
The spring 2021 course will run on Wednesday mornings, beginning on May 5 (from 9-11 a.m.).
This is a small group, interactive program. The course runs for eight weeks. Most weeks, there is one 2-hour session on a weekday morning. In addition, you will have access to a platform with handouts and meditations to practice. A day of mindfulness is also included part way through the program.
This course teaches mindfulness to cope with chronic illnesses such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, arthritis, concussion and pain related to physical injury.
This course is often covered by extended health benefits, under occupational therapy or psychology (my supervisor is a psychologist and I am an OT). I can also bill auto insurance or Blue Cross (military, veterans and RCMP). The cost of the course is $550 (no taxes).
