If you are you still experiencing pain and you haven’t found a way to get rid of it, or you simply want to prevent pain, then this can be your way forward.
Learn all you need, to take care of your pain condition in my movement therapy class. Self-responsibility is key. You can take pain treatment into your own hands.
Pain is based on a condition. It is not the disease. Treat the condition and the pain will go.
I’ll do an informational evening on 2nd October, 7.30pm in Mounttown Community Centre in Dun Laoghaire. Classes will take place weekly on Tuesdays 7.30 pm from then on.
The first one’s free, single classes will be 15 Euros, or 50 Euros for 4 classes.
If you wish to sign up or have a question, please get in touch with me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
What it is about:
My movement therapy class is based on the “Liebscher & Bracht Schmerztherapie” (Liebscher & Bracht pain therapy) concept I learned in Germany. Based on this concept severe muscular tension is the main cause for about 95% of musculo-skeletal pain. In the class I teach stretching and foam rolling exercises specifically designed to reduce muscular tension levels (myo-fascial release techniques) for long term pain relief. You will also learn how to avoid specific situations that lead to pain and how to make good choices in lifestyle, diet and micronutrients to achieve good health. That not only leads to good general health but also notably reduces stress and consequently muscular tension and pain. The classes are also well suited to learn how to prevent pain in the first place.
What you’ll need:
You should bring comfortable clothing that you can move well with and a mat if you can, i.e. yoga, pilates or fitness mats. I’ll bring the fascia rolls and exercise sheets (which you can take home with you)

Giving multiple pain a name is curse and blessing at the same time.
Finally being able to give the devil a name and being able to say ‘that’s what I am suffering from’, can be a relief. On the other hand the diagnosis of fibromyalgia seems so definite, that it can lead to a lot of hopelessness and despair. By definition fibromyalgia is widespread body pain and a heightened pain response to pressure. Any other potential diagnosis, such as rheumatoid arthritis, have been discarded. Often the pain is accompanied by fatigue, poor sleep, mood problems, restless- legs syndrome, bowel or bladder problems, numbness and tingling, and sensitivity to noise, lights or temperature. There is no clear evidence as to why people develop these pains. That makes it very difficult to find effective treatment options. In many cases people end up with a big list of drugs, but yet they don’t find the relief they are looking for.
The LNB Pain Therapy looks at it from a different angle
From the LNB Pain Therapy view the primary focus is to get the pain down, as that is where the patients main suffering comes from. The simplistic LNB Pain Therapy approach sees fibromyalgia as multiple pain areas due to exaggerated myo-fascial tension.
Therefore LNB Pain Therapy treats fibromyalgia just as any other pain condition – with osteo-pressure and consecutive stretching exercises. If you treat one area after the other, starting with the worst, the condition can be gradually healed. This has been proven in numerous cases. With specific constriction point stretches patients can also keep fibromyalgia at bay in the long term. Once the pain is successfully treated we should also go ahead and look for primary causes for the fibromyalgia. Usually there are more factors coming together.
In my next blogs I want to look at the specifics of some of the most common pain conditions. I want to put some light on how they develop and what one can do about them.
