What is Pain? Is it a signal? Is it a sensory response? Is it an emotional experience? Does it mean that we are always causing damage?  

In this episode Physiotherapist, Pilates instructor and pain advocate Alex O’neil-King and myself have an in-depth conversation on what pain is how it can be perceived and its common misconceptions. And when treating/ addressing pain itself are we missing some vital points?

Alex’s take home tips when addressing pain

  • Set tangible positive goals

A great way to measure your success through the journey of addressing the end goal which for most will be to be out of pain. And celebrating the small wins along the way to reassure your yourself that you are doing something positive for your body.

  • Accept that the road to recovery won’t be linear

Having a set back or “flare” is normal and docent always mean that we have done something wrong or back to square one and that we can still move forward from there.

Ep. 029 – The power of paying it forward – Not so regular Joe interview w/ James Beck The Let me take a Selfie Podcast

In today’s “Not so regular Joe” episode we bring you a special guest all the way from Los Angeles USA, James Beck. James shares with us his incredible story of how he one day decided to give everything he owned away, and travel around 50 states to give his time to others and provide one act of service. In return, he asked those he served to Pay-it-Forward, which started an incredible domino effect in kindness and cooperative community.  James explains anyone can start to give back by simply doing an act of service. It can be as simple as smiling at someone in passing or holding a door for someone. Or even simply making eye contact to acknowledge presence. Enjoy the show!
