Chronic Pain has been put into the “too hard basket,” and if we talk about the 1.7 billion people affected throughout the world, we know that the conventional approach of trying to fix the physical issue in isolation is failing.
SYLVIANE HAS SPECIALIZED IN THIS AREA OF HUMAN STRUGGLE FOR YEARS NOW, AND PEOPLE WHO COME TO HER HAVE USUALLY ALREADY TRIED EVERYTHING, BE IT PHYSICAL THERAPY OF ALL SORTS AND EVEN SURGERY. THEY COME BEATEN, HOPELESS AND CONFUSED.
One of the things they say made a huge difference in their lives from the first time they met Sylviane is that they “… feel as though (they) had been listened to.” Not just their back, neck, or knee has been heard… but their entire being! And in that moment, healing has already taken place by switching the light on where there was only confusion and despair.
Underlying Sylviane’s life work is the power of intuition and the ability to interpret the interrelationship between the mind and the body; in other words, she has developed the skills to read how the body translates and experiences our belief system and our emotional stories in its posture, movement, pain… As we dive into the science behind intuition, the dominance of our unconscious, we start to learn how to read this “new” information and to apply it to our lives, our relationships, and the way we interpret the world and make decisions. ”This is critical to the relationship we have with our clients, patients and is the beginning of the healing or transformative process. People feel heard and understood at a very deep level and it makes a real difference especially when it is reinforced by scientific based assessments and the rehabilitation programs that are tailored designed and taught in the same spirit”
The result is that the quality of our relationships with ourselves and others becomes more powerful and true. It is not anymore about who is wrong or who is right; it is about who is true to oneself and others. And with our clients or patients it allows us…” to look at the person experiencing the pain rather than just look at the pain experienced by the person” says Sylviane.
There are ways to listen and ways to look at people’s bodies that give us information about the reality of the present moment, allowing us to navigate any situation in an inspiring, supportive, and powerful way. We call this postural psychology. It is an integrative part of addressing chronic pain, and most importantly, it opens one door into the future of health and healing.
