Healing Visualization [2 Easy Wins for your Inner Game]

Healing visualization with Heather Pearson, back pain survivor and founder of the Pearson Method. This time we talk about two easy psychological wins, that are all about the visuals. Heather says: “Visualization is probably the most powerful psychological tool I've ever used with pain” Pain Chart - Easy Win #1 They say that the faintest ink is better than the best memory. Heather's first tip is to keep a pain chart. When you start to exercise there is a steady progress of improvement over time. It's easy to forget what your pain was like in the past. By keeping a chart of your symptoms you can see what it was like on any given day. This visual record of progress is a powerful motivator to help you stick to your training. The Art of Healing Visualization - Easy Win #2 Visualize yourself doing some activity, something that you have stopped doing because of the pain. The art of healing visualization goes further than simply picturing yourself doing that thing you're missing out on. It involves all the senses so that you really evoke the experience that you want back in your life. “When you get really deep into visualization, and seeing and feeling and tasting and touching it, you actually feel what you would physically feel if you were pain free. And that emotion makes you feel great” Meditation for Back Pain Meditation with a focus on the breath is a great way to properly relax and achieve a that 'Zen' state of mind. Heather's tip is to combine this kind of meditation with the healing visualization technique we were talking about. “Meditation, breathing, visualization is all very helpful for chronic pain” Weak Glutes and Lower Back Pain According to Heather, the lower back is often overworked to compensate for weak glutes and a weak core. This leads to lower back pain. Often one side will be weaker than the other. She uses 2 sets of scales to see which side of the body is bearing the most weight and will see differences of several kilos in some patients (1 kilo = 2.2 pounds). Heather advises against bilateral exercises, like squats, if you have weak glutes on one side. Unilateral exercise on the weak side is recommended for around 6 weeks Thanks for Listening! What psychological tools do you use to help you make progress? Has visualization worked for you? Let us know in the comments at https://www.backpainliberation.com/episode27 All the best Iain
