This month we talk with Mags Clark-Smith MA, PGCE, a movement specialist and Director of Resolving Chronic Pain, with clinics based in Ireland and Scotland.  Mags is a Stress Illness practitioner, University Lecturer and researcher in dance, movement and psychology and is a member of the Irish Pain Society.

This month she speaks with Chronic Pain Ireland on How movement can calm the mind and how the detailed precise approach fits with new evidence concerning pain in the brain.

Throughout this live and interactive talk she will:

1. Summarize key research and clinical concepts that underlie the relationship between movement and pain science.
2. Identify some disorders that are likely to benefit from this
3. Understand the limitations and clinical caveats to this approach

Event takes place Tuesday March 15th from 2:00-3:00 p.m. via Zoom.
