Diane Jacobs of SomaSimple tipped me off to this great little video that helps explain pain in under 5 minutes.
It is well worth reviewing a couple of times if you have persistent pain that has never been explained to you in a clear and concise way.
It was never explained to me. I had to search and dig for almost 10 years to find out what pain really was.
It also helps explain why Yoga works, and also why it doesn't sometimes. If we start to believe it is the poses or the breathing drill for a count of 10 that produced the magic we have completely missed the mark.
