Please join us for a conversation on the importance of emotional hygiene on the healing journey through chronic pain. We will view a video of a physical therapist and a psychotherapist briefly describing the interconnection of stressors, emotions, the nervous system and fascia, and how they affect the cycle of chronic pain. We will explore/review methods to heal the body-mind.
The Sooke Pain Self-Management Group, presented by the People in Pain Network, provides a safe environment to share the challenges and the solutions with others who truly understand. It helps reduce isolation, grieve the losses and gain an understanding of persistent pain and how you can take back control of your life. Meeting are held at the Sooke Region Volunteer Centre, 6672 Wadams Way, the 4th Saturday of each month from 1-3 pm. http://www.pipain.com/sooke.html
In October 2013 the District of Sooke declared the Sooke Region Community Health Initiative (CHI) as the official Age Friendly Sooke Committee. This committee went on to develop an Age Friendly Sooke Action Plan and Terms of Reference. They are currently working on setting more detailed priorities and action plans.
Everyone and anyone interested in supporting and enhancing the services and resources available to seniors in our community are welcome to attend. We welcome your participation and input.
The Sooke Region Volunteer Centre committee is open to all community members and representatives non-profit groups, clubs & organizations providing service in the area defined as the Sooke Region: East Sooke to Port Renfrew.
