The Nature of Pain

The nature of pain is to constrict a person’s world. For people struggling with a progressive disease, it can be an amazingly subtle thing, where you look back after years and find that your existence has become dramatically smaller than you had even noticed. That, unfortunately, has been part of my journey, with an undiagnosed autoimmune disease that attacked my joints and crippled me for almost a decade.

Enter Tess McGinley at Spiral Path Movement. Her comprehensive approach to getting my body to move was a bright light through some quite dark times. Working within the parameters of what I could do, she stretched my world back out. From aligning the head (to improve overall balance) to strengthening the arches in my feet, her prescribed therapy fought against the constraints of pain and, step by step, made my life better. In addition, she always explained, in clear detail, why an exercise was important alongside thorough instructions on how to do the exercise.

I’m starting to remember what life without pain might be like. And for that, I will be forever grateful.
