Are you caught in a cycle of pushing too hard on days you feel good, only to crash and burn - requiring days, weeks, or even months of recovery?

Only to repeat the cycle again. And again.

If so, pacing can help you find the stability your body needs. Pacing is the art of moving and resting just the right amount. It is an alternative to pushing through that allows you to prevent major flares, avoid deconditioning, and build a more sustainable life.

Pacing can help you...

  • Reduce Pain Levels

    Pacing allows most people to reduce pain levels and prevent flares by addressing the two main causes of chronic pain.

  • Do More in the Long Run

    Pacing isn't about doing less. It's about doing more of what is most important to you. It's about increasing your activity in ways that allow you to manage pain levels in the process.

  • Improve Your Quality of Life

    The overall goal of pacing is to improve your quality of life and help you develop a more sustainable way of living.

What People are Saying

"I have never learned more about managing my pain from anyone, even my doctors and therapists. I think it is well worth the price, and it was easy enough for me to complete from bed, which was especially helpful!" - Blythe Bouchard

"What I really liked about this course was the variety of pacing solutions offered. What works for one person may really not suit another and the different styles mentioned were really great." - Ruthy Websdale

Why Does Pacing Work?

Research suggests that pacing works because it addresses the two main causes of chronic pain

1. Pacing allows people with chronic pain to slowly increase muscle strength and function without aggravating the original injury or illness. 

2. Pacing allows people with chronic pain to slowly increase tolerance to stimulus without aggravating an over-reactive nervous system.
