Reinforcing the "It's ok" message.

The essence of relieving the pain of CRPS/RSD is to retrain the brain. Performing the same movements but in a different way is presenting the brain with a fresh new experience. The video below of the Arnham land dancers is showing the dancers performing traditional dance movements but to a different beat. In a similar way I can change what I do by adding different elements like music, or locations or different temperatures or even eating different foods. Each or a combination will enrich the experience and help to retrain the brain that "it's ok".
