SOMATIC COACHING with BETSY JENSEN
Healing Chronic Pain with Neuroscience, Nervous System Regulation, and FUN!
Healing Chronic Pain is Possible!
After 20 years as a Physical Therapist, my own health issues (ulcerative colitis, IBS) led me to the somatic approach.
After learning the new nueroscience of pain, that most chronic pain is like a habit of the brain that can be rewired, I knew I couldn't treat the same way.
Now I teach research based neurocience tools for pain reprocessing (PRT), and somatic techniques for nervous system regulation.
No more painful exercises or stretches.
I help you integrate somatic techniques into your life while getting out of pain, and having more fun!Learn more about Somatic Coaching

Episode #69- The Pain-Fear-Pain Cycle
This episode is all about how fear of pain causes the brain to CREATE more pain- the Pain-Fear-Pain Cycle.
The way you recover from pain depends on how you respond to pain signals in your body.
Many people with chronic pain tend to "catastrophize", or attach greater meaning or significance to pain. There are also physiologic changes in the brain, making chronic pain sufferers more hypersensitive to perceived threats.
These things actually cause the brain to create more pain signals. Real pain that is felt in the body.
How you react to pain makes a difference, so listen today and see how you can learn to rewire your brain!
Episode #97- Top 3 Things To Do if You Have Chronic Pain
In this episode I wanted to simplify the three main concepts that I have found most important in getting out of chronic pain or disease.
1-Detective for the Opposite- This is the best place to start, by changing what you focus on
2-Understanding and Regulating the Nervous System- Notice when your body is in a survival state and develop a toolbox to use to regulate. The techniques can be top-down (thought based), or bottom-up (somatic).
3-Compassion- Self compassion in the process can be the most challenging, but necessary part.

Episode # 65- Interview with Dr Howard Schubiner
In this episode I interview Dr. Howard Schubiner- a Pioneer, Researcher and Leader in Mind-Body Medicine.
Howard is such a kind and sweet person, and explains pain and neural circuits in a compassionate, scientific, and easy to understand way.
He has developed a protocol for diagnosing neural circuit pain (also called neuroplastic pain, neurogenic pain, TMS, Mind-body Syndrome).
And he trains medical professionals to unlearn what they have been taught, and become aware of the role the brain plays in generating pain.
Today’s episode covers understanding the brain’s role in pain, and how to tell if your pain is a neuroplastic.
“Betsy’s coaching is unparalleled in combining the latest neuroscience, life coaching tools, and somatic experiences to deeply understand the cause of your pain or physical symptoms and to move forward with healing.
Through my work with Betsy, I’ve healed decades-long chronic diagnoses and come off of ALL of my medications.
I know it sounds too good to be true but it isn’t – Betsy has it figured out and she can help you!” -Katrina Ubell, MD ("Weightloss for Busy Physicians" Lifecoach)
