A Musculoskeletal Health and Resilience Program.

Staff learn evidence-based practices for reducing stress, preventing injuries and living  with greater ease, happiness and resilience.

 

We are delighted to offer this four week program based on resilience themes and practices from our popular Wise program.

‘Wise Worker’ is a musculoskeletal health and resilience program designed to prevent injuries, reduce stress and improve psychological resilience. The core purpose of the program is to give staff members and opportunity to see how good they can feel in four weeks.

The curriculum is designed to teach participants how to integrate and apply mindfulness into their everyday lives, as well as how they can protect themselves from pain and injuries at home and in the workplace.

Embedded within the context of Mind/Body and Integrative Medicine, the program teaches evidence-based practices and tools for the cultivation of positive health behaviours, self-regulation and psychological  resilience. Group sessions are designed to educate staff,  improve workplace morale and assist in the prevention of wear and tear injuries due to postural dysfunction. Practical guided instruction from the facilitator assists with improving flexibility, reducing pain, increasing blood flow and circulation, promoting relaxation and improving overall wellbeing.
