Retrain Back Pain® is the confluence of over 20 years of continuing education with a variety of healing modalities and it incorporates best practices from some of the greatest movement mavens from around the world. This program was created from from my own driving need to find a better way to think, eat, move and deal with recurring back pain.
If you’re the type of person that prefers trying holistic, non-toxic protocols before taking prescription drugs and considering surgery then you’re in the right place.
Retrain Back Pain® empowers you to identify and better manage the circumstances which worsen your symptoms and it will provide you with a plethora of diverse tools from many disciplines so that you can reverse the curse of this dis-ease.
Who am I? I’m wise, witty, fun, fearless and almost fifty. I’m a dedicated wife, a loving mama and a loyal friend. I’m also a voracious non-discriminatory student of “that which heals” ensuring that I’m always learning, always improving, neither complacent nor attached to the knowledge or the ways that I already hold as true. I am honored and delighted to be celebrated as “a teacher of teachers” to my fellow colleagues.
Everyone has a story about how or why their back pain came about. This lens through which we see our dis-ease is important and sometimes it offers insight as to our best way out.
Keeping it short and sweet, my own story sounds like this: I worked very hard for ten years in a high-stress corporate job, switched to teaching yoga, lost both my parents, lost strength, got too flexible, got married, became a nutrition counselor and health coach, got pregnant, hurt my back, got pissed off at feeling so disempowered and lame, discovered Yoga Tune Up®, then NeuroKinetic Therapy, then Retrain Back Pain®.
I was diagnosed with disc degeneration, compression, herniation, scoliosis, sacroiliac joint dysfunction and spondylolisthesis. The professionals I saw all had vastly different opinions on my situation and very few of them provided me with any hope of recovery or tools with which I could begin to help myself.
These days I almost never feel back pain. Am I healed? Maybe. It’s not important. What’s important is feeling well. These days I move well, I move often and I move freely, without hesitation, with strength and confidence. I want to share everything I know so you can feel like yourself again too. That’s my mission, to “Empower. Every. Body.”
"NO MORE BACK PAIN! I've waited a long time to find a professional (bodyworker, therapist, yogi, trainer) like Dinneen! I started working with Dinneen for my back pain, but we didn't start on my back, she started at my fallen arches, then we worked on the valgus knees and now we're unwinding some crazy sacroiliac dysfunctions. Even the back "work" that we've done is unlike anything I've done in 6 years in and out of physical therapy. I feel like a whole new person. I am much more aware of how I move, sit, stand and run. Yes, I am running again! Dinneen is very experienced, very professional, and very easy to work with. Her understanding of anatomy informs her keen eye in assessing dysfunctional movement patterns and restoring movement is an organic and ingenious way."
