About NeuroNova Centre

Mindfulness-Based Chronic Pain Management (MBCPM™) is a programme developed in Toronto, Canada by Dr. Jackie Gardner-Nix, a physician and University of Toronto Associate Professor, who has worked as a chronic pain consultant for many years at University of Toronto pain clinics, including at St Michael’s Hospital, Toronto. Originally based on the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program (MBSR) originated by Jon Kabat-Zinn in the USA several decades ago, it has been developed into a Trauma-Informed and Trauma-Sensitive, researched pain management programme, more customized to the needs of those dealing with chronic pain. It is also as effective for stress management.
