‘So what is pain?’
‘How do nerves work?’
‘How can I change my pain experience?’
This is the first release from the new Singing Dragon imprint based out of Jessica Kingsley Publishers in the East End of London. The brainchild of Steve Haines, this is an examination of the nature of pain in illustrated format. In this short, research based graphic novel illustrated by Sophie Standing (who is also part of the creative collective DOSED) we can observe how strange pain really is and presents an amazing new approach to deal with this pain.
“… this succinct and wonderfully illustrated book is the perfect resource for educating people about why they experience pain, and how they can ‘unlearn’ it” – Brooke Thomas, movement educator and creator of the Liberated Body Podcast.
With outstanding and humorous artwork by Sophie they have created an educational tool for the healthcare professionals, chiropractors, shiatsu practitioners and therapists.
Steve is a chiropractor himself and has been in healthcare for over 25 years. and, with Sophie, has created an imaginative, creative and informative use of the medium we all love.
There is much more to come from the newly formed Singing Dragon imprint and they all promise to be interesting. Genuinely a company that you need to keep an eye on.
