About Me

My name is Caroline Hoogerwerf and I have been a chronic pain patients for 9 years. Medical doctors couldn’t do anything for me anymore and I had to learn to live with it. I couldn’t accept that.

With my knowledge of the human body (MSc in Biology) and my eagerness to learn (Stichting ITON for practial neurobiology, a lot of books and articles) I found out there is a lot chronic pain patients can do by themselves.

The findings of my 6 step strategy out of chronic pain is summarized in the bestseller: The Pain Dance; How to Deal with Chronic Pain and Move Beyond Victimhood (download your copy now)

Step 3

With my book (the paindance) I was under the impression I gave everything a chronic pain patient needed to change their life from pain and misery to happiness and health. But then chronic pain patients started to ask me if I could coach them towards health. But chronic pain patients in  therapy tend to come back after two or three months. I studied why the results don't stay and how to change coaching and therapy. To remedy the chronic pain I came up with a complete program: Illuminating Pain. This is not just a piece of the puzzle. This is the whole system you need to change your mind, your lifestyle and with that your chronic pain.
