Pain is an output signal, a symptom, and not the cause. Yet, people often seek medical intervention because of it.
Of course, it is good to rule out more severe conditions.
But, when there's no underlying severe condition, there's a lot you can do to understand and live better with pain without medication.
The annual cost of untreated pain in the United States is between US$560 and US$635 billion.
Only by increased understanding can we move forward without fear, and I hope that by using this little guide, you'll get some tools and ideas to understand, act, reduce, and live better with pain.
Who am I?
My name is Kai Kjartan Høgberg. I am a father and a family man, a writer, a drummer, a professional bodyworker, and a movement teacher. I have an obsession with movement and high performance of any kind.
I've assisted and taught other professionals such as chiropractors, physiotherapists, massage therapists, personal trainers, and others nationally and internationally.
I have worked with clients for thousands of hours over 19 years, from the layman to the world champion and Olympic level. I have participated in sports such as cross-country skiing, speed skating, athletics, Tae Kwon Do, and scuba diving. I believe in self-education and simplicity and that anyone can improve their life.
What do people say about me?

You are GOLD :)" - Heidi
"Kai is a very competent person with a huge knowledge of how the body works." - Betty Johansen.
«Before I started with Kai, I did not want to grow old in my body, it has changed, and I now can say that my body fits the sheath.»
«You are the first to treat the entire body, not just where it hurts. It is illogical to treat only individual parts because, as you say, everything is connected.» - Emilie.
«The more awareness I gain around my body, the more I can feel it is benefiting.» - Cindy
