Event Details

How to work stress and pain free. Prevention and recovery from workplace injury

There is no doubt that Dentistry is a very challenging profession. We work sitting down all day, in a confined space in a physically demanding position. Often it’s an emotionally charged environment and on people who for the most part, would like to be somewhere else. It is a recipe for STRESS!! Most of us have never been taught how to sit well and we often end up either tired, in pain or “crippled” at the end of our day.

This course has been designed specifically for all members of the dental team. While working in Endodontics for over 25 years, Dr Jones knows what problems the team experience and has found successful innovative techniques based on neuroplastic learning from the Feldenkrais Method. It is a profound but easy way to not only undo the damage already done, but to prevent work related injuries in the first place.

By addressing our bad postural habits this course can not only reverse some of the damage already done in the dental office but can prevent getting into trouble in the first place. It also has the added advantage of creating flexibility to improve your sports and fitness activities and help you come back to enjoying your body and grow old gracefully.

Dentists are encouraged to attend this course with their nurse.


Speakers for this event

  • Dr Penelope Jones

    Dr Penelope Jones

    Dr Penelope Jones practiced in an Endodontic Practice in Sydney for over 25 years after having been in General Practice in Sydney, Leeton and London for some years. In 1992 she completed 4 years of training to become a Feldenkrais Practitioner and Teacher at La Trobe University’s Lincoln Institute of Health Sciences in Melbourne. Her dental experience taught her what trials and difficulties Dentists and their staff can suffer. In the early days of practicing Dentistry she experienced serious ongoing pain herself almost to the point of having to retire The Feldenkrais Method became a tool for her to help herself and to begin to understand why Dentists and other seated workers have so many problems. The Method is excellent for addressing the fact that many of our problems come from bad postural habits. Most of us know this but have no way to change it
