Ease the mind, heal the body.
Mindfully Pain Free is a pain recovery coaching service that addresses the biopsychosocial needs of people living with chronic pain. We provide educational resources, private mentoring, group coaching, and mindfulness-based skills that reduce or eliminate pain. Using science-based resources, we introduced neuroscience, somatic mindfulness, and principles of Pain Reprocessing Therapy. Pain Reprocessing Therapy is a validated method of eliminating pain using cognitive and exposure-based techniques.

Bio: Marisela is a bilingual registered nurse and certified mindfulness teacher. She has 20+ years working in hospital settings (13+ years as a registered nurse) including two of the most renowned hospitals in NYC but after a work-related injury that caused her severe pain, she left the bedside. Through her own healing journey, she found passion and meaning in helping clients reduce symptoms of pain. Using a mind-body approach, she integrates Pain Reprocessing Therapy (PRT), breathwork, and somatic mindfulness to guide clients through their own recovery. Marisela has experience with Compassionate Inquiry (CI) and Trauma-Informed Care. She enjoys nature walks, traveling, and facilitating mindfulness retreats.
My experience with low back pain started in 2011, six months after I started my career as a registered nurse. Thankfully, an amazing orthopedic surgeon gave me a good prognosis, giving me the confidence to heal from my symptoms. Then after a surgical procedure in 2019, the symptoms returned. I had over 15 diagnoses and eventually was told I had fibromyalgia with chronic pelvic floor pain. My only options were medication management and nerve blocks for pain relief, I refused them all! I spent most of my days curled up in bed, hopeless, and carefully accommodating myself in any way that would allow me to lessen the constant pain.
Despite trying many methods, including different chronic pain programs, I became more debilitated. I went to more than 20 specialists and five physical therapy clinics, but I was still in pain. It wasn’t until a year later that I realized I had to stop. I decided to “stop looking for someone to save me.”
My meditation practices led me on a journey of self-discovery, and now I fully accept every moment of my life. I learned to experience all the different feelings that the hurt and pain were trying to mask. I have come a long way, and now my mission is to teach others “how to use self-awareness to be free from pain”.

FACTS ABOUT CHRONIC PAIN
Studies show that we have more than 6,000 thoughts per day. Worrying thoughts increase pain, cause anxiety, and activate our body’s stress response.
MY BRAIN KNOWS PAIN.
Pain is mostly due to a sensitive nervous system, and how the brain processes misinterpreted information from the body, and the environment.
THE FEELINGS IN ME.
Chronic pain can bring depression, anxiety, and hopelessness. Fear, and hypervigilance contribute to poor recovery, leading to long-term chronic pain symptoms.
THERE IS SAFETY IN ME.
When we feel safe in our body, we can be with our physical sensations, but we first have to understand how pain works.
VITALITY IS KEY
Research shows that exercise reduces pain and increases vital energy. Moving helps the body function better, which is essential in recovery.
Healing starts with self-kindness and compassion. When we show compassionate care for ourselves, we feel safe, loved, and rewarded.
