Read on if you've ever pondered:
- "What is my future going to look like..."
- “If only I could just figure out how to manage my pain….”
- “I just need to get control of my emotions..”
- “Why am I always doing it wrong?’
- "Why am I such a piece of shit?” ← (this one is my brain's favorite)
Despite vicious thoughts and mental drama, you are a fucking badass.
You get through your days (like you have a choice?!), but it’s nothing like what you imagined life being.
Life wasn’t supposed to be so hard. So painful. You don’t want to feel irritated, anxious and just - triggered all the time.
You don’t want to have to be so damn mean to yourself.
And every time you think you are feeling good, and try to live life on your terms, pain slaps you in the face and re-ignites all the fear, anxiety & anger.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
What if the pain we just so desperately want to GO AWAY ...
...is actually an invitation?
HEAR IT FROM A PARTICIPANT!
"The first big takeaway for me was connecting my physical pain to unresolved/unexpressed emotional pain. It took all the fear away of "what is causing my pain? is it something that I can't recover from? etc." Once that fear was alleviated and my hope for the future was restored I could actually envision myself free and well - that meant everything. My second big takeaway is feeling validated as a person. I am much more relaxed and open around others and I've noticed my ability to write and create has opened back up. Thirdly, I am grateful to have a set of tools to use to neutrally observe my thoughts, feelings, pain symptoms etc and explore them. It's helped me to feel safe in my own head and more in control of my thoughts and feelings." - Elizabeth Whitesides
An invitation to turn towards it. To look inwards.
To sit with your pain, rather than operating from a place of constant tension and anxiety that's bubbling up from the inside.
To get to know every part of ourselves like we never have before.
To uncover the gold & the light that is already in us by sifting through the dark layers.
This is your official invitation.
This is Unweaving Chronic Pain.
In this space, we don’t shy away from dark and scary.
We embrace it.
We fucking celebrate it.
When we can be with the discomfort that is both within us and delivered by life (let’s face it, at this point it just feels constant), instead of wanting to run from it we can deeply look, explore, & get curious.
This is how we show up for our lives, how we can start a revolution:
Starting with our own bodies.
Learning to embrace what makes us different or the same.
Fully understanding what makes us human.
The patriarchy thrives on us attacking ourselves and trying to perfect away our human-ness.
The antidote is embracing your entire self, pain included.
Unweaving Chronic Pain is a self-paced program, backed by science and injected with love.
It contains 6 months worth of materials to satiate the hungriest growth & knowledge junkies...
While also presented in a way that encourages actual, implementable tools. Because without implementation, you can only get so far.
With life-long access, you are encouraged to go at your own pace. Whether this is savoring a week of materials for a full month. Or consuming 3 weeks worth in 3 days, and then letting it marinate.
You decide what works for you. No pressure. No timeline. Yet, there will be consistent support (through weekly coaching & an FB group) from me & others in the group.
You cannot get behind.
With a small cohort of humans who struggle with their chronic pain - just like you - we’ll unpack the layers of conditioning and programming that have disconnected us from our bodies. You’ll emerge with the tools, the confidence, and the chutzpah to show up for your life as you desire.
Imagine waking up, and it being OKAY that you aren’t sure what the day will bring.
It’s time for you to decipher the very personalized message your pain is trying to SCREAM at you.
And only when you start listening and building trust does it no longer need to scream so loud.
“My biggest challenge before working together was dealing with feelings of regret, shame and remorse. I felt like I had caused this re-injury by not taking care of myself as I knew I should and had a lot of negative self talk which was adding to the stress and probably some of the pain I was feeling. The biggest take aways for me were that the pain I was feeling although it was uncomfortable I had the power to shift how my mind and body reacted to the pain and was able to learn methods to calm my body down so I could focus on what really needed my attention in order to recover. The other big take away was realizing how much stress and my schedule were impacting my health and well being. I was able to find small ways to shift things to make time for caring for myself.” - Chelsie H.
Here is the magic that is included in the Unweaving Chronic Pain Program:
Learn how embracing your pain leads to relief & living life on YOUR terms.
Digging into Neuroscience
We will be laying down the foundations of the WHY & how the techniques you’ll be learning will actually work, all while beginning to turn inwards and access all the goodness that is inside us.
Building Your Toolbox
Learn the critical, life changing practices for transforming your relationship with your pain, while also exploring the external factors (ahem, the patriarchy & perfectionism) that impact us, and how these actually need to be processed differently
Everyone has it. So let's take away the stigma & fear around it.
Trauma always plays a role in chronic pain; in this module you’ll learn how to identify it and differentiate between the different types (including intergenerational trauma!).
Sitting with Discomfort
While deepening our practice, we will also learn to sit with discomfort: this is how we open our world, bringing expansive ease, energy, and brain space back into our lives.
Importance of JOY!
Learn how to cultivate and experience safe, authentic joy & desire (not that toxic positivity BS) on demand, and through your body’s movements.
Dismantle patriarchal programming of the “shoulds” around action/goals, and uncover how to take action WITHOUT burnout or hustle culture. We’ll celebrate how far you’ve come and develop your action plan for moving forward.

"Our first week of working together, I knew this was going to be different than other pain management strategies I had tried. And I was right. I was quickly able to 'let go of the rope" (the push-and-pull struggle with pain) which led me to acknowledge the reality that the more I focused on my pain and the harder I tried to "cure" it, the more it escalated.
I realized I was overloading myself with too many commitments & was inadvertently adding stress to my plate. Prioritizing a couple of healing strategies and taking a break from other things was a game changer! I also had significant emotional breakthroughs on Zoom calls with Andrea while doing somatic work - identifying where in my body I felt certain emotions and assigning them colors, textures and shapes.
I never would have thought this kind of approach would reveal repressed trauma and emotions, but things came to the surface that I didn't even realize were there. Realizing and acknowledging them helped me work through them. And they had been adding to the stress on my nervous system!
I now frequently use Andrea's words internally and in conversations with others - "Those emotions are valid; the deserve to be there and take up space!" My work with Andrea will be relevant for the rest of my life. My pain is not completely gone, but it is significantly lower after implementing the strategies I learned from her.
I am living a more fulfilling and active life and for the first time in a long time, I have hope that my autoimmune pain will eventually go into remission. I am now armed with the knowledge and tools to feel safe in my body and allow it to heal." - Chelsea R.
"Before signing up, I was worried about 'What if I spend all this time and money and it doesn't work? It'll be just another thing I tried that ended up not helping.' And then I'd have to finally give up on the possibility of running. Which (in my head) was the WORST POSSIBLE thing and I didn't want to have to deal with that.
Our work together was therapeutic, non-judgemental & comprehensive. It was incredibly helpful to work with Andrea who is so helpful with both the "top down" & "bottom up" aspects of my pain.
Not only can I run again, but the tools learned have been helpful for almost every aspect of life - from stressors with my dog to my business.
Now, I realize that "pain" doesn't (necessarily) mean that something is "wrong"/injured/something to fix. If my hip hurt on a run, it didn't mean all was lost and everything was terrible. It just meant... that my hip was making itself known. Now, on the rare times it hurts during walks/hikes/whatever, I'm not concerned that something is wrong. It's basically habit at this point to notice it & say "huh, my hip hurts", and think back to see if anything's been stressful, wonky, etc in my day-to-day life. I don't always come up with a specific/definite answer, but I definitely don't get stressed about the niggly pains that crop up here and there." - Stephanie Cleary
Hi, I’m Dr. Andrea Moore!
I’m a mom, wife and recovering health perfectionist. My entire career path has been based on trying to fix everything wrong with me: from chronic pain & post-concussive syndrome to anxiety & ADHD.
While I refused to accept this as my norm trying to implement what I thought was necessary to alleviated my symptoms felt exhausting, restricting & impossible.
Along my 15+ year journey, I became a Doctor of Physical Therapy, an Orthopedic Certified Specialist, Functional Nutritional Therapist, Life Coach and patriarchy & perfectionism smasher.
Through years of education, self healing & working with 100s of women, I've learned that it is always about coming back to yourself in order to live the life of your dreams. So now I guide other women who are suffering from chronic pain back to their bodies & living in a way that is aligned with the truest version of themselves.
“Growth is hard; it’s uncomfortable, challenging and overwhelming trying to figure out where to even start. In working with Dr. Andrea she immediately met me where I am. I am someone who has a difficult time not doing things perfect and the “right way” the first time. She helped me develop skills and a mindset where I could be gentle with myself and know that one misstep doesn’t mean failure, it just means you have to try again. One of the best tools she gave me was how to shift my language. Stress or a mistake isn’t something that we need to avoid, it’s something we need to embrace, learn from, and use it to propel us to continue to move forward. Dr. Andrea helped me learn how to dream again about things in life I was scared to dream about (family, career, big goals, etc.). I cannot thank you enough for all of the things you have taught me and compassion you gave me along the way.” - Heather Sankey
“Andrea’s consultancy takes a 360 perspective of wellness and helps you understand how different elements of your lifestyle impact each other. Her positive and practical approach helps you build a framework for success and identify realistic and empowering action steps toward meeting your goals… This program tackles a range of interconnected issues in fascinating, bite size chunks ensuring every exercise and interaction with Andrea is relevant, manageable, and directed towards getting you closer to who you want to be.” - Claire L.
To finally get to just…be. Be with yourself.
With loved ones.
And show up as your authentic self - without 95% of your brain being consumed with “how am I going to feel tomorrow if I keep standing?” or “I know helping to carry this will wreck my back, but I can’t admit I can’t do it”. How would it feel, the next time the fear & anxiety grips you - to know “Oh I see what’s happening, I got this”. And to then truly be able to take the next step rather than be consumed by it.
How would the world be different if you could show up as you - bringing your gifts, uniqueness, and special magic? And if you don’t know the answer - what if you could begin to find out? Even with your pain. What if you could drop the struggle with it, and see it as a light on your journey through life, as an ally, no longer needing to scream, because you finally understand how to hear it.
If you're ready to find out, enroll now!
"I found Andrea to be supportive, patient & flexible. She helped me learn that your brain and body are in a bio-feedback loop. It's not all in your body AND it's not all in your brain. And it's not static over time, your brain and body are co-creating your experience as you go along, so that's why you can change it." - Kara
My philosophy is that we are so disconnected from our bodies - not by our own fault - but because this is what we’ve been taught & modeled. We’ve been trained to seek external praise, approval & guidance for what is best for our own bodies.
But just understanding this doesn’t make it easy to start listening to ourselves. Because there are layers & layers of patriarchal, societal, and even learned programming ingrained in our nervous systems that make our brains feel that it isn’t safe to listen to ourselves.
So our brains often will actively stop us from trying. Or even when we do hear a message - we don’t trust it, or dismiss it. Or - very commonly, we interpret certain things as a message from our true, authentic self - when really - what we are hearing is a part of ourselves that is stuck in the past, desperately trying to survive - NOT thrive.
Thriving goes against how our brain’s evolved. It isn’t hard because anything is wrong with you.
Thriving is hard because our brains think thriving might put our lives at risk. And no one has taught you how we can show our brains safety, love & compassion. And when we can do this, we actually decrease the very nervous system sensitivity that leads to chronic pain in the first place!
This sounds great, but it is too expensive! Why does it cost so much?
First off, I hear ya. And it is because while I was forming it, I realized that making the kind of online course where people just sign up for a lower cost, and then never actually complete it (or complete it without implementing anything) didn't feel aligned. Nor did it feel aligned to only provide one phase of the transformation. At all.
This is not just an online course. This is a community with a very high touch level from me. I will be in the group with you, answering your questions & supporting you.
What you are getting is SO much more than 6 months of material and support. The tools you get in this course truly will transform the way you live your life, for the rest of your life. The ROI on this course is immeasurable - especially if you're someone who is an entrepreneur or chooses to work. And even if the ROI isn't financial, it will change the way you interact with the people in your life & the world, freeing up your time, energy & brain space.
Ultimately, this is an investment into yourself. And this can be fucking terrifying to do. Investing in myself was one of the scariest things I have ever done. Let's chat it out if you are feeling like you aren't worth this investment: sign up for a call with me to talk. This is not a pressure/salesy call. This is purely a place to to ask questions & address any barriers than may be getting in the way of your healing.
“I've tried everything already…why is this different?”
This is different because the focus isn’t about trying to get rid of your pain. The focus is on deeply getting to know, understand, and make space for your pain. Sometimes doing this lessens it or alleviates it completely, sometimes it doesn’t. But you’ll be learning to be with your body no matter what happens. And when you use these tools, we make SO much more room for LIFE to happen, because we are clearing out the energy-sucking analyzing, questioning, fear & anxiety that go along with pain.
I’m terrified this will be yet another failed program.
First off, so so much compassion. I get this fear so deeply. I cannot tell you how much I invested in myself, and almost didn’t invest in the program that transformed my own life due to this same fear. The thing is, this is impossible to fail. How people experience the outcomes WILL vary, but if you’re willing to show up, you will get outcomes. Things will begin to shift. If you know you need support, accountability and lots of love, then the VIP program is the perfect option for you, as I’ll be there to hold your hand & gently guide you throughout the whole program.
Will this program get rid of pain?
Maybe? I don’t know. This is actually NOT the goal. Even if it does (and it very well might - my clients have an extremely high success rate of significant pain reduction/alleviation!), no one is going the rest of their life without feeling pain again. So more importantly, this program provides the tools and know-how if and when pain does show up! Not to mention, this program goes so far beyond just addressing physical pain.
Will all my problems magically be solved?
Ok…this one is sorta a joke. But also, I know you want to know the answer. Because you’re probably a perfectionist. And I am a recovering one, and really, this is what I wanted to know from any program I was interested in!
Life is always going to have problems. Obstacles. Unexpected moments. The harder we try to avoid them (and don’t get me wrong, sometimes we absolutely CAN & should avoid them), the more they catch us off guard and throw us for a loop when they do happen. And the smaller this also makes your world. Because avoiding discomfort is possible only when we avoid challenges, trying new things, meeting new people, and just….living.
Your problems won’t magically be solved. Shit will happen. But it will no longer derail you for days (or weeks...or years). And even if it does, you’ll be able to catch it, and know what your next best step is. And really, hell, when you can do this, this basically does solve your problems, so through this lens, this course is basically cruelty-free, ethically-sourced magical unicorn powder, you’re welcome.
I have some serious trauma - is this right for me?
First and foremost, an online course is NEVER a substitute for individualized care, however, my clients have found it *amplifies* any 1:1 they are doing or have done in the past. If you know that you have “big T” Trauma, especially if you have never explored it with a practitioner, I absolutely recommend the VIP option, or even working with me as a 1:1 client. I am a trauma-informed practitioner, and if you’re having any concerns, sign up for a consultation, and let's chat to make sure this IS the right fit for you. My goal is to help women - and if I don’t think I can do that, I will make a much more informed and personalized recommendation after learning more about your story.
If you’ve worked closely with a therapist before, but things are still unresolved, this course is very likely an amazing option. And let’s chat more if you have any hesitations about your specific case!
Will you take me through actual exercises?
This is NOT a movement oriented program. While we absolutely will have “exercises”, most are mindfulness/somatic based exercises, so while they may include movement, movement isn’t required to do them. There are some exercises that DO involve movement - but not in the traditional “exercise” sense. The skills we go over in this program will prepare you to go on to do whatever movement you desire (and you absolutely can continue whatever movement or exercise you are currently doing) - especially if you’ve found fear, anxiety and/or perfectionism tend to stop you from being active in the way you desire. I will be helping you integrate what you learn here to any movement program you decide to begin either during the program, or anytime in the future!
But if I’m not trying to get rid of my pain, doesn’t that mean I’ll be stuck with it the rest of my life?
Let me first ask you this. Pause. Reflect. How much time, money & effort have you spent trying to fix it so far? If you’re still reading, it means that you still don’t have the result you want. Fighting it, and trying to fix it unfortunately hasn’t worked. If it was going to work, it would have already - because I KNOW you’ve been trying.
For some people, yes, their pain WILL stick around. But it was going to anyway. So the option is between spending even more time, money & effort (that will likely yield the same results you’ve already gotten) OR shifting your relationship with your pain, and learning to live a life you love…with your pain.
For others, this actually will lessen or alleviate the pain they are signing up for this program for. But again, this isn’t actually the goal. The other common outcome is due to the tools learned in the program, and the different way we approach pain, it can actually even mean that things you did try before, but didn’t work - may actually work in the future. That muscle that your physical therapist kept having to release, for example? This program might address why it kept tensing up - so next time they release it, it is finally ready to stay chill.
Is there a start/stop date? What is the time commitment?
Nope. You can join at anytime.
For the time commitment - it depends. The calls will be 1 hour every week. The materials are more DIY pace. I'd plan on setting aside 15-30 minutes 3-5x/week to start seeing massive shifts. But it is absolutely ok to start with less! And much of this work will be taught in a way that once you get the hang of it, you'll be able to integrate it into daily life as well.
This all sounds good...but I still have questions!
Of course! The best way to get these answered is to sign up for a consultation call with me! CLICK HERE to schedule!
"I cannot thank you enough! After years of being in the medical field, I feel as though I have finally been exposed to true healing. The biomedical model, unfortunately, does not provide such a pathway to healing and I am so grateful to have learned the process from you. I hope others can also learn: Be WITH the pain. Do not label it good or bad, do not judge it, but be curious about it. The pain is locked emotion and it takes time for those emotions to be identified and processed." - K.C.
