Conscious Conversations, Breathwork for Chronic Pain with Steven Pratscher

Episode 15: Learn about the work Dr. Steve Pratscher is doing to help people heal low back pain with Breathwork.

Dr. Pratscher is a postdoctoral fellow in an NIH-funded Integrative and Multidisciplinary Pain and Aging Research Training program at the University of Florida. Steve received a B.S./degree in Psychology from the University of Illinois in 2015 and a Ph.D. in Psychology from the University of Missouri in 2020 with emphases in social-personality and positive psychology. His research there focused on the interpersonal and relational aspects of mindfulness and meditation. His current research focuses on developing and testing complementary and integrative interventions as possible treatments for chronic pain that also have the potential to improve whole person health and emotional well-being. The three primary areas of interest that he is actively working on are breathing self-management practices, multicomponent breathwork interventions, and psychedelic-assisted therapy.
