Graded Motor Imagery course trailer

This course is open health professionals involved in pain and stress management.

Graded Motor Imagery (GMI) is an evidence based, graded, brain training programme which accesses the virtual body in the brain. It is useful for a wide range of chronic pain states where the central nervous system may be up-regulated, including osteoarthritis, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, phantom pains and ‘non-specific’ spinal pains. It gives new hope to many people in pain.

GMI involves the use of Apps, Flashcards, motor imagery, mirrors and Explain Pain education. In this course, participants are given the confidence and skills to use GMI immediately and to effectively integrate it into their current practice.

The course is structured around practical sessions supported by discussion of clinical applications.



The NOI Explain Pain course provides the educational underpinnings for the GMI course and as such is a prerequisite.

Bart van Buchem

Bart has been an integral part of Noigroup since 2012, initially leading the translation and teaching of Explain Pain in the Dutch language – Begrijp de Pijn. Ten years on, Bart is now Director of Noigroup European Operations, and is driving for broader access to courses and publications on the European continent.

A physiotherapist by background, Bart specialises in chronic pain-related conditions through his clinic in The Netherlands Praktijk Noorder Spaarne. This continued clinical contact allows Bart to educate in Explain Pain with a genuine knowledge of applying the principles to practice.

‘My main objective in teaching Explain Pain and other Noigroup courses is to offer a strategy to integrate the science in the clinic. There is no one size fits all, it’s all about crafting a unique style and approach.’

Bart would be happy to connect with anyone who has shared ambitions and interests in making pain science accessible for clinicians and patients.
