About Us | Learn Our Story | To Better Days

We want to make a difference 

Our mission is to help create a world with less pain and more understanding and compassion about what it’s like to live with a chronic condition.  We aim to be generous with our knowledge and share information, tips and insights we gain along the way, even if they are not always sales-generating. We want to create a community of people who believe in each other and themselves and feel empowered to take back control of their lives and step forward to better days.  

Our values are at the heart of everything we do

Relevant and supportive

We want to change people’s lives. We understand the challenges people face and are here to support them in ways that really matter.

Generous and kind

We are generous with what we know and what we do. We share what we learn and always act with kindness and generosity of spirit.  

Ambitious but humble

We believe our product will offer a safe alternative and help people feel positive about the future. We recognise chronic pain is a complex condition. We treat people as individuals and although confident in what we offer, are careful not to over-promise or give false hope. We are always honest about who we think we can help.
