The science behind the Reducept Method
The Reducept Method trains the brain to reduce pain. For this we use scientific knowledge about digital training, pain education and psychology. By cleverly combining these three, we have developed our unique Method.
Train your brain
The Reducept Method functions like a gym for your brain, without having to leave your home. By exercising regularly, you can teach your brain to increase control and reduce pain. Train towards a ‘muscular’ brain that has more grip on your pain in the long term!Join our Free Live training
For those who like to know and understand
There is a lot of evidence that digital training decreases pain. Together with leading institutions, we have scientifically researched that the Reducept Method has a significant effect on pain levels. Learn more about our research.
