'Kairos' means: 'an opportune moment for change'. Kairos Rehabilitation concentrates on helping those who are suffering persistent pain and other hard to treat conditons, adults as well as children. Patients are encouraged and supported to play a more active role than usual in their recovery including steps in their personal development. Social, cultural and occupational opportunities add to the therapeutic effect.


Kairos' therapeutic methods are based on 'anthroposophic' medical concepts developed by Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) and employed in some NHS GP practices e.g. Blackthorn Trust in Maidstone. 



Aims of the approach in dealing with pain


  • To reduce the severity of symptoms including insomnia, exhaustion, anxiety and depression thereby restoring energy and vitality
  • To reduce dependence on medication
  • To improve personal confidence, self-esteem & sense of purpose
  • To tackle social difficulties, loneliness & isolation
  • To assisit with work & financial problems: job loss, debt & benefit claims



Eligibility and Referral Criteria 


Kairos is part of the local Circle MSK Greenwich service which provides muscular skeletal services including Pain Management for patients suffering persistent pain for more than 3 months who lives within the catchment area of Greenwich CCG. Your GP can refer you to CircleMSK and request Pain Management if appropriate.
