What are people saying:

57 Year Old Woman

Recovery from severe shoulder and arm pain in a 59 year old woman

My life is basically back to normal, plus I’m less afraid to try new things. I know what its like to be constrained by pain, and now I know what its like to feel free again.

Why not try new things? I feel my mind is liberated too and I’m ready to do things that I never would have imagined.”

You’ve seen the doctors and they ran the tests but couldn’t help much.  Maybe you saw the physio, chiro, osteo or the acupuncturist.  Or you did a multidisciplinary pain clinic and some CBT to help manage the pain. Have you spent thousands with limited pain relief?

A lot has changed in the last ten years in the neuroscientific understanding of chronic pain.  Mindbody treatment was pioneered by Dr John Sarno in the 1970’s and although there were many anecdotal (non peer-reviewed) reported cases of substantial recovery from chronic pain, until recently there wasn’t much science to back it.

In the last decade though, really good scientific evidence has been emerging that mindbody treatment offers something new and superior for most chronic pain conditions.  By changing the state of the brain and the nervous system, and working in a specific way with both thoughts and unconscious neuropsychological processes, most people can improve substantially or recover fully from their chronic pain.

The Freedom From Chronic Pain program was created by Australian psychotherapist Hal Greenham and U.S. Professor of Medicine Howard Schubiner MD, FACP.  We invite you to read some more about this treatment below and reach out to us to see if this may be appropriate for you.

Recovery from chronic back pain and reduced medication use in a 79 year old woman

Moving from bed to chair and back to bed was no life. I did get good relief lying in bed but I did not want to spend the day and night on my bed!

I have been working through the Freedom From Chronic Pain program for 3 months now and really appreciate it. I have not had rapid dramatic improvements but comparing where I am today to where I was when I started yes, the change is dramatic. All my problems are a lot better – less bloating, much less pain, eating better and feeling better in myself.

I was having 6 Panadol Osteo a day but now only require 1 or 2 – I have more of this work to do and I really think I should be able to do without them altogether.

(Update 4 weeks later) – I am no longer needing to take any Panadol Osteo and my symptoms are getting better and better, the more work I do on them.”

Recovery from hip and back pain in a 65 year old woman

I’ve struggled on and off with intermittent back and hip pain for years. Finding the mindbody approach has been fantastic for me and meant I’ve been able to effectively manage the pain without paying for osteo and other therapies I used to do.

Read the case study

I got a lot from Dr Sarno’s books but found I needed some extra help. The Freedom From Chronic Pain program provided lots of great material to make the treatment applicable to my situation. It’s so supportive to be able to talk with a properly trained mindbody practitioner for when I feel stuck.

After finding it difficult to walk for a period, I used the mindbody approach to overcome my hip and back pain. A few weeks later, I noticed I was getting strong tinnitus after a stressful incident. I found when I applied the mindbody principles this symptom no longer worries me anymore, and I’m still on top of my hip and back pain without needing drugs.

It’s amazing stuff, this course… you have to work at the program, you can’t just forget about it, but you can get great results if you do. To overcome my symptoms without drugs is so empowering, I love it.
