Editorial Reviews

Review

“Maggie Phillips uses her considerable expertise in hypnosis, Somatic Experiencing®, and the treatment of pain to create an intelligent, holistic, refreshing new roadmap for reversing pain. Her approach is smart and sophisticated, yet user-friendly and accessible. Most important, her methods work.”
—Belleruth Naparstek, LISW, author of Invisible Heroes: Survivors of Trauma and How They Heal and creator of the Health Journeys guided imagery audio series

Reversing Chronic Pain offers specific, practical, and effective pathways out of physical suffering. Perhaps more important, it provides hope, so desperately needed by people who have been dragged by persistent pain into hopelessness and despair.”
—Bill O'Hanlon, author of Do One Thing Different: Ten Simple Ways to Change Your Life, Thriving through Crisis, and Pathways to Spirituality

Reversing Chronic Pain is a tremendously helpful guide for dissolving fear and trauma that perpetuate chronic pain. Maggie Phillips’s gentle and soothing style is wonderfully reassuring and healing. Simply reading this book will lend some relief, but when you use the techniques, well-deserved miracles are bound to happen.”
—Fred Gallo, PhD, author of Energy Psychology and Energy Tapping for Trauma

“Reversing Chronic Pain fills a niche that has been sorely lacking in the pain management field. An important book for physicians, psychotherapists, and anyone who suffers from this ubiquitous and poorly-understood condition.”
—Robert Scaer, MD, author of The Body Bears the Burden and The Trauma Spectrum

“Maggie Phillips has written the first truly multi-modal, mind-body therapy self-help book for people with chronic pain. She offers usable, nuts-and-bolts techniques that can be used by readers in pain and pain professionals alike. I could not put this book down.”
—Bruce N. Eimer, PhD, ABPP, author of Hypnotize Yourself Out of Pain Now and Pain Management Psychotherapy

24 of 25 people found the following review helpful By Dr. Albina Tamalonis on November 24, 2007
Format: Paperback
Maggie Phillips's Reversing Chronic Pain takes a tremendous amount of up to date scientific information on pain management and presents a beautiful case for mind-body healing and the reversing of chronic pain. Even as a psychologist who has been doing mind-body work for 25 years, I learned new breath, mindfulness and visualization techniques proven to close the gates of pain. This book presents a comprehensive self-help plan but I found it can be useful as a companion to psychotherapy, hypnotic work and EMDR. I especially like her inclusion of body issues such as energy psychology and movement so often missed in books of this type. The addition of her thoughts on spirituality and love offers reassurance and relief for those who can believe and shines throughout Dr. Phillips' caring book.

Format: Paperback
Psychologist Maggie Phillips new book,"Reversing Chronic Pain," is an absolutely indispensible resource for anyone suffering with chronic pain or anyone working with those who are. There are many things to love about this book, but I will focus on just a few. She manages to clearly and concisely explain the relationships between the mind and the body and between pain and negative emotions without oversimplifying--a major achievement. She also identifies the power of words to add to or alleviate the trauma of pain, as when she discusses the difference between words like "psychosomatic" and "mind-body" or between "self-treatment" and "rest." Perhaps most importantly for those suffering with chronic pain, she introduces an amazing variety of approaches to working with pain--psychological techniques (guided imagery), meditation, body and energy therapies, nutritionals, and medications. Quite simply, this is one of the best self-help books for working with chronic pain that I have every read. BUY THIS BOOK!

As a psychologist I have treated chronic pain for many years. This is by far the best resource for learning to manage chronic pain that I have ever seen. The author combines informative and accurate information about chronic pain from medical science with the discoveries of mind-body techniques that can help in coping with pain. Amazingly, the author has been able to do this without excessive professional talk so the average reader can benefit from what she has to offer. James L. Helmuth, Ph.D.

I am a trauma therapist. I have this book in my library and I also recommend it to clients. Maggie Phillips is one of the foremost experts on the subject of chronic pain. She presents her material in a compassionate and concise way. All methods don't work for every person but there are enough options in this book that you can most likely find something to ease the pain. I have had clients that I have observed doing what this book says in the title: Reversing Chronic Pain. The book offers hope in what sometimes feels like a hopeless situation. Please try it if you are experiencing chronic pain.

This book is a great guide to finding ways to reduce personal perception of pain. The author makes no claims to cure the underlying problem but offers many options to help one manage pain. Each chapter has several options and each person can choose what combination of activites works for them. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
In Reversing Chronic Pain, Dr. Maggie Phillips empowers sufferers of chronic pain to become self-healers and, thus, actively participate in their wellness and overcome feelings of helplessness. Dr. Phillips has assembled for readers powerful healing tools garnered from her own impressive expertise and that of experts in the fields of Trauma Healing, Energy Psychology, Somatic Experiencing, and Exercise Physiology. Her explanations are thoroughly professional and yet easy to understand and put to use. Case examples make clear how this system works and demonstrate her caring, encouraging, and gentle style as a therapist and trainer.
This book has improved the effectiveness of my work with patients and should be on the shelf of every therapist and patient who threats and copes with chronic pain.
-- Neil Fiore, PhD, author of Awaken Your Strongest Self, The Now Habit, and the forthcoming Coping with the Emotional Impact of Cancer
