—Fred Gallo, PhD, author of Energy Psychology and Energy Tapping for Trauma

—Robert Scaer, MD, author of The Body Bears the Burden and The Trauma Spectrum

Those of us who have, or like me who once had, chronic pain, tend to cut ourselves off from our body, which disconnects us from the mind-body connection and engagement with our innate pain relievers. Dr Phillip's techniques are centered on finding and using your body's natural resources that can regulate its responses to pain. Pain is not only in the body, but is also governed by the brain. Pain signals are sent up the spinal cord to the brain, which then interprets them as a threat, which generates anxirty and pain, or as not a threat which then generates more neutral sensations. En route to the brain the pain sensations pass though 'gates' in the spinal cord. Certain experiences open the gates so that pain sensations pass through to the brain Other experiences close the gates and stop the pain signals from reaching the brain. This book teaches you many ways to control the pain gates so you can reduce the amount of pain that passes through.
Dr Phillips says that of all the people who have worked wih the program on which the book is based, ninety-five percent have improved, fifty percent have dramatically reduced their pain levels and their reliance on prescription pain medication, and about fifteen percent have discontinued pain medication while their pain rmains at significantly lower and livable levels.
