Over my 27-year career as a chiropractor, I have witnessed numerous advances in the art of healing pain. However, the increase in people with chronic and persistent back and neck pain has continued to rise despite our best efforts. I felt that it was time to take a fresh approach.
Two years ago, I was introduced to the work of Dr. John Sarno, Professor of Rehabilitative Medicine at New York University Hospital. For 30 years, Dr. Sarno had been treating and writing about the mind-body connection, stress and its contribution to the current pain epidemic.
I witnessed firsthand the unconscious mind’s power, not only in my patients and friends, but in myself as well. During a struggle with plantar fasciitis in both feet, I applied Dr. Sarno’s principles and was cured in one day! No stretching, no exercises and no therapy.
I made a decision to bring these principles to a greater audience and, with Dr. Sarno’s generous encouragement, immersed myself into the field of mind-body healing. This program is a synthesis of what I consider to be the best of the material available. It is a simple, workable, 3-step process that anyone can follow.
