Healing Physical and Emotional Trauma, A Key to Long-Term Pain Relief
For those suffering chronic pain, even after years of surgery, rehabilitation and medication, only one question matters: How do I find lasting relief? With Freedom from Pain, two pioneers in the field address a crucial missing factor essential to long-term recovery, healing the unresolved emotional trauma held within the body.
The path out of pain is unique for each one of us, explain Peter Levine and Maggie Phillips. It's a labyrinth shaped by physical injury, genetics, learned responses, and 'crucially' prior traumatic events and suppressed emotions. When all of these elements are successfully addressed, true recovery becomes possible. This program will help you to initiate that shift.
Informed by their founding work in the Somatic Experiencing, process and unique insights gleaned from decades of clinical success, Drs. Levine and Philips will show you how to:
Calm the body's over-reactive 'fight' response to pain
Release the fear, frustration, and depression intensified by prior traumas
Build inner resilience and self-regulation
Relieve pain caused by the aftermath of injuries, surgical procedures, joint and muscle conditions, migraines, and more
Whether you're seeking to begin a self-care strategy or amplify your current treatment program, Freedom from Pain will provide you with proven tools to help you experience long-term relief.
