Freedom From Pain
Discover your Body's Power to Overcome Physical PainBook - 2012
If you are 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 of pain and trauma recovery address a crucial missing factor essential to long-term healing: addressing the unresolved emotional trauma held within the body.
Informed by their founding work in the Somatic Experiencing® process and unique insights gleaned from decades of clinical success, Drs. Levine and Phillips will show you how to:
Calm the body's overreactive "fight" response to pain
* Release the fear, frustration, and depression intensified by prior traumas, and build inner resilience and self-regulation
* Relieve pain caused by the aftermath of injuries, surgical procedures, joint and muscle conditions, migraines, and other challenges
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.
