Interested in Hypnotherapy for Pain Management?
I don’t often recommend any one person, program, resource directly, as I like to offer a variety of options for my clients – and will always endeavor to do so. But I find that sometimes, my life brings me something I MUST SHARE, when I feel it’s such a wonderful fit.
My very longtime friend, David Schechter, M.D., Board Certified Sports Medicine/Family Medicine Physician with a credential in Pain Medicine practicing via Tele-Health, and with an office in Culver City, CA.
Dr. Schechter is a wonderful resource for my clients who require pain management. Not only does he have many years of experience, he studied directly with Dr. John Sarno, a pioneer in mind/body medicine, who famously connected emotion’s significant impact to pain, and coined the term Tension Myositis Syndrome (TMS), on which my own Pain Management work is based!

Not only does Dr. Schechter provide personal medical support, but I strongly recommend his books for my clients, for support and background regarding our hypnotherapy Pain Management sessions.

UNDERSTANDING AND HEALING FROM TMS: DIAGNOSIS, TREATMENT, PSYCHOLOGY – TMS is a way of understanding and treating pain that focuses on the psychological rather than the structural or chemical. The book attempts to explain that mind-body connection, clarify who is a candidate for this approach, and detail the relevant psychology of the condition. The treatment for TMS is education and psychological insight, hence the emphasis on educational materials in this field. (description from Amazon)
