Chronic pain relief—a complete program that targets emotional and physical trauma.
Full Description

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.

Review for Freedom from Pain

I've only been working with this program for 5 days and I already feel a noticeable difference in my tension and pain levels. It's amazing. The exercises are so simple you wouldn't expect them to make much of difference, but they do!

My biggest criticism is that the audio part is not as well done as it could be. The instructions are not always given slowly enough for following along. Also, the exercises that should be in audio format sometimes aren't, and vice versa. Lovingkindness really should be an audio, because of all the steps and affirmations you need to remember, and it's not. Yet instructions in journaling are unnecessarily given in audio. Minor quibbles, though. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone suffering from chronic pain.

Review for Freedom from Pain

Great book. So helpful for people with PTSD preceeding chronic pain. (Very common.)
