Over one hundred & sixty million Americans suffer from chronic pain. Mainstream medical techniques have few weapons in their arsenal to fight this insidious illness. Chronic pain patients are increasingly turning to alternative therapies in search of relief from the relentless & exhausting discomfort. CHRONIC PAIN: TAKING COMMAND OF OUR HEALING focuses on the effect of emotional trauma on chronic pain & suggests ways in which releasing emotional trauma can reduce or eliminate chronic pain. Based on the experiences of William Anderson, Ph.D., a pain management consultant & therapist, the book uses the experiences of Dr. Anderson & his patients to illustrate the types of personality profiles which people with chronic pain seem to fit & provides breathing, visualization, & relaxation exercises to begin the exploration of their pain & ways in which they can take command of their own healing. The book urges a heavy dependence on intuition in selecting therapies & a positive, clear-sighted view of how to deal with this intrusion of pain.
