“Dr. Sarno saved me from a life of pain.” — Howard Stern
The New York Times bestseller that has helped thousands leverage the mind-body connection to heal lower back pain and live pain free—without drugs, surgery, or physical therapy.
Offering a surprising, noninvasive solution to an epidemic of pain, Dr. John E. Sarno’s research on TMS (Tension Myoneural Syndrome) reveals that stress, anxiety and other psychological factors, not structural abnormalities, are the root cause of chronic pain.
TMS develops as a result of repressed emotions which trigger tension in the body and deprive muscles and nerves of oxygen. The solution? Recognize the emotional roots of your TMS and sever the connection between mental and physical pain.
With Dr. Sarno’s expert guidance you will learn:
  • How the mind-body connection can permanently heal shoulder, neck, and lower back pain
  • How accepting negative emotions like anger, anxiety, fear, or grief can reverse physical symptoms
  • How we condition ourselves to think back pain is inevitable
  • Why you should resume physical activity as soon as possible
Sharing case histories and the results of his extensive, groundbreaking research, Dr. Sarno’s life-changing insights show readers how to banish back pain and reclaim their lives for good.
