"Reversing Chronic Pain" helps readers forge a powerful partnership between the body and mind, heart and spirit to initiate a new chain of relief and balance. Each chapter presents a body-centred skill set that can be mastered through a broad menu of practice exercises. The resulting interlinked somatic building blocks help readers shift from physical pain to body awareness, and from unstoppable suffering to heart-felt connection.Self-treatment is the entire focus of this book. While most other pain methods stress compliance with medications or other interventions administered by professionals including physical therapy, acupuncture, or biofeedback, Phillips' plan puts special tools in the hands of readers, provides them step-by-step methods to make these tools their own, and results in a personalized pain prescription that creates a chain of new pain-resistant somatic experiences. Although the body is central to chronic pain problems, there are very few books that focus centrally on body healing. Because trauma is always part of the pain picture, either due to the initial trauma that triggered the pain problem or due to the fact that as the pain persists it becomes more traumatizing to the person in pain, it is essential to involve the body as the centerpiece of healing. "Reversing Chronic Pain" offers a dynamic framework for joining body and mind to speed the healing of traumatic pain from the body level up.
