Banyen's Description: 

For those 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 reveal a crucial missing piece for millions in need—the unresolved emotional trauma held within the body. The path out of pain is unique for each person, explain Peter Levine and Maggie Phillips. It’s a labyrinth shaped by physical

injury, genetics, learned responses, and—crucially—prior traumatic events. When all of these elements are successfully addressed, complete recovery begins. This book (also availabale as an abridged 2CD set) will teach readers how.

Informed by a broad new vision of the pain response, decades of clinical insight, and guided practices on audio CD, Drs. Levine and Philips teach us how to:

ª  calm the overreactive “fight” response to pain

ª  release the fear, irritability, and depression amplified by prior traumas

ª  build resilience and promote self-regulation

ª  target specific conditions such as joint and muscle pain, migraines, and the aftermath of surgical procedures

ª  amplify our current treatment program to achieve true, long-term freedom from pain.

“Brilliant, practical and wise, this is an enormously helpful book. I cannot recommend this work highly enough.” —Jack Kornfield, author of The Wise Heart

Peter Levine is the creator of Somatic Experiencing, a body-based approach to trauma recovery. He is also author of In an Unspoken Voice: How the Body Releases Trauma and Restores Goodness.

Maggie Phillips is also author of Reversing Chronic Pain.
