No matter how severe or persistent your experience of pain, it can be diminished – as How to liberate yourself from pain shows.

Down-to-earth, sympathetic and highly readable, this book turns our current understanding of pain on its head. It also readily acknowledges that pain without a clear physical cause is still very real indeed and shows why all pain is a combination of physical and psychological elements.

Packed full of effective, practical techniques for diminishing your discomfort, it shows how to identify and overcome any potential obstacles to getting better and how to ‘diagnose’ why the pain might be persisting. As the wealth of encouraging case histories show, combining these techniques with insights from the human givens approach has helped countless people overcome all kinds of severe and enduring pain, enabling them to lead productive and fulfilling lives once more. Now it’s your turn.


  • How all pain can be diminished
  • Why the language we use when thinking about or describing pain affects its severity
  • Why fear is the biggest factor in persistent pain
  • The reasons even doctors misunderstand pain and sometimes unintentionally frighten their patients
  • Why injured body parts may continue to hurt, even after they have healed
  • Arthritis or degenerative spinal changes do not have to cause pain
  • Why ‘hurting’ is not the same as doing harm – people too often avoid healing exercise because it hurts
  • Why stress, anger, depression and anxiety all exacerbate pain
  • How to use the mind/body connection to manage your pain.

  6. John

    This book provides easy to read and easy to follow advice about how to deal with pain from a truly groundbreaking perspective. The book describes how we all have innate emotional and physical needs that need to be met in order for us to stay emotionally healthy, and how not meeting these needs can lead to problems in both mental and physical health, including chronic pain. The book’s author is a highly qualified medical practitioner in the field of musculoskeletal therapy so is able to explain the link between physical and emotional causes of pain and how to deal with this quickly and effectively. This approach to pain management is definitely the way forward.
