Publisher's Summary

Think Away Your Pain presents a revolutionary approach to relieve suffering and eliminate chronic pain. In this user-friendly clearly written book, you will learn how chronic pain becomes a condition of the brain as much as the body. Think Away Your Pain shows you how to use the immense power of your thoughts and beliefs to literally change the neural circuitry of your brain. Dr. Schechter combines scientific evidence with clinical experience and psychological insight to teach a systematic method to control and eliminate pain with the mind. With 25 years in the field, Dr. Schechter has cured thousands of patients with this mind/brain based program. This book teaches the TMS healing method where changing thought, expressing feelings, and understanding can and do change the neural circuitry of the brain and eliminate the pain. Dr. Schechter discusses research supporting this approach including research by the author. Some will find this a more contemporary version of John Sarno's books on this subject. Others will find this a fascinating interface between medicine, psychology, and neuroscience. For the chronic pain sufferer limited in function, distressed by suffering and hopeless about the future, this book offers realistic hope.

A must read for sufferers of chronic pain

My mum read this book a few years ago and it cured her RSI. I’ve been suffering from chronic migraine for almost a year, so I thought I would give it a read. I have already tried pharmaceuticals, chiropractic, physio and acupuncture, with only temporary relief. When I started reading this book my pain was absolutely debilitating. 2 days later my pain had substantially decreased and I was able to resume most daily activities. I am very excited to work on this method for the next few weeks. It has given me real hope or regaining a normal life.

At last some relief

Brilliant book. A wonderful approach to addressing pain. Reassuring and a great way to get a head start and begin addressing chronic pain. Many thanks.

Ready To Do The Work!

Very insightful. I purchased the workbook while listening to the audio book and I am ready to dive into the process. I have been living with chronic pain for 29 years. I've tried EVERYTHING except surgery. It is time to once and for all live pain free. I am ready, I am excited, and I am motivated by Sarno's and Schechter's books. Looking forward to being in control of my health.

Great but missing something.

I really loved this book because it offers possible solutions to my chronic pain disorder.
I think that it world have been great if it included additional material (PDF), like the tender points location, other diagrams ans the TMS oriented doctors in the area, etc.
The narrator (the author), was very clear, concise and no complain about that, it was like he was talking directly to me.

Dear Author: Please hire narrator next time.

I get it. You wrote the book and now you feel you are the best person to narrate it. There's a huge difference between reading a book out loud and "performing" it. This book was painstakingly read and it shows. I am glad this was not my first intro to this topic, so I stuck with it. Otherwise I would have lost interest after chapter 1.

End your back pain!

The concepts and methods in this book represent new hope for those who suffer from a variety of malaise without definitive physical cause. The more we learn about mind/body medicine, the less likely we will be to spend time and money on treatments that quite simply don't work. The performance in the audio book is a bit uneven, but it doesn't significanly detract from the content.

Life Changing Information

I don’t usually write reviews but I so wish everyone could benefit from Dr. Schecter’s book as I did. I struggled with chronic leg and hip pain for years but after reading this book I was able to interpret and react to my pain differently. I began to understand that my pain was not structural in origin, and that my mind was creating and intensifying my pain. I was able to lose my fear of exercise, and regain my quality of life. Dr. Schecter clearly and carefully explains the mechanism behind our interpretation of pain, and how our past and present emotional issues contribute to pain. I highly recommend this book to anyone experiencing chronic pain.

Lots of good info

He takes Sarno's work and adds more in-depth explanation of the science. It's a dry listen, probably better to read (lots of bullet points), but some good additional info. I wasn't listening to experience a good performance after all.

Great and very helpful book

I really appreciated this book on every level. I’m so pleased that the author narrated it himself. I realise this is a lot of work but it was so good to have his character and genuine caring came across through his narration. I also particularly appreciated his very systematic and methodical approach to the subject. I’m looking forward to getting the workbook off his website. Thank you Dr Schechter for doing an audio version as reading is difficult for me currently but I’m sure once I’ve put these principles into practice I will be back to reading and many other things I haven’t done in a long time.
