  • My Story

    I am offering TMS coaching, specializing in contacting different parts of ourselves, inner critic awareness, and self-empathy. My experience with TMS is that it is a deep inner calling to come home to one's self. Contact me through this site with a message. Or here: http://tmspainrelief.com/ See my story below.

    3 years worsening foot pain, in the arch of the foot. 14 doctors, blood platelet injections, 3 sets of orthodics, low dye taping, physical therapy, sports medicine, etc etc. MRI, emg (nerve testing), ultrasound imaging, Dr Dellon's pressure sensory device testing for neuropathy. Diagnosed with plantar fasciitis, then neuropathy and tarsal tunnel (nerve entrapment). Pain so bad that I could barely stand more than 15 minutes, minimum walking, wheel chairs and crutches for stores, lost all my former life of activity. 2 weeks from "tarsal tunnel" surgery I began Sarno's practices. 2 months into it, my first overnight hike (8 miles round trip), and my first backcountry skiing. Less than a year later, ski around Crater Lake, breaking trail by myself, 10 miles a day with backpack. Pain 98% gone. I have my life back.

        Hi giantsfan,
        That is a photo in Val de Aosta Italy, with a friend. I have skied Whitney, years ago, down the trail route. Beautiful granito!! Hope you get up there soon, or perhaps when the snow melts for the year.

        Hi IrishSceptic, I appreciate you learning about my situation! I feel so absolutely lucky to find, and then persist (against my resistances) with Dr. Sarno's method. I already knew the psychodynamics in me, and that was a huge help! It all made sense.

      Andy I'm curious! I've had foot pain for 7 years (sounds very similar to yours) and I think it's tms but in the last 4 months my left foot has been swelling. Did you ever have any swelling with tms in your feet? Thank you Andy! You are an inspiration to me!!
