Dear Fellow TMSer,

Welcome to the TMS Wiki! We hope that it helps you on your journey of recovering from your TMS. You can explore the Wiki by using the sidebar of the left side of the screen, or by using the TMS search box on the top right of every page. Make sure to check out our Discussion Forum for support from people who have recovered or are recovering from TMS, as well as TMS practitioners. If you have any questions, feel free to email us at InfoEmailAddress.jpg.

Who We Are

We are a group of former TMS/PPD sufferers. We suffered for terrible pain and other symptoms for many years before finding this approach. We formed a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization called the PPD/TMS Peer Network (the PTPN for short). This wiki was the first project of the PTPN. Other projects and programs include our weekly drop-in chat, Peer Supervision Teleconferences and several mailing lists. We make no money off this website and have no financial ties to any of the medical or mental health practitioners we discuss on this site. Further, all TMS/PPD professionals on the site must adhere to our very stringent Conflict of Interest Policy.

The main contributors to the wiki are

Forest "I suffered from what I thought were Repetitive Strain Injuries for 19 years. I had pain in my hands, shoulders, neck, throat, upper back and right knee that made it hard to use a computer, handwrite, talk, sit at a desk, or even walk around. Now I do these activities freely."
HilaryN "I had Repetitive Strain Injury for 13 years and was completely dependent on voice recognition software to do my job. I recovered in October 2005 using a TMS approach and no longer need to use voice recognition. I have no restrictions on using the computer now."
MatthewNJ Coming soon...
Pandamonium "I suffered from 10 years of chronic & disabling back pain sometimes resorting to using a wheelchair. I was often restricted to my own home. I turned my life around completely within 12 months of discovering TMS. Now I do whatever I want physically and hardly give my back a second thought"
Peg Hanson Coming soon..
