Dear,

Hello, my name is your name and I am a member of a nonprofit, the PPD/TMS Peer Network (PTPN), that focuses on the treatments of somatization and chronic pain. I have been perusing your website recently and have seen many similarities between your approach to chronic pain and the one we promote, TMS. In short this approach treats chronic pain as caused by psychological issues such as stress, anxiety, and past trauma. One practitioner, Howard Schubiner, MD, recently published a RCT study showing the efficacy of the approach in curing people from chronic pain. I would love to learn more about your approach to treating chronic pain and if you are are familiar with TMS and the work of Dr. John Sarno.

If not, there is a great deal of information about it on our website, and I would love to discuss the approach with you as well. If you are interested, I could also send you more information about it, and put you in contact with other physicians who have experience successfully treating patients using the TMS approach.

Our mission is to increase awareness of somatization by promoting evidence based treatments for it. Our website ( http://www.tmswiki.org/ ) has a doctor and therapist referral list, and we are interested in adding more practitioners in New Zealand to the list. A significant portion of our visitors are from New Zealand, however we currently do not have any practitioners from there. If you are interested in being on our list, simply send us your contact information (i.e. office address, phone number, email, website) and complete the survey response form at http://www.tmswiki.org/ppd/Draft_Survey_Response:_Jonathan_Kuttner. To complete the survey, just click and type. It saves automatically. Once you finish it, send me a quick email to let me know. By completing the survey our users will be able to understand your specific approach and therapeutic background, which encourages them in seeking out your services. The practitioner referral page is located at http://www.tmswiki.org/page/Find+a+TMS+Doctor+or+Therapist .

As I reviewed your website I was pleased to see that you understood the connections between the mind and body in developing chronic pain symptoms. I am very interested in learning more about your approach and seeing what comparisons there are to ours. If you have any questions at all feel free to ask.

Best,

Your Name
