Question Since discovering Sarno's work and much of the content on this site, I have made a concerted effort to eliminate any behavior that reinforces the notion of a structural cause for my pain. There are many activities that I used to perform compulsively in an effort to "fix" some imagined structural problem: namely stretching, exercising and consciously attempting to relax certain muscle groups. As long as I approach these activities purely from the standpoint of promoting health or providing symptomatic relief, are they safe to engage in?
