Someone (BruceMC?) on the Saturday referred to Monte Hueftle’s Master Practice program so I checked it out at runningpain.com where I found this on the home page: Do you understand that TMS is not a "deeply repressed emotions" syndrome? Over the past 10 years I have consulted with 1,000's of Sarno, Schubiner & Schechter patients who are still struggling to reverse TMS pain symptoms from their life. They accept and believe in the TMS diagnosis but they are still stuck in the pain strategy. Why? They are searching for deeply repressed emotions, believing this is the key to ending their pain. TMS is not a deeply repressed emotions syndrome! TMS is a chronic pain syndrome caused by our day-to-day generation of inner tension and our day-to-day repression of emotional energy. I would really appreciate some comments on this. Hueftle says "TMS is not a deeply repressed emotions syndrome!" but is caused by "repression of emotional energy" This doesn't quite make sense to me. Is he is saying that lightly repressing emotions causes tms while deeply repressing them doesn't? Probably not. But what IS he saying? Perhaps he is just reminding us that it isn't necessary to have deeply repressed emotions to have tms. Anyway, I'd appreciate some input especially from those who have used his program. For myself, I think that some of my emotions are deeply repressed and that, until dealt with, tms and its equivalents may continue to periodically reassert themselves. Or perhaps this is just a matter of defining "deeply" and "day-to-day".
