    How does one go about finding a TMS therapist in their area? I live close to the Illinois/WI border. Thank you.

    Dr. Stracks believes that the mind and body are intimately connected and that almost all disease processes involve an interplay between the two. His training in integrative medicine has taught him that all treatment plans must include not only a mind and body component but a social and spiritual component as well. In addition, Dr. Stracks believes that the most powerful interventions involve changes in nutrition, activity level, and other lifestyle areas, and he works to partner with patients to effect these changes. Dr. Stracks believes that many conditions can be controlled or even reversed with mind-body techniques, lifestyle changes, and other integrative therapies, and he likes working with patients and their primary physicians to safely reduce medication use whenever possible.

    Thank you. Yes, I saw Dr. Stracks and he believes that I do have TMS. I'm looking for someone that can help me figure out why I have TMS and what's causing it. Apparently I must have some deeply suppressed issues and need help figuring out what those are.

    It sounds like Dr. Stracks is your man, why not work with him until TMS clicks for you? His bio states he does more then just dx TMS, he also works with PP's, or perhaps he can he make a referral to someone in his integrative group to do mindtherapy with? Don Dubin, a noted and well loved TMS therapist told me he never had to do more then a dozen sessions to get the TMS theory embedded in the psyches of his patients.

    BTW, Dr. Sarno said that you did NOT have to find the black bullet traumatic incident in your past that "caused" your TMS, you only had to accept his TMS theory, letting it be absorbed by your self-conscious, and start doing what ever makes you feel good--Just Do It!
