    I seem to have multiple pain locations. Should I be targeting the area in some specific way. Back, feet, stomach etc

    I'm not sure I'm best placed to answer this but I'll give it a go.

    "Think Psychological

    I tell my patients that they must consciously think about repressed rage and the reasons for it whenever they are aware of the pain. This is in contradiction to threatening thoughts and feelings to deny the pain its purposeā€”to divert your attention from those feelings. When the pain is severe, it is difficult to concentrate on feelings, but you must regard the process as a contest in which your conscious will is pitted against the unconscious, automatic reactions of the brain."

    If you only focus on one particular pain site in a particular way, you are only likely to tackle part of the problem.

    JanAtheCPA gave this advice in another thread and it helped me a lot; adopting this view fully was one of the things that lead to a breakthrough for me in my recovery.

    Agree with the posts above. The place to target is your mind, not your body.
