    Hi! I am looking for a therapist who can impart what Dr Sarno mentions in his books. For me it was enough to read the book to cure my constant headaches but someone I know has had back pain for many months now and the book helped him but not enough, he has a herniated discbut still he is still in a lot of pain and I remember reading that there were people who lived with herniated discs and never suffered pain so the discs should not take all the blame, instead we should focus on what is wrong with our emotions to cause us that pain. I also remember that somewhere in the book or in this forum some of Dr Sarno's followers were mentioned who have taught his technique since he died and I would like to contact one of them to see if they can help my friend. I see that there are already several therapists in this forum but I am especially looking for those who have taken the place of Dr Sarno since he passed away, as I remember several of them lived in NY. I hope you can help me, thank you very much! By the way, the book that my friend and I read was Healing Back Pain. Thanks again :)

    Hi -- there is a whole directory on the PPDA website. Be sure to also read The Divided Mind.

    The website for the PPD association is www.ppdassociation.org

    You might also check out the work of David Hanscom MD. He has a book, blog, podcast, and a paid program, and his website is www.BackInControl.com with a ton of articles and links to podcast episodes. Dr. Hanscom was a spinal surgeon in Seattle who developed his Back In Control program for his pre-surgery patients after he recovered from his own back pain thanks to Dr Sarno. He abandoned his surgical career a few years ago when his surgery cancelation rate was high enough that he decided to devote himself to mindbody healing instead of back surgery.
