If you suffer from chronic pain, look no further. Get Ms. Oldfield's book--and consider yourself very lucky for having found Ms. Oldfield's book, because you are now among the few chronic pain sufferers in the world today who will ever know how to free yourself from pain.

I speak as a medical professional who has spent my entire career searching for answer for chronic pain,only to be disappointed over and over again by professional courses, literature and costly treatment devices, all of which promised Real Answers for chronic pain but in the end provided at best only temporary relief. I've spent $10,000s in my search for answers only to come up almost empty-handed time after time. My shelves are full of scores of books on pain, which are doing nothing but collecting dust.

So imagine my shock when I came across the answer I had spent my career searching for--but not in within mainstream medicine as one would expect, and hope, and assume. Instead I found the answers for chronic pain in a little-known book that I had stumbled upon totally by chance while browsing on It was a book about 'faulty medical advice.' I ALMOST DIDN'T BUY THE BOOK! Thinking back, that frightens me more than anything--that I almost didn't buy the book! Because tucked within its pages, to my astonishment, was The Answer I had spent decades searching for. The answer for chronic pain lies in the pioneering work of Dr. John E. Sarno MD and TMS (Tension Myositis Syndrome). TMS is the actual diagnosis for chronic pain. I was stunned. I am still stunned. Had I not purchased this book, I STILL would not know the answer for chronic pain.

Ms. Oldfield herself is a pioneer. She is a physiotherapist who has taken the work of Dr. John Sarno and pulled it together in a course which she now teaches to other therapists. Dr. Sarno himself has endorsed her work, stating, "It is great to have such a competent and enthusiastic colleague in the UK". Now Ms. Oldfield has provided the world with a well-written, easy-to-understand book which offers the reader the chance to free himself permanently from chronic pain. With chronic pain epidemic in the US, inflicting millions--and with a medical system that shamefully continues to turn a blind eye to its own medical research and to the truth of the effectiveness of TMS treatment, be thankful that Ms. Oldfield has written this book. This book is indeed your Key to Recovery.
