In treating chronic pain Perry says, “In individual therapy we explore the direct link of the mind and emotions to the manifestation of pain in the body. Traditional forms of pain treatment such as physical therapy, pain medications, anti-inflammatory medications and injections, surgery, acupuncture, chiropractic care, or massage, do not address the underlying emotional issues that are causing the pain in the first place. All that these other forms of pain management can give you are temporary relief...The most immediate relief for clients upon receiving the TMS diagnosis is that there is nothing structurally wrong with their body and are therefore encouraged to go about their daily activities of life without giving into the pain.” (Source) She also organizes a TMS/PPD therapists supervision group in the Los Angeles area.
Along with her practice, Colleen Perry has given several presentations and routinely contributes to The Huffington Post. In August of 2009 Perry wrote an article for the post on chronic pain and TMS entitled "Treating Chronic Pain - There is a Better Way!," which examines the connection between chronic pain and the U.S. health care system. Perry has given presentations to a variety of medical and mental health professionals that include the use of neurofeedback as an adjunct to therapy, the dangers involved with dieting, the signs of an eating disorder, and the media's influence on body image.
