Survey Response: Monte Hueftle
This survey was last updated in January 2009.
Introduction: Hello, my name is Monte Hueftle. I suffered with TMS for more than 20 years and have now been painfree for the past 8 years. My TMS consultation practice focuses on helping people reverse this pain disorder by learning their unique behaviors and thoughts and the way that they generated inner tension and repress their emotions. Many of Dr. Sarno's patients state that my information is the "missing link" that has helped them understand the psychological strategy of TMS.
Number of years in practice: 6 years as a TMS consultant. I became a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist in 1994, however I currently do not hold a license.
Number of years in practice with patients who have TMS: 6 years
Number of patients you have seen who have had TMS: I have personally consulted with over 250 patients who have been diagnosed with TMS.
What is your association to the TMS community? I have written 3 books and recorded 3 audio programs on how to heal from TMS. I have my website that educates the TMS community on how to heal from these pain disorders. http://www.runningpain.com
Have you ever suffered from TMS? Yes, I experienced back pain, piriformis, sciatica, and chronic stiffness/soreness for more than 20 years. I have been painfree from TMS since 2003.
Are you able to conduct therapy sessions over the phone? Yes this is my primary method for consultations.
What insurance plans do you currently accept? N/A
Do you have a sliding scale of payment for people who are not covered by insurance? N/A
What have you done to educate yourself about TMS, and what plans do you have for further education about TMS?
After learning about TMS from Dr. Sarno I met with Dr. Schechter for a consultation. My research has included work from Caroline Myss, Belleruth Naparstek, Dr. Andrew Weil, Gary Zukov and Deepak Chopra. The primary emphasis of my education and training has been at the Mental/Emotional aspect of reversing TMS. I choose to have my clients focus on how they are generating inner stress/tension/anxiety with their unique behaviors, thoughts and emotions. I also educate my clients on how to "Think Psychologically" so that they do not continue to "feed" this pain disorder and remain stuck in the pain strategy. Since this is a disorder caused by psychological dynamics my future research and training will continue to be focused on learning more about the mindbody connection.
