Today's Featured Success Story
Overcame back pain using the TMS approach
Last fall I lifted a case of 36 cans of beer into a shopping cart at the supermarket and felt excruciating pain in my back. I emailed a friend who is a nurse in Hawaii to ask her advice and she said I should read a book, Healing Back Pain, by Dr. John E. Sarno. Sarno’s book helped me to get rid of about 95 percent of my back pain, but I still felt lower back pain. It took me more than six months before I decided Sarno was 100 percent right and the pain went away. Read the full success story
Every Saturday at 3 PM ET, we host an online peer-moderated chatroom where people can discuss TMS topics and provide and receive support from each other. Go to the chatroom
Call-In Discussion Group
Every month on Tuesday evenings we host a call-in discussion group focusing on a section of a TMS book or hosting a TMS author or practitioner. Callers discuss that session's material and other TMS-related issues, deepening their understanding of TMS through conversation with others. Free recordings of past sessions are also available.

Webinars & Special Events
Dr. Sarno hosted lectures for his new clients as a way to help educate them about TMS. With a similar mindset, we host special webinars with TMS practitioners and authors to help people with TMS learn more about the condition and identify the emotional sources behind their symptoms, hear how others successfully overcame their symptoms, and learn skills to help become pain-free.

We’ve been there. We can help.
The PPD/TMS Peer Network (PTPN) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2009. We seek to relieve suffering from Tension Myositis Syndrome (TMS) by raising awareness, providing information based on scientific evidence, facilitating expression of a wide variety of perspectives, and giving individual support to people with TMS. Like many others, we suffered from terrible pain and other symptoms for many years before learning about this approach. All of the members of our organization suffered from TMS at some point in their lives, and the majority of these members consider themselves to have recovered from chronic pain and experience little to no pain.
