Today's Featured Success Story
Overcame back pain using the TMS approach
My first bout of debilitating back pain occurred when I was about 13. The back pain intensified throughout college, and by the time I was in grad school I stood in the back of all my classes, because sitting for any length of time was too painful.

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.
