If you are suffering chronic pain-even after years of surgery, rehabilitation, and medication-only one question matters: How do I find lasting relief? With Freedom from Pain, two pioneers in the field of pain and trauma recovery address a crucial missing factor essential to long-term healing: addressing the unresolved emotional trauma held within the body.

Informed by their founding work in the Somatic Experiencing® process and unique insights gleaned from decades of clinical success, Drs. Levine and Phillips will show you how to:

  • Calm the body's overreactive "fight" response to pain
  • Release the fear, frustration, and depression intensified by prior traumas, and build inner resilience and self-regulation
  • Relieve pain caused by the aftermath of injuries, surgical procedures, joint and muscle conditions, migraines, and other challenges

Whether you're seeking to begin a self-care strategy or amplify your current treatment program, Freedom from Pain will provide you with proven tools to help you experience long-term relief.

"Brilliant, practical, and wise, this is an enormously helpful book. I cannot recommend this work highly enough."
-Jack Kornfield, author of A Path with Heart

"This book is for everyone who wants freedom from pain. I have read dozens of books on pain relief and the power of the mind for healing, and this is clearly the best to date."
-Steven Gurgevich, PHD, assistant clinical professor of medicine, Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine
