Here’s what we’re all about…  

Hello friend and thanks for stopping by. We are Laura Thornton and John Thornton, chronic pain sufferers for many years who cured themselves forever and then started - The Pain Cure Clinic in Boulder Colorado.  

We’re now totally dedicated to helping others cure themselves of Tension Myositis Syndrome. Maybe you’re one of them.  

Most of our clients have spent years in the medical system without success and then found Dr. Sarno and it all sounds very promising. It is.  

However, Dr. Sarno’s books alone are not nearly enough. If you haven’t cured yourself yet, don’t feel bad. It’s not your fault.  

Dr. Sarno’s books were intended to prove that tension causes chronic illness. And they do that very well. But they do not explain how to actually cure it.  

Laura and John have researched TMS for the better part of a decade, coached hundreds of clients, and learned directly from 3 doctors who had worked directly with Dr. Sarno.   

The Sarno 3.0 MasterClass is the culmination of the better part of a decade work.

About the Instructors


Laura is originally from Orlando Florida where she started suffering from chronic pain at the very early age of just 15 years old. She had pain throughout her body especially (but not limited to) her joints. By a process of elimination only, her doctors labeled her condition - Rheumatoid Arthritis.

Laura’s doctors told her that she could never be cured of RA, but with proper medication, she could live a fairly normal life and her disease might even go into remission at some point. She embraced the idea of remission and fought the supposed disease for decades. And Laura was able to live without pain for significant portions of time. But it always came back during stressful times. It was always there.

And then, through John Thornton, she was introduced to the work of Dr. John Sarno MD. Laura had always thought that, despite her medical diagnosis, the pain seemed to be highly correlated with her stress level. But in 30 years, her doctors had never offered stress as a possible cause of pain. By reading Dr. Sarno’s book, The Mind Body Prescription, she discovered that chronic pain is primarily caused by emotional stress. This was a real breakthrough for Laura.

Laura studied the mind-body connection extensively and got coaching help to permanently extinguish her “Rheumatoid Arthritis”. It worked. All her symptoms stopped completely in 2015 and she does not even use her old medical diagnosis to describe her past pain. As she says: it was all just TMS.

Laura has gone on to help hundreds of other chronic pain sufferers all over the world rid themselves of both their medical diagnoses and their pain. She is the co-founder of the Pain Cure Clinic in Boulder, Colorado.


John is originally from New York but has lived in Georgia, Alabama, California, and Colorado. John lived a mostly healthy life until about the age of 40 years old. He was in excellent health. But around the age of 40, John started suffering from a variety of chronic symptoms including headaches, rashes, chronic fatigue, and allergies. The symptoms started slowly and then picked up speed. John tried managing the symptoms and went on with his life the best he could.

And then came the back pain. That was the one that really got to him. The pain level was very high and constant. John couldn’t work and he spent most days just trying to get comfortable. He tried most all medical treatments without success.

Luckily for John, he had a friend who was a doctor and had worked with Dr. Sarno. That friend gave John The Mind Body Prescription. John started reading and immediately everything finally made sense. John realized that all of his chronic conditions were the result of just one thing - stress. He got coaching and started exercising again. At this point, everything headed in the right direction. Within 4 months, all chronic symptoms that John had suffered with for so many years, were gone. It had all been just TMS.

 John has now worked with, and learned from, 3 medical doctors who worked directly with Dr. Sarno. He got the inside scoop. He co-produced the Sarno Master Class with Laura and he’s personally coached hundreds of clients all over the world how to become pain free. He is the co-founder of the Pain Cure Clinic and he now lives in Boulder, Colorado.
