TMS: Momentum is the key to healing

Nothing makes the healing process easier than having momentum. And nothing makes it harder than attempting to heal for years but never establishing any momentum (or improvement).

So, what is healing momentum? Here’s a working definition:

Momentum is the force that propels your healing journey forward and is greater than the sum of your information, your strategy, and your effort combined. Momentum can actually make the process fun.

Healing momentum (which is identified by rapid symptom improvement) is categorized by 4 factors that will drive you forward. If these 4 factors are present, you’re as good as healed.

Creating momentum takes a considerable amount of effort. It’s like getting a rocket off the ground at Cape Canaveral. It takes a lot of energy and effort to escape the earth’s gravitational pull. However, once in space, it takes very little effort to keep moving forward.

There are four factors that fuel momentum:

1. Momentum is...

Bob's Success Story

Bob proudly wearing his Sarno Medal of Freedom!


In 2018, I married the woman of my dreams. We both enjoyed our growing relationships with our combined family, and I thought nothing could be better.  But six months into our marriage while running on an elliptical machine, I felt a “snap” in my back followed by excruciating pain with electricity up and down my back and right leg. I fell from the elliptical, rolled up in a ball, and was able stand painfully with the aid of nearby steps. 

The next five years I lived the standard medical “chronic pain” regime related by Dr. Sarno and the Pain Cure Clinic. According to the docs, it was surgery or a lifetime of pain. This pain was unlike any I had experienced; the excruciating pain and duration of debilitation was overwhelming. I was brought to tears and bitterness more than once, tempted by the promises of surgeons with great reputations –among their peers. Friends who had the surgery...

Landmark Trial Shows Opioids for Back Pain No Better Than Placebo


Opioids do not relieve acute low back pain in the short run and lead to worse outcomes when the back pain becomes chronic. This is the result of the first randomized controlled study of safety and efficacy of the use of opioids for lower back pain. 

 After 6 weeks, there was no significant difference in pain scores of patients who took opioids compared to those who took the placebo. And amazingly, after one year, the placebo patients had lower pain scores than those taking the real thing. 

This study* was conducted by Christine Lin PhD. in Australia with 347 adults who had been experiencing low back pain for at least 12 weeks. 

Doctor Lin comments about the study: 
"We need to reassure doctors and patients that most people with lower back pain will recover with time if they manage the process properly by - staying active, avoiding bed rest, and if necessary, using a heat pack for short term relief.” 

 *Study conducted by the National...

Jeff Overcame Years of Pain



“About halfway through the second go around of the (Master Class) videos, all the pain went away.”

Jeff from Pennsylvania had a variety of chronic pain symptoms for most of his life. In other words, Jeff was a typical TMS sufferer. He started out with plantar fasciitis (foot pain) which lasted for 20 years.

Jeff had custom orthotics made and then needles put into his feet. Then they tried paddling his feet and more orthotics and more needles. This sounds like more fun than a barrel of monkeys.

Then Jeff had hip pain supposedly from skydiving in the past. He tried physical therapy, heat treatments and a tens unit which is similar to shock therapy. Nothing of course helped at all.

Next came back pain which was the worst pain of all. More suffering.

Jeff eventually found Dr. Sarno, and then the Pain Cure Clinic and finally after a lifetime of pain symptoms, Jeff was cured - pain level zero.

t’s a great story of Jeff’s...

The Fear and the Pain


I haven’t had any psychosomatic pain symptoms in quite a long time. However, that winning streak ended a couple weeks ago when my right foot became painful. Or was it real structural pain? That’s always the question we all struggle with. 


I was in training to run the Saguaro Desert Half-Marathon in Tucson, AZ: 13.1 miles through the desert with lots of rocks and giant saguaro cacti. Running longer races is hard but there’s a real feeling of accomplishment and you get a medal for finishing. 


In fact, race medals were the inspiration for the Sarno Medal of Freedom that has become so popular with our students. 


However, the week before the race, my foot started to become more and more painful. Was this a real medical problem? I theorized that it might be from running on the treadmill (that I don’t normally use) vs. outside because of the extreme cold winter weather. The treadmill is not my natural gait....

Christine: Sarno Medal of Freedom Winner!

My name is Christine and I am very happy to accept the Sarno Medal of Freedom. I live in Australia. I am 72 years old. I have had many TMS symptoms over my life. Migraines, anxiety, burning eyes, vertigo, panic attacks, severe digestive disorders and more recently tinnitus. I had read a couple of John Sarno’s books over the years and accepted my issues were probably TMS but had never really devoted the time or resources to doing the work during a 40-year career as a teacher. 


Being a perfectionist and very stoic I managed this career with the minimum of sick leave and an attitude to just keep going and it was rewarding despite the health issues. On retirement in 2016 my migraines vanished - there’s a signal! A couple of years into retirement a series of life stresses saw me spiral into fight or flight in a big way. I became super alert - very sensitive to sound and very anxious about my health. I was prescribed antidepressants and beta-blockers as...

Rusty: Sarno Medal of Freedom Winner!

Rusty from Arizona wins the Sarno Medal of Freedom Award – well done!

Our client, Rusty, had a rough time of it. He suffered from constant back pain for over 15 years. He tried everything including: 

Physical Therapy
Physio Tape
Epidural Shots
Disc Ablation Surgery

And nothing on this list did anything.

As amazing as it sounds, Rusty found Dr. Sarno - read Healing Back Pain and purchased the Sarno 3.0 Master Class and….in just 2 days, his pain was gone!

It’s hard to believe, none of his friends believe it (not unusual) but he’s playing golf 3 days per week, working out 3 days per week, stretching walking, doing yard work, doing anything he wants to do physically.

There’s nothing stopping him now.

Rusty says, without a doubt, he’s going to be pain free for the rest of his life. If Rusty can do it, YOU can too.

Way to go Rusty! Dr. Sarno would be proud that you've received this award...

Amisha: Sarno Medal of Freedom


My name is Amisha and I live in Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia. I have suffered from many pain symptoms for much of my life. Most recently, I have had much hip pain and also very bad ringing in my ears. The ringing was driving me crazy! I was able to find John and Laura’s videos and then I knew my problems were from being very stressful in life.

The courses and video classes taught me not to worry about individual problems like my hips or ears. The course says that we must calm the whole nervous system and then the pain will go. So that’s what I did.

I did journaling about my life. I did positive affirmations that there was “nothing wrong with me”. And I did meditation every morning for 20 minutes. (The Meditation Course is great too!).

Now I have no ringing in my ears and no other pain for almost 2 months now. I am very happy to accept the Medal of Freedom. Thank you so much Laura and John for your courses and encouragement. It has meant so much to...
