Title: The Pain Relief Secret
Author: Sarah Warren
You Can Heal from Chronic Pain
We’ve been sold a lie: The world tells us that pain is inevitable, that our bodies must break down as we age, and that there’s nothing we can do about it. Researchers develop new drugs to manage our pain; surgeons dream up new techniques to repair worn-out joints. But we never truly feel better.
Here’s the shocking truth: The vast majority of the pain that plagues our aging bodies is self-inflicted. It’s caused by the way we use our bodies every day—the way we sit, the way we stand, the way we walk and run. But with simple exercises, anybody can learn to heal their chronic musculoskeletal pain, and prevent future pain, injury, and joint problems from developing. The Pain Relief Secret explores the fascinating science of pain, and instructs readers in Clinical Somatics, a method of neuromuscular education that relieves chronic muscle tightness, restores natural posture and movement, and eliminates pain—all without medication or surgery. Students of Clinical Somatics have healed from chronic back pain, joint and nerve pain, scoliosis, and many other common pain conditions—all without medication or surgery.
Best of all, Clinical Somatics puts the power in your hands. You don’t need special training or expensive repeat visits to a physical therapist. Clinical Somatics exercises are practiced on your own and in your very own home. This is The Pain Relief Secret—your key to taking back your body from a lifetime of pain.
This book is great for anyone who has tried chiropractic treatments, naturopathy, yoga, physiotherapy, or massage therapy and still experiences chronic pain.

This is a well written book. It reads like an essay, explaining basic anatomy and physiology of muscles in a way that’s easy to understand. The author also takes some time to explain the history behind somatic therapy and the importance of it when it comes to chronic pain.
There are plenty of ways that a person can attempt to get over their chronic pain, and this book helps to outline a number of them.
There are exercises at the end designed to help. They’re easy to follow. I have a lot of back pain so when I was offered a copy of this book, I leapt at the opportunity. Although I haven’t personally tried any of these exercises yet, I plan to in the future.
This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
