Pain Reprocessing Therapy

Suffering from Mind Body Disorder means that your physical symptoms aren’t caused by structural problems in your body. They are the result of tangled and confused wiring between your body and your brain. It’s a software problem rather than a hardware issue. 

We’re not completely sure why some people develop these symptoms, but we know they are real, make life difficult and need safe, effective treatments. 

Pain Reprocessing Therapy is a simple, straightforward, clinically proven method of rewiring your system. By looking at you as an individual (your personality, the way you think, feel and behave, your friends, family, work, social life and activities) there’s an excellent chance of reducing, or even eradicating, your symptoms so you can get your life back.
