Links and Resources


Most of the information from this site has come from a couple of websites, which should be the first port of call for anyone researching TMS.

The first is the TMS Wiki. It is run by former TMS sufferers and contains an absolute wealth of information about the condition. There are over 600 separate pages, as well a discussion forum where you can have your questions answered.

Further Reading:

For books, you should first read Dr. Sarno’s The Mindbody Prescription. It’s only a small book, and easy reading. If you’re unsure, have a look at the reviews on Amazon – over 150 reviews and nearly a 5/5 star rating.

A more in-depth look at the condition is provided by Dr. Sarno’s The Divided Mind. It is a collective work with chapters written by rheumatologists, neurologists, and psychologists as well as by Dr. Sarno.

I also found David Schechter’s Mindbody Workbook useful. This is not so much a book as a resource to help with your journaling.

This is a 5000 word article on Dr. Sarno and TMS written by Jonah Lehrer. It goes into great detail on the medical evidence and includes an interview with Dr. Sopher, an adherent of Dr. Sarno’s methods.

The TMS Wiki also has a much more comprehensive list of books and other resources.

TMS Treatment:

Georgie Oldfield is a physiotherapist from Huddersfield who runs both a distance and face to face TMS program. The course lasts for 6 weeks and includes DVDs and workbooks. This is the course that I went on, and I can definitely recommend it. Georgie also runs a monthly support group on the last Wednesday of every month. This is free to join and is an excellent opportunity to meet former and current TMS sufferers and discuss strategies for overcoming chronic pain.

Dr. Howard Schubiner is a Michigan doctor who runs an online TMS course. He also provides on-site classes. His website is excellent, with a huge amount of information about TMS.

There are numerous other doctors who are amenable to the concept of TMS. The TMS Wiki has compiled a list here.

  1. I want to get this book for my mum in Chinese. I have healed my back pain from reading Dr Sarnos healing back pain book. My mum has it as well and wonder if there is a Chinese Version of this book.

    Thank you.
