John E
Sarno MD

– Professor of Rehabilitation Medicine

Thank you for visiting my site. My aim is to help people who suffer from persistent pain and for whom conventional medicine has failed to find an answer.

“Many people, especially ignorant people, want to punish you for speaking the truth, for being correct, for being you. Never apologise for being correct, or for being years ahead of your time.  If you are right and you know it, speak your mind. Even if you are a minority of one, speak the truth.” Ghandi

The TMS (Tension Myoneural Syndrome) concept was developed from the early 1970’s by John E Sarno MD, who was a Professor of Rehabilitation Medicine at the New York University School of Medicine. Unfortunately due to existing medical beliefs, despite continually demonstrating the highly successful outcomes of his patients, he has faced great resistance.

Changing widely accepted beliefs is always going to be challenging though. e.g. something that faced great resistance even after the evidence was found was the fact that washing hands could dramatically reduce mortality rates of new Mothers after delivery and of soldiers with wounds that needed dressing.
