Pathways to Pain Relief: Now available in paperback!

Originally published as an e-book in January 2013, the TMS book Pathways to Pain Relief, written by Dr. Frances Sommer Anderson and Dr. Eric Sherman is now available for purchase in paperback format at The book describes both psychologists' experiences treating patients with TMS, and incorporates case histories which illustrate how chronic pain and other medically unexplained symptoms originate as a means to protect an individual from unbearable emotional distress. Pathways also includes a foreword by Dr. John Sarno.
