Patient Testimonials:

"Whether you are initially exploring if TMS/Mind-Body is the cause of your symptoms or are in the final stages of recovery, this course is the most comprehensive material I have found! It explores both the medical issues and psychological causes.  Dr. Schechter walks you through the initial diagnosis and explains how to apply the treatment approach.  Dr. Barker explains the typical psychological causes and how to improve in those areas applicable to you.  Both Doctors then answer many questions. 

This program of treatment has been successful for me.  I used to be on high dose opioids and a spinal cord stimulator.  I have tapered off the opioids and the stimulator is turned off.  It works!" 

Jim H., Patient. Southern California  


"The course was fabulous! It is so helpful to have so much information and advice (and current information) in one place, in a format that is easy for even someone in severe pain to access. I have previously found TMS information to be a lot of work to piece together. This course is much needed.
I found the course to be comprehensive and clear. It answered most of the questions that had been lingering ... I particularly appreciated the very comprehensive FAQ sections and the PDF list of question topics, which made it easy to find answers to the most personally relevant questions before listening to the full recording."

Jen. M., Patient Santa Barbara, CA


"Thank you both for your compassionate and comprehensive approach to helping TMS sufferers to become more aware of how the brain and emotions are at play in our physical pain. It’s been 5 years now since my debilitating symptoms began... Your course has added a new dimension in education to the cause of recovery from this syndrome. Much appreciated!"

L. Campbell, Ontario, CAN

"My favorite part was the FAQ.  I feel like it answered many questions that contributed to doubts I had and it would do the same for other patients..."

P.T., Patient, Los Angeles

"Dear Dr. Schechter. I just want to say how much I like listening to Dr. Barker. He gives so much information that I can relate to, at a nice easy pace, and with a very kind demeanor. Your program is awesome. Thank you."

Albert N, Patient, Los Angeles

Professional Testimonials:

"The course did a great job of explaining TMS in a way that is easily understandable and relatable. The MBHJ course truly reflects a well-rounded, patient-centered care approach. It is an affordable investment for those with chronic pain and TMS to learn how to take a more effective and holistic approach to solve their pain problem. By the end of the course, TMS patients can see life in a new light that helps them heal from emotional build-up, interact with themselves more empathetically, set healthy boundaries, and grow as a whole person."

Amari Dior, TMS Pain and Life coach


"This course is comprehensive, profound, and empowering. Dr. Schechter and Dr. Barker have done a wonderful job explaining evidence-based mind-body healing modalities, intricate emotional patterns contributing to pain, and addressing common questions and challenges from their years of experience treating patients with TMS.
