For four decades, Dr. Les Fehmi has been training people to regulate their own brainwave patterns to improve their mental, emotional, and physical health. His new book focuses on the treatment of pain, and it is based on the premise that although pain is perceived to exist in a particular part of the body, pain actually arises in the brain. Drawing on existing scientific research and on decades of clinical experience, he offers brain-training exercises that quiet the pain signal in the brain. The exercises involve altering the way we pay attention to pain, cultivating what Fehmi calls Open-Focus Attention: a relaxed form of awareness that changes the neural blood flow and increases alpha brainwave activity (associated with reduced stress and beneficial hormonal changes). These exercises are effective in the treatment of many forms of pain including back, shoulder, neck, and joint pain; headaches; muscle pain and tension; and pain from traumatic injury. Included with the book is a 60-minute program that guides listeners through the Open-Focus exercises to help them to become pain free.
