Clinical psychologist and neuroscientist researching chronic pain, brain, emotion and placebo. Post-doc at Weill Cornell
In this Wellness Plus Talks, Dr. Jess has the pleasure of interviewing the co-author of a study design that eliminated pain with mind-body techniques and published in JAMA Psychiatry, Yoni Ashar. Yoni works closely with his mentor. Alan Gordon, who has discovered a way to get rid of pain altogether, rather than treat it symptomatically. In the study, Yoni and Alan were successful at eliminating 66% of people’s pain, compared to around 20% in the placebo group. Dr. Jess was pleased to hear how getting into parasympathetic mode and treating mental PTSD is a big part of the work!
In this talk, you will learn:
- How the brain tricks itself into feeling very real pain
- What the study has taught us
- How to learn how to reverse pain for yourself
- who the book is for
