Les Fehmi PhD: Dissolving Pain
Dissolving Pain: Simple Brain-Training Exercises for Overcoming Chronic Pain by Dr. Les Fehmi and Jim Robbins
For four decades, Dr. Les Fehmi has been a leader in brainwave biofeedback (also called neurofeedback), training individuals how to balance and regulate their brainwave patterns to improve mental, emotional, and physical health.
Dissolving Pain is based on the premise that although pain is perceived to exist in a particular part of the body, pain in fact resides in the brain. Dr. Fehmi shows us that it is possible to learn to resolve pain at the brain level, using simple attention exercises. Drawing on scientific research, Dr. Fehmi explains how to quiet the pain signal in the brain, empowering readers to free themselves from many forms of pain and discomfort.
Included with the book is a 65-minute audio CD in which Dr. Fehmi guides listeners through the fundamental Dissolving Pain exercises.
