How Carolyn beat RSI

Hi everyone, I've been feeling great for a long time but I told myself that I would wait until Christmas to post (just to make sure it was long lasting relief).

How Sam beat RSI

I originally thought I would wait until my symptoms were completely gone to write about the progress I've made lately, but then thought that's being a little too perfectionist - also I can honestly say I don't fear TMS any more - I'm not concerned that I'm crowing about success now and somehow TMS will rise out of the ashes or anything.

What is TMS (Tension Myositis Syndrome) and how knowing about it helps beat RSI

INFORMATION TO REPRODUCE KINDLY PERMITTED BY  RSI BACKPAIN UK TMS is based on the theory that a whole host of chronic pain conditions can have a mind-body rather than physical root, and that they  need to be understood in terms of the whole mind-body system.  Mind body techniques therefore offer the potential for significant pain reduction and even cure.   Recent research has shown that stress (either consc ...
