Master Plan for Long-Term Wellness
One in three Americans currently suffer from chronic pain. It can be daunting to find the best way to successfully manage one’s pain.

A chronic pain diagnosis brings shock, bewilderment and grief. The loss of life before the chronic pain isn’t always acknowledged in the medical community. It is tough to come to terms with the loss of function caused by the pain.

Conventional medical practitioners receive specialized training in their areas of expertise. They don’t always know as much about alternative treatments or therapies outside of their fields of expertise.

Guided imagery and hypnosis have proven successful in helping pain management. Lowering stress, reducing the need for pain medication before or after surgery, and reducing chemotherapy-induced nausea are all benefits individuals have experienced from these alternative therapies.

Listen as Dr. Traci Stein joins Dr. Holly Lucille to share alternative therapies for addressing chronic pain.
