From the publisher. Taking the reader into several diagnostic sessions to illustrate what he sees as a “detective” process to find the source of pain, Finestone explains how psychological and social issues can influence health and healing, for better or worse. Lower back and neck pain, fibromyalgia, and even work-related pains are delved into. In addition to providing vignettes that illustrate the ideas discussed and show dramatic instances of how healing the mind can also heal the body, Finestone uses unique and useful diagrams that explain how the mind and body are physiologically connected and reactive to each other.
