"Making Pain-Free Possible!"

OldPain2Go® Answers Why Your Pain Has Persisted & How It Can Go!

OldPain2Go® is an effective methodology to help people free themselves of long term pain issues. It works by integrating elements of logic and neuroscience to help reset the body's protective alarm system and immediately return it to its natural state.

Is this your story?

The Challenge

Living with pain is incredibly tough. You may have to pretend everything is okay even when it’s not. Physical limitations creep into your life, preventing you from doing things you once loved, affecting you and the whole family, and the worst part? No one else truly can understand your pain, it’s a personal and isolating experience.

Pain Takes Centre Stage

Pain becomes the focal point of your life, affecting everything. Social activities are often out of the question. Clear thinking is difficult due to the overwhelming concern about pain. Pain is a survival system intended to annoy you into taking defensive action, and unfortunately, neither you nor medical professionals can pinpoint the cause of the problem or the best action to take.

The Frustration

You’ve most likely tried countless therapies, seeking relief. Some provide temporary relief, but the pain always returns. Alleviating symptoms is a short-term fix, whilst the underlying reason remains elusive.

Seeking Solutions

You want practical measures to make the pain go away—not just temporary management. We’ve helped many people just like you facing similar challenges and want to help you understand the possibilities.

This is Andy's Story

In 2019 Andy was a volunteer for a training demonstration, his ankle had shattered and deformed at age 16 in a motorbike crash, and he had been in a lot of pain every day since. He left totally pain free, to the obvious delight of him and his family!

"Doctors give you pills to mask the pain, this is a different approach. I didn't believe it possible."   Andy File     

Update 2024: Still free from that old pain!

Andy arrived in pain at 10:20 and left without it at 10:55

Session length can vary but typically less than an hour and a half

Andy's Videos show that whilst pain is an invisible sensation, we can certainly see the affects of it Going.....”      Steven Blake

So Many Success Stories

Emma Armes

"I was a Paramedic for 17 years before I injured my back and had to take medical retirement. After trying so many things It was OldPain2Go® that finally got rid of my pain and I was so impressed that all my work helping others is now based on its principles."  

Dr. Mark Chambers F.R.C.G.P.

"The methodology underpinning OldPain2Go provides simplicity, effectiveness, speed of results and lasting effects. It is an invaluable part of my professional and personal tool kit and I have no hesitation to recommending it to Health Care Practitioners and patients." 

Dr. Chambers trained in OldPain2Go® in 2017


Aged 82, she went from doubled up in agony, to pain free and dancing from just one session. Each year that she can attend that same event, she comes to say thank you, and for a hug.  Still free of that old pain and still smiling. "I'm ready for a jive now!" Hazel 2019

What is a typical OldPain2Go® Session Like?

Pre-Session - Initial Contact (free): Call for a prompt assessment of its suitability for you and the advised session duration. Minimal detail is needed on this call, as it is best heard fresh during the session to reset the pain. 

The Session

1, We explain pain and why it can go.

2, We listen to your pain journey, and how it has affected you. We will guide you to the most relevant aspects we need to know.

3, We will discuss with you what we feel is the pattern or program behind the pain sticking and the logic behind it.

4, We will help you recognise the choices you have to satisfy the brain that you are going to be safer without the pain.

5, We will get your agreement that you want the old pain 2 go and then check out the Body and Brain are agreed that that a pain reset is the best and safest thing. 

6, We take you through a relaxed process and guide the body to remove all unwanted old pain, tension and inflammation and check we have achieved to best outcome possible.

7, We advise what to do to ensure you stay pain-free.

Whilst we cannot guarantee what the outcome will be - We can assure you we will work together to get the best outcome possible.

The 6 Top Frequently ASKED Questions  (faq)

Q. Is it Safe?

Answer. Yes totally. It works by the same internal processing by your unconscious that keeps you alive, runs your heart, your lungs and every other cell in your body. Together we just make it aware of that the pain is more of a problem,  than of help to you. Your body then makes the best choice for you. You can totally trust it because it has kept you alive all these years.

Q. Is this a Pain Management technique?

Answer. No. Pain management is about ongoing effort and rarely leaves you free of pain for more than a short duration.

Q. How often do I need treatment?

Answer. Typically, this is a once only session for that old pain. It works by you asking for the old pain messages to be stopped, therefore, it should not return, just as a deleted answer phone message cannot be played again and the tape is cleared to accept new messages. A second session would usually only be wanted if the first session didn't produce a result you are satisfied with, or the Practitioner feels there may be further opportunities for improvement in lowering pain levels.

Q. I have a deteriorating condition, how will it work on that?

Answer. In cases of deteriorating conditions, your medical practitioner most likely conducts regular assessments of the affected area. Think of OldPain2Go® as pressing the reset button on a fire alarm. Your body recognizes the past damage from the old incident and can reset the alarm, silencing it against reacting to an old problem. It will automatically sound again if there's deterioration or any new danger.

Q. Why haven't I heard of it until now?

Answer. As advances in science become more main stream you may have heard that Pain is part of our survival system and that the brain determines the level of the pain. You may also have heard of the biopsychosocial model of pain that OldPain2Go® is an excellent example of. While OldPain2Go® may not be widely mainstream yet, its simplicity, effectiveness, and focus on empowering individuals make it a promising avenue for chronic pain management. As awareness grows, more people will benefit from this innovative service. 

Q. How does it work on different age groups?

Answer. Any age providing they are old enough to understand logic. Even though people tend to have more aches and pains as they get older, these tend to be more related to moving less often and in a more limited way. That is not a barrier to pain going away which will help moving better and more often. End of life care (Palliative) is often painful as organs start to shut down, and with OldPain2Go® we see this as pain that serves no purpose and have experience of helping people have the last part of their life free of pain.

Pain has Purpose, so why is some Pain Persistent?

Understanding Pain - The 2 Categories

Acute (New) Pain, & Chronic, Persistent (Old) Pain

Usually Pain Comes and Pain Goes, that is the natural sequence of completion you have experienced so many times before! So why not this time?

Acute (New) Pain

Understanding Acute Pain: A Four-Stage Process

Stage 1, Harm: Injury occurs, and your body's harm receptors alert the brain to assess the damage.

Stage 2, Alarm: Pain serves as an alarm, a loud signal to highlight an issue and prompt action to prevent further harm. The Brain assesses all aspects of the danger it perceives and decides what level of alert is needed for you to take action, it is designed specifically for you and your circumstances to get the safest outcome. Your perception of pain is individual based on much more than physical damage and cannot be compared with anyone else's. 

Stage 3, Action: The necessary steps become clear to lessen or avoid damage and this action taken which leads to full healing. This occurs within 12 weeks for most body parts.

Stage 4, Reset: As healing progresses, the alarm’s intensity diminishes, eventually the pain goes as safety is restored, even before healing is complete. This reset allows the brain to silence outdated pain signals.

Chronic (Old) Pain

Chronic Pain: is Pain Stuck in the Alarm Phase (Stage 2)

Chronic pain is essentially acute pain that has continued after 12 weeks, and is stuck at the second stage (so is now called chronic, meaning long lasting). It puzzles medical experts and even pain researchers who tend to search for complex explanations, that rarely include trying to find out why the Brain has continued an alarm message beyond its apparent usefulness. Therefore the origin of chronic pain remains difficult to find and patients typically encounter one of two scenarios:

Acceptance: They are informed that the pain is permanent and pain management is the only option.

Endless Search: Continuous testing and procedures lead to diminishing hope and growing anxiety as no solution is found, hope is lost and sense of danger increases.

Ultimately, without appropriate actions leading to safety, the brain never perceives an environment secure enough to trigger the reset phase, leaving the individual's brain trapped in a perpetual state of alert, and that does more harm than good.

Summary:  Pain ONLY subsides after taking appropriate ACTION, and with CHRONIC (Old) Pain, an appropriate ACTION still needs to be taken.

OldPain2Go® Has a Solution

We understand that chronic pain is the brain’s way of protecting you. Staying in pain can make it difficult to detect new threats that might otherwise go unnoticed, so keeping the pain really isn't a good protective system. Our role is to recognize outdated pain patterns and programs your brain is running automatically, helping you become aware of them. Once you are aware of the true intent behind the pain alarm message you can then make choices of action that can satisfy the brain of the the current level of safety and that the danger alert is no longer needed.

When we discuss your pain with you, we are not only finding out why the pain is stuck, we are having the brain reconsider the usefulness of the pain message. The brain's perception of the overall need for pain is the key to pain removal and if we together provide enough persuasion that it is doing more harm than good, then it has to chose the new safest option, instead of sticking with a plan that was not working. When we achieve that outcome what follows is the natural way of pain ending: Action followed by Reset = Pain Goes.

The Brains perception of pain holds the key to unlock the solution.

The Science, Logic and Results Behind OldPain2Go®

 An Independent Feasibility Study 

by Teesside University, Newcastle University, & Norton Physiotherapy Centre

Drew Coverdale 

Chartered Physiotherapist


Quoted from the study:

"It is particularly promising to see these improvements occur within a relatively brief period of time and relatively short duration patient contact time of one hour per treatment session. This has potential implications for service provision where resources are continually over stretched and provides justification for further exploration of this novel intervention. These results demonstrate the feasibility and safety of recruiting to and delivering OldPain2Go®, for the treatment of pain and function, in people with CLBP [Chronic Lower Back Pain] within a research setting."

OldPain2Go® In-House Study:

A large study of Data from Client Feedback

Quoted from the study:

Our study analyses feedback from 216 individuals who engaged in our training and demonstrations from November 2016 to March 2019. Using the Subjective Units of Distress Scale (SUDs), participants reported their personal perception of pain levels before and after a single OldPain2Go® session. With an average chronic pain duration of over 10 years, the findings reveal that most participants either eliminated or significantly reduced their pain in this one session. This underscores OldPain2Go®’s potential as a viable alternative to traditional repetitive pain management strategies.

The Incredible Story of a Revolution

in how OLD PAIN can be made 2 GO

I'm Steven Blake, the Creator of OldPain2Go®

The Mission: Liberation from Chronic Pain

My mission with OldPain2Go® is straightforward: “To liberate as many people as possible from the grip of chronic pain.” I speak from personal experience, having dealt with back problems since childhood. Diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis and spinal arthritis at 38, I faced daily, severe pain and nerve discomfort. Having lived with pain for 50 years, I empathize with its impact and cannot bear to see others suffer needlessly.

Adapting and Refining the Technique

In 2011, at age 58, I was retraining to become a therapist. During this process, I encountered a technique that had potential but also significant flaws. I adapted it for my own use, and remarkably, I have been free of Chronic Pain since that day. Over time, I refined the methodology, creating a process far removed from the original.

Thinking Differently, Daring to Challenge Conventional Unsuccessful Approaches 

I have always liked to understand things well so that I can explain them simply, and have never been satisfied with "Nothing can be done," or "That's impossible."  As I could do something this dramatic for myself, all I had to do was work out WHY it worked, right back to basic principles. Initially my work was based on practice, logic and observation, only more recently did I find the science is now clearly stating what I had already deduced and put to practical use since 2011.

Promoting Transformation Despite Challenges

Promoting my work posed challenges. Those  I helped find relief couldn’t always convince others of its power. Yet, driven by the impact it could have, I persisted, and in 2016, I began running free pain clinics to hone my skills and explore my evolving theories. My goal was to fully understand pain at a practical level, how to make it go away rather than merely manage it. I believed that if the brain recognised persistent pain as doing more harm than good, it could instantly stop sending pain signals. This theory proved repeatable and predictable in just one session.

Teaching OldPain2Go®: Empowering Others

Since November 2016, I’ve been teaching OldPain2Go®, sharing my skills and knowledge, empowering even more people to break free from pain. To date, 1,748 individuals have trained to help many people just like you, using this transformative approach.

"I lived with persistent pain for 50 years, have been free of it since 2011 and been studying and developing pain removal for others ever since".  Steven Blake
