About OldPain2Go® & the current Science of Pain

Sponsored: only by Individual client sessions

"All pain is real and all pain is a calculation in the brain to assess what level of pain is needed to protect you. Pain works by annoying you until you take appropriate action towards safety. When there is no action you can take, then the pain is no longer a message protecting you. To have the brain cease sending out old pain messages it simply requires a new understanding of the current situation and a reassessment of whether continuing that old pain message is helpful or harmful and what level of pain (if any) is best for survival and a good quality of life. There is no need for a long "cure" that will be hard work for the client. A "cure" isn't needed, just a reassessment of safety. Your brain will always do what is best for you based on all it knows, sometimes it just needs convincing that pain isn't the best option."

Frequently, individuals inquire about the scientific basis of my work so please let me explain. Since 2011, I have aided individuals in effectively removing or mitigating pain, as corroborated by their personal evaluation of pain levels prior to and following a Pain Review Session, which usually takes under an hour for physical pain issues. Until 2016, it was challenging for me to ascertain the scientific rationale behind my practical application of my logical deductions. However, at present (2023), there is an abundance of scientific research explaining all aspects of my work. Nonetheless, no cohesive science based strategy has been formulated, and scientists seem no closer to providing a conclusion regarding how to consistently achieve the sort of outcomes that I have repeatedly accomplished the last 12 years, and trained others to do. None of the researchers have yet seemed to recognize that they have already provided answers to all aspects of the solution they seek. If only they were to adopt a fresh perspective and analyse their own work from a position of openness to a new understanding. It is evident from the videos of the leading pain researchers (included below) that they are searching for a long and gradual "cure," which necessitates a significant amount of client education and effort. Generally speaking the preconceptions with which you start will determine where you end up..... Meanwhile, people continue to suffer. 

My methodology chiefly entails educating clients about chronic pain and its true nature: an outdated, overly protective message. The second part, which the researchers seem to overlook, is that instead of merely concealing pain or tricking the brain into lowering the pain message, why not work with the client to assist them in recognizing, both consciously and at the level of the unconscious, that the pain message is unnecessary? It is then, I would suggest from experience, simple to persuade the brain to cease producing that outdated, unnecessary, nagging pain, which can frequently result in an immediate, pain-free outcome.

Chronic pain not only serves no purpose, but may also conceal new, acute, protective pain messages in the same area. Consequently, my conclusion is that old/chronic/nagging pain is not a reasonable protective mechanism; instead, it functions against the survival system by impeding the early recognition of "new", acute pain and the consequent diagnosis. 

It is frustrating for me to witness such a straightforward solution that I put forward for examination, which has aided numerous individuals, being ignored or overlooked. Science frequently lags behind practice due to the need for empirical results and the time and funding constraints involved in identifying methods to exclude all external variables from the testing process. This is impossible when dealing with thoughts and automated brain processes that safeguard the body. Fortunately, I am not limited by these constraints, and my let's see attitude leaves me open to new possibilities and learning the extent to which the body can heal itself when the opposing thoughts no longer interfere. I can concentrate on learning from each client, independently earning a living only by consistently and successfully achieving results and teaching what I learn.

I maintain that I can repeatedly replicate positive outcomes, which is sufficient proof for me and the thousands of individuals I have assisted to date. However, I will not stop there; my objective is to help as many individuals as possible alleviate chronic pain, and I am willing to collaborate with any researchers to aid them in developing their own successful solutions.    With Love, Steven
