As a retired surgeon, I have a very unique perspective regarding pain. Why? Because I not only had to manage my patients’ post-operative pain and pain related to various diseases, but I also had to manage my own chronic pain drug-free after a life-threatening accident.

During this chapter in my life, I realized that everything I had been taught about chronic pain throughout my medical training was wrong!

Our body harbors the most powerful pharmacy known to mankind that lives deep within our subconscious mind. I have found that using hypnosis as a tool to work with the subconscious mind is the most effective way to access this innate pharmacy. Decades of medical literature support hypnosis for pain management and other medical conditions, as well as medical associations worldwide.

Various State and Federal Governmental Agencies (e.g., Center of Disease Control ( have mandated the use of non-pharmacological therapy and non-opioid pharmacological therapy as a first line of treatment for chronic pain. Unfortunately, they haven’t educated or clearly directed physicians and the public towards specific modalities to effectively manage chronic pain.

This is why I created The Pharmacy Within; an experiential, self-directed, educational program that complements the current treatment you are already receiving from your healthcare provider. Learning how to access The Pharmacy Within is a simple, relaxing, and enlightening process that only takes a few sessions to become competent and be on your way to a pain free life.
