How does it work?
The body’s pain review system is given new information about the lack of need for the pain, so it adjusts the pain level to suit what the body feels is more appropriate.
Is this a Pain Management technique?
No. Pain management is about ongoing effort and rarely leaves you free of pain.
What can I expect?
Your pain is unique to you and so is your perception of its level. At the end of a session you may have a change in that perception to record one of three things: Zero Pain, Reduced Pain or, No Change. No Change is rare and can be an indication that there is an issue that has not yet been diagnosed by a doctor.
Does it work on any pain?
The pain review may bring about changes regardless of the original cause, providing there isn’t still a need to retain it at that level. If there is still a medical reason to keep the pain then your unconscious will not release it.
What reasons or circumstances will stop it from working?
Providing you are of sound mind and rational – not under the influence of mind-altering drugs or alcohol, it may work for you – except where there is more reason to keep the pain than to lose it. Whilst you will gain a better quality of life from being pain-free there are things you may also lose, such as: state benefits, sympathy, help, support, and reasons to not go to places – or do things you don’t want.
Whilst consciously you may deny that any of these influence you, it is your unconscious that decides on the balance of being in pain, or pain-free. The simple test is to answer this question out loud, “Do you want to be free of this pain?”. If your answer is a loud yes, then you are a good candidate. If you hesitated or thought of reasons or excuses, then it might not work. However we may be able to help you with that, please mention this. It is most important you are honest and open.
Do I need the pain until that part heals completely?
No. Pain is a message that once it has alerted you to the problem, and you have done all you can, it is usually no longer needed. Think of a fire alarm, it gets switched off and reset to be alert when the fire is out, even if it has caused damage! Our pain is usually noticeably lower as we start to heal so that we can notice a different pain message to indicate if it isn’t healing.
I am on really strong painkillers, can OldPain2Go ® help me?
Yes, it may. Just think about this for a moment, if your doctor prescribes strong pain tablets or injections, that is the medical profession saying that the pain is not necessary! Painkillers do not stop the pain message being sent out, they simply interfere with it reaching the part of the body it is intended for. OldPain2Go® is a way of asking the unconscious to stop the messages, providing it is safe to do so.
I have a lifelong condition can the pain go?
Yes it may. The old pain message has done its job and alerted you and the medical profession to the problem. So if the old pain message were no longer there, it would allow new pain to arrive as is needed to alert you to a new problem or a worsening condition.
I have a deteriorating condition, how will it work on that?
With deteriorating conditions, you are likely to have regular assessments by your medical practitioner to review the problem area. OldPain2Go® would act like pressing the fire alarm reset button. Your body is aware of the damage caused by the old incident and can reset the alarm to stop ringing so it will automatically ring again to tell you of a new danger.
I have Fibromyalgia, will it work for me?
OldPain2Go® is not a medical treatment or a cure for any illness or ailment. It is simply a way of helping you and your body have a reassessment of the unconscious processes that decides on the need for pain and the level of it. Fibromyalgia is a condition where the message is usually still required, even though, or perhaps because, you are trying to ignore the pain or work through it.
Please read here Steven Blake’s explanation of how he believes the illness starts and what you need to do to be released from it. If you do not have an interest in reading this fully or finding out how to put yourself on the road to recovery, then quite simply OldPain2Go ® is not for you. We can only help people willing to do what is necessary to recover. OldPain2Go ® does have an answer, it might not necessarily be the answer you wanted or agree with (but the National Fibromyalgia Association makes statements that seem to agree with this).
What if there is still a reason to keep the pain?
Then the unconscious will not switch it off, because it would be unsafe to do so. The same reason you don’t take the battery out of a smoke alarm.
Why does my pain get worse and require ever stronger pain relief?
When pain is first triggered it forms a neural pathway in your brain, which fades quickly if the pain is short term. However, if the pain continues it builds up an increasingly stronger neural connection almost like a neural motorway. This is the same way we learn to run things automatically. Unfortunately, we are learning the wrong thing. Pain does not have an end date stamped on it, and the unconscious may “forget” to re-evaluate it or turn it off. There is also an issue with sensitivity to pain that it builds over time.
I have put up with this pain for many years, how could it go in just minutes?
The longer you have had the pain, the more likely it is that it no longer serves a purpose. You are aware of it – nothing can be done (medically) and your doctor prescribes pain relief. These are all signs that the old pain message is redundant. You only need to convince your unconscious of it.
How often do I need treatment?
Typically this is a once only session for that old pain. It works by you asking your unconscious mind to delete the old pain messages. Therefore, the old pain message should not return, just as a deleted answer phone message cannot be played again. The tape is cleared to accept new messages. So you would usually only want a second session if the first session didn’t produce a result you are satisfied with. Or the Practitioner may feel there could be further opportunities for pain reduction and improvement.
I have many different sources of pain, do I need a separate session for each one?
We may be able to help you deal with all issues at the same time. Or we may tackle the most problematic pain issue first and then ask for the others issues to do likewise. It may take more time so please make me aware of this in advance so as to allow sufficient time for your session.
Surely if it numbs an area that would be dangerous if a new injury occurred?
Yes, it would, but OldPain2Go ® doesn’t numb the area. It just reassess the old pain message allowing new pain to come as and when necessary. Holding on to old pain is actually similar to the problem of numbing an area. It means you might not notice and act upon new pain.
Why would it only reduce the pain instead of stopping it?
Usually this is when your own thoughts and beliefs have created a restriction. If you think being pain-free would lead to causing more damage, or that you would forget you had a problem – that would cause it to only reduce the pain instead of ceasing to send out the pain message. Sometimes people see X Rays or scan results, so convince themselves they could not possibly be pain-free with that amount of damage. Hopefully, your practitioner can talk you out of that!
Could I bring the old pain back?
We will instruct you on use of language and internal thoughts. If you keep looking for the pain you have lost it could convince your unconscious to give you pain again. Also, tendencies to exaggerations can intensify pain or make it seem too much of a problem to remove. Take the phrase “this pain is killing me” and you can see that is never true but it will affect how you feel.
My pain comes from a very traumatic event, does that make it harder to get rid of?
Yes, it may, but not necessarily. Sometimes the pain is a message to not do that thing again. This is why, if we fall off something we are told to get back on right away. This is so that we don’t develop a safety program that will continue to give pain, in order to protect us from greater harm. OldPain2Go® also works on emotional pain so you must guide your therapist to the solution for you. Please forewarn me in advance if you believe you have strong emotional issues that may complicate the issue. In some cases you may need to see a different type of therapist.
Is it Hypnosis?
No. The process is the simple setting-up of a yes signal and a direct discussion with your own unconscious under the guidance of the Practitioner. It doesn’t require a trance state.
Is OldPain2Go ® SAFE?
Yes totally. It works by the same internally processing of 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 helping you. Your unconscious then makes the best choice for you, and it has kept you alive all these years.
Medical Research into OldPain2Go ®
Are there published medical results?
Measurement of old pain is subjective to the individual therefore recording of pain reduction data is considered anecdotal rather than a valid scientific study. There are now more than 1000 Practitioners, and that number is rising rapidly worldwide. Teesside University (UK) is doing a feasibility study (Feb 2019). The outcome could lead to the funding for a full blown study Read more
Can you demonstrate results from this?
There are over 140 Client Feedback Videos on the OldPain2Go ® website. Watch here clients describing their personal experiences and their perceptions in the changes of pain level. However, these are personal experiences and therefore are not indicative of any experience you should expect.
What does the medical profession think of it?
Steven Blake, the founder of OldPain2Go, has demonstrated this to doctors. Furthermore, he has also demonstrated on them, all of whom were impressed. He has also trained Doctors, Psychologists and Physiotherapists to become Practitioners in OldPain2Go ®.
