FACT: Stress causes chronic physical conditions

Chronic pain and other persistent disorders (known collectively as TMS) can be caused by prolonged emotional strain. When the nervous system is stuck in sustained fight-or-flight symptoms can appear all over the body. But symptoms like pain do not necessarily equal damage and the good news is, this does NOT have to be a life sentence.

I'm Dani Fagan, find out how I became my own medicine and broke free from years of chronic back pain. Take your life back and heal yourself with the mind-body connection.

Recovery Journey

The relationship between our emotions and physical disorders is still relatively misunderstood by today's western medical model, that typically prefers to treat only our symptoms and not the root causes.

Physical conditions such as chronic pain, fatigue, Fibromyalgia, migraines, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and many others that are rooted in repressed stress are collectively known as TMS (Tension Myositis Syndrome or The Mindbody Syndrome). TMS recovery involves addressing emotions and mindset instead of the physical body and is WILDLY successful for millions of people including me.

My Recovery Journey Roadmap highlights the techniques I used to recover from years of chronic pain that you can follow at home. Find out what to expect and how to manage along the way with all my favourite TMS resources and tools including my tailored Yoga for TMS program. Connect with experts, practitioners and thousands of others just like you that not only understand what you're going through but are waiting to help you.
