About this project

PHANTOM LIMB PAIN - THE PROBLEM...

 Amputees suffer pain and other sensations in their missing limbs. It can't be predicted when an Amputee will suffer an episode of pain so they need a solution that is practical and portable so they can have it with them all of the time.

Traditional solutions to this problem are often too expensive for the average amputee and in every case impractical as they are usually bulky and heavy devices such as mirror boxes. My method of stimulating several parts of the brain by combining a variety of psychological techniques allows an amputee to manage their phantom pain and sensations and even control their missing limb so that they can use a prosthetic limb with more confidence.  These are similar techniques to those we use with Athletes to stimulate the brain in order to enhance performance.

Most of the research is done! I just need to get the book written!  

 

WHO IS THIS BOOK FOR?  

This book is, of course, primarily aimed at Amputees.

However, anyone who'd like to help amputees with their pain such as therapists or relatives of amputees would benefit from this book. Also, anyone who is interested in how the mind controls pain and sensation in the body. Of particular interest is how the brain changes physically to accommodate a missing body part and how we can change it back by using mind power!  


WHY BUY THIS BOOK?
 

Amputees - Learn how to take back control of your missing limb and manage pain where ever you are.
Amputee Partners - Knowing what your partner is going through and understanding the multiple types of pain, sensation and behaviours can only help you gain empathy and a further understanding of their issues.
Therapists -You don't have to be a qualified therapist to use these techniques. Anyone can teach an amputee how to reduce their pain. If you are a therapist in any discipline you can add Phantom Limb Pain Management to your 'tool box' and start to work with amputees!

ABOUT THE COMPETITION  

There are a couple of Books about Phantom Limb Pain however, they are extremely complicated designed for consumption by medical students and the like full of complicated Neuroscience. Certainly not for the 'layman'. 
These books cost in excess of £150 each and mainly focused on Prosthetic Limb Management. They do not mention psychological techniques as a form of pain alleviation.

There is not a book aimed at PLP using mind control on the market yet.

    Sports Style Improvement Mp3

    A downloadable version of Steve's CD.

    In most cases Sports Style Improvement is relatively straightforward, any fault in style is easily corrected by hypnosis. It is all too easy to fall into bad physical habits when becoming proficient at a chosen sport. These style problems, like all behaviours, are based in the mind, so hypnosis is the obvious solution.
