Release stress patterns, recreate new neural pathways, and unhook from the chronic pain loop to stop your brain from recreating the pain experience.
Find relief from tension headaches, back pain, TMJ, IBS, fibromyalgia, and more through scientifically proven techniques that address pain at its core.
If you suffer from chronic pain, it’s likely holding you back from experiencing life fully — and the joy and vitality you long for...
Maybe you’ve tried various healing methods, such as physical therapy, injections, contemplative practices, or a pain-management program... and you’re frustrated by the lack of success...
... or relief that’s been only temporary.
You might think your pain is due to aging, but it’s more likely due to the pain patterns you’ve lived with for so long...
Recurring and chronic pain influences your neural pathways, reinforcing pain patterns over time.
This pain “loop” often runs long after the original physical injury is resolved — and your efforts to manage or fix it can perpetuate the loop. Even focusing on or complaining about pain reinforces these patterns.
These loops, which reside in the subconscious mind, are powerfully affected by stress and emotions.
For too long, the accepted approach to pain management relied on physical intervention alone, but the truth is, there are complex mind-body interactions at work...
As it turns out, 90% of chronic pain isn’t connected to anything structurally wrong with us — it’s like a habit that our body, mind, and subconscious get stuck in.
We begin to anticipate pain on a subconscious basis and create neural loops that keep it in place...
And it’s not that your pain isn’t real — it very much is — it’s that we can break the neurological cycle that’s producing the pain by working with a consciousness intervention.
In fact, studies show that stressful life events and physical injuries activate the same neural circuits of danger and pain! People with past trauma often have a lifelong heightened fight-or-flight response in the brain... that’s more likely to activate pain when stressful events occur.
The vast majority of people with chronic pain have this more hypervigilant pain mechanism — and most doctors and healthcare professionals are unaware of it.
The remarkable truth is, even if you’ve had pain for years or decades, you can reverse the pain loop by retraining your brain.
Yes, YOU have the power to eliminate or significantly reduce your pain — permanently!
What will YOUR pain-free life look like?
Your life will open up again… as you spend time with friends and family... plan vacations to all the places you’ve been longing to see…
… return to your favorite dance class… resume a creative project… sit comfortably for your meditation practice or contemplative prayer time...
… walk up and down stairs without hesitation... take an all-day adventure without having to worry that your pain will flare up… enjoy nature again and take in the autumn leaves!
Leading pain experts Hal Greenham and Dr. Howard Schubiner have developed a proven method to treat pain at its source — by resolving pain patterns in your brain and body, while also working through difficult emotions underlying these patterns.
Why Chronic Pain Involves More Than Your Physical Body
Emerging neuroscience suggests that all pain is generated by the brain (just like vision, hearing, and all other sensations) in a process known as predictive coding.
The majority of people with chronic pain do NOT have a clearly identifiable structural cause for their pain, according to Hal and Howard. This includes 99% of headaches and fibromyalgia, 95% of abdominal and pelvic pain syndromes, and 85-90% of neck and back pain.
Many other pain and fatigue syndromes, such as CRPS, CFS, RSI, frozen shoulder, plantar fasciitis, and interstitial cystitis can also be effectively treated using this approach.
Once you understand the three aspects of pain — biological, psychological, and emotional — you can retrain your brain to stop setting off the pain alarm, and significantly reduce or even completely erase pain from your life.
The Emotional Roots of Chronic Pain & Understanding the Mind Body Syndrome
Childhood experiences create very powerful reactions in our minds, and these reactions can live on for the rest of our lives. Emotions that are generated when we’re young can very easily get triggered later in life... and — when triggered — set off a vicious cycle known as Mind Body Syndrome (MBS).
Stress and trauma tend to condition your body to overreact to stressors with an exaggerated fight-or-flight response. The strong emotions that are generated in our minds are stored in the amygdala for the rest of our lives, even if we’re not aware of them.
Once MBS is recognized for the role it plays in your pain loop — or even as the root cause — you can apply Hal and Howard’s scientifically proven and holistic method to resolve your pain and underlying issues.
When you join pain psychotherapist Hal Greenham and Dr. Howard Schubiner for a 7-week LIVE training — Freedom From Chronic Pain: Rewire Your Subconscious Mind to Dissolve Pain Programming — you’ll discover an evidence-based approach to stop chronic pain — AND discover techniques to start training your brain to unhook from pain patterns.
In this revelatory training, you’ll discover:
- Relief from pain caused by injuries, back pain, headaches, irritable bowel syndrome, fibromyalgia, and more
- How pain functions and sustains itself in your mind (which doesn’t mean your pain is not real!)
- The radical neuroscience that explains the power of predictive coding in chronic pain
- That stress and emotions activate the pain “alarm,” which generates physical symptoms
- Powerful mind-body practices to help you stop your brain from recreating the pain experience
- How to achieve mastery and a sense of control over your emotions, reactions to stress, and most importantly, your body
- How to pinpoint and shift the brain’s neural circuits of pain
- Why back or neck pain that doesn’t correspond to an abnormal MRI result means you might have MBS/TMS
- How to successfully interrupt the nerve pathways that are producing pain — and reactivate normal, healthy neural pathways that existed before you were in pain
- A deep understanding of the role of your inner child as your essence, the core of your “feeling part of the self,” and how to bring consciousness and healing to this part
- How to create an effective container for healing through supportive practices, therapeutic relationships, and routines, rituals, and more
- How to feel empowered to shift your relationships and return to the life you may have put on hold for far too long
What You’ll Discover in These 7 Weeks
In this 7-week transformational journey, Hal and Howard will show you how to retrain your brain so you can significantly reduce — or even completely erase — pain from your life.
You’ll “get your life back” as you’re guided, step-by-step, through an evidence-based approach to unhook from pain patterns rooted in the core dimensions of pain — biological, psychological, and emotional — and thrive in your new pain-free life.

Course Sessions Wednesdays at 5:00pm Pacific
This revelatory course will feature LIVE teachings, interactive training sessions, and experiential practices with Hal and Howard. Each session will build harmoniously upon the previous ones, so you can develop a comprehensive, holistic understanding of the practices, tools, and principles you’ll need to master these techniques.
Module 1: Diagnosing Your Pain & Unhooking From the Pain Loop (November 6)
In this first week of the course, you’ll begin with the all-important first step: diagnosis.
The pain that you feel in your body is real — and an incorrect diagnosis will stand in the way of you getting better.
In this module, you’ll gain an understanding of how the brain works and learn to apply predictive coding to your situation.
Your body produces pain because it’s manifesting unresolved stress, and under Hal and Howard’s guidance, you’ll look for the links between stressful life events and your pain — beginning in early childhood and continuing into your present-day circumstances and personality traits...
This week, you’ll dive deep into Mind Body Syndrome (MBS)/Tension Myoneural Syndrome (TMS), the powerful phenomenon in which unconscious emotional issues jumpstart a process that causes physical pain and other symptoms...
In this module, you’ll discover:
- Which symptoms and diagnoses are likely to be caused by MBS/TMS (including fibromyalgia, whiplash, tension headaches, migraine headaches — and many, many more)
- Why back or neck pain that doesn’t correspond to an abnormal MRI results means you might have MBS/TMS
- Lessons from powerful research showing that people can experience mild-to-moderate changes on MRI without corresponding back or neck pain
- Exactly why baseline MRIs and follow-up MRIs are NOT useful predictors of low back pain
- What’s happening inside your body when an emotion causes a physical reaction (for example, your face turning red with embarrassment, or a headache after a stressful day)
Module 2: Rewiring Your Brain — How to Unlearn Pain Programming (November 13)
This week, you’ll discover powerful practice to rewire your brain — and help relieve your pain.
Some of the techniques include meditative work, desensitization, graded exposure, reducing fear, taking control of triggers, and more. Over the seven weeks of the course, these techniques will all become tools in your pain-management arsenal.
Now that you’re aware that your brain has developed pathways that are causing your MBS symptoms primarily because of stressful events, you’ll begin to explore how these painful pathways can be unlearned.
In this module, you’ll discover:
- How to successfully interrupt the neural pathways that are producing pain or other MBS symptoms
- How to reactivate your many normal, healthy neural pathways that existed before you were in pain
- Evidence that your symptoms are coming from neural pathways that are changeable — including having symptoms that come and go, or pain that changes locations in your body
- Why adjusting how you think and react to stressful situations can change your brain and its pathways
- How your brain physically changes with the practices you’ll learn, therapy, and the resolution of psychological symptoms (a phenomenon first witnessed in people with spider phobias)
- How you can investigate your symptoms and keep track of the powerful clues your brain is sending you about how to most effectively ease your pain
Module 3: Transforming Your Fear Response & Other Pain Triggers (November 20)
This class session will build on what you learned last week about rewiring your brain — you’ll deepen your ability to stop (unintentionally) reinforcing your pain.
You’ll experience the breakthrough of realizing there’s no need to be frustrated about your discomfort, or to fight your pain…
Hal and Howard will guide you to welcome in this powerful truth: there is no need to fix anything, because you’re not broken.
In this module, you’ll discover:
- The profound power of relaxing and calming your brain — and how you can resolve to stop struggling against your pain
- The fundamentals of pain triggers, and what’s happening inside your body and brain when they strike
- The conditioned responses you’ve likely developed (without even realizing it) to elements like the weather, light, sound, bending your body, moving, and more
- Anticipatory pain — and why expecting to be in pain can sometimes feel worse than actually experiencing it
Module 4: Healing Family Patterns & Nurturing Your Inner Child to Release Pain (December 4)
This week, Hal and Howard will guide you to understand the family dynamics you grew up with — and how they can exacerbate the chronic pain process.
If you’re like most people, you likely have an established set of emotional patterns within your family of origin, leaving many feelings either under or over-expressed...
Then, as adults, experiences in relationships or work situations can trigger these complex childhood dynamics — flooding the unconscious mind and producing powerful symptoms.
In this session, you’ll discover a powerful structure for gathering insightful information on your family history — and deciding what to do with the associated accompanying feelings.
As you’ll find out, sometimes it's best to express the feelings, and other times its more healing to accept them...
In this module, you’ll discover:
- How your inner child is the essence of who you are, and what makes you unique
- A deep understanding of the feeling part of the self — it’s only partly conscious, yet it contains vast realms of feeling and awareness
- Why you’ve likely learned numerous techniques of disconnection to separate the adult and child within you
- How to nurture your inner child to uncover the root of your pain
- Clarity on what might be happening inside your unresolved feelings that are manifesting in your body
Module 5: Making Peace With Your Subconscious Mind (December 11)
This week, you’ll build on the inner child work you completed in the previous class session — and and bring your inner parents, inner protectors, and other relevant parts of the subconscious mind into focus.
As you’ll discover, the inner dynamics of these parts are absolutely critical to creating your experience of physical and emotional wellness.
In this module, you’ll:
- Create peace with your subconscious mind by making a meaningful connection with your inner child
- Master the art of your subconscious mind into a lively, peaceful state — one that calms your nervous system for the long term
- Discover how to maintain the secure, safe relationship you’ve built with your inner child
- How these connections are powerful medicine for reducing physical pain, reducing anxiety — and creating peace in your psyche and your life
Module 6: Creating a Container for Healing (Even Through the Holidays!) (December 18)
The holiday season can often be among the most emotionally stressful, triggering, and challenging times of the year. This week, you’ll discover how to transform these triggers into a source of insight — and develop a container for healing.
Unless you had perfect parenting for a few generations in a row (which of course, virtually no one has), difficult emotions will rise to the surface during these triggering times, emerging on a spectrum ranging from mild to severe in their intensity.
Creating a container for healing allows you to experience the emergence of difficult feelings, thoughts and memories — without being overwhelmed by them.
Hal and Howard’s favorite analogy for healing your trauma through your container involves picturing a bottle of soda… completely shaken up. There are many emotions inside that want to escape — and if you take the lid off too quickly, they’re going to explode.
And so this week, you’ll learn to create a container for healing that allows you to release the pressure of your emotions a bit at a time, until you’ve released enough pressure that it can all be poured out easily — and your healing can take place...
In this module, you’ll discover:
- The elements of an effective container for healing — including your physical and emotional environment, your routines and rituals, positive relationships, and more
- Supportive practices including meditation and journaling to process feelings
- The importance of therapeutic relationships (maybe with a therapist, doctor, or other trusted healthcare professional) to help guide you on your healing journey
- How to choose the best pace for YOU to discover and process your unconscious material — so you won’t become overwhelmed or lose interest in the process
- An exercise to walk you through an honest assessment of your current container for healing — and how you can enhance what’s already working
- How to recognize whether your strong physical symptoms are already providing a container for you — unfortunately, they’re most likely distracting your attention and repressing your feelings
Module 7: Designing Your New Pain-Free Life (January 8)
In this final class session with Howard and Hal, you’ll work on moving forward with your life.
How do you take what you've learned and step forward confidently into your new body? How will life be different now, with significantly less pain holding you back?
This week, you’ll move forward into creating the kind of life that’s now possible for you.
In this module, you’ll discover:
- Important practices for integrating what you’ve learned on your journey through this course
- Concrete steps to make powerful, lasting changes to your life
- How dynamics with your family and other relationships might change
- How to approach difficult situations and do what you need to do to maintain your well-being
- How to feel empowered to get back into the life you may have had on hold for far too long

What People Are Saying About Hal Greenham and Dr. Howard Schubiner...
“... a massive drop in my pain levels.”
... After only 4 sessions I experienced a massive drop in my pain levels. I felt like I had finally turned the corner with my chronic pain. On top of that I felt like I had released some old emotional burdens — I felt lighter and happier... Hal is an extremely knowledgeable and professional practitioner and I would highly recommend him to anyone with chronic pain symptoms. Healing is possible. I am living proof of that. Don’t give up!
— Danny, Coburg, Victoria
“Dr. Schubiner’s workshop was probably one of most important pieces of work that I did to regain my health and energy.”
Dr. Schubiner helped me understand how my thought patterns were helping to keep a chemical cycle of pain going. I began to experience a lessening of headaches and joint pain immediately. Following two more sessions focusing on meditative practices and journaling to express anger, I was feeling ’lighter’ and less tired. I understand now how much I was contributing to the ongoing symptoms and what I can continue to do to feel physically “normal” again.
— Mary W.
“I sleep better than ever, feel healthier and... have less anxiety over the ‘stressors’ of my life.”
The workshop made me realize a lot about myself. I realized that the pain I felt was tied up with the anxiety I felt every night before I went to bed, especially if I had a big soccer game or tournament coming up or had other stressors. I feel healthier and more relaxed and I have less anxiety over the "stressors" of my life. I am relatively pain free now and I love it! I am back to playing soccer like my old self again which is cool...
— Joanie G.
“To overcome my symptoms without drugs is so empowering, I love it.”
I’ve struggled on and off with intermittent back and hip pain for years. Finding the mindbody approach has been fantastic for me and meant I’ve been able to effectively manage the pain without paying for osteo and other therapies I used to do...
It’s amazing stuff... you have to work at the program, you can’t just forget about it, but you can get great results if you do. To overcome my symptoms without drugs is so empowering, I love it.
— Freedom From Chronic Pain program participant, Tasmania, Australia
“Since taking the workshop, my pain is GONE!”
Since taking the workshop, my pain is GONE! On occasion, I will get a flare up of pain when I am under stress, but then I use the tools that Dr. Schubiner taught me and I get relief. I’m sleeping better, eating better and looking forward to more of a pain-free life in years to come. Thank you Dr. Schubiner for your willingness to share the program with all who want the information.
— Marcia R.
“... after the first two classes in the Mind Body Medicine program, I began to feel a 100% better.”
During the course of the last 32 years, I have tried massage therapy, physical therapy, myofascial release, shots, medications, etc., etc., etc. However, after the first two classes in the Mind Body Medicine program, I began to feel a 100% better. By using the breathing exercises, meditation, and learning to refuse to accept pain in my busy life, I started to heal. Also, recognizing the hurts and fears of my childhood have contributed to my feelings of well-being. Thank you so very much!
— Mary C.
“In two weeks, I was feeling far better; almost pain-free.”
I took [Dr. Schubiner’s] class and... learned so much more than just about TMS. I learned several methods to deal with what’s inside my head and relieve the tension that was directing itself to my back. Dr. Schubiner said so many things that made an awful lot of sense. He talked about “chipping away” at the tension and finding what works for each individual. I also appreciated the fact that he makes the class become a terrific chance to reset your priorities in life. So much of it made sense to me. In two weeks, I was feeling far better; almost pain-free.
— Kevin N.
“I started to calm down and understand for the first time what was behind my problem.”
Dr. Schubiner’s inspirational lecture and guidance helped tremendously. I started to calm down and understand for the first time what was behind my problem. The writing exercises brought out profound information about myself that I was unaware of, even when the subject matter was very familiar. Dr. Schubiner is a true healer. If you are at all skeptical or afraid, that’s okay. That will change once you begin the classes and follow through. Take the classes and you will richly reward yourself.
— Donald T.
“ I had pretty well given up on leading a life that included making any plans or having any dream...”
I had pretty well given up on leading a life that included making any plans or having any dream... I am so happy to say that I now have the ability to recognize that my pain is caused by an accumulation of anger and rage in my unconscious and that it uses my body as it’s outlet and that I no longer allow it to do so. This has taken work on my part, however, I am thankful that I am now able to let go and be pain free.

More Praise for Hal Greenham and Dr. Howard Schubiner...
“I know what it’s like to be constrained by pain, and now I know what it’s like to feel free again.”
My life is basically back to normal, plus I’m less afraid to try new things. I know what it’s like to be constrained by pain, and now I know what it’s like to feel free again. Why not try new things? I feel my mind is liberated too and I’m ready to do things that I never would have imagined.
— Freedom From Chronic Pain program participant, Sydney, Australia
“... I’ve gone off my antidepressants... and largely gotten over my RSI issues...”
Since I’ve started seeing Hal, I’ve quit drinking and smoking, gone off my antidepressants, stopped feeling shy, dramatically improved my relationships with my partner and with my mother, and largely gotten over my RSI issues... Hal has really helped me get in touch with my emotions and given me the capacity to deal with life, rather than avoiding it... I’ve been blown away with how easily I can get in touch with and move through my deepest feelings through body work/somatic psychotherapy.
— Theo, Preston, Victoria
“... now I have the ability to take control over my own health.”
Since I was in my teens I had developed all kinds of physical symptoms which included IBS, acid reflux, back and neck pain, and overall fatigue. My symptoms would come and go throughout an entire year... I decided to see Dr. Schubiner and was diagnosed with Tension Myositis Syndrome. After attending his classes I was able to finally help myself and heal... I not only learned a lot about myself but I have been able to recognize when I get physical symptoms, and now I have the ability to take control over my own health.
— Brian L.
“My 30 years of back pain is now a non-issue...”
Hal has been instrumental in teaching me how to get in touch with repressed emotions, which is the key to eliminating TMS and the chronic pain it causes. In a matter of a few months, my life was turned around. My 30 years of back pain is now a non-issue — I’m exercising regularly and riding my bike for the first time in 15 years.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What’s a virtual course?
A: It’s a great way to engage live and pre-recorded teachings and each other from the comfort of your home! All you need is a computer, mobile device, or telephone. If there’s more than one person in your household taking the course, you’ll each need your own connection. We use Zoom videoconferencing to make it just like an in-person event, where you can ask questions and deepen your exploration of the course themes.
There’s no additional charge for connecting to Zoom with your computer or mobile device. Please note that dialing Zoom from your telephone is a toll call; your telephone service provider will charge you according to your existing long-distance calling plan. International access numbers are available.
“I’ve never seen a course so well put together ever...”
I had never participated before in an online course. The packaging, presentation, inclusion, and Facebook postings created a wonderful, safe cocoon within which to participate. I’ve never seen a course so well put together ever — not in all the years of taking college classes — and I had my doubts about doing an online course. The wealth of organization and ease of learning materials and support made this fun as well.

Q: Can you tell me about the private online community group?
