The spirit of our work
Improving Quality of Life through Pain Management.
We have taught the protocol for over a decade to thousands of students across the world. Our students include hundreds of employees of government organizations DOD (Department of Defense), the US Military, VA, IHS (Indian Health Service), NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization), MOD (Ministry of Defense, UK). Over this period, we collected clinical observations and questions from students and organizations. We also witnessed the growing interest in the protocol, in pain management techniques and in a need to ensure (1) a coherence in the basic practice of the protocol, (2) a community of practitioners who can share experiences and information on a platform and (3) a referral roster of active members that can be used by patients in health care organizations
