‘This Might Hurt’…

…is the title of a film about curing chronic pain caused by medically unexplained symptoms like: restless leg syndrome, fibromyalgia, repetitive strain injury (RSI), tinnitus, irritable bowel syndrome. See the trailer of this film:

The film is about a science-based program, the Emotional Awareness and Expression Therapy (EAET). EAET sees a relationship between emotions and chronic pain. This program helps patients in 5 steps to unlearn their brains to reduce or even eliminate the chronic pain. One of the steps is doing emotional processing.
The founder and director of this program, Dr. Howard Schubiner from Providence Park Hospital, Southfield, Michigan, USA, did several surveys about the efficacy of EAET.
