Listening to the body

I spent the first part of my life in pain, and I want to share with you one of the things that helped me create transformation in myself. As a clumsy child with poor posture and hyper-extended knees I sprained my ankles multiple times and even sprained my knees.

These injuries left my ankles and knees unstable. My feet were in so much pain that I couldn’t walk barefoot. A great deal of damage was done to the cartilage in my knees. Finally, I had chronic tightness in my hips and lower back. I believe that these compounded effects were the cause of a herniated disc in my late 20s; that pain was more intense than any of my previous painful experiences had been.

Because of all this damage, I felt fragile: I was incapable of long walks, skating, skiing, or any other sports. My body suffered in weakness and resistance—and the rest of me lived the same way. I felt afraid of life. I felt inadequate and stuck.

So how did I manage to get from where I was then to where I am today in my body?

My body helped me understand that it was capable of great progress, but only if I was patient and respected a certain sequence of events. Later, I organized this sequence as the Physical Strategies of the Mitrea Pain Free System.

Healing my body did not happen overnight, but it did happen. My body showed me what I could accomplish safely right away – and what I had to wait to do.

I learned to listen to my body.

Initially, my efforts focused on my physical body and I felt stronger and healthier month after month, year after year.

But the greatest changes came when I connected with my emotions and learned to employ mental processes that reinforced the healing taking place on the physical plane. As this discovery was unfolding, I continued to study the mental, emotional, spiritual, and energetic aspects and began to create connections among them.

My journey from chronic discomfort, weakness and pain to enjoying life in a strong, flexible, and healthy body taught me that all of us are indeed capable of remarkable healing.

I’ve since dedicated my professional life to guiding others away from chronic pain and start living full and vibrant pain free lives. My mission is to teach others that their healing capacity resides in themselves, not in other people or in the outside world.

Do you know how to start listening to your body?



Start with your MINDSET

The way the physical body works is the way nature works: leaning towards balance and equilibrium, healing and health.


Your physical body, mine, and everyoney else’s are all equipped with extraordinary healing capabilities.

And yet…

Every day, I see people struggling with various levels of discomfort and pain.

Even though they have the innate capacity to heal–like every single one of us– they cannot do so because they don’t think and feel in healing-conducive ways.

You see, the problem is the way we were taught to think about our bodies.

The capacity for healing resides not in other people or in the outside world, but within ourselves. But of course this is not what we were taught.

Epistemologist Gregory Bateson writes:

“The major problems in the world are the result of the difference between how nature works and the way people think.”

So, to paraphrase Bateson’s quote, the problem with your chronic pain is the result of the difference between how your body works and the way you think. 


Solving the problem of pain means addressing not only the body, but also your thoughts about it and your attitudes towards it. 

At Mitrea Wellness we start with teaching you the most important first step in the healing process—your mindset.

By starting with your mindset, your new way of thinking will continuously fuel your healing efforts, perpetuating and moving your healing process forward.

This new mindset reinforces every action you take, so the healing process picks up momentum and power and keeps you moving forward.
