Mindbody Medicine Patient Panel with Dr. John Stracks

Come hear Dr. John Stracks and two of his patients discuss how using Mindbody Medicine Methods to greatly reduced and even eliminated their chronic physical symptoms. This is a great opportunity to learn more about how people who suffered from chronic pain have helped to heal themselves and live normal lives.

Tension Myositis Syndrome (TMS) is a term that was coined by the late Dr. John Sarno, a physician in New York City who was among the first to clearly understand how influential the mind is on symptoms in the body. Dr. Stracks studied with Dr. Sarno and has now taken Dr. Sarno’s work to the next level, both in terms of his understanding of the science of the mindbody connection and in his treatment methods that include psychological work, group classes, knowledge and education, and support of qualified professionals. Dr. Stracks also serves as a resource for patients who know they have TMS but have not been able to progress with their treatment. If you think you’re suffering from TMS but just don’t quite know what to do next, Dr. Stracks can help you get you on the path to feeling better.

With offices in Chicago's Lakeview neighborhood and Northbrook, John Stracks, MD, LLC was created to offer a different medical experience that embraces a healthy mind as a pathway to a healthy body and rejects medication except as a last resort.
