Many obese people find it nearly impossible to lose weight, no matter what they do. They often end up on the yo-yo dieting cycle, where they would lose some weight on each new fad diet, just to regain double as soon as they stop the diet. Scientists have proven again and again that the only formula for successful weight loss and permanent maintenance of your ideal weight is to burn more calories than you consume.

The main reasons for obesity in healthy individuals is binge eating, and snacking when they are not really hungry. Emotional eating is very common too and many people with obesity issues tend to eat when they are stressed, happy or bored.

Pain Management

Pain Management therapy addresses the psychological issues that are part of  chronic pain. Most people don't realize just how common chronic pain and how much it is influenced by the context of our lives. Once medical conditions have been ruled out, pain management therapy can address the influences of unexpressed anger, grief, emotional overwhelm, anxiety, or depression.

Unexpressed emotions, desires or needs often affect pain levels.
