The Pathways program includes over 60 online pain therapy sessions and additional custom sessions depending on your level of pain and condition – making it the most comprehensive pain therapy program available! We leave no stone unturned in our journey to free you from persistent pain.
"Pain is just your brain's opinion of what's going on in your body. We can change that opinion"Sandip - Founder of Pathways
Our core pain therapy sessions are audio based and last anywhere from between 2 and 20 minutes. We make learning and practice interactive by incorporating interesting quizzes between sessions, you can record and track how your pain changes over time, and our visualization sessions are complimented with your own online avatar. When you can see pain melt away, it makes the possibility of breaking the pain cycle that one step closer.
We have an extensive free trial and affordable paid plans for complete access. And that’s backed by our money-back guarantee if you don’t see a reduction in pain.
