Reverse therapy is a new body mind healing process that has taken the UK by storm.

It’s is a simple, educational, therapy that teaches people how to work with, and understand, the Body’s need to produce symptoms in certain illnesses. Once awareness has been achieved, then you should be in a position to take appropriate action and remove the need for symptoms.

‘Although it has many imitators it is still the leading-edge solution for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Pain conditions and stress related illnesses.’, says Dr. John Eaton who developed the therapy.

‘In the early days’, he said ‘we used the approach to help people with Anxiety, Panic, Stress and Depression. Then we discovered that Reverse Therapy is also a powerful solution for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia and many other non-specific illnesses such as eczema, psoriasis and auto-immune disease. Since that time we have gone on to experiment with and extend our treatment strategies and we are proud of the fact that Reverse Therapy is now a complete alternative to therapy’.

he also has a number of books available to buy on the technique.

From the very first session Reverse Therapy is said to put you very firmly on the recovery path.
They teach you:
To understand the real cause of the symptoms
To raise Awareness for situations which trigger symptoms
To make links between their unresolved emotions and an increase in symptoms
To use Mindfulness and stay in Awareness in the Present Moment as much as possible
To stay out of negative mental states
To develop positive mental states
To be more assertive
To be more active
To return to a health-sustaining lifestyle


    • I thought that – my acupuncture is helping my sleep no end which then has the knock on effect with me being able to control the pain. My appointment for the Spinal Department in Nottingham has come through for May so it’s a good job the acupuncture is helping a little. 🙂


  1. The idea of understanding the root causes of an issue and dealing with it at that level can be traced back in history to many small groups (many martial arts has this as a base philosphy when dealing with illness). As a society we have moved away from personal responsibility and understanding when it comes to health, placing our trust in well-trained, but at times misinformed professionals. It is time to take back some of the responsibility and improve from within! Great article!


  2. Thanks Lawrence, glad you enjoyed my article. It’s quite fascinating to read and find out all about this, not just because I am sufferer but because it has obviously been around for a long time but not named or treated like it is today.
