Saw tonight. Great production and good Q&A session led by the documentary film maker afterwards. More emotional than instructional which was good. Lots of cool footage of the good doctor and followers.

A good promo for TMS for sure. Did you find it odd that he said he also got relief from reiki and acupuncture? Both strategies that Sarno disavows.

Don't know anything about reiki. Acupuncture (with electricity?) made my sciatica worse temporarily. Can't remember this part of the documentary, but I know the film maker was grasping at all straws so it sounds right. Yes, Sarno and any purist followers (like me) would advise one to avoid any therapy that is physically based and would add that any improvement gained from these methods would be due to the placebo effect and most likely to be of short duration.

Been there, done that--did hundreds of accus with a now "ex-friend" and did NOTHING for anything except empty my wallet and some relaxation while on the massage table, under the heat-lamps, soothing woo-woo sounds on the muzak, with the needles in me--you ain't going no where. Same for the reiki, only had to do a couple of sessions of that before I was onto the voo-doo. Basically, it's for lazy body-workers who just wave their arms over you in the air instead of rubbing you. Here's one of numerous articles on accu voo-doo below the google fold :

Thanks for the article, Tom. Maybe that's why acupuncture didn't work for me - I don't remember getting any woo-woo sounds.

Right. He ran down a list of approaches, but didn't call them out as placebos - it may have been a deliberate choice in order to not alienate alternative medicine enthusiasts. I also found it mighty convenient that the filmmaker had a major TMS relapse while he was making the doc. It's plausible I guess, but It pinged my BS detector as being staged.
