Studying and playing a huge musical string instrument is strenuous ... and not just in the physical aspect (Patrick Süskind knows it!.
I suspect, according to my recent conversations with my daughter, that her pain is less related to "repressed emotions" and unconscious rage/anger or chilhood distress... but rather to very stressful emotional episodes in her past student life.
The professional world of the "classical music" is extremly competitive, mendacious, wild and acutely cruel. "Few bones for too much dogs".
Without no doubt my daughter has suffered from "respectables" teachers, "notorious" professors, "loyal" friends and colleagues,.... humiliation, cruelty, abandonment, rejection,...
How much, or how little? I don't know... but the overprotective primitive/reptilian brain of my rather hypersensitive daughter has made its interpretation and has activate her "inner guard", the defensive/protective mechanism capable of generating pain. That pain, in the most crucial parts of her body, prevents my daughter of following her "too dangerous" vocation.
"Beware: stop your career", "Impossible to follow your way in such conditions", "Hazardous and risky profession",...
The psychological pain (of course TMS) is an obvious prevention of present and future emotionally outrageous situations related to her huge and beloved instrument.
The Sarno solution?
To acknowledge and absolutely accept the emotional source of the chronic pain and... to persuade, by means of a very sincere self-talk, that unconcious "inner guard", the protective brain, that personal growth as well as an acquired emotional detachment and a reliable passion for the music is enough equipment to overcome the future emotional turmoils.
Easy to say ... but difficult to do !
I'll appreciate very much your comments about the plausability of that facet of the TMS concept: pain as learned (from bad past experiences) protection mechanism of present/future presumable emotional conflics.

thanks a lot!

Sounds like a lot of unacceptable (to your daughter) anger could have been generated by exposure to such a hostile environment. Yes, this could lead to a search for unconscious somatic distraction. Has your daughter had a physical assessment (as suggested by Sarno as a starting point)? Is she aware of and accepting of Sarno's ideas (because, in my experience, most people are not - in fact they are extremely upset when you bring it up)?
