Osio Documentary Screening: "All the Rage"
This event has already passed
Using a first-person approach to explore the work of physician Dr. John Sarno
and his radical methods to treating back pain, All the Rage examines the connection
between emotions and health. Through interviews with Sarno, esteemed patients, and
experts, the film offers a profound rethink of how we approach our health care.
Dr. John Sarno pioneered a radical approach to treating back pain, instructing patients to focus on repressed emotions as the source. He came to believe that the unconscious mind was activating the autonomic nervous system, and that the repression of unconscious rage was a major contributor to pain. When Dr. Sarno suggested his patients make the connection between their emotions – including their tendency to put themselves under extreme pressure and stress – they rapidly improved. Over the course of his 50+ years in practice at the Rusk Institute of Rehabilitation at NYU, he developed and adapted his treatment program into four bestselling books.
