The greatest opponent a martial artist will face is pain. This pain might manifest itself in the form of a traumatic injury or in the chronic aches and pains that come with such a highly physical activity. Whether a martial artist can continue his practice may be determined by his ability to cope with injuries and to heal quickly. As a martial artist, Dave Nelson has experienced his share of injuries, including a bout with a torn meniscus. Fortunately for him, he had spent years using hypnotism as a therapy for helping others deal with their painful injuries. Now he was able to use the amazing capacity the mind has for healing to help overcome his own painful injury. Using the layout of a dojo as a metaphor for the workings of the mind, Nelson explains how hypnotism can help a martial artist deal effectively with chronic or severe pain. Nelson explains the weapons that are readily available to anyone for fighting the negative energies of pain and regaining their health. Nelson also provides a series of self-guided trances that will help the martial artist invoke their own healing trances, allowing them to return to the dojo and practice their favourite martial arts discipline.
