Can You Be Pain Free?

Have you been in Pain a long time?

If  you  have  been  in  pain for sometime, you may be sceptical of this concept!
I’d be skeptical too except the founder of OldPain2Go®, Steven Blake, has been pain free since 2011 from a back problem that has blighted his life for over 40 years.

I’m a Certified OldPain2Go® Practitioner and have utilized this remarkable methodology since 2018.  Call me so I can help you become free of pain!

Pain has a purpose when it relates to a new injury or problem. It gives us the urgency to deal with the issue, relevant to how much of a problem it is. However, once we have had a proper medical diagnosis and the tissues are healed, or will never heal, and no more can be done except pain relief, it seems the pain should be redundant as it has served its purpose.

Self Healing

Our bodies are miracles of nature and in most cases they heal themselves with no conscious input. OldPain2Go® is about you getting your unconscious and conscious aspects to talk to each other. The practitioner acts as an intermediary in the process.

This is not like anything else and all a practitioner needs to do is talk with you, it is not hypnosis – no trance is needed.

OldPain2Go® is a simple methodology based on how the brain processes things, so whilst we all store different information in our head we do tend to process things in the same way as everyone else.

Still a need?

When we continue in pain, long after the initial warning is unnecessary, we need to challenge whether what seems like an old, useless, out of date pain message is still needed. This can only be done at the level of the unconscious and your Practitioner will guide you each step of the way.



I don’t ask you to believe it – because most people don’t believe it even after they can no-longer perceive any pain. However, you DO need to WANT to be pain free, and not have more reason to keep the pain than to lose it!



Questions and Answers


Please note: This does not constitute medical advice nor is it a substitute for it. You must have been diagnosed by a medical professional who has prescribed or advised pain relief. An OldPain2Go® Practitioner will work with you to help you access the part of your mind that deals with your own healing processes and help you ask for it to review your pain messages. It is not a treatment, it is a non-medical intervention of self work.


Q. Can you demonstrate what results your clients have?
A. All results are individual and only relate to the person giving feedback. So the results I can show you are not indicative of any experience you could expect.

Q. What does the medical profession think of it?
A. I have worked with many clients referred to me by pain management physicians, all of whom have been impressed. These clients are open minded enough to contact me.

Q. Does it work?
A. Yes it can with a client who is positively wanting to be pain-free.

Q. Is this a Pain Management technique?
A. No. Pain management is about ongoing effort and rarely leaves you free of pain.

Q. What can I expect?
A. Your pain is unique to you and so is your perception of its level. At the end of a review session you may have a change in that perception to record one of three things: Zero Pain, Reduced Pain or, No Change.

Q. Does it work on any pain?
A. The review may bring about changes regardless of the original cause, providing there isn’t still a need for it to be retained at that level. If there is still a medical reason to keep the pain then your unconscious will not release it.

Q. Do I need to be in pain until that part is completely healed?
A. No. Pain is a message that once it has alerted you to the problem, and you have done all you can, it is usually no longer needed. Think of a fire alarm, it gets switched off and reset to be alert when the fire is out, even if it has caused damage! Our pain is usually noticeably lower as we start to heal so that we can notice a pain message indicating if it isn’t healing.

Q. I am on really strong painkillers, can an OldPain2Go® Practitioner help me?
A. Yes, they may. Just think about this for a moment, if you are prescribed strong pain tablets or injections that is the medical profession saying that the pain is not necessary! Pain killers do not stop the pain message being sent out they simply interfere with it reaching the part of the body it is intended for. OldPain2Go® is directed at you asking for messages to be stopped, providing it is safe to do so.

Q. I have a lifelong condition can the pain go?
A. Yes it may. The old pain message has done its job and alerted you and the medical profession to the problem. If it is no longer perceivable it will allow new pain to arrive as is needed to alert you to a new problem or a worsening condition.

Q. I have a deteriorating condition, how will it work on that?
A. On deteriorating conditions, you are likely to have regular assessments by your medical practitioner to review the problem area. OldPaín2Go® would act like pressing the fire alarm reset button. Your body is aware of the damage caused by the old incident and can reset the alarm to stop ringing so it will automatically ring again to tell you of a new danger.

Q. Why does my pain get worse and require ever stronger pain relief?
A. When pain is first triggered it forms a neural pathway in your brain, which fades quickly if the pain is short term. However, if the pain continues it builds up an increasingly stronger neural connection almost like a neural motorway. This is the same way we learn to run things automatically. Unfortunately, we are learning the wrong thing. Pain does not have an end date stamped on it, and it may ‘forget’ to re-evaluate or turn off.  There is also an issue with sensitivity to pain that it builds over time.

Q. I have put up with this pain for many years, how could it go in just minutes?
A. The longer you have had the pain the more likely it is that it no longer serves a purpose – you are aware of it – nothing can be done (medically) and your doctor prescribes pain relief. These are all signs that the old pain message is redundant. All that is required is for you to convince your unconscious of it.

Q. How often do I need treatment?
A. Typically this is a once only session for old pain. It works by you asking for the old pain messages to be deleted, therefore, the old pain message should not return, just as a deleted answer phone message cannot be played again and the tape is cleared to accept new messages. A second session would usually only be wanted if the first session didn’t produce a result you are satisfied with, or the Practitioner feels there may be other opportunities for improvement.

Q. I have many different sources of pain, do I need a separate session for each one?
A. No, the practitioner may help you deal with all issues at the same time or tackle the most problematic pain issue first and then ask for the others issues to do likewise. It may take more time so the practitioner should be made aware in advance so as to allow sufficient time for your session.

Q. I have Fibromyalgia, will it work for me?
A. OldPain2Go® is not a medical treatment or a cure for any illness or ailment, it is simple helping you and your body to reassess the unconscious processes that decide on the need for pain and the level of it. Having Fibromyalgia is a condition where the message is usually still required, even though, or perhaps because, you are trying to ignore the pain or worth through it.

Q. What if there is still a reason to keep the pain?
A. Quite simply the unconscious will not switch it off, because it would be unsafe to do so. The same reason you don’t take the battery out of a smoke alarm.

Q. What reasons or circumstances will stop it from working?
A. Providing you are of sound mind and rational – not under the influence of mind-altering drugs or alcohol, it may work for you – except where there is more reason to keep the pain than to lose it. 

While you will in a better quality of life from being pain-free there are things you may also lose such as: disability benefits, sympathy, help, support, and reasons to not go to places you don’ want. While consciously you may deny that any of these influence you, it is your unconscious that decides on the balance of being in pain, or pain-free. The simple test is to answer this question out loud, ‘Do you want to be free of this pain?’ If your answer is a solid and loud yes, then you are a good candidate. If you hesitated or thought of reasons or excuses then it might not work. However your practitioner may be able to help you with that, please bring this to their notice. It is most important you are honest and open with them.

Q. Surely if it numbs an area that would be dangerous if a new injury occurred?
A. Yes, it would, but it doesn’t numb the area, it just reassess the old pain message allowing new pain to come as and when necessary. Holding on to old pain is similar to the problem of numbing an area, it means new pain might not be noticed and acted upon.

Q. Why would it only reduce the pain instead of stopping it?
A. This is usually a restriction placed there by your thoughts and beliefs. If you think being pain-free would lead to causing more damage or that you would forget you had a problem – that would cause it to only reduce the pain instead of ceasing to send out the pain message. Sometimes people see x-­Rays or scan results, so convince themselves they could not possibly be pain-free with that amount of damage. Hopefully I can talk you out of that!

Q. Could I bring the old pain back?
A. We will instruct you on use of language and internal thoughts. If you keep looking for the pain you have lost, it could convince your unconscious to give you pain again. Also, our exaggerations can intensify pain or make it seem too much of a problem to remove. Take the phrase “this pain is killing me” and you can see that is never true but it will affect how you feel.

Q. My pain comes from a very traumatic event, does that make it harder to get rid of?
A. Yes, it may, but not necessarily. Sometimes the pain is a message to not do that thing again. This is why if we fall off something we are told to get back on right away so that we don’t develop a safety program that will continue to hurt us, in order to protect us from greater harm. Speak to Barbara who may have other skills to help you over that trauma. OldPain2Go® also works on emotional pain, so you must guide me to the solution for you. Please forewarn me in advance if you believe you have strong emotional issues that may complicate the issue.

Q. Is it Hypnosis?
A. No. The process is the simple setting-up of a yes signal and a direct discussion you will have with your own unconscious under the guidance of the Practitioner, no trance state is needed.

Q. Is it SAFE?
A. Yes totally. It works by the same internally processing of your unconscious that keeps you alive, runs your heart, your lungs and every other cell in your body. Together we just make it aware of that the pain is more of a problem than helping you. Your unconscious then makes the best choice for you, and it has kept you alive all these years.

Q. Why isn’t it well known?
A. People don’t really seek out the help they don’t know exists and are therefore cynical in trying it. it sounds and feels unbelievable long after you no longer feel any pain. It’s a bit of a vicious circle when people don’t take the opportunity because it seems like no-one else has! All my client’s hoped it would work but didn’t really believe it could until they saw it happen.
