Real people, real relief
Lin Health has given me my life back.
Lin Health has given me my life back. I struggled with daily chronic treatment resistant migraines and POTS for 8 years. My life was significantly affected as well as my husband's and children's. I started Lin Health and their pain repressing treatment in Jan/Feb and by April I was migraine free and also free from any POTS symptoms. I no longer take any medications for anything. My coach was the perfect match for me, always supporting me and meeting me where I was at.
Lin Health has changed my life!
The concept is solid, and the research is hard to dispute. Believing in the research is the most critical step. My pain has generally improved over 4 months from utterly debilitating to 60-80% better on most days. But it takes unavoidable work to chase your demons and recognize patterns that contribute. The Lin program makes it so easy. The most valuable part is my coach, who really cares and really helps. It is a journey, and we have to grow up and realize real improvement is a journey, and not a quick pill!
The access to the care kits and my coach. What I have learned regarding pain and the brains role in it all has been remarkable. I’ve learned through the kits and my coach that a bunch of my pain has been primary brain pain. It’s has given me hope when I was starting to feel really hopeless with it effecting so much of my life. I feel like I am getting my life back again. I would recommend this program to anyone that deals with pain.
Lin Health has changed my life.
My experience with Lin Health has been amazing. I truly have nothing to say for changes or improvements. The information and tools acquired through Lin Health has changed my life, and in more ways than just pain management/resolution. I have and will continue to recommend Lin Health for anyone who is looking to receive help with pain relief. But I honestly think the tools given here can impact people with other debilitating issues such as anxiety, depression, etc.
Fibromyalgia had overtaken my life
Fibromyalgia had overtaken my life. Having tried numerous things over the past 5 years and only getting worse, I was skeptical and nervous from the start. Upon meeting Lauren, my skepticism and nervousness dissipated. Lauren’s genuine sincerity and calming presence enabled me to trust and learn the process. I am more active, much happier, and off pain meds. I am able to live my life again! I gladly recommend Lauren and Lin Health to others.
Amazing program for chronic pain
Amazing program for chronic pain. They pull all the different modalities together to treat chronic pain, and the care kits in the app are simply amazing! Thorough, logical, professional, and excellently presented. My pain recovery coach is wonderful and his program is worth every penny!
I’ve tried other apps/books/programs to…
I’ve tried other apps/books/programs to work on mind-body pain, but I think Lin may be the best. The program is well thought-out, with nuances for using the tools effectiveIy I haven’t seen before, as well as techniques that were new to me. And while the program is detailed, the instructions contain ideas and exercises that are practical and not as theoretical as others I’ve seen. And the coaching has been insightful and invaluable in ensuring I’m moving in the right direction.
Lin has made a HUGE and dramatic impact on my life. I went from being in chronic, severe pain to almost no pain. We’ve been able to learn a lot of root causes for why the pain flares as well, and it’s helped me significantly. I’m incredibly grateful for my coach especially. I most definitely would not have made such fast progress if it wasn’t for her helping me see things I would’ve missed on my own. I’ve been recommending it to a lot of my friends/family who are in pain and they are in awe of what a transformation I’ve had from it.

Lin has been a game changer
Lin has been a game changer. I wasn't able to run for years due to a lingering knee injury I sustained back in high school. Lin gave me the confidence to say that my knee is healthy and my pain is neuroplastic.
First thing I've tried that really helps
My mindset is shifting and more automatic to think thoughts of safety and comfort and reduce panic. I have reduced my medication by over half and as a result of reduced meds and calm, I have also reduced my reliance on Tums to nearly zero.

Dr. Shaheen Lakhan, MD
Lin Medical Advisor
Brain-based treatment approaches are the evidence-based recommendation for primary pain conditions
Breakthroughs in pain science have led to a whole new way of understanding and treating chronic pain. A brain-based treatment approach has been clinically proven to be highly effective in treating primary pain conditions.
While all pain, ultimately, is mediated by the brain, primary pain is pain that is out of proportion to medical findings. This is a very common condition. In the newest medical codes (ICD-11), many chronic pain conditions have been reclassified as a type of primary pain.
Because in primary chronic pain conditions the pain signaling system is over-firing, a brain-based approach that addresses cognitive, emotional, and behavioral patterns allows us to train our brain to change our experience of pain, and in many cases, reverse it completely.
Our approach is proven to work
In a recent study of chronic low back pain, 98% of people reduced their pain and 66% were pain free at the end of treatment when treated with a brain-first approach (Pain Reprocessing Therapy). [Read]
In another series of studies, a different brain-first treatment (Emotional Awareness and Expression Therapy) has been shown to reduce pain levels in patients with chronic pelvic pain, fibromyalgia and medically unexplained symptoms. [Read]
59% of patients who join Lin with medium-to-high pain reduce their pain to low or no pain after six months. And only 1 in 10 patients still regularly experiences high levels of pain.

After watching many patients improve or resolve their chronic pain problems, he works now at The Center for Mind-Body Medicine, which draws upon these new theories to treat chronic pain and other hard-to-treat medical symptoms - without the use of medications.

Learn to regulate your nervous system as well as emotions, stress, and thought patterns to promote healing.
