Healing Resources for Managing Chronic Pain, Support & Comfort too

Welcome to the Princess' healing website. Here you can learn and share techniques, about your pain and condition(s), find comfort and support, view videos about potentially healing treatments and information on chronic pain. I am adding as many tips and techniques as princessly possible, to help your life with pain be a whole lot easier and you a lot happier ta boot. I encourage you to connect with other pain patients worldwide (and on the Guest Book & Facebook page), in an effort to build a plethora of positive methods for our growing community of princesses [and princes] to live — and cope — with chronic pain.

This website is dedicated to increasing awareness of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, or CRPS, formerly known as Dystrophy or , particularly long-term CRPS/RSD, which is so rarely spoken of. Most focus on RSD of 3 to 9-12 months that is still treatable with hope of remission. Long-term RSD is where the patient has had the condition for over that time frame, sometimes as long as decades have passed.

While this is one focus, I hope to help as many people with
chronic pain as possible

There is also healing support for fibromyalgia patients at the Princess in the Tower. The aim is to keep sharing healing and chronic tips, while maintaining a happier outlook. The website is being updated regularly so check back often.

A good starting point for carers and friends would be to read the two letters written by chronic pain patients here.

To prevent getting CRPS/RSD:


Research shows that it can help to prevent CRPS/RSD from developing
