Welcome to Pain Mastery!


Pain will only change if we all understand it - patients, providers, all. As medicine begins to acknowledge and explore the intersection of pain science, neuroscience, and pain psychology, treatments are starting to shift, too. There IS HOPE for people living with pain.


My name is Dr. Rachel Zoffness. I'm a pain psychologist, author, and medical educator at UCSF, Dartmouth, and Stanford. My trainings are designed for anyone wanting to learn more about how pain works, the role of the brain in pain, and how to treat chronic pain effectively using research-backed methods.

For decades, pain has incorrectly been framed as a biomedical problem to be treated exclusively with pills and procedures.

But it isn't working.

Science tells us that treatment must focus on the whole bio-psycho-social picture - the BRAIN in addition to the body. In these workshops, you will learn the science and treatment of pain.
