Georgina Oldfield, MCSP, Physiotherapist and Founder of SIRPA, interviews Dr. Batson about her pain recovery story
From producers Kent Bassett and Marion Cunningham, “a feature-length documentary that explores the chronic pain epidemic by following a group of patients as they attempt a last-resort treatment called mind-body medicine. They undergo an intensive program that involves confronting the emotional roots of their suffering and making astonishing discoveries about the nature of mind and body. Through animation and archival footage, the film also will present recent findings in neuroscience and medical research that ask urgent questions about what’s behind this epidemic.”
“We can’t keep killing people with an outdated treatment of disease—at this point, it’s not all that different than bloodletting in the eighteenth century.”
“Dr. Batson shares the story of how she found a solution in an unlikely place: her own brain.”
“Very rarely, an app comes along that changes your life….”

“Using a first-person approach to explore the work of renowned physician Dr. John Sarno and his radical methods to treating back pain, ALL THE RAGE examines the connection between emotions and health. Through interviews with Sarno, esteemed patients, and experts, the film offers a profound rethink of how we approach our health care.”
A New York Times editor remembers Dr. Sarno as an original thinker and courageous physician willing to think outside the box in order to heal his patients, no matter the professional cost.
