The present study is a feasibility study in which we will determine if a mind-body program that we have previously developed for chronic back pain can improve the multiple somatic complaints associated with the COVID Long Haul Syndrome.


This study is a pilot and feasibility study to determine if a mind-body program that we have previously developed for chronic back pain can improve the multiple somatic complaints associated with the COVID Long Haul Syndrome in patients without evidence of ongoing tissue injury. We will perform a 12-week intervention consisting of a series of classes which will focus on knowledge therapy, desensitization, emotional expression, and stress reduction.
