If you suffer from chronic back pain, you may be eligible to participate in a paid research study on the benefits of a novel mind-body treatment for chronic pain. Participants will be compensated $200.

The research study consists of two MRI scan sessions 4–6 weeks apart on the CU Boulder campus, before and after treatment. MRI is safe and non-invasive technology for measuring brain function, and participants will be given a photo of their brain to take home.

Eligibility criteria:

  • Ages 21–70
  • Back pain for the last 3 months or more
  • No metal in the body (for MRI safety)
  • Not pregnant
