Working with Kevin was deeply satisfying for me because of his spiritual insight, openness and ability to understand at a deeper level than many sufferers, and in his readiness to heal; few sufferers are ready. In this book The Mindbody Syndrome he captured the very essence of the healing message. It is the best TMS book thus far, in that, he provides practical applications such as practicing presence as well as advice on the internal changes necessary to make the shift back into wellness. This is an excellent overview of the healing process.

Building upon Dr. Sarno’s pioneering TMS work, The Mindbody Syndrome (TMS): a path to recovery & freedom presents detailed and accessible methods and practices aimed at deepening understanding and insight in order to fully integrate TMS recovery. Based on years of comprehensive research and firsthand experience, TMS Coach Kevin Martillo Viner delves deeply into the psychological mind of the TMS sufferer, providing a framework and myriad of tools for the necessary mind training involved in TMS recovery. At the heart of The Mindbody Syndrome (TMS): a path to recovery & freedom is the realization that you are already healed because there is in fact nothing to actually heal. Dr. Viner skillfully reminds us “that countless others have overcome TMS – they’re human, you’re human. They recovered and you can too.”

Throughout my life I have suffered from various manifestations of physical pain, especially low back and sciatica pain, until I learned of The Mindbody Syndrome (TMS) in 2014 and began my own recovery process and awakening. The path is not linear and life continually provides new opportunities for deeper learning and understanding of our need for pain and suffering - yes our that resurfaces time and time again until we realize that we no longer need it. I've come to understand TMS pain as a steppingstone to truth and liberation. 


I approach my study of TMS as an academic scholar, because that is how I've been trained, only instead of being motivated by intellect and scholarly pursuits, I am driven by a desire to be of service and help those suffering and in pain. 

What qualifies me to be a TMS coach? First and foremost, I've recovered from a myriad of TMS manifestations using the TMS recovery approach (click here to read more); I've done TMS therapy; I've consulted with TMS doctors; I've read and reread the entire body of work on TMS; I've done all of the recovery programs from TMS Wiki (I did the entire SEP twice); I did a 4 hour consult with Steve Ozanich; I've been helping people understand TMS and TMS recovery since 2015.  


I live in Brooklyn, NY with my cónyuge Gabrielle, our dos hijos (Hugo y Julián), y dos gatas (Merle y Dolly). I hold a PhD in Hispanic Linguistics and am an Associate Professor of Spanish. Some things I enjoy include: spending time with family & friends, animals, music, movies, nature, meditation, linguistics, hot baths, weight training, and coffee.......but above all I love pursuing personal growth through spiritual exploration and experience, i.e., PRESENCE.
