"Cynthia gave me my life back. Not that I didn't have a life, it just wasn't a fun life. Probably the most positive and compassionate pain coach out there! I didn't recognize myself after learning my "Pain-Free Formula". Cynthia taught me how to practice self-care and take time for daily mindfulness so I could enjoy the life I deserve after 10+ years of chronic back pain.
Thanks for everything!"

"I've been working with her for the past 2 months and her program is AMAZING. It narrowed down my pain-point issue and I've made amazing strides in changing how chronic pain affects my life. I feel like I can do something about it and lessen the pain and even strengthen the belief that I can overcome it! She is very affordable. She is an angel. Truly. Thank you Cynthia Austin!!!"

“I am invested in understanding everything there is to know about the science of pain so I can help frustrated people living with chronic pain who are tired of suffering discover their individualized "Pain-Free Formula" with the goal of recovery or significantly reducing pain so that they can finally participate fully in life again.”
Cynthia Austin is a pain coach that is an expert on coaching the chronic pain experience.
She is the founder of My Pain Coach, LLC, a company that specializes in helping people find
their MPC Pain-Free Formula™ so that they can create lives they love and do the things they enjoy
Cynthia is a nationally board-certified health and wellness coach in the United States that has
her own chronic pain recovery story that led to her becoming a pain coach.
She works passionately to support clients and to educate the medical community that “pain
management” is managing the “negative status quo” when using only the biomedical model in
addressing chronic pain and that we can recover from chronic pain when we use the right
evidence-based tools through a biopsychosocial model.
She has developed a step-by-step system that helps people regain control over their lives after
developing chronic pain. Her goal is to help as many people as possible find relief from their
chronic pain and get back to doing the things they love on a daily basis.
Cynthia’s story has been featured on TMS Global Live, Fit News Podcast, and in VoyageOhio, teaching courses about chronic pain recovery, and she has written pieces for Remedy, the US Pain Foundation’s blog, and The Mighty's blog.
Cynthia has also studied under leading pain specialists and top health and wellness professionals, obtaining education through one-on-one webinar training with renowned pain researchers and educators in the United States.
