Vicki Ellis, MS
Vicki Ellis, MS teaches others how to train their nervous system to control chronic pain. Although Vicki has suffered from chronic pain most of her life, she appreciates it because the pain pushed her until she discovered science-based Intrinsic Touch and mindfulness-based techniques to stop her pain. When she teaches her techniques to others, the vast majority are able to control their pain, too.
Vicki studied neurobiology to earn her Biomedical Science/Anatomy Master’s degree from Colorado State University (2001). After using her CB Intrinsic techniques for several years, she applied her training to review dozens of current, peer reviewed, neuroscience research articles regarding how the nervous system processes pain. Her techniques for stopping pain are in line with the research. Sharing that information helps others know these techniques are valid.
Vicki’s book Chronic Pain Control: Altering Reality describes bottom-up (from the source of pain to the brain) and top-down (from the brain to the source of pain) techniques for nearly everyone to control their own pain. It also provides reader-friendly, scientific explanations for how these techniques work, citing dozens of research articles. Through her book, readers learn how and why their nervous system is easily taught to control chronic pain to the point of stopping it for significant periods of time.
Vicki is a lifelong learner with over a dozen years of mostly college science courses, was a research biochemist, taught biomedical science college courses, and serves as a board member of Colorado Association of Psychotherapists. She lives in Fort Collins, Colorado where she currently develops and teaches CB Intrinsic Emotion Management/Conflict Resolution, Stress Recovery, Better Sleep and Chronic Pain Control courses and classes.

[Sports Injuries] The Touch technique that Vicki showed me during our one on one session has helped tremendously. When she first was telling me that you could tickle yourself to make pain go away I was kind of skeptical but it actually has worked wonders for me. When Vicki first did the technique on my shoulder I didn’t have pain for about a week and my shoulder felt great, but after about that 6th day my shoulder started to hurt again, so I just stimulated the area like Vicki showed me and just like that the pain was gone! This technique of pain control needs to be shared across the world! It really works!

[Sports Injuries] My name is Darryl Martin. I am a Guest Host / Sales Rep at MSERADIONETWORK, Hosting and Guest Hosting shows for two years. Vicki Ellis came into my life at an appropriate time. At 53-54 I began experiencing pains from sports and miscellaneous injuries derived from youthful adolescent mischief. Nothing major but now in my fifties, it’s CONSTANT. After reading Chronic Pain Control – Alternatives to Pain Management [Vicki’s first book] a LIGHT CAME ON INSIDE. Further discovery led to my closer reading about Vicki’s Mindfulness-Based Chronic Pain Control (MBCPC). Myself and Vicki Ellis thereafter met at KZKO RADIO STUDIOS. Our DJ/PRODUCER’s computer had crashed. As the show is podcast Vicki and I continued a lengthy discussion about her book, which she brought copies of (autographing several). I revealed that I immediately tried techniques through including becoming mindful of my internal mental reaction and thoughts about pain. I was simply perceiving a thing in my mind that my mind constructed, due to my limited knowledge of pain. Control of chronic pain Takes one Step in our minds. Mastery over our mental reaction to physical chronic pain could last a CONTINUAL lifetime. I now have the best way for understanding and controlling Chronic pain – my reaction to the same.
Vicki, everything I’ve encountered, especially considering MBCPC, is mind altering. I have had deviated septum problems all my life. My sinuses clear when I think MBCPC. Yours is a path of comprehensive understanding of Chronic Pain Management. Humanity benefits from any discourse there of.

[Cystic Fibrosis, 1 of 3] Hello, I am Bob and have been a scientist and science teacher for many years, until having to go on disability. I have recently been working with Vicki Ellis to help me with managing some chronic pain caused by my form of Cystic Fibrosis. Where other methods, meds., or attempts to reduce my frequent small intestinal spasms, that result in constant pain at times, have had minimal if any relief over the years, Vicki has a unique scientific, and neurological approach that gives me amazing pain relief almost immediately. But this technique of Intrinsic Touch and the feather light stimulation of the right neurons is a major breakthrough in my pain management which has allowed me to take control for the fist time (I am 55) in my challenging life. Vicki’s methods are unlike any thing I have experienced from any other pain management. If you are frustrated with your current pain management methods, I can’t think of a better alternative that will definitely yield the relief and relaxation you have been trying to achieve. JUST DO IT!!! You will be glad you did. It is changing my life and outlook on my future.
[Cystic Fibrosis, 2 of 3 cont….] Hello again! I have been working with Vicki Ellis for CB Intrinsic chronic pain control. I had previously written a testimonial and now want to give an update on the continuing results and life changing outcomes for me from daily practice with the CB Intrinsic Touch and chronic pain control methods I learned. I had mentioned last time how much of a noticeable and unexpected complete difference resulted in helping me manage some of my Cystic Fibrosis chronic pain symptoms. What has also been noticed more recently, and is another life changing result, is the Intrinsic Touch on my abdomen for nightly cramping relief has also started stimulating my intestines to become motile during the night and early morning. For decades, they had always become dormant and painful. Now, my cramps rarely come at night as my nervous system is unlearning the chronic pain response, and the Intrinsic Touch always brings me relief in minutes and I fall back asleep for the rest of the night! I had trouble getting a good complete night sleep for previous decades until now. Now every day starts out so much better; not just from my better uninterrupted sleep and much less pain (if any), but also from this motility issue finally being addressed with positive results for the first time ever. One time last week I even slept until 10:30 am and that was very rare. In addition to all the above, Vicki has also been able to show me the Intrinsic Touch method to relieve and remove my lower back muscle pain and spasms. The pain left in a couple days instead of a week +. WOW!! Nothing else has ever brought this much control of pain and relief (often completely), which also resulted in the unexpected beneficial intestinal motility stimulation to help relieve some of my Cystic Fibrosis symptoms. I’ll tell you, my days and nights are so much more awesome and comfortable. Life just got a whole lot better because of the undeniable results and relief from the Intrinsic Touch method. Regardless of how much time my Cystic Fibrosis gives me, I know I will be able to be pain free and much more functional in my daily life!!
[Cystic Fibrosis, 3 of 3 cont….] Well, I just have to share this; 2 nights ago, I went to dinner with my daughter to celebrate my 56th birthday at a local steak house. I had a NY Strip steak, baked potato, dessert and, for the first time in 4 years, I had a glass of red wine (Merlot). I don’t eat like that usually any more because of how my intestines couldn’t handle the digestion with my Cystic Fibrosis. This would have been another night of pain, nausea and discomfort, like in the past before learning chronic pain control from Vicki and CBi techniques. But for the first time in years, I slept all night like a baby, never waking up even one time in any discomfort. The wine sat fine. And the next morning, my gut was fully motile and relaxed. Previously, before taking Vicki’s class, the wine would have really caused me painful problems, but my organs are healing so much now that it was just another easy meal for my system. I can eat like I did in my 20’s. WOW!!! No indigestion from the wine or other severe pain spasms from such a rich meal, even the whole next day. This Intrinsic Touch causing my chronic pain response to be relieved and unlearned by my system is the best thing to happen to me in decades. NO KIDDING!! I can’t wait for the next steak and just one glass of fine wine, and any time I want. What a relief knowing I can eat foods I’ve loved but over time had to cut out of my diet. I think it’s time for some more celebrating of a better life for me now!! I may have Cystic Fibrosis, but it doesn’t have me any more! YES!!!!!
