Reviews of the Curable App from the Google Play & Apple App Store:
Doing wonders for anxiety and headaches
by Emily55999 on Jan 7, 2020
Curable is well worth the investment if you are seeking ways to improve quality of life from pain and suffering. I am very thankful to have this tool by my side when I do have a flare up. This is a wonderful approach to moving towards healing and understand what pain is and how to deal with it.
I wish I would have found this sooner. This is not only beneficial for pain understanding but will help in other facets of my life.
Only exercises that will benefit you and your concerns are given to you so it feels very personalized. I can’t express how much this is going to help me in my day to day life.
Curable Put Me on the Road to Recovery
by Mudmomma2020 on Jan 2, 2020
After being in pain for nearly 2 years, going through extensive medical testing & procedures, and ultimately getting no help for the medical establishment except pain medication, I came across an ad for Curable app on social media. I was already open to the idea that a lot of my pain was coming from emotional trauma, but didn’t have the tools to deal with my issues.
I have now been on Curable for six weeks and I’ve already noticed a difference. This is not a magic pill, but it does work! It requires doing the exercises, daily if possible, to see slow but steady results. And...Along the way there is a lot of peer support if you need it! I was cautiously optimistic at first, but after a few weeks on the app, I signed up for a lifetime access. In a very short time I have come to rely on the tools that Curable has given me, especially during flare ups. I also love the access to the Curable community. It has done me an enormous amount of good to know that I am not alone on this journey.
Take heart, there’s hope for you if you’re in chronic pain. ❤️

Within a relatively short period of time working with Curable, I have drastically reduced full-body nerve pain symptoms that have mystified doctors for months. It sounds unbelievable, but the science is sound and these methods are absolutely worth a shot if you’re someone who suffers from chronic pain of any kind. I recommend skeptics listen to a few of the podcast episodes (particularly the ones with Alan Gordon and Tim Flynn) if they’re unsure whether their symptoms can be helped through cognitive work of this kind. The app is subscription-based, but it’s helped me more than all the other treatments I’ve tried—COMBINED. The price is pennies compared to the good it’s done for me and so many others. The developers have their hearts in the right place and know exactly what it’s like to live in pain. If you’re reading this and thinking to yourself, “I can’t stand placing my hope in another bust treatment idea”, please just give Curable a shot—it may turn out to be exactly what you need. Cheers!
Worth the effort
from MadelineGrifon Nov 17, 2019
After suffering a herniated disc at 27 from weightlifting I was completely lost in a haze of chronic pain. Even after being released from physical therapy and cleared to go back to work teaching I was still struggling with severe pain in my leg and back. I was still unable to stand for longer than 30 seconds, to walk more than a quarter of a mile. My job, showering, going to grocery and working out all became huge sources of pain. I was really down. I felt completely unlike my normal active happy self and I couldn’t imagine how to get back there. Then I found Curable. In the first 20 minutes of listening to the introductory lessons I started to feel relief. Now, I’m two months almost entirely pain free! It’s been hard work, it was not an immediate cure, and I still struggle with pain some days, but Curable gave me a way to deal with pain that I thought I would have for the rest of my life and it got me back to myself :)
Walks you through it all
from Sadie110 on Jul 29, 2018
The mind body connection is so important to understanding why we have pain and how to cope with it. I am so impressed with the cofounder’s courageous journey to help themselves heal and share this with the world. This app is the future of pain management and takes you through an in-depth journey of understanding how we can help ourselves. The knowledge shared in this app goes far beyond what over a decade of doctors office visits provided me. It’s well worth the small fee considering the value you can gain having a tool like this to work with...
Life changing app
from Lilly07 on Dec 15, 2019
This app has been life changing for my health. I got a concussion 2.5 years ago and have struggled with PCS, headaches, migraines, chronic pain since then. I can’t believe it took me 2.5 years to make the connection that my mental health and how I mentally approach pain affects my pain. I now tell every person I know about this app, including my doctors. The medical field needs to know about this app because I’ve learned that to not acknowledge the mental aspects of pain is to miss half the picture. If you’re struggling, trust me, this app is worth your money!
Evidence-based & user friendly. Game changing for chronic injuries!
from MeggyJ19 on Oct 10, 2019
This app has been game changing for me. I am so happy I stumbled across it. It’s free to try, then you pay to subscribe for the year. I would recommend to anyone experiencing chronic pain or injury.
I’ve seen more progress with my injuries in the past 6 weeks using the app than I have in the past couple years going through the medical system. I don’t know why this information isn’t more main stream!? The education, brain-training exercises, meditations, writing exercises and the Facebook community have all filled a major gap in my treatment. Thank you Curable!
From couch to ultramarathons
from benb612 on Oct 10, 2019
After developing extreme lower back discomfort, I went from running over a dozen competitive marathons and ultramarathons to having trouble getting out of bed. I was diagnosed with an L5-S1 herniated/bulging disc in my back and tried everything I could find to help find relief. Nothing seemed to help and I became a different person, completely focused on the discomfort, worried my life was over as I defined it. I found the Curable app and it’s been a huge part of my healing. the discomfort presented itself in early 2018, I found the app in early 2019, and as of late 2019, I’ve completed a 100k in the alps and won a 50 mile race. I’ve gained my confidence, activity level, happiness, and mental health back and I am incredibly grateful to Curable for being a part of that recovery. Give it a try, and put any skepticism aside.
A life changer - literally
from Rncsydney on Aug 12, 2019
I woke up this morning and genuinely wondered if this app had all been a dream because I still can’t figure out how it’s had such a profound impact on my life in such a short time. Until recently I’ve had a migraine almost constantly, hovering over me waiting to make work, relationships and socializing that much harder. Medications sometimes worked and sometimes didn’t, and then along came this app and everything’s changed. Through a mix of education, meditation, brain training and writing it’s helped me to understand how pain works, removed the fear, and reduced the severity and frequency of my migraines more than any of the medications I’ve taken. The app experience itself is also very welcoming and user-friendly. I recommend it to anyone who’s determined to get out of the pain cycle.
from saralorenzfiddle on Aug 5, 2019
I am so thankful for the discovery of Curable. As a violin and piano teacher with pain in both my wrists I was very upset with my lack of healing progress after a year of treatments and rest. The lack of results I was seeing did not line up with my diagnosis of an RSI. Curable helped me far more than any physiotherapy, massage or acupuncture appointment and at a fraction of the cost. Once I started with the app and began listening to all of the brain science clips, everything I was hearing resonated with my experience and made so much sense. The techniques I have learned and continue to learn are invaluable to me. I love having the lightning icon function, it’s like insurance to know you have a friend to support you when the pain gets bad. Thank you Curable!!!
Great evidence based tool !
from Chris@NMCC on Jul 29, 2018
I had read some of the mind body books out there, but only once I started using the Curable app did I make progress in resolving my migraines. I have felt so much stronger since going through the exercises. They are just the right length to do every day— plus they make it enjoyable. You owe it to yourself to at least try it— all you have to lose is pain’s hold on your life.
from lana-mana on Jul 29, 2018
I’m not sure if I would have tried this app if I hadn’t been desperate, but I’m so glad I did. The lessons are curated wonderfully and explain scientific aspects clearly. I have been using the app for a few months now and have seen a remarkable change in my chronic migraines. While I wouldn’t say I’m cured, I think I’m headed in that direction, and I am so thankful.
Changed our lives 5++++ stars
from Er-RN-mom-of-4 on Jul 28, 2018
My 17 year old daughter has suffered from chronic pain her whole life, but 2 years ago she got caught in a pain cycle that she just couldn’t get out of. We tried ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING...multiple medications, 2 surgeries, IV infusions, holistic approach, acupuncture, meditation, special dentistry, allergy shots, and more. I literally can’t count the number of doctors visits we went to with little to no relief. She had to go on independent study her entire sophomore year of high school and would only come out of her room for 30 minutes at a time because of her constant, extreme pain. Then one day a family member who knew our story sent us a link to Curable. I sat in bed and cried when I read the stories that we so similar to my daughters. I started listening, and the Pain-fear cycle resonated so closely to how I know she felt. The biggest obstacle was giving her, yet another, possible solution to her pain. Hope is a very dangerous thing and we were both very wary, but she started listening and she agreed to try it. It wasn’t an immediate solution, but slowly but surely she began to gain control. She started to understand what triggered her headaches and made changes to her thought process about the pain. Fast forward to 1 year of Curable and I can truly say, LIFE CHANGING!!! She finished her junior year, learning to manage stress and pain and the highlight was that she went on a school trip to Iceland at the beginning of the summer (yes this is the girl who couldn’t come out of her room for more than 30 minutes). She hit the Panic button when she found out her hotel didn’t have darkening shades, which got her through! I am so grateful for Curable. I am an ER nurse, and so I take care of people in pain for a living. The opioid crisis is so very real and destructive and I watch it everyday. I regularly add information about the Curable App to people’s discharge paperwork explaining the benefits and how it helped my daughter. Thank you for making this app so accessible and I will continue to recommend it to anyone in chronic pain.
So far, awesome!
from noellechistine on Jul 28, 2018
I’ve only been using this app for a week and a half, but after using it every day I have already worked through some feelings that may possibly be playing a role in my migraines. This app is centered around what research has uncovered about the brain. I purchased this app specifically to learn to retrain my brain from thinking it needs to be in a chronic state of migraines. What I didn’t expect was how much it helps work through some tough emotions that also my be at the root of the pain. For as much as I invest in medications for my illness, the price for this app was nothing in comparison. I will revisit to review more after I’ve been working in the app for a few months.
from blblue78 on Jul 28, 2018
Finding Curable has changed my life. I’m not cured...yet. But I see improvement every day. Curable has opened up a whole new world for me and I’m forever in its debt.
Definitely worth the price
from LindaAmerica on Jul 28, 2018
Since the price of the subscription is about the same as a visit to the chiropractor, I figured, “Why not?” I love all the neuroscience education. The most valuable lesson has been how to stop a twinge of pain from escalating into a major episode.
It’s been very helpful
from grateful20 on Jul 12, 2018
I suffer from chronic pain and an autoimmune disease. I’ve tried so many things to manage the physical and psychological toll it takes. As a mental health therapist myself, I know a lot of these techniques and understand how they work. I have to say that the combination of using this app followed by a session with my own therapist made a huge difference in my life and well-being. I don’t think I would have gotten there without first using this app. Thanks, Curable Crew!
This app is much needed in the world
from Tai Kuncio on Aug 3, 2018
This app is much needed in the world - thank you for creating it! I've been to so many doctors over the last few years and paid a lot of money for much of the same info that I could have gotten from Curable for a few dollars a month! This app can help anyone who is suffering from chronic pain - regardless of what kind of pain it is.
I feel a lot more in control of my pain now
from Sara Parker on Jul 31, 2018
I was definitely a skeptic at first, but I'm so glad I gave this a shot. Not cured yet, but I've seen significant progress in just a couple of weeks. I feel a lot more in control of my pain now. If you're unsure like I was, the free trial is useful and I'd recommend listening to the podcast as well; it's very informative.
Improvements in a Short Time
from Trae444 on Jun 18, 2018
The Curable app has helped me so much already in the short time that I have used it! I suffer with chronic pelvic pain from endometriosis. The writing exercises, guided meditations, and education on pain have helped me manage my pain in a way that I have been unable to previously. I am a psychotherapist and have been recommending this app to my clients as an adjunct to treatment with me. Highly recommend this app.
