Dr. Jessen Mukalel
Anesthesiology & Pain Consultant
Dr. Jessen Mukalel is not your typical pain management doctor. He has a unique style crafted based on relationships he has built with his patients and their needs, as well as his own challenges as a pain patient himself. He advocates for opioid-free pain management by utilizing reversible diagnostic injections to identify pain generators and predict the success of therapeutic interventional procedures.
He began training in Hungary, Europe, and finished in the Netherlands Antilles Islands in 2006. He started with surgical training and converted to specializing in Anesthesia in Chicago, Illinois. From there, he completed his acute pain management and regional anesthesia fellowship in Pittsburgh and continued as a fellowship director in the same field at the University of Texas. Eventually, Dr. Mukalel owned his own practice in Tampa, Florida, and eventually to where he is currently, The Woodlands, Texas: Pain MD Houston.
My area of specialty is treating patients who have experienced abuse, trauma, and pain connected to their religious and spiritual backgrounds. I work with pastors, missionaries, and seminary students, but also those who identify within the LGBTQ+ community, the evangelical community, and those who no longer practice a form of faith due to the painful experiences they’ve encountered.
I also work with patients experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, relational conflict, emotional detachment, and general mental health concerns.
You will likely have insights if you are in therapy, practicing meditation, or exploring your inner world with psychedelic medicine. Insights are great! They help clarify thinking about your life. But it’s one thing to have insights, and it’s quite another to embody them. To change your behaviors, to change your patterns, to break out of the cycles that keep you dissatisfied, you need to identify, engage, and practice new ways of being.
I am a meditation teacher, psychedelic guide, and integration coach. In the thirty years I have supported folks, I’ve learned that profound insights and experiences may be great, but integration work is crucial to fostering lasting transformation.
My work draws heavily on Buddhist psychology, Buddhist meditation, Internal Family Systems (IFS), and contemporary research on the science of human flourishing to help achieve change that lasts.
