True Pain Relief &The Life Energy of Wellness & Wellness

A physical symptom is a sign or communication from the body that there is an imbalance of energy in its system. Treating only the physical symptom is to mask or sweep under the rug the root of the problem and not obtain true, lasting pain relief.

For many years, the body had been regarded as a sum of unrelated parts. Western medicine looked upon the body as a physical, biomechanical machine that is controlled by the brain and the nervous system and kept alive by the heart. Eastern medicine saw the body as the sum of its parts: a whole, integrated system made up of different levels including mental, spiritual and emotional energies. Holistic medicine infers that we look after the “whole” person and see the entire big picture.

Thousands of years ago there was a separation between religion and science and in the West the body came to be viewed as an intricate mechanism separate from the spirit…oops! That isn’t going to work out very well for us, is it? When there is a physical symptom it is a sign or communication from the body that there is an imbalance or discombobulation of mental, spiritual and emotional energy in the system. Treating only the physical outward or superficial symptom is akin to masking the root of the problem like sweeping debris under a rug.

In Eastern medicine there is a vital force known as Ki that animates this biomechanical machine. In India it is known as Prana and in China it is known as Chi. When Ki energy leaves the body it becomes lifeless. We are more than just a physical body that we can see and touch, which is one of the features that differentiates us humans from the animal kingdom.

Why is it so hard for so many of us in this smaller, interconnected and more informed world we’re living in to believe that we are made of energy? Just because we cannot see it we think it can’t be possible. Religious people have their blind beliefs without the need of seeing their Creator. Everything in this world, from the sunshine that warms our skin to the water that quenches our thirst, is made of energy. Energy merely is information that vibrates or moves; these energies that move at slow speed, you can see and touch like the chair you are sitting on, the desk you are leaning on or the body you are living in! Other energies vibrate faster like radio waves, microwaves or email transmissions that you send and receive daily; they are invisible but you know they exist.

Our thoughts, beliefs, emotions and feelings are also energy that vibrates at a higher rate; you don’t see them but you do feel them…or maybe you don’t. When you don’t feel or acknowledge them and push them aside without expressing them they pile up and become dense unconsciousness, unreadable chunks of chaos, vibrating slower and slower, causing physical restrictions and pain in your body affecting your ability to make conscious pragmatic decisions. As we work with you and our energies resonate, you begin to become enlightened and lighten and release those heavy restrictions weighing you down. Together we discover other contributing factors to your physical pain: unconscious emotions, fears, anxieties, stress and tensions, that have been trapped and buried in your fascia and building up in your body for years…; you finally connect with these seemingly irrelevant, unrelated restrictions that lie hidden in different parts of your body. As you feel and understand them, you release the pain as a marvelous transformation occurs… and the restrictions are released, when clarity is yours and you become more present in your life and are more likely to make conscious the choices that best benefit you.
