One of the issues I work on most commonly with people is physical pain. This is usually long-term pain for which the person has not been able to find any lasting solution. As opposed to acute pain where there has been an obvious injury such as a broken limb from which the body is still actively recovering.
Emotional release techniques, such as Emotional Freedom Techniques or ‘tapping’, can assist with aspects of pain by enabling you to release stressful thoughts, feelings and beliefs that may be contributing to the pain. Your body is then able to more easily relax and get on with doing its job because it is no longer being actively triggered by past painful events.
In addition to the obvious physical symptoms of pain and common side effects such as sleep deprivation, fatigue and anxiety, there are many other lesser known factors that can increase feelings of stress related to pain. For example:
In my work with people with people with physical pain I have found there are often core underlying emotions of anger, guilt or shame. These emotions can be more difficult to address on your own as they are often more unpleasant to face. Our tendency is to try and ignore them or push them down in the hope they might just go away! Unfortunately, the more we try to ignore these feelings the more they tend to create stress in our body. It is quite normal behaviour to do this. Because the reality is who wants to feel more pain by looking at these unpleasant emotions! But you do have a choice.
