If you often have negative thoughts, they undoubtedly will result in some sort of physical ailment.
“Thought have a peculiar quality of becoming their physical equivalents”
– Napoleon Hill, 1937
Emotions are chemical levels in your brain; your body is constantly trying to maintain equilibrium. So, if one emotion skyrockets that chemical becomes flagged and signals the tear duct to open as an exit to release that emotion packaged neatly within a tear.
Paying attention to where your pain is in your body can sometimes give you an idea of what part of your life needs a little more attention.
For instance, hip pain, may indicate a decision of big change; right side is of control; left side is more emotional. Knees relate to relationships that need to be dealt with. Ankles are the tedious issues that bite at your heels.
If emotions are denied their physical expression, this leads to a state of anxiety that can manifest itself as physical sensations. If the body is tense, sensations are masked.
Our practitioners “listen” to your body by observing and touching. Don’t be fooled. Gentle moves can elicit profound results.
A father develops severe sciatic pain after his daughter’s wedding — admits he doesn’t care for his new son-in-law. A woman has knee pain — admits having relationship issues with someone in her inner circle of friends or family. A man has hip pain — admits he is unsure of an important decision he made for his family.
