Letting Go of Chronic Pain

By Sue Siebens

Many people endure years of pain. Chronic pain is described as persistent pain that lasts longer than 6 months. It can be the “unhealed” result of accidental injury or surgical interventions and come on slowly as aches and fatigue. Eventually long standing pain can affect people mentally with lower frustration and anger flash points and activate/reactivate anxieties and depression. Often chronic pain will affect family and friend relationships and job performance and life satisfaction.

The CDC estimates that 50 million Americans, just over 20% of the adult population, has chronic pain. 20 million of them have pain that is severe enough that it limits work or life activities.[2]

A recent-ish study (2016) at King’s College London[1] has shown that even small benign neuron injuries leave a cellular “footprint”. These footprints or markers carry the memory of the initial injury by affecting the local gene expression of neurons and immune system responses via microglia changes.

Why is this interesting? It leads to an understanding of how and why locally overly sensitive nervous system are formed. If we understand what is happening there, we can make a strategy to change it.

How do we correct the markers and reset the memory of the initial injury so that the local area returns to a “normal’, healthy response….pain-free and functioning properly?

Chronic pain is a complex of different systems working together to produce an undesired result or pain. The stressed-out overworked mind, the strained hypersensitive body, and the frazzled unfocused spirit all need to be addressed, calmed and reset., The trick is to Combining

Whether your chronic pain is localized from a break or a cut, multi-point like arthritis or more generalized like Fibromyalgia, its relief and resolution will probably be multi-faceted.

An invaluable addition to your chronic pain therapeutic regimen is Bowen Therapy

All tissue injuries, even the small benign ones in the study, affect the local fascia. and what is the master of fascia healing? Bowen Therapy!

It’s impossible for injury not to affect fascia, since it covers every square centimeter of our insides. The collagen proteins of fascia are the strings of connective tissue that support and link literally everything. And it feeds all other tissues in our body.

Fascia is the inter-cellular super-highway of fluid, delivering nutrients and oxygen from arteries to our cells and removing debris and carbon dioxide from cells back to veins. When tissue is damaged, the repairing/healing scar tissue can act as dams in the flow, cutting off the road to necessary repair ingredients and trapping waste.

Bowen Therapy is excellent in realigning tissue, releasing adhesion and restoring flow to the fluid highways. Now the repair systems can do it’s job.

Local pain memories need the full support of the immune and repair systems in order to reset.

You can let go of chronic pain, daily struggles and often mute suffering.

Give Bowen therapy a try and find a difference in you life.

Awakening Human Potential

By Sue Siebens

When I started learning and working with Emotional Resolution (EmRes), I thought: “Hey, EmRes is great stuff. There are lots of people with over-the-top emotions, trapped in their behaviors and locked into patterns that seem unbreakable.”  And EmRes can certainly tackle those myriad of “large” emotions, that swamp people’s lives and keep them imprisoned in cycles of fear, rage and abuse, to themselves and others. 

We have the Potential to be Super-Great

Now that I’ve worked with EmRes for a while, with clients, friends, fellow practitioners and myself, I’ve come to realize that, Yes, it works great for people with “big” emotional issues. But we all have tensions inside of us. They range from irritable, snappy, or loudly expressed to bitter, callous, quiet eye-rolling or coldly indifferent.

When I was working in IT, I was frequently under high levels of stress for long periods of time. It’s kind of the nature of the beast in IT. And occasionally, I’d blow up, directly my anxiety outward. Subconsciously, it was my way to scare people away so that they would leave me alone and my sensations would go away. The physical sensation that my brain used to tell me that something was wrong. (but I didn’t know it at the time.)

In our schools, there are 6 year old kids that are throwing tables across the room. Why? Because they are afraid. They have so much tension inside and by throwing the table, they are trying to release it .  They are trying to control it the uncomfortable sensations–shut it down.

As a parent, how many times have we yelled at our kids, then regret it and maybe apologize later–“I’m sorry, I love you”? But then sometime later the child will do it again, or something similar, as they do, and we react again, apologize again? What sensations are we trying extinguish?

As a care-giver to someone that used to be sharp as a tack, but now has trouble finding their shoes, we can be impatient and snappish. Why is the emotion surging, over what is now a matter of fact in Mom’s life?

The subtle physical sensations that represent our emotions, are put there by our brain to alert us to a perceived situation that is similar, sometimes vaguely so, to some past event that was extremely upsetting to us. We employed the now invoked emotion to “survive” that episode. The unconscious mind remembers all these events in our lives. It is trying to prepare us for a new such event by invoking the emotion, much like blood-pressure goes up in preparation for a physical activity.

So when you react at someone, recognize the cycle of

  • The incident — usually something done around you e.i., Mom does something irritating
  • The tension – your subconscious reacts and creates physical sensations, a new tension in the body
  • The snappish comment, raised voice, heavy sigh, take a breath (or two), etc – attempt to release or control the sensations
  • The contrition – if the release extended outward to affect another
  • The calm – AHHH, relief! the sensation is gone.

Slamming doors and rolling eyes, shows that we still have something to work on. Your reactions and behaviors are the telltales of what is lying under the surface. The reacts don’t resolve the emotions, they just temporarily relieve the tension.


EmRes does resolve the emotion of the situation. It resets the subconscious mind’s connect between the situation and the emotion — there is no danger here, you don’t need to provoke that emotion any more. It’s done, that emotional situation is gone…forever.

On one level, EmRes is for people with major trauma, that need major shifts.  But on another level, it is really about resolving the simple interactions that are not “above the line”. 

Our work on ourselves is very important. ANYTHING that brings on a physical sensation is “actionable”.

EmRes is a tool for accelerating our Human Growth Potential. 

The more content we are, the better we are for those around us. If we are not content, we can’t fake it and be present for others.  And every time you do an eye-roll, you are not content.

We can grow and evolve into more decent, wonderful, better human beings that we were yesterday. We have the potential to be Super-Great.

Are you read to shed your unwanted reactions and be Super?
