I had a client in for an Emorional Resolution or EmRes session followed by a bodywork session. She had been in previously for just bodywork (Bowen) and was intrigued by my description of EmRes. So we did the EmRes session and afterwards she said, ” Most of my physical sensation were in places were I have ongoing pain or other issues.” Her sensations didn’t “start out” on her physical issues but at the end, they were the “last ones” to appear and resolve.
Then I had another client that had a similar experience… Previous session was Energywork (Reiki, etc) and this session was EmRes + Bowen for body pain we had discussed before. As the EmRes session wound down, his physical sensations were in the areas of his physical dysfunction.
These sessions confirm, again, the link between the emotional/mental and physical layers of our being. I believe the EmRes session is taking off the Emotional/Mental congestion off the body, so that the physical issues can be addressed and released.
I don’t know David Wolfe, but I follow his page/blog. He commonly touches on topics interest that are thoughtful, compassionate and informative. So I was delighted to read his blog today and see him call out Bowen for the chronic pain relief associated with Fibromyalgia.
This is very exciting to see Bowen mentioned and recommended by those outside the Bowen community. It really is a wonder technique that works wonders on all sorts of acute and chronic issues.
Give it a try! It is one of the best natural healing techniques to use.
More tidbits about Parkinson’s that I find particularly interesting…..
Parkinson’s and the Vagus Nerve
This article is about how ” Parkinson’s disease (PD) may be caused by an enteric neurotropic pathogen entering the brain through the vagal nerve, a process that may take over 20 years. ” Translated to plain English “enteric neurotropic pathogen” means a “gut” “nerve loving” “microorganism (virus, bacteria, etc)” In the case of this study, it’s a virus that travels up the vagus nerve to the brain and affects the brain producing Parkinson’s.
What rings my bells is that the Vagus Nerve is involved.
The vagus nerve comes in pairs. They both communicate with the vital organs. However the vagus nerve that branches to the left side of the body more strongly services the organs below the diaphragm: stomach, liver, spleen, pancreas, kidney, intestines. The right branch more directly services the organs above the diaphragm: the lung, heart, pharynx.
And Bowen Therapy has an excellent procedure that addresses vagus nerve function directly. It affects just about all things in the chest and gut–pain and discomfort to rhythms stabilization, pressure levels, stones and spasms, infections, depression and hormone balances and behavioral issues. just about everything and the kitchen sink. No, it don’t cure these issues. But Bowen Vagus procedure is very complimentary to any treatment plan–working the fascia to release any strains on the vagus nerve, freeing them to function to their fullest potential.
Many of my friends and clients with Fibromyalgia have shared with me how frustrating their disease. Their frustration comes when they reach out for help and feel like they get nothing or get treated like they are crazy-making it up. And it is confusing stuff– how can you feel bad all over and nothing is “broken”.
But there is work in the scientific community that is explaining how that happens. From my understanding is boils down to too many nerves all in crisis–sending signals that something is wrong. I’m sure that’s a gross oversimplification 🙂 but it’s a model I can work with.
Along with many other chronic disorders, individuals with fibromyalgia can get a great deal of symptom relief using Bowen Therapy. Keeping the muscles and fascia as relaxed and flexible as possible is key!
