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.

Scientific Studies on Reiki

By Sue Siebens

While most recommendations for Reiki are based on anecdotal stories about how it felt good or eased pain this pain or helped relaxation and stress release, there are more and more actual scientific studies being done.  It’s been shown that added Reiki therapy can improve outcomes of conventional therapy, including there reduction of pain and faster healing which resulted in less pain medicines and quicker recoveries.

Reiki Really Works: A Groundbreaking Scientific Study

I’ve found that pre-surgery and pre-procedure sessions have helped clients be calmer and more “prepared” for the upcoming “trauma”. ┬áSessions after, whether in ICU or at home have lessened pain and improved attitudes/outlooks quickening healing processes and progress. ┬áSessions after chemo and radiation treatments can be a great tools to lessen side-affects.
