The Telegraph, a world renowned newspaper, recently released a fascinating article about new findings in the relationship between emotions and chronic pain. Scientists have discovered why some people don’t recover from illness or injury, while others do — their emotions! Brain scan studies showed how chronic pain emerges as a result of an emotional response to an injury. Lead scientist Professor Vania Apakarian clarified that injury itself is not enough to explain ongoing pain in patients.
The results from this study were published in the journal Nature Neuroscience.
This type of finding is exactly what led me to my research and work in emotional healing after suffering from my own chronic illness. I was determined to find out why some people recover fully from injury or illness, while for others, it becomes a chronic state. And, without any scientific studies (although they sure would have been nice) I came to the same conclusions.
I hope this helps people understand why using energy therapy techniques for emotional healing can be so important. It’s an incredible way to access some of the emotional energy that might be holding healing at bay. I know how hard it can be to look at our emotionls when we’re so busy just trying to get healthy, but this piece might make it all go a little faster. Now, wouldn’t that be nice? :)
