Bioenergetic handling of pain conditions
Pain can have a severe impact on a person’s quality of life. Often times, all treatments fail and that is when a more holistic biophysical approach should be considered.
One concept of the biophysical approach is that pain is the connective tissue’s cry for energy. With this in mind, the bioenergetic causes of pain can begin to be identified.
So what are the possible energetic disturbances that can lead to musculoskeletal disorders, which in turn, create pain?
Here are the most common ways that pain can manifest:
– blockage of the flow of energy in a meridian (pathway of energy according to Traditional Chinese Medicine), which runs through the affected area;
– blockage in an energy center / chakra (chakra, according to Hindu tradition);
– stress on the body caused by electromagnetic radiation (e.g. geopathic stress);
– interference fields due to scarring (e.g. old injuries) in the body;
– blockage of the temporomandibular (jaw) joint and teeth;
– disorders of internal organs;
– poor absorption and / or utilization of nutrients;
– emotional distress and / or traumatic events, negative emotions (e.g. regrets, financial burdens, increased sense of responsibility);
– depressed mood.
The aforementioned factors can strain the body’s self-regulatory function, which then allows complaints to gradually (or not so gradually) manifest.
Blockages at the “energetic level” may explain the cases of patients whose symptoms do not match the findings of the imaging tests. It happens quite often, that the conventional medical examinations, e.g. computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging cannot justify the intensity of the patient’s pain. On the other hand, there are many patients with significant findings in their vertebrae but with no pain, who do not require any treatment. The concept of energy level “blockages” as we call them may therefore be a better perspective in which to understand the phenomena of pain. To be able to work on the energetic level, one must approach each person’s case holistically (as a whole) and individually.
The biophysical practitioner must identify which of the many possible contributing (causal) factors are at play for each individual and apply the appropriate therapy for each specific factor. Such an approach is the basis for a successful treatment that will yield long-term results. The actual therapeutic approach typically has two steps. First, the body’s own information can be used to focus on restoring the flow of energy in the tissues that are of concern. Secondly, once the flow of energy is restored, the contributing factors (e.g. toxins, negative emotions) can be addressed. The interference fields of toxins and disruptive micro-organisms are neutralized and negative emotions are either also neutralized or harmonized depending on the case. In this way, the inflammation in the individual tissues subsides and the pain, acute or chronic, goes away. This allows the body to regain its ability to regulate itself. The results in most cases are immediate while the procedure is completely painless, non-invasive and without side-effects.
