Did you know that physical pain in the body is often a sign that something else in our being is needing our attention? True, sometimes our physical body gets injured, and we literally are "in pain". Other times, our emotional, mental and/or spiritual body gets injured. Over time, this injury may manifest physically as "pain".
Why does this happen? It happens to help us. Really? How is pain helpful? Well, pain is discomfort and the discomfort is meant to get our attention so we deal with the "injury" and heal it. Here at the Sanctuary there are many ways we support this process of uncovering pain.
How so? In addition to relieving physical pain, massage and yoga are often doorways for us to explore the other types of pain: emotional, mental and spiritual. For those of us ready to enter through the doorway to a deeper place, we may be curious about reiki energy healing or shamanic energy healing. These forms of energy healing are designed to bring us more fully into "what's really going on" so we may heal at the root level.
The result? The pain is gone once and for all. Speaking of pulling up those roots...more on this next time!
