Emotional and physical pain, when processed in the brain are probably quite similar.
After all, emotional pain causes physical issues, a change in muscle tension and can also change our immunity and hormone cycle amongst a whole load of other areas.
The thing is, when people come to me with physical pain they forget to mention the emotional shit they are going through. They feel it's irrelevant to their knee, shoulder or back pain.
But sometimes, it's exactly that emotional shit that needs dealing with in order to change the physical.
NOTHING in the body works in isolation. NOTHING!
