If there was ever a under-represented malady in mental health, Pain Management would be a forerunner.
Pain imparts physical reaction and emotional reactions. Pain is often accompanied by any number of psychological reactions which may include depression, anger, grief or any number of reactions. Holistic treatments that treat the body and mind are an important component of pain management. Energy Psychology provides hope. In the ever expanding options of holistic treatment, Energy Psychology is a promising option.
A great deal of research has concluded the effectiveness of Energy Psychology for a variety of mental health conditions. As many as 60 peer reviewed medical and science journals have published articles with favorable results. A recent study in the Journal of Alternative Medicine, showed 76% of hospital patients showed marked improvement in pain relief after participating in energy healing techniques.
Emancipation from Pain Lies Includes Changing How the Mind Internalizes the Pain
Energy work around the world often utilizes acupuncture points. With energy psychology, tapping acupuncture points while tuning in to the emotional reaction (ie sadness that is associated with the pain) disrupts the cognitive and emotional process that is associated with the pain inducing stimulus. The client still experiences the pain inducing stimulus, but the emotional or cognitive reaction begins to change and losses the intensity of the mal-adaptive emotion.
People who can control pain are still able to engage in the activates that make life meaningful and joyful. When pain becomes overwhelming, sadness, anger, or grief can become the lens of our emotional and cognitive framework. Energy psychology offers an encouraging treatment option in the treatment of pain management.
