Pain and fatigue are miserable companions. For many, these are difficult areas for their medical professionals to diagnose – and they are also tough to find symptom management and relief.

Many clients often come for Reiki treatment, PEMF Therapy, Meditation experiences, and therapeutic music sessions after hitting a wall with traditional avenues. They are hoping for relief, for some kind of answer to, or awareness of, the cause or root of their pain and/or fatigue. As an energy healing practitioner, we look at the whole body and the mind-body connection to give assistance to the body’s healing ability.

Stress and anxiety are typically either an underlying cause of pain and fatigue or a symptom that presents because of them. The modalities used at Into the Spirit help to address stress and anxiety along with cellular health and energy balance. We often think of the body as only physical, but we are made up of trillions of cells that send energy signals across a vast network of pathways inside and around the body. Complimenting your medical treatment regimen and/or medications by addressing your energetic body can help realign, re-balance, or reconnect the body’s systems and natural healing capabilities.

The French physician, Dr. Albert Schweitzer, proclaimed in 1931:

Pain is a more terrible lord of mankind than even death itself.

PAIN

According to the National Institute of Health,
  • Pain affects more Americans than diabetes, heart disease, and cancer combined.
  • Pain is cited as the most common reason Americans access the health care system. It is a leading cause of disability and it is a major contributor to health care costs.
  • According to the National Center for Health Statistics (2006), approximately 76.2 million, one in every four Americans, have suffered from pain that lasts longer than 24 hours and millions more suffer from acute pain.
  • Chronic pain is the most common cause of long-term disability.
  • The diversity of pain conditions requires a diversity of research and treatment approaches.
  • Pain can be a chronic disease, a barrier to cancer treatment, and can occur alongside other diseases and conditions (e.g. depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injury).
  • For infants and children, pain requires special attention, particularly because they are not always able to describe the type, degree, or location of pain they are experiencing.
  • COX-2 (cyclooxygenase-2) is a major contributor to pain associated with inflammation. A study of genes affected by COX-2 led to the discovery of its role in connection to multiple cellular pathways that contribute to pain relief and adverse side-effects.
  • Behavioral interventions for pain also demonstrate promise for providing pain relief either in conjunction with or in lieu of drug interventions. For example, NIH-supported research has demonstrated that individualized pain management programs may reduce cancer pain for some patients.
