Why do I hurt? or Why doesn’t my body do what I want it to do?
In a private counseling session I usually interrogate the body by observing the colors, textures, and smells of the body and by testing the sensitivity of pressure points and the relative strength of muscles. I point out that the body is always “talking” to us, and it always tells the truth. I draw from my training in engineering and my experience with “human machines” to help translate the language of the body (pain) into English so that we can determine what the best course of action might be to re-establish balance or homeostasis. The body knows what it does not need or want and it lets us know by making us uncomfortable.
• Sometimes the “problem” can be addressed with a simple change in diet and/or environment. • Sometimes we may need to “nudge” the body with herbs and/or other natural remedies including different forms of massage or tissue manipulation. • On rare occasions, drugs and/or surgery would be best to relieve the situation. • You and I will spend about an hour together examining your choices and will decide on an action plan together!
