Interesting angle on the mind/body relationship as it relates to pain – thank you Alex! My own experience of the ‘pain loop’ is that physical pain often has a ‘stuck’ quality and this can be reflected in my thinking and emotions becoming similarly ‘heavy.’ As energy is unblocked and allowed to move – whether through techniques such as EFT or gentle physical movement (e.g. Qi Gong) – the pain often dissipates and the mood lifts.
