Stopping the cycle of pain

We now know that our brains have the ability to learn and change throughout our lives. This characteristic of the brain is referred to as neuroplasticity.

Neuroplasticity also allows our brain to learn to feel pain even when the painful stimulus is no longer present. When we experience pain for an extended period of time our brains may ‘learn’ to expect this pain to be present even though the original cause of the pain has been removed. As a result, our acute or short-term pain turns into chronic or long-term pain.

The good news is that just as our brain can learn to expect pain in a certain area even when there is no painful stimulus present it can also learn to not expect that pain to occur.

There is a very strong relationship between physical pain and mood or emotional states. The relationship between pain and emotion provides an opportunity to interrupt this pain cycle by addressing the emotional energy component of the pain cycle.

Somatoemotional Release (SER), an advanced Cranial Sacral approach, is a treatment approach that works with patients to help interrupt the repeating cycle of pain and unlearn the chronic pain response, often improving mood and increasing general energy levels at the same time.
