Chronic Pain and Emotional Distress

Chronic pain and emotional distress are very common problems in today’s society. In fact, nearly 20% of adults (30% of women) in North America suffer from chronic pain. Chronic pain and emotional distress often go hand in hand because you really can’t have one without the other. When the body hurts as a result of injury, illness, or stress, the mind often follows suit with feelings of stress, anxiety, and worry.

Likewise, when you experience a traumatic event, crises, or chronic stress, the resulting emotional distress is often accompanied by physical symptoms such as headaches, back pain, arthritic pain, nerve pain, and gastrointestinal problems, among others.

However, many people fail to realize just how much physical and emotional pain can be connected and in fact responsible for one another. The mind and body are inextricably connected, and so it’s important to get a handle on the brain’s interaction with the body for recovery and maintenance of optimum health, as the brain (mind) controls every aspect of the body.

Therefore, it’s critical to learn how to control and influence the brain and nervous system’s behaviour in order to optimize its interaction with the body to your benefit in order to achieve your health goals. I can help you do just that.
