Chronic pain can make it seem like there’s no relief – no way out.
As time goes on, it can seem normal to be in pain. Often, a coping mechanism is to accept that this is how things are.
I’ve been there – months or years on end. I had chronic pain for so many months – even extending to years. Back in those days, it was very dark and I couldn’t really imagine what it would be like to be pain-free. Pain robbed me of clear thinking, the ability to get things done, and just about all of my energy.
Things can be different.
Things can be different though. In my own journey, my life has been transformed from the dark cloud of chronic pain into brighter days that are generally pain-free.
This story isn’t just mine. Patients in the Markey Cancer Center had clear decreases in pain and stress when they received Jin Shin Jyutsu acupressure sessions. Research reports are listed on the official Jin Shin Jyutsu organization website.
A client recently had a similar experience. When this lady came to me, she had so much pain in her arthritic hands. So much so that she was having difficulty holding things – even dropping a glass on the tile floor without realizing it. She takes good care of herself through diet, exercise, and medications. But she was still suffering, and she was looking for chronic pain relief. On the day of her session, she rated her pain as 7 out of 10.
We started the session. She relaxed and rested on the padded table. I gently helped her energy flow more freely. After her session, she was much more relaxed. And more importantly, when she flexed her hands, she realized that her pain had decreased to a 3 out of 10. All in one hour.
Jin Shin Jyutsu sessions for relief
I invite you to consider coming for a Jin Shin Jyutsu acupressure session. Whether it’s for chronic pain, stress, tension, or other health conditions. And many clients are already in good nick but would like a bit of a break and pampering.
Self care to feel better
In the meantime, you may find it helpful to do a bit of self-care. One hold that often helps people is to gently hold their ankle in this way. You can hold your right or left ankle to relieve pain anywhere in your body. This is one of many simple holds from Jin Shin Jyutsu acupressure.
