What really causes back and neck pain - the META-Health explanation

Posted by Sami Thorpe | 2nd December 2013

Back and Neck Pain is one of the most common muscular-skeletal pains experienced in the UK. Managing pain is a common use for energy therapies.

We would usually grade the severity of the pain on a scale from 0 to 10, 0 being no pain or distress through to 10 being very severe.

This is called the SUDs scale; Subjective Units of Discomfort (or Distress). With a benchmark, it's possible to use such techniques as EFT Meridian Tapping, HeartMath or EmoTrance to move the energy within the body field and change the body''s physiological response to pain.

A number of things happen when we do this, depending on the focus of the technique.  

If, however, we go more deeply, our response to pain is usually conditioned by our perception of a situation, the real or perceived extra demand required of the body to perform during a more stressful period or for a more stressful task.

Therefore, if we know what the task is that the body is under stress to perform, we can understand what the body is doing to adjust.  

The Two Phases Of Dis-ease In Relation To Back & Neck Pain

There are two phases to every dis-ease process, the stress phase, where function of the organ is increased, followed by a repair phase, where the organ tissue repairs and returns back to normal function.

When we understand what the body is doing, we can understand why it is doing it and the message it is giving us about our perception and belief about ourself or the world. With this information, we no longer have to just manage symptoms, we can go straight to the root cause and identify the original trauma or trigger the creates the dis-ease process in the first place.

In the video below I explain to my META-Health students some of the typical META-Messages behind back and neck pain.  


Now I'd love to hear from you!

I'd love to know if you've experienced back or neck pain and if any of these explanations have helped you to decipher the root cause of what was really going on.
