Focusing on physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual issues and offering more balanced and effective ways of look at and addressing pain management.
Holistic Pain Management is all about a healing approach that addresses the body, mind and spirit or the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of an individual person and their pain.
The mainstream medical professions look to treat the body and in the majority of cases overlook the mind. Mainstream mental health practitioners appear to look to treat the mind and again in the majority overlook the physical body.
Neither considers the spiritual and both schools are guilty of medical thought as they will aim to treat the presenting symptoms with medication or surgery rather than addressing the causes of the presenting symptoms.
The holistic health approach cannot see the body, mind and spirit as separate entities and will suggest medication and surgery only when essential and after all other solutions have been sought and tried. It will look to the underlying causes of symptoms instead of just treating or blocking the symptoms of pain with a drug.
We must all be aware that Holistic belief upholds the one main truth that the body, mind and spirit are not independent of one another, that they are all interlinked. Because of this what affects one, has to, by the laws of nature, affect the others.
Holistic treatment approaches are highly personalised for the differing needs of each individual. You the client and me the therapist discuss your options together to develop the holistic health care plan and thus manage their pain. Within the holistic pain management concept you will find a wide variety of different treatment approaches.
Holistic Pain Management may well focus upon aspects such as
A holistic approach to pain management encourages the individual to be empowered and to experience different ways to look after themselves and to educate themselves about their personal health and the reasons for their pain and symptoms. It should seek to encourage them to take an active role in their treatment and health care, rather than giving all the power to the medical profession.
Pain is an inevitable part of life. Much of the pain that we experience cannot be removed or treated, so we, as a race, have no choice but to learn to live with it positively and to the best of our abilities. A person can choose to seek medical help for their pain, but unfortunately, there may come a time when that pain can no longer be successfully treated or managed with mainstream medical intervention and it would be at this point, that seeking other forms of help or support or treatment may be the way forward.
Holistic pain management and treatment is about seeing and treating pain not only as a physical condition but as an emotional and a spiritual one as well, something that is caused and experienced by every part of the body and therefore Holistic Pain Management is about treating the whole, not just the symptom of the pain.
After each session you will be armed with a techniques that will help you manage your pain at home - they are simple yet effective techniques that anyone can learn and do.
